You can click on a graphic in the Preview window and move it around to re-position it. You can also scale the graphic to make it bigger or smaller.
Input behaviors let you choose the way that graphics interact with incoming alerts and notifications and how they are triggered.
For example, the behavior "Twitch: Follower Alert" will trigger the graphic when a new follower alert is received.
Selecting an input behavior will launch the service login window where you can log in to your desired service.
Note: You must sign in to your Twitch account for this function to work.
You can also log in by clicking on the service icons in the scene.
Different graphics will be compatible with different input behaviors. Compatible input behaviors are assigned to a graphic when a graphic is designed.
