This article explains how to set the initial pano, the direction it faces on the iGUIDE, and how to enable or disable a pano. The iGUIDE tour can start with any pano, and every pano can be changed to start at any angle. 

In addition, this article explains how to select the initial angle for any and all panos on the iGUIDE. All of these settings can be changed in Stitch and on the iGUIDE Portal; this article focuses on the iGUIDE Portal.

Setting the Initial Pano and Pano Angle

  1. Once chosen, click on Set Initial Angle (1)

  2. Click on Actions (2) then Set Initial Pano (3) 

    Note: If you are setting an Initial angle for all panos, do not select this option unless you wish for the iGUIDE to begin with the selected pano.

  3. Click on the blue Save button (4) to save the panorama.

  4. When you click Save, the 3D Tour will flick back to the Starting pano you have set. You may then go back and click on the pano to confirm your initial angle was saved.

You can also set the initial pano angle in Stitch by using the Set initial pano angle button. A blue box will appear on the pano preview indicating the first pano angle. The box will be orange if indicating the initial angle for the initial pano of the iGUIDE.

Enabling/Disabling a Pano

The second way a pano can be activated or deactivated is to do it later on in the iGUIDE Portal. This is when the iGUIDE has been completed and sent out by the drafting team. To do this follow the steps outlined below:

  1. Log into the iGUIDE Portal.

  2. Find the iGUIDE that needs to have panos disabled.

  3. Click the blue Edit button.
