Description rgladwell 2006-06-06 11:01:34 UTC
It would be nice to be able to insert notes on images and other non-text
objects. At the moment, if you select an image or frame the insert note button
is disabled but it would be handy to apply notes to all such objects, and not
just text.

right click - Picture... - Options - Names - Alternative (Text only).

(In reply to Edwin Sharp from comment #2)
> right click - Picture... - Options - Names - Alternative (Text only).

This does not supply anything close to analogous to a comment. I quote from the help for picture options. "Alternative text (floating frames, graphics, and objects only)
Enter the text to display in a web browser when the selected item is unavailable. Alternate text is also used to assist people with disabilities."

It does nothing to mark a picture or other object with explanatory text as a comment would. In my humble opinion this is a valid Request for Enhancement.
Comment 4 Edwin Sharp 2014-02-24 07:10:12 UTC
IMHO adding another text feature to existing Caption, Description and Alternative Name is unnecessary.
Comment 5 Regina Henschel 2014-02-24 14:14:45 UTC
Each image has an associated text. Press key F2 to enter text edit mode. Use the "Text" property from context menu to set the position of the text. I know, this is just another workaround.

I think, that this issue is a valid request.

Confirmed per comment 3, comment 5
Comment 7 Armin Le Grand 2014-02-24 21:47:07 UTC
Each image also has a name, title and description (see context menu), all three are empty by default. I would suggest that these should be used when set, e.g. show as ToolTio when mouse pointer is over the object. What about that...?
It is also possible (as feature) in the future to evtl. add that three fields as editable fields in text edit mode, just above the object on the overlay...

Grepping to keep in sight

Reset the assignee to the default "".
