Pinning

Video Embed

You can upload a video from YouTube or Vimeo by copying the embed code and pasting that directly into MUSE. Don't make a text box or anything, it pastes into video form by itself.

 

If you want the video resized, right click the video box you just pasted and select 'Edit HTML'. If that doesn't work, paste the embed code into text edit and change the height/width that way, and re-paste it back into MUSE.

 

For a quick, no hassle solution simply go to

1. WIDGETS LIBRARY > SOCIAL

 

2. Drag the desired media onto the page

 

3. Click on the blue arrow in the upper right corner of the object

 

4: In the 'Video ID' text box copy and paste the video code from the

     URL in Vimeo or YouTube (shown below)

Full-Width Images

If you want a picture to fill the browser or stretch all the way across it, draw an empty rectangle that's about 250px high and the width of the page.

 

Go up to the orange Fill, with the rectangle still selected, and click it. You will see an add image option. Select the image you want, and change the settings below it (do you want the image to fill the box? Be tiled? Be pinned in the center? etc).

 

If you want the browser fill to be a different color, look at the top of your window and change the "Browser Fill", you can also add an image.
