Toolbar Icons

We’ve changed how to switch between modes in Ohyay Studio. You’ll now see these icons in the top toolbar:

The first icon toggles the ability to select/move/resize elements in the room:

The next three toggle the Rooms List, Notes and Controls, and Editor tool panels, respectively:

The last three are convenient ‘shortcuts’ to different configurations of the first set of icons. They are for Creator Mode, Director Mode, and Viewer Mode, respectively:


There are three different modes in ohyay: Viewer Mode, Creator Mode, and Director Mode.

Viewer Mode

Viewer Mode is what your guests will see when they enter your space. To test out Viewer Mode, click on the play icon on the top right of your screen.

Creator Mode

If you have Admin Access to a space, click on the pen icon in the top right of your screen to get into Creator Mode. In Creator Mode, you can edit the backend of your space.

Director Mode

Director Mode is a hybrid between Creator and Viewer Modes, allowing you to access high-level controls. It's also helpful for testing out elements such as buttons and chat boxes.

If someone has "Director-only" access, they'll help you direct the event but won't be able to edit your space.

To give someone "Director-only" access:

  1. Click on the pen icon next to "Director-only Admins."
  2. Add their email address.
  3. Click "Save."
