I have a problem, the old projects I have with the version 5 works everything perfect, If I open the same project with the version 6 and I apply save without changing nothing the skin element is not working fine.

It's the following problem:
The markers on a floor plan, the points are responsive for a small screens.
I applied a logic block scaling -0.65 for the plan with the markers, everything goes smaller, at the same time I applied a scaling +1.5 only for the markers, then when it goes everything smaller, the markers points don't (easier for the fingers on mobile)
It use to work perfect with the version 5 (no problems at all), with the 6 works more or less, but if you press first one it goes very very small, if you change the marker and then you press again, then it's working fine.

Looks it's a bug.

I've attached an example, if you open it with the v.5 works perfect (just check the skin live preview), with the v.6 as I said is producing errors.

this issue is affecting all my new projects. I appreciate a solution for the next update :-)
thanks in advance!

Hi Manel, I am so sorry but I missed your forum post. I have looked into your skin and see a few things not quite right. We changed some code in V6 so things like Pan North works with active elements when coined in a markertemplate.

How you should set this up is rather than scaling the elements separately you scale the node marker, markertemplate.
So to get your markertemplate working as should, copy the scaling logic block from "marker_normal" or "marker_active" and paste it in to the scaling logic block of the markertemplate. Then remove the scaling logic blocks from both "marker_normal" or "marker_active".

Also in the posted project you have everything in the hide_template container. Only the node marker, (markertemplate), marker_normal and marker_active should be in there. The elements that make up the map should be in the root of the skin or in their own container, then the marker_node1 and marker-node2 should be child elements of the map.

Thank you Hopki

now I remember I've already tried this, and it was not working well.

The problem is with the center of the scaling. It must be the circle. If you do like you are saying, the center isn't the circle anymore (takes the circle and the marker title), then the circle-point moves to another position when you scale the skin on mobiles.

I appreciate a solution. As I said, on the version 5.2.2 works perfectly. The problem I have some projects using some new things from the 6.

thanks again

Regards

Hi Manel,
I have tested this with an iPhone and all is working as I would expect with the scaling in the marker node.
Can you give me more details on what happens when you tested it and what devices you used to test with.

Hopki

Hi Hopki

no, on Pano2VR 6 the points move, like the example, outside the squares. On Pano2VR 5 they remain centered inside.

I'm using the markers on floor plans, that's why is so important

Here de example again (attached).

Hope it'll be solved at the end of the year with the final 6 version.

thanks!

Hi,
Ok having a look at this with fresh eyes and the mother of all brain farts.

This is how the project should be set up.

The container 1_floor should have the scaling logic block to change size of the container and all child elements.

So this said no other element needs any scaling.


The hide_template container should only contain the marker_normal, marker_active and the node marker. The container is then set to not visible.


The container with the floor plan should just contain the map image and marker nodes.
Regards,
Hopki

Hi Hopki

what you are sending and proposing is to erase all the responsive design for mobiles and making the circles small. Thi is not the reason I created this post.

the work attached on the original post from June 15, works flawlessly on the version 5 (like it must be), the version 6 works too, but is creating errors (this is a bug) the first time you press the circle, thats is why I wrote, hope it'll be solved by the next update.

Your propose is not a solution at all. Thanks anyway.

Hi,
OK from your last post I understand! :roll:
The visual was good for me to see exactly what was required, sorry for being a bit slow :)

As said in V6 all this got rewritten to make things work.
If the anchor position of a node marker is set to the centre then where the cross meets is the actual centre.
This was done to make alignment visually easier.

The above illustration shows the node marker cross centred in the square.
You also do the same with the marker_normal and marker_active images.
Then they will be in the middle of the marker nodes cross, here is what it looks like in the skin.
Note, the anchor position of the image alines it to the cross. So for example if you changed the anchor position of the marker_active to bottom fight, the bottom right of the image will be the centre of the marker node.

You will also note that the text box will be offset with your current position settings.
However if you set the text box position anchor to the centre then set position X; to 0 then it will be alined perfectly in the skin with relation to the marker node.

The elements that have the scale logic blocks are:
1_floor:
Player Width, <=, 667, Or
Player Height, <= 500
X: 0.35 Y: 0.35


marker_node1:
Player Width, <=, 667, Or
Player Height, <= 500
X: 2.50 Y: 2.50


marker_node2:
Player Width, <=, 667, Or
Player Height, <= 500
X: 2.50 Y: 2.50


We try not to change things like this but it had to get a rewrite to make the modifies work in active elements.
And of course using the marker nodes cross does help with alining them to Maps/Floor Plans.
Regards,
Hopki
