More Annotation Issues

05 June 2015 21:27 #2684
I have been adding Anchors/Annotations to my project, and would like to have comments and suggestions made on a couple points.

1. “Detect Visibility” does sort of hide the Annotation when something obstructs it, in the foreground, but not completely. I would prefer to be able to make the annotation completely invisible, if possible. How might I do this?
2. Annotations have “Title”, “Category”, and “Description” fields. Very short descriptions (like a date or printed number) will not appear, unless the description has substantially longer character count than the title. The description field will just appear blank, in these cases. For example, and annotation with a title of “XX” and a description of “XXXX” will display the title but the description field will appear blank. Am I doing something wrong?

Hi Chris,

This is the behavior we programmed for the default annotations. You may still program your own design and behavior for the annotations. See our code snippets for a hint. Although a much simpler way might be the modifying of the web player's HTML/CSS.

[EDIT] Oopse sorry I was wrong - annotations are not really a part of the web player.

Very short descriptions (like a date or printed number) will not appear, unless the description has substantially longer character count than the title.

I recall there was such bug with annotations but we fixed it for the current release (15.05).
Here is my setup:

I just created a new .json file, from a fresh Blender scene, and the 15.5 developer plugin.
The annotations with the short description field will still not display.

Could you please provide your blend file? What is your browser?

This zipped package exhibits the annotation problem I am experiencing. The short description field does not display.
I am using Firefox version 35 with Windows 7. I have also reinstalled Blender 2.74 and B4W 15.05.

Hi Chris,

It appears you are still using version 15.03 of the engine in your app. Could you please update b4w.min.js and see what happens?

Sorry!

It is embarrassing to get caught on such a dumb mistake. My main project started a few versions ago, and although I kept updating the Blender addon, I forgot to use the latest version of b4w.full.min.js . I apologize for troubling you with my error.

Yeah, we should definitely do something to prevent such hassle.
