The Display Options in the web app's Publish tool determine which interactive tools and features will be available to the user in the published 3D model. Click on any of the following options to read more about it below.
- Information Panel
- Explore Toolbar
- Label List
- Anatomy Descriptions
- 3D Navigation
- Anatomy Labels
Shows/hides the Information Panel, which contains the Chapter Title, Chapter Description, Label List (only if enabled and the width is ≥961 pixels), and Chapter List* (if the width is ≥961px). The Information Panel appears on the left when the Viewer is ≥961 pixels wide and at the bottom when the Viewer is ≤960 pixels wide.
Small (≤960px wide)
Large (≥961px wide)
*In any given tour, the Chapter List is accessible from one or two places, depending ont he current size of the Viewer:
- The primary Chapter List is always available from the chapter navigation controls.
- The secondary Chapter List is available in the Information Panel only when the current width of the Viewer is ≥961px. When this criterion is met, the secondary Chapter List can be opened by clicking on the chapter title.
Shows/hides both the Anatomy Tree and Search options in the Menu. Use Search to look for specific anatomical structures in a model by name or keyword. Use the Anatomy Tree to browse through all of the structures contained in the model, or "show" hidden surrounding structures to explore spatial relationships.
Shows/hides the Explore menu. Clicking Explore opens a toolbar with the following options:
- Select: Clicking on a structure highlights it in yellow and displays its name, enabling the user to identify it.
- Hide: Clicking on a structure hides it from view, enabling the user to see underlying structures.
- Fade: Clicking on a structure makes it transparent but does not hide it, enabling the user to see underlying structures as well as their relationship to the faded structure.
When fullscreen mode is enabled*, shows/hides Enter Fullscreen in the Menu. Clicking the Enter Fullscreen button will cause the model to span the entire screen, providing a widescreen, immersive experience.
*Fullscreen mode is supported on all devices and browsers with the exception of iPhone browsers. To enable fullscreen mode for embedded models, make sure your published embed code includes allowFullScreen="true" or simply allowfullscreen. When fullscreen mode is not enabled, the Enter Fullscreen button will be replaced by an Open in New Tab option, which will open the model in a new browser tab.
Shows/hides Draw in the Menu. The Draw tool enables the user to draw on and annotate a 2D snapshot of the 3D model to pinpoint or identify key anatomical concepts.
When the Draw tool is opened, the 3D model is converted into a 2D image. Now the user can point out key structures, relationships, or processes by 1) drawing on the image with their mouse/trackpad (web) or finger (mobile) and/or 2) annotating the image with the text utility.
To activate the text utility within the Draw tool:
- Open the Menu in the lower-right corner of the Viewer and select Draw to open the Draw tool.
- Select the Text icon in the toolbar in the lower-right corner of the image.
- Select a different font size from the menu or click or tap anywhere to continue using the default font size (16px).
- Click or tap anywhere on the image to create a new text box.
- To overwrite the placeholder text within the text box:
- Web: With the text box still active, start typing.
- Mobile: Double-tap the text box and then type.
- To edit the text at any point once you've deselected the text box:
- Web: Click on the text box and start typing.
- Mobile: Double-tap the text box to reactivate it and start typing.
Within the Draw tool, you can also:
- Clear the image at any time using the Clear button in the toolbar.
Change your brush size by clicking on the Brush button in the toolbar and selecting a new size.
- Change your brush or text color by clicking on the Color button in the toolbar and selecting a new color.
- Move a text box on the web by hovering over the text box until you see a pan icon and then clicking and dragging. On mobile, tap the top of the text box, hold, and drag.
- Resize a text box by clicking on or tapping any of the corners of the text box and then clicking and dragging. Note: This will only change the size of the text box, not the size of the text itself. To change the size of the text, select the text box and then the Text icon in the toolbar, and choose a new size.
- Delete a text box by clicking on or tapping the text box and clicking Delete on your keyboard.
- Download your drawing to your computer or mobile device by clicking on the Download button in the toolbar. All images are saved in png format to preserve image quality. Note: The Draw tool is completely mobile responsive, meaning all captured images will match the dimensions of your screen.
Shows/hides the Label List in the Information Panel. The Label List enables users to quickly navigate to key learning points on the 3D model by providing a complete list of all of the labels in a given chapter. When clicked, each label in the list highlights the matching label in the model, or triggers the actions that were assigned to that label in Studio.
Shows/hides a "Read More" link in a structure's anatomy label, which pops up when the structure is selected. When Read More is clicked, a detailed description of the structure will appear in the information panel. Note: All anatomy descriptions are sourced from Wikipedia. If a Wikipedia article is not available for a given structure, a Read More link will not appear.
Shows/hides the 3D controls toolbar in the lower-right corner of the Viewer. This toolbar includes four buttons—Switch to Pan Mode, Recenter 3D Model, Zoom In, and Zoom Out— that enable users to adjust the position of the model in 3D space.
Enables/disables the Undo/Redo/Reset toolbar, which allows users to undo and redo actions taken in the model, as well as reset the model to its original view. Hidden by default, the Undo/Redo/Reset toolbar will appear at the top of the 3D scene as soon as a model has been modified* so it is immediately obvious that the action can be undone.
*Applicable tools include the Search, Layers, and Explore tools, and any of the advanced actions available for individual anatomical structures.
Shows/hides Help in the Menu. Clicking Help opens a menu containing three options:
- Launch Tutorial: Opens the Getting Started Tutorial, which teaches users how to interact with a model in 3D.
- 3D Navigation Basics: Opens a screen in front of the Viewer that illustrates the primary ways a user can interact with a model ("Navigation Basics"). From here, the user can also access a comprehensive 3D navigation key for all devices and accessories ("All Controls").
- Keyboard Shortcuts: Opens a comprehensive list of keyboard shortcuts that compatible with the Viewer.
Enables/disables the anatomy labels that appear when the user selects structures in a model by clicking or tapping them. The anatomy label identifies the structure by name, whether it's an anatomical structure, a component of a structure, a microscopic unit such as a cell, or an inanimate object such as a device. When this option is disabled, clicking or tapping a structure will only highlight it, and no label will appear.
Enabled (alongside labels applied in Studio)
