Hi,

How can I change the thumbnail for a node which is displayed in the skin (via the cloner)?

If I replace an image in the tour (from the file picker, just selecting an alternate image file), THEN re-set the default view AND go to convert panorama > change it to another file format, the thumbnail being displayed in the skin, in the published tour, never updates.

Is there another way to do this?

Thanks!

EDIT: I've found if I go into the skin, select the ht_node_image, go to properties > image and change the compression from e.g. 90. to 80, it'll seemingly re-generate the thumbnails when updating the tour on the local server ... but when pushing up to gnome cloud, the thumbnails DON'T get updated. Either way, there's got to be a quicker / more sensible way to (re-)generate thumbnail images?!

Hi daveosaurus,
If you just create the output again it may not overwrite the preview images, you need to delete the output and create a new one.

Thanks Hopki. In my naivety I disconnected the tour from gnome cloud... and I'm guessing there's no way to reconnect it?

I'm uploading as a new tour, but if there IS a way to reconnect a local project to its cloud project, I'd love to know (can't see anything in the docs).

You can reconnect to an uploaded project.
First, open the Pano2VR project.
Open the Gnome Cloud Browser and right button click on the project and select Connect to current Project.
