Rotation count
Lets you set the Rotation count which is the number of full rotations before autospin stops; default is 1 .
Setting the rotation count to -1 results in an infinite auto spin.
High-resolution preload
Setting High-resolution preload to On loads the configured frame range in high quality. Enabling this setting can significantly increase bandwidth usage and page load time.
  • New settings added to out-of-the-box HTML5 eCatalog Viewers - In Setup > Application Setup > Viewer Presets > Universal_HTML5_eCatalog or Universal_HTML5_eCatalog_Adv , the following additions were made to each viewer's respective Configure Viewer page:
New setting
Description
Print
The tab includes a Print quality setting that lets you specify the maximum size of the image that is sent to the printer. Default is 1000 .
Favorites
The tab includes settings for Expiration time and Favorites Thumbnail Size ().
  • Expiration time - Lets you specify the number of days that the collection of Favorites is kept on the user's system before they expire. Each time the user visits the eCatalog and adds or deletes Favorites, the expiration time is reset. Default is 30 days.
  • Favorites Thumbnail Size - Lets you specify the size ( 0-1.0 ) of the thumbnail used for Favorites.
    The setting is expressed as a relative value to the total frame size. For example, a value of 1.0 means that the entire frame image is used for the thumbnail. A value of 0.1 (default) means that ten percent of the frame size is used for the thumbnail.
  • New settings added to out-of-the-box HTML5 Mixed Media Set Viewers - In Setup > Application Setup > Viewer Presets > Universal_HTML5_MixedMedia_dark or Universal_HTML5_MixedMedia_light , the following additions were made to each viewer's respective Configure Viewer page:
New setting
Description
Zoom mode drop-down list
Lets you configure the type of the zoom animation to use. On the left rail, click Viewer Features to access the following Zoom mode options from the drop-down list:
  • continuous (default) - requires a user to click or tap on the image to zoom.
  • inline - runs zoom on mouse hover.
  • auto - automatically applies continuous on desktops and inline on touch devices.
Flyout/Inline Zoom tab
On the left rail, click Flyout/Inline Zoom to access the following available options:
  • Primary Zoom Factor (default: 3 ) and Secondary Zoom Factor (optional; default: -1 ) - Specifies the image magnification for the flyout/inline view, relative to the reset view. Specify an integer or a floating point value of 1.0 or larger.
    You can specify an optional secondary zoom factor. The secondary zoom is accessible by clicking on the main view when the highlight is active. Clicking a second time reverts to the primary zoom factor. A value of -1 disables the secondary zoom factor.
  • Preload Zoom Image (default: Off ) - Set to On (1) to enable preloading of the zoomed image; set to Off (0) to load the zoom image incrementally, as needed.
    If you enable this option, it results in substantially higher bandwidth usage because the zoomed image is loaded in its entirety, even if no zoom action is taken by the user.
  • Tip text for desktop - Lets you specify the text for an optional tip that appears on the viewer for desktop systems.
  • Tip text for mobile devices - Lets you specify the text for an optional tip that appears on the viewer for mobile touch devices.
  • Tip Duration (default: 3 ), Tip Count (default: 1 ), and Tip Fade (default: 0.3 ) - These three options let you specify the display behavior for optional tip text.
    Use Tip Duration to specify the number of seconds the text displays before it hides. If you set the duration to -1 , the tip text displays continuously, even if the user activates zoom.
    Use Tip Count to specify the number of times the text displays when viewing new images in the set. If you set tip count to -1 , the text displays continuously when viewing any image in the set.
    Tip Fade lets you specify the duration of a fade animation that occurs when the text appears or disappears. If you set tip fade to 0 , no fade transition is used.
