I know I should be able to figure this out, but seem to be hitting a wall. Some of my tours have the on "how to" tour instructions pop up automatically, and some you have to click on the questions mark in the upper right. I would like the navigation instructions to appear automatically. How do I set that up?

1. Get WP3D Models
2. Check the box to always display on-screen instructions
3. Relax. That was easy!

Dan

P.S. Or, add this jibberish to you Matterport links

Thanks Dan! I'm currently working on a Koaware site for a test run and was hoping to find a way to enable/disable the instructions in the Matterport workshop. Sounds like that functionality doesn't exist, am I correct?

I'm curious as to pro's and con's of Koaware vs. WP3D. I figured I'd try both to get a feel for each of them, but would love the thoughts of those more experienced than me.

Somehow I always end up asking multiple questions and deviating even further from the original thread - my apologies, and thanks again to everyone for the help and patience.

Matterport does not offer a 'check the box' in Workshop for always displaying Help.

Instead, according to Matterport Support, here's how to always force help:

---

To ALWAYS show help, add the &help=1 parameter following the model string.

Example

http://my.matterport.com/show/?m=xxxxxxxxxx&help=1

---

Clear as mud?

---

About a comparison of Koaware vs WP3D Models, please start a new thread for that topic and please include why you are asking and/or what you are trying to accomplish to MPeeps can explain when/why they use one or the other.

Thanks,

Dan
