A great feature to be able to differentiate between items, adding another visual stimulus for users, is to give items different shapes. This can be performed at the category, view, or item specific level.

There are 4 shapes available:

  • Square (Default)
  • Smooth
  • Rounded
  • Circle

The changes in the item shape will be reflected across the following view types:

  • Layer
  • Grid
  • Timeline
  • Compare
  • List
  • Map

Category Level

At a category level, this will provide items that are a part of that category will conform to that shape.

Changing Item Shapes

To change an items shape, access the Categories Tab in the Story Setup as highlighted below:

View Level

Note: This feature is available in SharpCloud v9.7.0421 and later.

Configuring item shapes can be performed on a view-by-view basis, providing a uniform approach to that individual view.

This setting can be configured in the View Setup under the Item Appearance tab as shown above.

Item Level

Note: This feature is available in SharpCloud v9.7.0421 and later.

The most unique level shape can be configured on is on an item-by-item basis. This requires a setting to be configured in the Edit Panel and also the View Setup.

Once a shape is selected for the individual item, the View Setup Shape setting needs to be configured to display Item Shape, otherwise the chosen shape will not be displayed on the individual item.
