Identify through SceneLayout
Through SceneLayout, you are able to identify the objects or components to handle.
The following are the key things that you may need to pay attention from SceneLayout.
The absolute layout is displayed in the SceneLayout with a red-colored borderline.
You can solve these issues by grouping/ungrouping and/or adjusting object hierarchies depending on the cases.
However, the absolute layout is normal and required when two or more objects should be overlapping one another. (eg. Popup Window, Tooltip UI, etc)
Misinterpreted Column, Row Layout
Sometimes, the objects or components’ layout is misinterpreted as a column or row, when it should be otherwise.
In this case, it is recommended to follow the steps listed below:
- Select the respective group of objects/components.
- Go to Layout>Layout Type.
- Select the property type.
Column property is displayed with bold blue lines on the top and bottom of the column group,
whereas row property is displayed with bold orange lines on the sides of the row group.
If the order of column and row layout does not match that in the original design, use the grouping/ungrouping feature and adjust the object hierarchy order. The object sin the higher hierarchy order covers the view of the objects in the lower hierarchy order.
Identify through Preview
Also, you can identify the parts to be edited through Preview.
The common issues that you will face include the following:
Size and Layout Issue
If the object or component position seems odd and does not match the one in the original design, check out the size and layout menu on the top ribbon menu.
FUNCTION12 does not assign button or field properties on the UI component automatically.
If your UI design consists of buttons or fields, apply interactive settings that is shown on the top ribbon menu.
