The Navigation Options Panel provides options pertaining to the navigation section of a lens. Keep in mind that this panel will look very different depending on the lens you have selected. Tool Kit will show options for Arrow Styles and the Navigation Position. Classic will show an exhaustive list of options for the Spine Width, Spine Colors, Spine Titles, Index Type, etc. Titles will show options specific to the titles lens.
Show Slide Controls (Always / On Hover / Never)
This option controls the appearance off the navigation arrows. The "Always" option makes them show up always, whether or not you're hovering over the deck area. If it's set to "On Hover" then the navigation arrows should gently fade on when your mouse enters the deck area. The "Never" option simply hides the navigation arrows.
Keyboard Navigation (On or Off)
SlideDeck enables the left and right keys on your keyboard as previous and next buttons if this is enabled. For iFrame SlideDecks, the frame must have focus before these arrows can function as previous and next commands.
Mouse Wheel Navigation (On or Off)
Similar to the Keyboard Navigation option, the Mouse Wheel Navigation Option will navigate the deck to the previous or next slide when scrolling. Unlike the Keyboard Navigation setting, it only requires that your mouse is over the deck area.
Touch Navigation (On or Off)
This works similarly to the other navigation types, but functions only on touch events. This should be enabled if your deck is not near the top of the page, and you expect high traffic from handheld device users.
The Touch Sensitivity slider adjusts the amount of dragging necessary to invoke a pervious or next navigation action from a touch input. Basically, it allows you to control how sensitive the dragging gesture is for deck navigation. Tighter settings require a longer swipe, where looser settings require less of a deliberate and continuous swipe.
Lenses can add, remove, or augment settings shown above. For more information, see the lenses.
Touch Navigation and or Mouse Wheel Navigation is not recommended for a deck that sits near the top of your page. This is due to a UX concern that revolves around the idea that a user is trying to scroll (for the desktop) or drag (on mobile) to see the rest of your page. Since SlideDeck hijacks the interactions, your user will not be able to effectively navigate the site if she drags or scrolls over the deck itself.
