How do I turn off the view selection buttons that pop up?

Post by Prismshard » Fri Apr 05, 2013 1:02 am

Is there a way to make it so that the view selection buttons do not pop up and get in the way of a map? I checked through the preferences and couldn't seem to find a way to make them go away. They are very obnoxious because we don't really use the views and it makes the bottom section of an RPG map unusable. Is there a way to make them go away and not come back unless called for?

Hmm I seem to recall there being an option for that but I can't find it either.

If there isn't an option to permanently hide it yet, then it definitely has my vote as well. I hate mouseover popups and would personally only use the view feature via a flash extension or hotkeys.

Quote from pg. 33 of the BRPG User Manual:
For those who do not wish to use the Views feature, a "Disable Views Palette"
command is available on the BG button's popup menu (for now, this command
must be selected every session, but eventually, this will probably become a
Preferences setting, instead). Note that even if the Views Palette is disabled,
hotkey navigation for the various Views will still function.
If you don't see this command, look for it in the submenu called "Session-specific settings". That's where it has been moved in recent releases of BRPG.

Pg. 34 describes how to permanently disable the Views palette for a particular Encounter.

A more "permanent" means of disabling the Views palette just debuted in BGE v1.7. This same capability will be in BRPG v1.8d, when it's released.
