NEW IN 5.8

Full Screen mode for attachments

Images and PDFs can now be viewed in a full screen mode! No more reading glasses needed (wink) Tapping on it will not only open another detail dialog with the image on it, but the image will be displayed as large as possible on the whole screen. You can find an x on the top right hand corner to close the image again.

Create content for the main area

The main area of Linchpin Touch is composed of four quadrants. The content for each of these quadrants corresponds to the content of a Confluence page. These four Confluence pages can be in a specifically designed "touch space", but they do not have to be. What's important is that the touch user must have permission to read this page.

Your first step is to create these four pages containing content you want to shown in your Linchpin Touch main area.

Recommended content options for the quadrants:

After creating your four pages you should go to the "Layout & Content" section of the Administration of Linchpin Touch, which you find in your Confluence Administration.

Simply start typing the title of a page in one of the four input fields. An autocomplete will help you select the right one. Click on the page you want to select or choose it by hitting your enter key.

The title of the page will be used as the headline for the corresponding quadrant. So you should give it a nice title. (wink) Changing the page title later will also change the headline in your Linchpin Touch view.

Basically you can put anything you want into these four pages for the main area. What is shown is somewhat limited by the limited space on the screen for each quadrant. At the moment, scrolling within a quadrant is not possible. That's why you should try to show contents that don't need more room than is available. 

In the example on the left we only have news: four pages, each containing the Cover Stories macro from the Enterprise News Bundle, but configured to show news from different sources. Sidebar and footer haven't been configured yet in this example.

Click on "Show touch view" to see the view for your touch device.

If you are using macros that are not part of the Linchpin Suite for the main area, chances are that it won't work perfectly. In this case, please feel free to drop us a quick note via our support channel so we can look into it. 


Note on Cover Stories: Version 1.4.x of the Enterprise News Bundle contains a bug, which results in Linchpin Touch partly pixelating images. The error does not occur with later versions of the Enterprise News Bundle
