Adding images to pop-up windows [Suggestion]

Post by MedBooster »

When you double click on various elements such as images, highlights, lines, rectangles, stamps etc. you can create hidden notes in the form of pop-up windows, which is really great, but what I think would make the feature even greater is;

Allow images to be pasted into these pop-up windows as well, so that you only see the image if you hover over the element or open the pop-up window just as with text.

Hello MedBooster,

Thanks for the suggestion - but once again this is limited by the PDF specification to text only.

Some workaround suggestions I found online were to e.g. use buttons - as per the attached sample.
The button has "on mouse enter" and "on mouse leave" actions that show/hide the other field which contains the image.
But that's likely an overkill for most needs, will trigger the "modified" flag for the file and will require an Editor Plus/Pro license to work.

Kind regards,
