Cycle between widescreen, portrait and square templates from start screen

For some events, I create both widescreen and portrait layouts, and switch between the two depending on the number of people being photographed. It would be nice to be able to switch between these layouts from the start screen, or perhaps the layout selection screen, so that I don't have to jump into the settings each time. Ideally, I should be able to make this selection from a touchscreen button, or from a keyboard hotkey.

    That is not possible due to the difference in the layouts
    being different Aspect ratio's for the photo boxes of
    Square / Wide / Portrait and they can not be combined together.

    That is why when you create a layout you select the type
    Square / Wide / Portrait (aspect ratio) and they are not
    ALL listed in the same save directory.

    Yes, we know this sounds like a simple task of
    Putting them all together, but that just can not be done.

    It is the same as when you have a Printer set to CUT a 4x6 layout
    into (2) 2x6 strips and also want to be able to NOT cut for a Full
    4X6 layout... you have to Manually change the printer each time.

    Some things are just not possible (at least we have not been able to achieve it YET)

    Hi Joe,

    I think you misunderstood me.. :)

    I do not want to mix different photo aspects on one layout. What I want to be able to do is change from layout #1 (which is widescreen), to layout #2 (which is portrait) without having to go into the settings. Currently, sparkbooth only lets you change between layouts of the same type, when you have the layout selection screen enabled.

    I've attached a screenshot of the button I use to change between the layout configurations (photo_size_option.jpg). I'd basically like to be able to cycle between these 3 options from the start screen (as shown in photo_size_cycle.jpg)

    Sorry, Sparkbooth does not currently allow you to mix different photo sizes
    for guest selection.
