12016-10-09T12:31:41-07:00Media Layout2plain2016-10-15T18:53:55-07:00The Media layout embeds a force-directed visualization at the top of the page that shows the media it references or annotates. The rest of the page follows the Basic layout, with text and media interspersed.
The media visualization displays all media in the book in a force-directed graph, along with links to the content that annotates and references them. Clicking a content element selects it, highlighting its relationships and allowing multiple sets of connections to be viewed simultaneously. You can scroll or pinch to zoom the view, or click and hold to drag its contents. Clicking an item's "View" button opens its associated content (page or media file).
