How to add widgets and overlay video, images to your Designs

When designing signs with our Designer, you can add widgets like weather, date, time, scrolling text or overlay videos, images to make your Designs more dynamics.

For example, a lobby or building directory signs would need weather, date, time & scrolling text

Format Option right panel will show up.

You can adjust settings for the widget, in case of Weather, you can adjust location, style, font, color, background etc.

In this case, we just want a simple weather widget so we select Plain style, and make the Opacity 0%.

You will have a widget like below.

Weather information on the design will be kept up to date when it's displayed on the screens.
