Please make sure you've already installed the Softspace Companion App on your phone and Softspace onto your virtual reality device.

We've put a lot of thought into making Softspace's user interface as simple as possible, but no simpler. Some interactions may be different from what you've seen in other virtual reality apps. This is because Softspace's UI prioritizes speed and precision in the most common tasks of a collaborative creative work session.

The user interface will continue evolve and improve as we develop new features and incorporate user feedback. Please don't hesitate to send us your suggestions.

In this tutorial, you'll learn about:

Pairing Your Headset

The first time you run Softspace, you'll be asked to generate a secure, six-digit pairing code on the Companion App and enter it in your virtual reality headset. This pairs your headset to your Softspace account until you decide to unpair it.

To generate a pairing code, go to the Account page in the Companion App, and click on the + sign next to Devices. Your code will be generated and displayed.

Open up Softspace in your headset. You will see a number pad. Input the pairing code from the Companion app by using a controller to visually "touch" the keys and pressing the controller trigger button. Your controller can be at a distance from the keypad.

Moving Yourself Around

The movement system in Softspace allows you to move around your workspace quickly, while preserving precise positioning control.

To move, hold down the grip button (on the handle of the controller) with one hand, and "pull" yourself through space. You can think of this as "scrolling" through three-dimensional space. Let go of the grip while your hand is still in motion to "coast". This way you can cover lots of ground, quickly.
