You can customize what to show in the canvas tiles from the Options dialog box.

What you should know

The parts of a tile that can be hidden are the timeline, on-tile video controls, tile toolbar, and tile ID. The tile settings are saved as part of your user profile.


  1. From the home page, click Options > Visual.
  2. From the Display timeline drop-down list, select when to show the timeline in tiles, in live, and in playback:
    Only show the timeline when the mouse cursor hovers inside the tile boundaries.
    Always show the timeline.
    Never show the timeline.
  3. To show the on-tile video controls when you hover your mouse cursor inside a tile (play, pause, and so on), select the Display overlay video controls option.
  4. To show an entity’s full path with the entity name in the tile toolbar, select the Display entity names with their full path option.
    An entity’s path is the hierarchy of areas above that entity in the area view. When the path is too long, an “*” is displayed instead.
    " Montreal office/Main entrance", or " */*/Back entrance".
    NOTE: This option also applies to alarms. When this option is selected, the full path of the entity that triggered the alarm is displayed in the Source column in the Monitoring task and Alarm monitoring task.
  5. To show the tile toolbar only when you hover your mouse cursor over a tile, select the Auto-hide tile toolbar option.
    When this option is cleared, the tile toolbar is always displayed.
  6. To show the tile ID number only when you hover your mouse cursor over the tile, select the Auto-hide tile number option.
    When this option is cleared, the tile ID is always displayed.
  7. Click Save.
