How to work with Screenshots on Applanga
This article will show users how to work with screenshots in Applanga. Users will be able to access uploaded screenshots, navigate through screens and tagged strings, find specific screens as well as reorganize screens. To learn how to upload new or edit existing screenshots manually see the Uploading & Editing Screenshots documentation
There are 2 different modes to access screenshots uploaded to Applanga: All Strings and Per Screen. The user can switch between those modes at any time using the toggle in the sidebar which is visible when the in-context view is opened.
The All Strings mode makes it easy to access any screenshots associated with a particular string at any point in the workflow. It’s ideal for accessing screenshots for a specific subset of your strings e.g. when a filter or search is applied.
With this mode, screenshots can be accessed at any point while working on the content in the editor. While the Per Screen mode will filter the list to only show those strings associated with a given Screen, in the All Strings mode whichever filter, search, or scroll position is currently applied will remain as is.
This mode is active by default if a screenshot is accessed through the screenshot preview thumbnails in the editor next to the string.
If there is more than one screenshots associated with a string, this will be represented by a stack of thumbnails. Instead of opening the screenshot in the in-context view directly, clicking on stacked thumbnails will open the Screens Tab view first. This view shows all available screenshots associated with a string. From this view, an individual screen can be selected to display in the in-context view as usual.
This way of accessing and navigating between Screens is best used for a holistic linguistic review process. The Screens can be ordered in the same sequence they appear in the app itself, thereby allowing reviewers to mimic the user journey through the app.
If the in-context view is opened and this mode is selected, the list of strings visible in the editor on the right, next to the screen, will be filtered to only show those strings associated with the selected Screen. The “Previous” and “Next” buttons found in the footer of the in-context view are only visible in Per Screen mode.
This mode is active by default if a screenshot is accessed through the Screens list or by clicking on a Tag in the editor.
The Screens list also corresponds to any filter applied to the overall Strings list e.g. if a user filters for Needs Review, only the Screens with strings in the Needs Review state will display in the list and in the Prev and Next navigation. The filtered Screens lists is especially helpful in a scenario with multiple rounds of screenshot review. It ensures that reviewers are pointed direclty to just a specific subset of Screens.
