Bookmark property "Selected Visuals" vs "All Visuals"

"You can now change the bookmark through the bookmark’s menu to Selected visuals instead of All visuals, and it will only apply the bookmark to those visuals you selected." What does the latter mean? I cannot produce a use case.

Re: Bookmark property "Selected Visuals" vs "All Visuals"

Hi @FrankT (and @RolandsP),

Now it works on my side too, but I think that more explanation is indeed needed how to configure these bookmarks. Note the following:

  • Make sure you do not have a bookmark selected when creating a new one. Otherwise it will overwrite this bookmark with the new selected visuals. You can only deselect the bookmark by making an image visible/hidden.
  • After creating the bookmark with selected visuals, you cannot see which visuals are related to this bookmark. They are no longer marked in gray. 
  • In case of multiple toggle buttons you have at least four times a visual called 'image'. By switching on the Title, give it a suitable name and switch off the title, you can distinguish them (thanks @FrankT for this tip). 

 

You can see the configuration of the bookmarks on our blog and YouTube:

Re: Bookmark property "Selected Visuals" vs "All Visuals"

I recommend watching this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZPU8B-1BxjI starting 10:15.

 

It is well explained there with a clear use case.

Thanks, of course I know this video.

Amanda has shown how to select some visuals, but (unfortunately or deliberately) not how to set up the bookmarks.

It's easy to produce a toggle, but for the time being I could not produce two toggles working independently.

For me "Selected Visuals" does not work and for the time being I don't know anybody who got this working.

What about you?

@FrankT

Same problem here. I try to select the visuals I want for the specific bookmark, but once I apply it, it effects all the bookmarks in the page. Every bookmark has now the same selected visuals.

 

As you said before, Amanda is not showing how you get the right selected visuals for each bookmark. It is also not described well in the feature update text. 

 

Can someone help us?!

@RicardoS

 

thanks a lot, only after watching your video it was clear to me what to do, i.e. selecting both, visible and invisible related items.

 

BTW, you can name any visual/image/form by giving it a title and switching the title off afterwards. It will stay named in the selection pane.

 

Kind regards

Oh wow, that trick of titling elements then switching off afterwards is exactly what the doctor ordered, I was driving myself nuts with long lists of same-named items. Great idea!!

Re: Bookmark property "Selected Visuals" vs "All Visuals"

It seems to me that  we can have two bookmarks with differents Show/Hide visuals scheme only in "All Visuals" state but not with "Selected Visuals". Someway you loose the S/H Visuals Scheme when applying selected visuals.
