Navigation, Colouring, Renaming, Moving / Reorganising, Adding and Deleting the Categories & Stickers

As StickerCam has evolved, so too has the Sticker Category system and we've added a lot more features and options for you so that you can manage your Stickers Categories, rename, sort and customize them too!

Categories

Scrolling through the Category Tabs
There are a few options available for navigating your way through the category tabs.

 

click on a tab and hold then drag your mouse left or right to scroll through the Categories tabs...

or

click and release (or click and hold) the arrows to the left and right of the Categories to scroll through the tabs...

or

right click the left and right arrows to quick jump to the first (left arrow) or last (right arrow) tab

or

click and hold the arrow then slow drag your mouse away from the main StickerCam window, doing so gives you

keyboard shortcut: tapping your Spacebar will scroll through the sticker tabs bringing each to focus, Ctrl+Spacebar scrolls backwards through the Category tabs bringing each into focus.

Changing Category Tab Colour
There are two main ways to change your Category tab Colour.

The first is to select the tab you wish to customize
right click on the current colour strip at the top of the tab
the Colour options appears, select the a new colour for your tab
click Ok

The second:
as above, select the tab you wish to customize
right click on the current category name
from the menu that appears, select Change Tab Colour
the Colour options selection window will show up (as pictured above)

click Ok

 

Change the Category Tab Icon
select the Category tab you wish to change the icon on
right click on the current category title
from the menu that appears, select Change Tab Icon
the Change Tab Icon options selection window will appear

select from:
No Icon - in which case your category tab will just have a text heading
User Folders Icon - this is the default icon for the category
Select From Library - StickerCam comes with a library of Icons for you to select from so feel free to personalise your tabs with any of the icons included.
Once you have your selection
click Ok

Renaming the Categories
NOTE: Prior to Renaming your Categories, we strongly recommend that you complete and Save to AVI all previously recorded webcam sessions that use or contain stickers. Once your category has been renamed, the stickers contained within that category will only be available for future recordings. Example: You wish to rename the category title People to PPL, stickers from the People category will no longer be availble in any previous web cam recordings (yet to be saved as AVI files) once the People category has been renamed.

select the Category tab you wish to change the Title / Heading for
right click on the current category title
from the menu that appears, select Rename Tab
the Enter New Name... options window will appear
enter the new text (in the example we have renamed Games to Sport)
click OK

 

Moving / Reorganising the Category Tabs
Swapping Tabs
select (click once) on one of the tabs you wish to use in the Swap, in the example below the selected tab is Nature
now right click the other tab you wish to Swap with, in the example below we are using the Halloween tab
