Adding 360 Markups
You can add 360 Markups in any 360° photo in your HoloBuilder project. To do so, open a sheet, select a location with a 360° photo and open it.
On devices with a small screen (such as an iPhone) you then have to click 'Open' in the lower left corner.
On devices with larger screens (such as tablets) you will have to click on three dots that open up after tapping on a hotspot to open the context menu and then tap on 'Open.'
Once the photo is opened, click on the small pen icon in the right-hand sidebar as pictured below. A dialog will open where you have to add the Markup title. You can also add additional information in the larger text field.
Once the 360 Markup has been created, you can drag and drop it to the desired location simply by touching the screen.
Please note that only one type of 360 Markup is supported at the moment. To make more advanced edits, please use 360 Markups in the Web Editor.
Edit or delete a 360 Markup
To edit or delete a 360 Markup simply tap on the 360 Markup. A menu will then open at the bottom of the screen where you can either delete the 360 Markup or select 'Open' to reach the dialog where you can change the 360 Markup title and description.
