Full Screen
Check this option so that the MultiTouchPanel covers the full screen of your WD computer.

Ratio
Please choose between the Display Modes Custom, 16:9 and 16:10, 4:3, 1:1 according to the aspect ratio of your WD computer screen. This is needed to have the devices in the correct aspect ratio inside the MultiTouch Panel.

Relaxed Drag
When Relaxed Drag is enabled, an item will not stop hard at a position to which it was dragged, but it will run out smoothly depending on the dragging speed. This option is active by default.

The Relax time (in ms) and the maximum Relax Delta (in px) may be adjusted in the text fields below "Relaxed Drag". The higher the Relax time, the longer the Item will be dragged. The Relax Delta defines the max. distance in px the Item will be dragged.

Auto Z-Order
When this option is checked, the selected item inside the MultiTouch Panel will automatically be placed in front of other items inside Pandoras Box (if one item overlays another one). This option influences the Z Position of the layer in PB the devices are linked to. Do not use Auto Z-Order, if you have assigned non-default Z Positions to the layers manually.

Please note: this option is not working when controlling former PB products which do not offer the Z-axis.

Example

Left: Item1 is in front of Item4. Right: After selecting Item4 the Z Order changes and Item1 is behind Item4.

Multi Site
The Multi Site Mode allows controlling multiple Servers simultaneously. This is useful when virtual sites can not be used. Check this option and enter the amount of Sites the position and scale data of the MultiTouch Items should be routed to.

Example
MultiTouch Item 1 refers to Site1, Layer1. When Multi Site Mode with 2 Sites is enabled, the data of this Item will now refer to Site1, Layer1 and Site2, Layer 1 as well.

 

Relax Time
When Relaxed Drag is enabled, an item will not stop hard at a position to which it was dragged, but it will run out smoothly depending on the dragging speed. This option is active by default.

Example

wd_multitouch-panel_panel-settings-relaxedDrag-example

The Relax time (in ms) and the maximum Relax Delta (in px) may be adjusted in the text fields below "Relaxed Drag". The higher the Relax time, the longer the Item will be dragged. The Relax Delta defines the max. distance in px the Item will be dragged.

 

Pan Mode
The Pan Mode needs to be checked if you want to move items on the MultiTouch area or out of it by clicking in the background and proceed a move there. This will then apply to all items that have the Pan option enabled.

Please note:
Pan is only working when option [Enable Mouse] is checked inside the MultiTouch Panel and when your device (Mouse, Kinect, AirScan, Multitouchdevice etc.) controls the mouse of your WD computer.

Example

wd_multitouch-panel_panel-settings-pan-mode-example

Pan-Mode is enabled for the MultiTouch Panel and for the Items 1, 2 and 3, but not for Item4.

The two pictures above show the result after clicking in the panel's background and moving the mouse over to the left side:

Item4 stays at its previous position while the Items 1,2 and 3 are moved to the left side as well.
The little + in the panel's background shows you the PAN position.

Panning Limits Left / Right / Top / Bottom
The values inside the text fields define how many percent the MultiTouch area can be moved in each direction when PAN is enabled.

Example
If you change the value for Top and Bottom to 0 (%) you won't be able to move the MultiTouch area up and down, but only to the left and right side.

Bounce
When the Bounce Mode is enabled, an Item running out smoothly with relaxed drag will bounce back from the display border and reverse its direction towards the display region.

Bounce Limits Left / Right / Top / Bottom
