 +====== Slideshow Settings ======
 +
 +Select <​html><​span class='​menuItem'>​Settings…</​span></​html>​ from the <​html><​span class='​menu'>​Slideshow</​span></​html>​ menu to open the Settings sheet. It is divided into four seperate panes: Stage, Info, Options, and Advanced.
 +
 +
 +===== Stage =====
 +
 +This pane contains the visual settings for a slideshow.
 +
 +{{ en:​settings-stage.png }}
 +
 +==== Stage Size ====
 +The stage Size determines the aspect ratio of your slideshow (16:9, 3:2, 4:3 or custom). For best results, choose a stage size that matches the resolution of your intended display device, like a Cinema Display or a Full HD projector. If your slideshow is likely to be presented on a variety of different displays, then select the largest display you are targeting. 4K has the highest resolution and has a 16:9 aspect ratio. If you select "​Custom"​ from the popup menu, you can enter any size you want.
 +
 +<​HTML><​div class='​tip'>​The stage size can be changed for an existing slideshow. Please note that aspect ratio changes can have unexpected results for slides with pan & zoom animation. In this case please inspect all slides to make sure everything still looks as intended.</​div></​HTML>​
 +
 +==== Color ====
 +Choose a background color for your slideshow. The background color is visible during some transitions (e.g. fade), in blank slides, or when layers are not covering the Stage completely.
 +
 +<​HTML><​div class='​note'>​Transparent background colors are currently not supported.</​div></​HTML>​
 +
 +==== Background Image ====
 +A background image is shown below all slide layers. The background image can be freely positioned, zoomed, and rotated, but it cannot be animated. Click on the Choose button to select an image file, then move, zoom and rotate the image in the preview below. Click on the Remove button, to get rid of the background image again.
 +
 +==== Foreground Image ====
 +The foreground image is shown above all slide layers. The foreground image can be freely positioned, zoomed, and rotated, but it cannot be animated. Click on the Choose button to select an image file, then move, zoom and rotate the image in the preview below. Use the opacity slider to make the foreground image partially transparent. Click on the Remove button, to get rid of the foreground image again.
 +
 +<​HTML><​div class='​tip'>​Set a foreground image to display a logo or copyright message on top of
 + your slideshow. That way you can create branding for your work.</​div></​HTML>​
 +
 +<​HTML><​div class='​tip'>​It is recommended to use the PNG file format for foreground images, because it supports transparent areas.</​div></​HTML>​
 +

 +
 +==== Resize Behavior ====
 +This setting determines what happens when the Stage Size is changed and the aspect ratio is changes as a consequence. The choices are:
 +  * Do nothing - Keep everything as it is. This is usually not a good choice.
 +  * Crop content - Parts of the layer may be cropped if they do not fit onto the new Stage.
