As long as you don’t chose a background landscape, there will be a grid on the floor. This is useful for aligning objects in CoSpaces.
If you work with numbers and proportions, you will find the scale controls in the object menu helpful. They come with a number that shows if the object has its default size (=1), double its size (=2) or is only half the size (=0.5). With the flexible objects, you have additional size controls for each dimension – such as, length, width and height. Like this you can, for example, create a roughly accurate bar graph with the flexible cuboid.
There are four different ways to add text to your infographics: You can put text markers onto the floor, set up information panels, assign a speech bubble to an object or give it a name. With markers and panels, you have the possibility to customize their size and color. Also, they will always keep their position no matter from which angle you look at them. Speech bubbles and name tags cannot be customized, but they will adapt their position and size so that they’re always visible.
It’s different if you design an infographic to be viewed from the outside on a normal screen or in virtual reality. When designing specifically for virtual reality, make sure to have objects face the middle of the stage rather than one direction. Also, avoid hiding important information behind objects that might block the side. Better yet, check the VR version regularly while building.
