Probably the most used link option in Maglr. Publications become interactive by linking to other layers/elements or groups.
When you select an object and open the link panel there are a lot of options. You can link to external sites or other pages. To make your publication interactive it’s nice to open parts of the page with a button.
Choose Open Group/Layer. Just click the round circles next to the layers you want to make visible/invisible. In most cases using a group for a popup is the easiest way to interact with multiple elements. It also keeps your popups better organized. If you decide to create a big popup, you can also put a close button in there that closes the popup in exactly the same way. Make it link to the group that it’s in.
Other link targets are Reference, Interface option, Page, External URL, File, Element action. Most of these options don’t need an explanation but here is a short summary.
Group/Layer: Links to targeted layers or groups that can then be made visible or invisible.
Scroll to Element: Scroll the users view down to the targeted elements, like a scroll animation.
Scene: Links to an existing scene, bringing it into view for the user.
Page: Links to another page, you can select the page from a select box.
Social: Allows the linking to a social media page such as Twitter or Facebook.
Element action: Control an element. This way, you can make custom buttons to control a slideshow or video/audio player. To do this, click an element. In the link menu on the right side, you can choose "element". In the select boxes that show up, you can choose the element that you want to control and what the button needs to do. This way you can create custom slideshow buttons or video buttons.
External URL: Link to other sites, just paste the right URL beginning with HTTP://
Reference: Links to the reference tag if you have added one when creating a page.
Interface option: Links to some of the functions outside the magazine but inside the interface surrounding the publication.
