How to: edit a marker

To edit a marker, first select the marker on your image, and the editable details will appear on the right.

Changing the view Rectangle

The dark view rectangle is the viewport the camera will fly to when the user has opened this marker. This should contain the part of the image that has the detail that the marker is about.

To change this rectangle, simply click to select it, after which you can move and resize it to your needs.

Hint: Make sure the marker main icon is inside this rectangle, otherwise users won't see the (full) popup window when they have opened the marker. It's always a good idea to place the marker itself in the top left of the rectangle, ensuring the popups are displayed fully on many possible different screen sizes.

Styling Markers

Markers are incredibly versatile objects. By default, they simply show a popup that has information. But you can do much more with them -- they can also be used as internal links to other Micrio images, or to activate custom behavior inside your own implementation.
