Notice that the last 4 items have "(online)" as a suffix. This means that their content resides online and requires an Internet connection to access them. If you select one of them and then click the "Continue" button (or just double-click on one), then you will see the following window (the content will vary depending on which item you clicked on).

Importing A Prop

 

To import a prop, click the check box next to one or more props that you want to bring into your preview. Then click the "Import Checked Items" button.

You can filter the list by entering text into the box labeled "Filter". The list will change with each character you type. To see all items, remove all text from the filter box.

 

Find Out More About The Prop

 

Depending on which online source you are viewing the description column might be displayed as a link. If it is, then you can click on the link and the product page for that item will open in your web browser.

 

Where To Buy Lights For The Prop

 

Depending on which online source you are viewing the lights column might be displayed as a link. If it is, then you can click on the link and the page for purchasing lights and controllers in the Light-O-Rama Store will open in your web browser.

 

Refresh The List

 

In rare cases, the list of props may not download correctly -- perhaps there was a problem with your internet connection. In such cases, you can click the "Refresh" button and an attempt to download the prop information will be made again.
