ProtoSphere Tip of the Week #2: Maximizing the View of the 3D Window

In this week's tip, I want to show you a quick and easy way to maximize your view of the 3D window. I've had trainers tell me they use this technique to get a better view of their class and I personally use it if I'm in a meeting where the conversation is mostly taking place over audio. Note that maximizing your view of the 3D window will temporarily hide both the People lists and Conversation area that are on the right side of the screen.

To maximize your view of the 3D window, simply double-click anywhere on the border that separates the two areas of the screen (see where the arrows are pointing below).

Arrows indicate where to double-click your mouse to expand the 3D window

After clicking, your view of the 3D environment will change from this...

To restore the 3D window, the People lists and Conversation area to their previous configuration, double-click again on the vertical border that is now located on right edge of the screen.

The video below shows this technique in action:

I hope you enjoyed this Tip of the Week. If there's another feature that you'd like covered, please let us know.
