I noticed in the latest version of Muse (2017.1) the Tooltip Composition does not allow you to hide the lightbox parts while editing. The checkbox is greyed out and I cannot uncheck it. This is VERY FRUSTRATING since some interactions I've made reply heavily on this.
I am checking with the team about this, looks strange to please allow me as well.
Please stay tuned for my update.
I'm facing a similar issue, I just updated to 2017.1 and now I can't hide the lightbox parts while editing.
Please refer to screenshot below:
Now show light box parts is disabled for the scattered and stacked composition. It is now available on for the light box only. In above screen shots tool tip is in scattered position, so not able to uncheck the show light box parts.
Thanks so much for the response. It helped me a lot
Is this a bug or is it purposely created like this?
This is intentional as show lightbox part enabling make sense only for lightbox. So once lightbox is selected then only enabling show lightbox part make sense.
Why did this change? It was great to be able to hide the boxes (whether scattered, lightbox, or whatever they were) in order to not cover text during edits. The Tooltip composition is pretty much useless now in version 2017.1 since it's text boxes cover my content and I have to physically move them aside to make any edits. When I have several of these boxes, it is very annoying.
In the previous version of Muse I was able to uncheck the "show the lightbox parts while editing" box and was easily able to edit content behind it. This was enabled for all of the compositions.
One step forward, two steps back.
Hmm ok make sense. Will see how to handle tooltip kind of cases which must be addressed in next release.
Ok, thank you for taking a look at this in an update. I think bringing back the ability to hide all of the composition elements would be a good idea. It was a very valuable feature when making edits to content.
The latest update to Muse is ready for download. This update addresses most of the issues reported since 2017.1. Please confirm these fixes as soon as you have had a chance to test them.
There is one new feature in the latest update, and it is a feature that will help you make a smooth transition to a next update allowing you to go back and use your files in a previous version of Muse in case it becomes necessary.
Automatic creation of a backup file after you convert files to the next version:
When you open an existing Adobe Muse file using the latest version of the application, file conversion takes place. Earlier, after the file conversion, when you saved your file, you were not able to open the file in an older version of Adobe Muse.
Now, when you open and save an existing file in Adobe Muse (2018.0), you see the following warning message:
If you click OK, a backup file is saved in the same location as your original file. You can use this backup file with the older versions of Adobe Muse.
Note: The backup file is created only for those files that are converted after you open the file using the latest version of Adobe Muse.
