Re: IOS Card Transparency Bug Colin_Fleming - Adobe Experience Manager Mobile
Hey Steve;Bob and I took a look at this, tried to replicate it, but didn't observe what we understand you're seeing.On an iPhone, an iPad, and Android tablet -- all show similar interactions of transparency. The notable differences have more to do with brightness of the device.Something we're not completely clear on is where you expect to see card transparency.Certain properties of a card can be transparent: card background color, image tint, and text background color support this.Text is opaque...

Re: From tablet only to phone also - workflow Colin_Fleming - Adobe Experience Manager Mobile
Read Bob's message again, carefully.If you intend to have different articles and organization for phone and tablet, you'd want two top-levels.If you're building different phone and tablet, pixel-perfect content, you'd want two top-levels.If you want the same content and organization on both phone and tablet, one top-level will make things easier.If your content is HTML-based with good CSS, it can adapt to both phone and tablet, and one top-level is great.If your content is pixel-perfect and you ...

Re: Tablet layout on Android phone (AEM) Colin_Fleming - Adobe Experience Manager Mobile
Hey Taina;I have engineering looking into this. They're trying to find an S5 to test with, we tried a S6 and it received the phone rendition. I'll let you know what I find out.BTW, your technique of adding a collection and using different card designs calling different metadata is quite clever. Nice technique.

Re: Adobe InDesign CC DPS testing on MAC Colin_Fleming - Adobe Experience Manager Mobile
All suggestions above are good, although some of the AirPlay-like will require being on a common wifi network AND subnet. And that can be challenging sometimes.OTOH, for the big screen you may have a switch for inputs, then you could use an adapter that connects the iOS device to the projection system. If you do that, I'd tape the adapter to the device--wiggling wires can be an issue.

Taina -- thanks for splitting this question off.I did a really quick test with my iPhone 5S and a Motorola that has dimensions that match the Galaxy S5 -- they both see my phone layout rendition -- I think that's what you expect.So you have two apps in one project -- cool, they both see the same content.-- The card images will be the same since all content is the same.-- May I assume you have one top-level?-- -- If you have two-top level and different phone and tablet collection structures this ...

Re: Article page thumbnail view Colin_Fleming - Adobe Experience Manager Mobile
Hey Bill;I think you're describing some of the navigation features we had in the original DPS. The scrolling navigation through articles in a folio isn't part of the newer product. I suspect it comes down to a folio had information about all the articles that were in it, whereas a collection is a more flexible container and doesn't carry the information that would support scrolling with thumbnails of each article.

Re: Wrong Layout Template on Android Smartphone Colin_Fleming - Adobe Experience Manager Mobile
Taina;If I understand your situation correctly: you see the phone rendition on iPhone and tablet rendition on the Samsung -- but they look different... I think your issue is different that DPS Admin's in this topic. If this is the case, would you start a new forum thread for your topic? This would help engineering. Thanks.

Re: Wrong Layout Template on Android Smartphone Colin_Fleming - Adobe Experience Manager Mobile
Some devices and OSs do some interesting pixel-doubling, and I have a hard time articulating exactly what goes on. OTOH, looks like you have a value for the Layout Templates system that let's you emulate what you're seeing on the device.

Re: Best practices for testing Colin_Fleming - Adobe Experience Manager Mobile
Device choice should be influenced by your expected audience (or maybe you have data on your audience.)Is an iPad audience a primary user set? Or is it phone based?Where are most of your users based? The North American market is different than Europe or Asia.Is your app aimed more at on-the-go consumption (phone) or not-as-mobile (tablet)?Old device may use old OSs, so what should you support?

Re: Wrong Layout Template on Android Smartphone Colin_Fleming - Adobe Experience Manager Mobile
I asked engineering about phone v tablet for layouts. Apparently AEMM looks at the width to determine whether a device is a phone or tablet. If the device is 600 pixels or wider, it's going to use the tablet layout. Less than 600 will use the phone layout. -- A device that's 720 is going to use the tablet layout. And that's what I see in the screenshot.But the card looks odd to me, this is based solely on my assumptions and a couple of screenshots. Since we know your device is going to call the ...

Re: Is it possible to link to a collection from a banner? Colin_Fleming - Adobe Experience Manager Mobile
Consideration = still looking at it, no timeline I can share.PMs make the judgement of how difficult something is and how many resources are needed to implement. Sometimes PMs will tip their cards.The workaround I shared with KDR was a way to maybe address her need. But it's not a real solution. Yes, I have to be cagey on this topic. Hopefully my sharing a little information is better than no response.

Re: Full Screen Streaming from YouTube or Vimeo Colin_Fleming - Adobe Experience Manager Mobile
There seem to be at least four things going on here, so simple answers are going to be difficult.One variable is how you're building your article -- seems like you're using InDesign rather than HTML. Within InDesign there are two ways to approach this: a video overlay or a web overlay -- each has different features.An InDesign video overlay has the most control over playback (full screen option) and you can embed or stream the video resource. This is the option Benoit is covering above. Once you...

Re: Can't edit a layout when connect in a private session Colin_Fleming - Adobe Experience Manager Mobile
Hey Benoit;I've developed a habit of using Chrome when working in the AEMMobile Portal. I started doing this way back in the beta period nearly a year ago when Safari didn't display some things well. I've kept on using Chrome for the portal since then, this includes using incognito browser pages so that I can log into the portal with different accounts/projects at the same time.HTH

Re: Audio not working, iOS Colin_Fleming - Adobe Experience Manager Mobile
One thing to check is whether the mute switch is on.AEMM apps respect the position of this control (it's a soft switch in the bottom controls (swipe up from the bottom of the screen) but iOS apps (browser and music) will play through the speaker regardless of the setting.I've been caught by this, engineering has been caught by this, you might be as well. Easy to fix though.

Re: Layout Templates inconsistent throughout different iPad devices Colin_Fleming - Adobe Experience Manager Mobile
Hey Jenn;Back in mid-March this topic was going on:Cards titles look different when publishedIt seems that iOS apps prefer leading of 1.1 or greater. Leading less than this value don't work as expected.In a related forum thread it was discovered that if you need to include the zero before the decimal place. Enter 0.9; entering only ".9" would become "9" -- but entering "0.9" would work -- but poorly for iOS currently.Adobe PMs are aware of these problems.HTH

Re: Layout Templates inconsistent throughout different iPad devices Colin_Fleming - Adobe Experience Manager Mobile
Based on a recent question: what are the type specs for the metadata used on that card? A previous question came down to a leading value of less than 1.0 on iOS not displaying the same way as on Android. Your settings might be a new data point for how leading values are working on iOS.A long shot, but potentially interesting.HTH

Re: Syntax for email banner Colin_Fleming - Adobe Experience Manager Mobile
I avoid roadmap questions, for a number of reasons... so "no comment" on this. If a PM wants to comment, cool.OTOH, make your case for why an email action for a banner would change your business... PMs appreciate that type of information on feature requests.

Re: dps article converter Colin_Fleming - Adobe Experience Manager Mobile
The PDF converter is a convenient way to port content into AEM Mobile -- but I'm not aware of any plans to add tools to the converter to build custom navigation.You get page based, swipe navigation. That's basically it. I suppose you could work in Acrobat to add buttons that use relative navto syntax, but that feels like a lot of dubious work.Alternately, if you're working with a large document, you might split out chapters or sections and then convert these portions of the larger PDF into artic...

Re: Cards titles look different when published Colin_Fleming - Adobe Experience Manager Mobile
Got it. Sorry I missed that you're mostly focused on the fonts.So what fonts did you load? Type/format.The iOS and Android apps will tend to use the TTF or OTF font resource, Windows will want a WOFF format, and the Layout Templates will also want a WOFF resource.

Re: Cards titles look different when published Colin_Fleming - Adobe Experience Manager Mobile
A quick comparison of the two images and it strikes me that the treatment of the cards and banners is the same. Line ends, crops, grids are the same... What's different is that Layout Templates doesn't show the OS bar at the top and it doesn't "crop" the page to only show the aspect ratio of the iPad... so I have the impression that the preview in Layout Templates is the wrong shape, specifically it's too tall.So the impression from Layout Templates is that I'll see all of the third row of cards...

Re: dps article converter Colin_Fleming - Adobe Experience Manager Mobile
Linking in an AEMM app uses navto -- take a look at Hyperlinks in AEM Mobile for information about the syntax.If your articles are built with InDesign, the links need to use navto.If your articles are HTML, links use navto instead of http.Navto includes support for linking to a page or into the article, it's covered in the Help topic.HTH -- Colin
