Description polyglotinc 2010-08-10 12:34:15 UTC
1. Draw supports hyperlinks to be associated with objects in a drawing.
2. Draw supports export/save-as of drawing to HTML page(s).
3. Draw supports conversion of drawing to GIF,JPG,etc image.

So, why oh why doesn't Draw auto generate the Image Map(s) needed to
actually implement the hyperlinks in a simple export to HTML???

This is a very simple use case and an obvious solution to fix the problem.

Please give a step by step description. I am not sure if I understood the
problem completely. You are aware of the option to use edit/Image Map? Thanks in
Comment 2 polyglotinc 2010-08-10 16:13:20 UTC
The use case is simple:
1. Create a drawing, inserting various text and shape objects as desired
2. Select object and Insert->Hyperlink specifying target URL
   (repeat for various objects as desired)
3. Export drawing to HTML document via File->Export...

The hyperlinks in the drawing should have AUTOMATICALLY been implemented in the
HTML page(s) generated by export.  A typical implementation mechanism would be
Image Maps that reference the GIF/JPG/etc image generated by the export.

The point is that Draw already has all the info it needs to do this
automatically without some agonizing manual setup of ImageMaps (via a wizard
which itself always gives me General Error, General Input/Output Error).
