Video/Graphic Card Issues with the Scan View Feature in WebShare Cloud

SCENE WebShare Cloud Icon

Quick Steps

Here is all you have to do. Click links for details.

  1. Update your graphics card driver. If you have a Nvidia graphics card, click here. Otherwise, see the vendor's website for instructions
  2. Update your browser.
  3. Change your browser setting to use OpenGL rendering.
  4. Check to see if the Scan View feature displays correctly. If the display issue persists, change the settings in WebShare Cloud

Overview

Display issues with the WebShare Cloud Scan View feature (former Panorama View) may be related to several things: not using the latest computer graphics card/video driver, not using the latest browser version, the OpenFL rendering setting in your browser, or the WebGL acceleration option in WebShare Cloud. The Quick Steps in this article take you through checking and changing each of these until the Scan View feature displays properly.
