BA preview feature ?



Hi All, I am new to the forum, apolgies if I may ask something not releated to the forum or discussed already I am a bit concern about a feature that I cannot see in BA that would allow a user to preview the project, as if the project would run, in my case, on an HD1010 for example. If I understood correctly from other discussions brightsign does not consider this option to be one of the features to have. Well if I may express my point of view it should be one of the top features, products like Spinetix do have it. Now I understand that could be complicated to add, from a commercial point of view is more interesting to sell another box for this, but in the short term as other competitors show up, I don't think is the way to go. For example why not consider: A) A specific box, may be with very basic limited options just to run the preview, for a reasonable price 1 B) Why not consider this feature like an add-on that a user would have to pay a certain amount to activate 1 Talking from an installer/seller point of view it does make a great deal of difference especially where the monitor/s are not close to the PC running BA or even worst are connected remotely to another site I think option A for brightsign could be an easy and quick solution to the problem, still making some profit for it and not to risk to loose market-share. Thank you for your answer Regards, triotech

    Will there be a way to rotate HTML zones too?

    We currently have to use CSS to rotate HTML, and the preview in BA is ignoring the CSS code, so no rotation of HTML in preview.

    I'll add this to the list of existing preview changes needed. BrightAuthor 3.8 should rotate your html if you choose portrait as the project orientation.

    I have read through many of these comments have to agree that a working preview feature is essential. I trying out Bright Author after having used it a couple years ago with discontinued units.  Unfortunately, the images are all static and dissolves and wipes do not resolve in preview, nor does scrolling text.  Time is money as they say, and this is 2016 now, so I'd really hope the thing gets updated (unless, of course, I am doing it wrong).   Thanks for letting me chime in.
