The properties panel allows you to edit the settings for any item on stage. Page settings are also available in the properties panel when no item is selected.
With no item selected on the Stage, the Properties panel will display the Page Properties. These allow you to set the following:
Name - This name will be displayed in the Pages drop down and any actions on items and the timeline that requires a reference to a page (e.g. 'Go to Page'). More information can be found in the Pages section.
Width - The width of the Stage for this page. Note - changing this setting on a new page to be larger than the original page automatically sets your project up to be an Expand Ad nad the new page as an expand panel.
Height - The height of the Stage for this page. Note - changing this setting on a new page to be larger than the original page automatically sets your project up to be an Expand Ad and the new page as an expand panel
Bg Color - The Background color of the stage and the exported ad.
Border Color - The color of the border around the edge of the ad.
Length - The length of the timeline in seconds for this page.
New page properties
These Properties only appear on a new page and allow you to adjust any expand behaviour, which is determined by whether the new page is larger than the original page.
Fullscreen - This allows you to set whether the expand panel will expand to fullscreen on expand. This will make the panel cover the user’s screen and centre the content that is on stage.
Expand Direction - This allows you to set in which direction the panel will expand in relation to the original page.
Expand Offset X - This determines how far across to the right from the 0 point of the original page the expand panel will appear.
Expand Offset Y - This determines how far down from the 0 point of the original page the expand panel will appear.
With an item on stage selected, the panel will display the properties of that item. You will be able to edit the properties of an item as long as you are on a keyframe for that item in the timeline. See more in the Timeline section of the guide.
If there is another keyframe after the one you are on when changing the properties of an item’s position on stage, it will create an animation between the keyframes.
Name - The name of the component
Instant Ad - If this is ticked, the item on stage will be set to be an instant ads variable and be updatable through the Update Instant Ads panel of the Creative Interface.
X - The X position of the item in relation to the 0 position (left) of the stage
Y - The Y position of the item in relation to the 0 position (top) of the stage
Anchor to Point - If the component is on a page set to fullscreen it can be anchored to a particular point. If this is ticked the X and Y position will be displayed as Offset X and Offset Y.
Point - Define which corner or edge to anchor the component too.

Height - The height of the item
Opacity - The opacity (level of transparency) of the item
