How to use a Canvas on the MultiTaction Wall
A canvas is the basis for displaying and organizing content—images, videos, documents, and so on—on your video wall. Each canvas is extremely large and extends well beyond the physical screen area. Use hand and finger gestures to drag and resize the visible portion of the canvas.

Fit to Screen
|This feature chooses a zoom to achieve a ‘best fit’ on the screens available. In technical terms, it expands or shrinks the viewport to include all items on the canvas. Tap the Fit to Screen button to zoom the canvas in or out so that all content is visible on the screen.|
Anchors are fixed areas of the canvas, defined by users. You can define any area on the canvas as an anchor. You can then jump to an individual anchor or launch a presentation, displaying each anchor in sequence.

Workspaces enable you to split the viewport into separate sections so that two or more users can work independently on the screen without interfering with each other’s work.

Anchors are fixed areas of the canvas. You can jump to an individual anchor or you can make a presentation or ‘slideshow’ that glides through a series of anchors in a predefined sequence.
