    other additional features.

     Page: 9 / 17

In order to start managing general cube settings click on the “+” symbol next to the “General Cube Settings” label.

     Figure 13: Managing General Cube Settings

    The following parameters are available inside this screen:

    ; BackGround - background setting should be a HTML color, for example "000000" would be black and "FFFFFF" would be white. ; Rotation Slowness Impact - the rotation slowness impact sets the speed of the cube; the higher the number the slower the cube will rotate;.most typical settings would be from 10-

    25 depending on how fast/slow you would like the cube to rotate

    ; Cube Size - the cube size must be between 0 and 100, 100 being the largest cube size;

    most typical cube sizes would be around 75 to 100

    ; X Offset - the X Offset sets the horizontal location offset of the cube; this setting helps identify where the cube is at within the entire flash object width horizontally

     ; Y Offset - the Y Offset sets the vertical location offset of the cube; this setting helps

    identify where the cube is at within the entire flash object height vertically

     ; Show Progress - the progress percentage is displayed within each cube face if the entire

    cube is not loaded and is in the process of being loaded; the progress bar is most utilized for cubes with multiple images; if the progress percentage is not displayed the cube will

    load faster but will have more of a 'Building' affect as each cube is built and displayed

     ; Start Face - the start face is the cube face you want to initially be displayed; although the

    info cube will not start with one cube directly and start by showing the cube at an angle, this setting can help identify the initial rotation of the cubes

     ; Cube Height / Width - the cube height/width will set the properties for the entire flash

     object height/width

     ; Flash File Location - the flash file location is an advanced feature which should only be

    changed if necessary; typically this setting is never changed and similar to http://www.yoursite.com/desktop modules/flash info cube/datasprings_flashinfocube.swf
