I'm working on a portfolio website. Thumbnails of projects are placed with in a composition widget. Each thumbnail activates a Lightbox slideshow with additional information. Also, when you roll over or activate the thumbnail, the title of each project appears.
This looks all great in the design mode, but when you go to preview mode (either in Muse or in a Browser), Grey rectangles appear below each thumbnail. I can't figure out where these are coming from. Any ideas. Below are some screenshots of what is going on.
Screen shot from Design mode. No grey area under the thumbnails.
Screen shot from Preview mode. Notice the grey space under the thumbnails.
Any idea, why this is happening and how to remove them? Thanks.
… if you provide the file: A blank .muse file with only one of these thumbnails is enough! This significantly saves download and analysing time.
Did you import the images into Muse of did you use the Place method (CTRL+D)?
The latter is preferred.
Are the images being up sized (even my 1px in either direction)?
Make note of one of the images size, Preview Page in Browser, Rt Click on image in browser and choose View Image Info to see if the size is correct. If the image is being resized that info will be shown there.
Another test: Export as HTML (CTRL+E) to a location on your PC file system (drive) then navigate to that location and click on the html file to view in Browser.
Neox99, I fear, that none of your questions leads to a fix of this issue.
I assume, we are dealing with a scaling issue. But why guessing? There may be many reasons. Lets wait, until we can have a look at the .muse file.
I got the images into the document through the options on the Fill panel > Image. The images were sized to 400px x 400px.
I'm on a Mac and don't get those options when right clicking.
I also tried the Export to HTML and that cause a totally different issue. The images in the slideshow are now not connected to the thumbnails. Images appear when you click the thumbnail, but they are not the correct images.
Thank you for the responses.
Forget all these import (??) versus place, export, upsize proposals.
It is, as I said a simple scaling issue with very deep implications.
But one step after the next:
If you respect all these points, your trigger scales exactly, as you expect it to do.
Just have a thorough look at this sample file (a modified version of your file), a d you‘ll see, how it works: https://www.dropbox.com/s/hdwy3xc5uy7wsal/Grey%20Box_Mod.muse?dl=0
There are other viable ways to achieve, what you want – you can delete the image fills and place images into the trigger, for example, but I tried to stay as near as possible to your layout.
Questions? Fell free to ask!
That's twice in one thread you have dissed other's replies.
Maybe we should just stop reading and attempting help here and leave YOU as the only option.
EOC = E nd O f C onversation in case you don't know.
What that means is feel free to come back with any retorts but they will fall on deaf ears.
Where in heaven did I diss you? Yes, I had adifferent opinion, but is this an offence? Never. I only tried to be very clear and unmistakable – hoping, that the initial poster will not be lead in wrong directions, what normally end up in frustration and statements like „Muse is awful, bugs over bugs!“ If you feel, this is „dissing“ please excuse me. It definitely isn’t meant as that.
But coming down to the facts:
But I think, such a discussion leads to nothing. The issue is nailed and – hopefully – solved.
Maybe Neox "talks" about another thread, but I cannot "see" any dissing either?
Like this Neox, the EOC in this thread for you ?
I recommend to leave this to the thread opener, though.
The example file should be checked clearly and if some questions left ask back again geofa77314729.
Be sure that Günter Heißenbüttel answers very patient and knows muse quite good .
Feast of love is quite near, so best Regards,
Thank you for all the help. It was greatly appreciated.
