3.2.5 Side metadata buttons - Settings
When you click on the Settings button in the Slide metadata panel, there are accordion buttons where you can click on and different settings will appear that can be viewed and adjusted.
Note: Toggles are buttons that turn a function/setting on and off. When the toggle button is light gray and to the left, the function is off and when the toggle button is dark gray and to the right, the function is on.
1. Drag and drop
When clicking on the categories button (six squares) on the slide image, a page appears where the screenshots of the marked cells are displayed in their categories. You can drag and drop the screenshot images to other categories to change the marker categories and change:
- Cell size: With this setting, you can change the size of the screenshots
- Zoom level: With this setting you can decide how zoomed you would like to display the marked cells in the screenshot.
2. Map interactively
These settings allow you to change interactive functions of the map.
2.1 Close popup when clicking the map elsewhere: When you click on a spot on the slide image, a popup appears where you can, depending on module classification, change the cell type and remove the marker. When you click elsewhere on the slide image, the popup closes. Click on the toggle button to turn this function on or off.
2.2 Press shift to enable rectangle zooming: Hold in the Shift key while you click and drag on the slide image to make a rectangle. When you release your computer mouse, the map will be zoomed in to the area that you selected. Click on the toggle button to turn this function on or off.
2.3 Make the map draggable: When you click and drag the slide image, you can visualize other parts to navigate through the entire image. Click on the toggle button to turn this function on or off.
2.4 Resize the map on window changes: The map size changes according to the screen size. Click on the toggle button to turn this function on or off.
2.5 Zoom snap: By using the scroll button, you can zoom in and zoom out on the image. When you enter a large number in the zoom snap setting, the image will be zoomed more with every scroll. Entering a small number in the zoom snap setting will only zoom a little bit with every scroll.
2.6 Zoom delta: This setting controls controls how much the map's zoom level will change after zooming. Values between 0 and 1 will show a greater granularity.
3. Map animation
These setting allow you to change zooming animations on the map.
3.1 Zoom animation: When the zoom animation is turned off, the slide image rerenders every time when zooming. When the zoom animation in turned on, it does not rerender with every zoom, which will create a nicer transition while zooming.
3.2 Fade animation: It is possible that, while zooming, tiles of the image need to buffer. When the fade animation is turned on, tiles fade in to appear. When this animation is tuned off, the tiles appear immediately.
3.3 Marker zoom animation: When zooming, while markers are visible on the image, the markers rerender with every zoom when this animation is turned off. When you turn the marker zoom animation on, the markers do not rerender with every zoom, which will create a nicer transition while zooming.
3.4 Zoom animation threshold: The zoom animation only works when the amount of zooming stays lower than the threshold. When a small number is entered here, the zoom animation will only work with slow zooming. With a large threshold, you can zoom quickly and the zoom animation will still be on. However, with a small threshold, the zoom animation would not work in most zooming cases.
4. Map mouse & keyboard control
You can control the map with your mouse and keyboard. Here you can change these settings.
4.1 scroll when zooming: non function
4.2 Mouse wheel debounce time: The time between scrolling with your mouse wheel and the image actually zooming.
4.3 Mouse wheel pixels per zoom level: The number under this setting is the amount of pixels displayed when zooming in once (1 snap on your mouse wheel). A high number of pixels will give you an image of better quality.
4.4 Enable panning using keyboard arrows: You can move around in the slide image by using the arrows on your keyboard. Click on the toggle button to turn this function on or off.
4.5 Number of pixels to move with arrow panning: You can move around in the slide image by using the arrows on your keyboard. When entering a large number under this setting, the image will move a lot with every press on an arrow. When a small number is entered, the image will only move a little.
5. Map panning
You can click and drag on an image to move it, so you can navigate through the entire image. Here you can change the settings regarding panning, the clicking and dragging of an image.
5.1 Enable inertia: When you click and drag and then release your click before you stop dragging, the image keeps moving in the same direction. The quicker you drag, the faster it will keep moving. Click on the toggle button to turn this function on or off.
5.2 Inertia deceleration: When you click and drag and then release your click before you stop dragging, the image keeps moving in the same direction. Eventually the image will stop moving. If you enter a large number in the Inertia deceleration setting, the image will slow down to a stop more quickly. If you have inserted a small number, the image will keep moving for a long time.
5.3 Maximum inertia speed: When you click and drag and then release your click before you stop dragging, the image keeps moving in the same direction. The image will move slowly when you enter a small number in this setting and will move quickly when a large number is entered.
5.4 Ease linearity: When you click and drag and then release your click before you stop dragging, the image keeps moving in the same direction. When the ease linearity setting is put one 1, the image moves "with ease". When a lower number (between 0 and 1) is entered, there is much more drag needed before the image will move. When ease linearity set to 0, it means you have disabled the inertia.
5.5 Max bounds viscosity: This option will control how solid the bounds are when dragging the map around. The default value of 0.0 allows the user to drag outside the bounds at normal speed, higher values will slow down map dragging outside bounds, and 1.0 makes the bounds fully solid, preventing the user from dragging outside the bounds.
6. Map minimap
A minimap is an image in the bottom corner of the entire slide that indicates which part of the slide you are currently viewing.
6.1 Add minimap: You can choose if you want to have a minimap in the bottom corner of your slide image or not by clicking on the toggle button.
6.2 Position: You can place the minimap in the bottom left or bottom right corner.
6.3 Width: You can enter a number for which width you want the minimap to have.
6.4. Height: You can enter a number for which length you want the minimap to have.
7. Map rendering
These settings control the rendering or buffering of the slide image.
7.1 Opacity: Opacity of an image is to what extent it lets light through. When you enter a high number for the opacity, you will have a clear image with vibrant color. A low number for opacity, will give a vague, bleached image.
7.2 Update interval: When navigating though the slide image by clicking and dragging, new tiles will buffer. Entering a low number for the update interval setting, will ensure a quicker buffering of new tiles. With a higher interval, there is more time between new tiles buffering.
7.3 Number of buffered images: When navigating though the slide image by clicking and dragging, new tiles will buffer. When a large number is entered into this setting, more tiles will stay buffered, so it does not need to rebuffer when landing on those same tiles again. Entering a small number in this setting, will require a lot of rebuffering when navigating through the slide image.
8. Cell classification
When adding a marker, a screenshot is taken and the marked cells can be classified by cell type. If you click on the categories button (six squares on the top right of the slides image), you will see a page where the screenshots are placed in their categories. In this settings section, you can select which cell categories you want to display on this page.
