Hi Alex,

I would like to suggest a couple more annotations:
  • 1. Arrow
    2. Callout (textbox with arrow pointing out from it - must be able to pick which corner the arrow comes out of)
Thanks,

Ian

Hi Alex,

Do you have any plans to open this product up to allow users to view and annotate PDF, Word, RTF and other text-based documents? I've just been asked if your control will allow us to do this and can't see anything in the documentation.

Thanks,

Ian

Hi Ian,

What do you mean? Please explain.

We plan to open annotations interface so users will be able to create custom annotation types. Also we plan to save annotations to PDF documents.

Best regards, Alexander

When the Text Annotaion is locked (user cannot delete it, just hide it), it should be possible to move text box arround, but the arrow would all the time point from text box to the position defined, before it was locked.

When the version 3.0 will be available?

Hello Jaka,

I'm not sure that i have understood you. Do you need to move TextBox with TextAnnotation if TextAnnotation is moved. Please explain.

Best regards, Alexander

Some more datails:
We would like to use your product to write a application for Approving cicle of the contect in a document.
A user would be able to put Annotations on page, move them, delete them, but when he click the Button "Approved" or "Request correction" the Annotations are locked to a document. The user cannot delete the Annotations anymore, but he has to be able to hide tham or move them arround, but the arrow or something else would all the time point to the original location on the page (this is a reference point on the page, which was set before the user clicked the Button "Approved" or "Request correction"). This way the user can move annotation arroud the page, but he can still see, to which content on the page the annotation is relate to.

I hope I is undertandable.

Regards
Jaka

Thank you for explanation.

In version 3.0 AnnotationViewer will have 2 modes: Author and View. In Author mode user will be able to work (edit, move, delete, etc) with annotations. In View mode user will not be able to work with annotations, it will see annotations only.

Is it suitable for your needs?

Best regards, Alexander

Thank's for fast reply..
2 modes: Author and View, That's great!

In the view mode we would like to hide and move annotations, but after the move, the view user sholud be able to see where the annotation refers/points to.

When the v. 3.0 will be available?
Regards, Jaka
