Configure Plot Parameters

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

This page is about configuring the parameters for the plot, if you want to configure preferences of the software, you should read Configure Software Preferences instead.

You can always bring out the plot configure window by clicking the button on the right-bottom corner:

show_plot_conf_window

The plot configure window can help you to:

Change the plot dimension
Change the background color
Change the default font
Specify background image and its placement
Adjust optional rumple effect
Tweak HTML5 export/simulation parameters

The plot configure window looks like this, and the "General" tab is shown by default:

plot_conf_tab1

Here you can make configuration for the current editing plot.

If you specify a background image, you have the chance to define how to tile it and how to align the background image with the plot background.

The default font will be applied to every text element.  The default value is "<Comply with UI Theme>", which means the default font will be specified by UI theme (for example, the "Hand Drawn" UI theme use "Comic Sans MS" as the default font).  If you choose a specific font here, the default font defined in UI theme will be overridden.

There is an option named "Rumple", which can make your prototype looks more unfinished. You can drag the slider on the right to change the strength of the rumple effect.  Please keep in mind that the rumple effect will only exist in editing mode, exported PDF and images, it will not exist in HTML5 simulation.

Remarks: If you like to change the preferred parameters for newly created plot, you should do it in the settings window.

If you click the "HTML5" tab, you can tweak the parameters for HTML5 export/simulation, and the configuration here will override those in the settings window. By default the "Comply with Software Settings" option is selected and the plot will use the default software settings for HTML5 simulation/export. However, if you want, you can choose "Override Software Settings" option here, and then specify the parameters for HTML5 simulation/export. Thus each plot can have different settings for HTML5 simulation/export.
