When a user selects an Annotation callout, their 3D view shifts to a predefined position. Additionally, a window will be shown that can contain rich text and embedded media.

Annotation view window

Those with view-only access to the asset will see a window with a clean design, containing only the title, rich text/media content, and a close button. Here’s an example of a view-only annotation window with an embedded panoramic viewer:

A viewer can move the window by dragging its title bar and resize it by pulling the handle in the lower left corner.
(Desktop only - Mobile is always full-screen)

Annotation edit window

Those with edit access to the asset will see the following window:

  • Title: Shown beside the callout in the layer list window and in the 3D view when using the "Title" Callout View Style.
  • Description: Using the toolbar buttons above the description field, you can insert rich text and embed media such as photos, videos, or web pages (Learn More). This rich text and media will be  displayed in the Annotation view window when users with view-only access to the asset select this callout.
  • Preview: This button lets an editor see the Annotation view window as it will appear to those with view-only access to the asset. After pressing Preview, editors can also adjust the window's position and size to their liking. The window's position and size will auto-save and be used when someone with view-only access selects the callout. Each callout has its own position and size settings, enabling customization for each. Here are a couple of basic example screenshots:

The dropdown in the window's upper right corner also offers several functions:

  • Remove: Deletes the callout.
  • View Color: Controls the color of the callout in the 3D view and its icon color in the layer list window.
  • Set bookmark: Captures the view's current position as the callout's default. When a user clicks on the callout, the view will shift to this position.
  • Go to bookmark: Immediately shifts the 3D view to the position saved using the Set Bookmark button.
