It would be helpful if the UI experience for Motion books in Bloom Edit matched the end-user experience of using a motion book in Bloom Reader. In particular, motion is triggered only when the user puts his device in landscape, at which point the text disappears. So, I think it would helpful if when I open the motion tool in Bloom Edit, the text for my page gets hidden and the page rotates to landscape thus simulating the Bloom Reader, especially when deciding on the placement of rectangles “1” and “2”.
This should be happening already when you use the button that allows you to ‘preview’ the motion. But it may be helpful to do it during edit as well, though that means you’d have to turn off the motion tool to edit the text.
