About Widgets

Every item you add to your Overlay is called a Widget. Different widgets can have different purposes, but they all work towards one Goal: Your overlay.

Widgets can be viewed like lego bricks: They are modules to build your overlay with. Each Module follows the same basic rules, but provides different functionality.

Adding a Widget

Widgets can be added by selecting the   Widgets Tab in the Edit-Mode. There you simply choose the widget you want to add and click on it

Removing Widgets

To delete a Widget, activate in in the edit mode (see The Grid). Once it is active, you should be able to see the widget settings in the sidebar on the left side. Scroll to the bottom and hit the "Delete" Button.

If you are in a situation, where you want to remove all your Widgets at once, you can do so using the "reset" function. To access it, switch to the  Layouts Tab in edit mode and click the reset button. It will ask you to confirm your action, as it is destructive.
