Drawing Widget with Annotation Socket Widget Comments 15 comments Sort by Date Votes Mazen AlAli March 25, 2013 14:42 Great stuff! The example here is a diagram which would be used over and over again. i wonder if we could possibly have a dynamic value for the background image for this widget. this way for example you could classify a criteria which picks which background it is. Like when annotating an injury versus property damage. Also, for smaller devices, i wonder if the users can pan through the image on a zoomed level to have more detail. 0 Permalink Antoine Burdett March 25, 2013 21:56 Excellent - been waiting for this a while. It would be great if there was an option for importing a pdf (not just an image) as we often take single page CAD drawings to field in the form of PDF's and use products like Goodreader to annotate. This would replace the need for that. When will this be available? 0 Permalink Tony Ruth March 28, 2013 12:02 Hi Antoine, we don't have a defined release date as of yet.. We wanted to take the opportunity to gather some feedback and make revisions / updates before sending this live. As we gain a better idea of what folks are looking for we can keep everyone posted on a release date. Thanks for the comments gentlemen, much appreciated! 0 Permalink Werner Zuurbier March 29, 2013 10:05 Tony, thanx for this preview. It looks very promising: I have a few wishes left: First i like to have a default image that can be annotated right away (so no selection is neccesary) as an option Second I like to have the option to choose from a library other than the photo roll. A serie of images categorised and available within the app itself (for me it would be medical clipart). So the developer cab control what images to use. I can't control every device photo roll. Third I like to have influence in the annotation option you give users. Some are not relevant in every occassion and are in the way. On the other hand the option of the red dot with the white cross is a good example of annotion with predefined symbols that are familiar in a certain context. I like to add my own symbol set. finally I like to email the resulting form with the annotated image to the people that are surveyed (i.e. patients in my case) direct after completion (pdf format?) 0 Permalink Efanning April 02, 2013 14:59 Great addition, I like the Siri speech to text. Is this available on the text element. I'm still on iPhone 4 so i can't check. 0 Permalink Jim Holland April 04, 2013 10:44 Hi Tony, I was just looking at the preview of your annotation widget and it looks promising. Would we be able to link to a pdf hosted in dropbox, annotate the drawing then save the document with the annotated pdf associated to a particular form? 0 Permalink Heath Corbett May 16, 2013 20:13 Like Antoine mentioned, I agree that it would be great to be able to import a pdf to annotate. Would love to be able to pull a pdf or image from Sharepoint right from the iPad within iForm and annotate on a copy of it (not the original) 0 Permalink Jim Holland September 27, 2013 08:47 Hi Tony, Do we have an update on when we expect this to be included in a release? 0 Permalink Tony Ruth September 27, 2013 13:05 Hi All, we are working hard to release this before the end of the year and will keep everyone updated on a specific time when development is finished. Thanks for everyone's feedback so far! 0 Permalink Simon Wessberg November 14, 2013 17:13 Hi! What is the time schedule on this? Really excited! 0 Permalink Simon Wessberg January 08, 2014 22:04 Hi!
