After you have saved a layout in the ScreenPad Layout Library, you can open it and use it any time you like. Objects remain in the positions and sizes in which they were saved in the layout.
You can "playback" a sequence of layouts during recording using ScreenPad Hotkeys, sequencing through layouts to present the information you want, at the right time, and in the right order. Right-click on the layout library to set hotkey properties. You can also change the sequence of layout appearance by simply dragging them to new locations in the Layout Library.
1 If ScreenPad is not open, select menu options View > ScreenPad or click the ScreenPad icon on the toolbar . The ScreenPad appears.
3 Double-click a layout to open it on your desktop. Alternatively, drag-and-drop it anywhere on the desktop. The layout opens, with all objects in proper placement.
Note: You cannot make changes to a layout and save it with the changes. However, you can make changes to a layout and save it as another layout.
4 The appearance and sequence of layouts during recording can be controlled using ScreenPad Hotkeys. This allows you to control how objects (such as titles or callouts) appear during the movie. For more information see ScreenPad Layout Hotkeys.
5 To change the sequence of layout appearance while sequencing through them with the hotkeys, simply drag individual layouts to new locations in the Layout Library. Layout’s position in the library controls the sequence in which they appear.
You can place one or more annotation objects on your desktop, then save their position and size as a Layout. The saved objects and layouts include any annotation text you have added. This is very handy for doing more than one "take" to get a scene right. After saving a layout, you can always call it up again from the ScreenPad Layout Library. And, you can use the ScreenPad hotkeys to "playback" a sequence of layouts during recording.
1 Place ScreenPad annotations where you want them for the scene. See also: Using ScreenPad Annotations.
