The simplest way to create events is to modify or copy an existing event and use Dropbox to transfer it to the iPad.

 

1) Set up for updating events via Dropbox

 

First sign in to your Dropbox account from Breeze Booth by tapping on "Sign into Dropbox" in the app settings screen:
 

sign_in_to_dropbox

 

This will open the Dropbox app and ask whether to allow Breeze Booth access to the Apps/Breeze Booth folder:

 

dropbox_allow

 

Tap "Allow" to allow Breeze Booth access to the Dropbox folder.

Please note: The official Dropbox app needs to be installed on the iPad. This can be downloaded from the Apple App Store.

 

After signing into Dropbox from Breeze Booth you can sign out of Dropbox from the official Dropbox app to prevent unauthorised users from accessing your Dropbox account.

Copy the sample events to your Dropbox folder by copying the "This PC > Documents > Breeze Booth > events" folder to the "Dropbox > Apps > Breeze Booth" folder. The "Dropbox > Apps > Breeze Booth" folder should look something like this:

 

dropbox

 

Copy the sample events to the iPad tapping on "Events" to open the events screen and then tapping on "Update all events" in the bottom right hand corner. It may take a few minutes to sync all the files the first time you do this.

 

Please see the section on Updating Events for more information on updating events.

 

2) Copy an existing event

 

Load the sample events into the Event Editor by selecting  "Open..." from the File menu and then opening the events.xml file in the "Dropbox > Apps > Breeze Booth > events" folder:

open event

 

The Event Editor will display a list of events:

 

events list

 

Right click on "Demo 1 Props % Filters" and select "Clone event...":

 

clone_event_menu

 

Enter the name of the cloned event, the optional description and the folder where the files should be saved:

 

clone

 

The selected event is cloned by copying all the files into the new folder and the list of events is updated:

 

evnt_list_after_cloning

 

Note that the "Save" button is now enabled. This indicates that the events.xml file, which contains a list of events, has been modified and needs saving to disk. Click on the "Save" button to save the events.xml file.

 

Double click on an event in the list to edit it.
