PhotoStage Pro User’s Manual 1: Setup and Menus

HUD

Chat Interface

Settings

PhotoStage Pro allows you to customize the Users Allowed, Channel, and Chat Channel settings according to your preferences. Each of these settings is stored inside the Control Box as a notecard. Follow these steps in order to view or alter the settings:

  1. Edit the PhotoStage Pro Control Box.
  2. Click the Content tab. You will see several note cards with names beginning with the # sign. These are the settings note cards.
  3. To change a setting, right-click it and select Rename from the menu. Change the text after the equals sign to whatever value you would like, respecting the limits applicable to that particular setting (see below). Press Enter when you are done to save the setting’s new value.
  4. Wait a few seconds for PhotoStage Pro to apply the changed setting.

Important: Do not rename or change in any way the text between the # sign and the equals sign in a setting. Also, don’t leave any blanks to either side of the equals sign. If you do this, the setting will not be interpreted correctly by PhotoStage Pro.

The next sections describe each setting that is supported by the PhotoStage Pro.
