All you need to do is to add dimensions to your artwork, both Vertical Size and Horizontal Size. That ensures that the View in Room feature displays on your live website.

1. If the depth of your artwork is over 3 inches, the room view will be disabled. 
(this ensures that sculptures will be exempt from room view) 
2. If the depth of your artwork is less than 1 inch, for example 0.75 inch, you need to add the leading zero. If you only add .75, the room view will be disabled.
3. Do NOT use fractions. Use decimals. 1/4" needs to be added as .25, 1/2" needs to be entered as .5, etc.
