    Callouts

    bowen192 Level 1

      The thing I would like to see more than anything is a 'callout' palette on the graphics toolbar.  I think this would be a great feature for Framemaker to shout about in a future release.

       

      The main problem with labelling graphics is that if you do them at source, they cannot be scaled without ruining the look of the callouts.

       

      I would like the ability to create live callouts with the following features:

       

      • Customisable callouts with elbows and end types

       

      • Separate search function within callouts - change to one label changes whole document/book

       

      • Automatic numbering; adding/removing a callout number automatically adds/removes the next number in the sequence

       

      • Callouts/numbers can be cross-referenced thus removing the need to ever change callout references in the main body of text

       

      • Colour complimentary; the ability to create a line that if over-layed on another colour, reverses the colour of the line.  What I mean by this is if you create a black line and overlay it on to a black square, so you can still see the line over the black square as FM currently colours it white until the mouse button is released.  It would be good if the line over-laying the black square stayed white

       

      • A halo around a callout.

       

      I'm sure I'll think of other things to add later, but I was wondering if anyone else had any suggestions, or if it was a problem?
