Use different layout formats at the same time

Why can not widescreen, square and 4: 3 layouts be offered in the layout selection at the same time? Is that a mistake or technically difficult?

    Each different layout style (Square-Wide-Portrait-4:3)
    is in it's own separate directory and they can not be
    offered as selectable layouts during the same event.

    If you wanted to create layouts that Appear to be
    the different styles... you could use the Wide layout style
    and create screen Overlays that cover....

    I will create a Wide layout in each of these styles
    and (try) to explain how it CAN be done...
    ....give me a few minutes to PLAY with this one
    will reply soon

    It is possible but just not easy to do right now. Possibly in the future.

    I am back with HOW TO DO IT...
    it took me a loooong time to work it out so that
    I could create the video where you can see
    an easier way to have different style photo boxes
    placed in a single layout.

    Be aware, it can be done but is NOT an easy process.
    I have a video covering how to do this...

    Ignore the countdown echo... audio was being captured
    from an external mic along with the internal sound causing an echo...

    And YES you can have the photo boxes on any angle...

    If you would like to have the RED boxes or the
    Screen Overlay images, let me know and
    I will attach them here for everyone to download.

    Let me know if you have any questions...

    This weekend I have a photobooth with three different layouts (4:3 - 1:1 - 3:2) in operation. It is the photobooth that often stops responding.

    What I noticed: For the buttons in 1: 1 format is not enough space and the label overlaps. I miss the idea of how to do it better without changing the size and wording of the label.

    Currently the only way to handle that is to decrease the size of the font
