Annotation Tag

Basic Annotation Display

Annotation Tag

Active text boxes are displayed with an orange edge and given a corresponding handle.

Foldable text fields can be attached to objects using the Annotation tag. When the view is rotated, these text fields will be arranged automatically so they don’t cover the object to which they’re attached. This is very useful for adding explanatory, object-specific comments to objects in complex projects.

The text fields move with the corresponding object, i.e., if the object is not visible, the text fields will also not be visible. The text fields are a HUD element and can be displayed or hidden accordingly.

Clicking on a url in a text field will open the corresponding website in your web browser (the Annotation tag replaces the previous WWW tag with regard to this function).

Annotation tags can also be set interactively using the Annotation Tool.

Interactive Functions

Note that changing an object’s total number of points will cause the Annotation to jump to a different point, which is a limitation of this function.

Older WWW tags will automatically be converted to Annotation tags when loaded.
