DimDim Alpha Layout

  • Alexandre Freire

    Hello team,

    I did not like the new layout of DimDim ALpha. It´s very strange when you have to open a powerpoint and show to users. If user is with "chat with all" window activated, only a half of slide screen appears and user needs to scroll right to see all the content. The slide is also in a small size.

    When Popout option is selected, the slide remmains in a small size placed in a large blank area that is not used.

    I would say I do prefer the layout we found on last version because presentation (PPT) was showed within a good space, size and layout.

    My regards

      Since your are approaching to Beta release I would like to highlight the need to change the visual layout and design of Dimdim because I did really not like the one we´re using on Alpha version.

      This message is to certify that you guys are keeping it in mind. I am ready to use this fantastic and amazing product but we really need a complete redesign to use something like the layout of the product we used to had before Alpha version.

      My regards

      Thank you for your feedback.
      There is a feature currently which allows you to popout the shared collaboration space to a new full screen window.
      You can achieve this by clicking on the "Popout" link below the "Chat With All" link.

      Please let me know if this solves the problem.
