When you activate Show Guidance option in the Welcome tab of Preferences, if there is an operator in front of the camera that is not performing any operation, the guidance image can be shown.
For example, you can show messages such as "Please show your palm towards that camera" or "Stand on the mark below and raise your hand towards the camera".
You can modify the display style and the display position on the Guidance by generating SplashGuide.ini file in the same folder as the bmp.
Style = 0 float, Style = 1 fixed
Trans = 0 - 255 value of transparency (255: opaque)
Example: Content of SplashGuide.ini
x = 100
y = 200
Result: Guidance image will be displayed at coordinate (100,200) as a static image. The center position of the guidance image is defined by the x, y values.
Assigning x,y and style can be skipped (omitted).
Default Settings (omitted):
x = horizontal center position
y = vertical center position
style = 0
Coordinates omitted: You can skip assigning coordinates X and Y. When set as the following example, coordinate X = 500 and y= center of Y within the screen will be assigned.
x = 500
style = 0

When the operation is locked, you can only move the virtual cursor because selections such as click actions are disabled.
You can unlock in the following way:
