Adding Browser Content to a Workspace

Adding dynamic browser content to your workspace is useful when you want to upload web pages, such as interactive 3D web models or web-hosted videos. If you want to view web content side-by-side, you can add multiple browsers to the same workspace.

Adding live websites to your workspace

  1. Select :add_content: (Add content).

  2. Select :web: (Web).
     

  3. Manually type or paste the address of the website in the text field of the Add Website window.
     
    Add website

  4. Press Enter or Return on your PC or Mac keyboard, respectively, or click the Add website button.
     
    Note: Due to limitations on running a browser within a browser, many external sites are not navigable within the Web, though they are on the Bluescape app for desktops and large displays. Navigable sites have both HTTPS and iFrame enabled. Enter HTTPS versions of URLs because auto-redirects from HTTP might not work.

  5. A still preview of the website displays, highlighted with a blue boundary box and the toolbar open.
     

  6. Select browse to open the website in a new browser tab. Alternatively, you can:

  • Select :more_options: (More), then select Open link in new window or Open in browser.
  • Select :new_tab: (New tab).
  1. To capture an image of the browser window, select :capture: (Capture). The image can be acted upon as any other workspace asset, including annotating.

Note: Subsequent navigation that you do within the browser window does not sync to other members.

Add multiple live objects to your workspace

In the Bluescape Desktop App, users can have unlimited live web objects run simultaneously in the workspace.

Note: Those using the Bluescape for Large Displays app can have up to four live objects run simultaneously for saved workspaces (and one live object in a scratch workspace).

Adding multiple live objects to a workspace:

  1. Using the process above, add as many web objects to your workspace as desired.

  2. Select each web object individually and select Browse to activate the web object.

  3. Interact with the web content in your workspace as you would in any browser window.
     
    To stop a web object, select the object to put it into select mode, and then from the control bar, select the Stop button.
     


     
    Note: Simultaneously running live web objects are limited to the Bluescape Native App and the Bluescape for Large Displays app. This functionality is not present in the Bluescape Web Client.

Editing a URL

Each browser element in the workspace has its own address bar. To navigate to a different site or truncate a long URL, edit the URL in the address bar.

  1. Select the browser window.

  2. Select the URL field in the toolbar.

  1. Edit the URL.

  2. When you are finished, press Enter or Return on your PC or Mac keyboard, respectively.

Deleting a Window

  1. Select the browser window.

  2. Do one of the following:

  • Press the Delete key on your keyboard
  • Select :more_options: (More), then select Delete.

You’re ready to open your workspace and add live websites!
