The Annotate buttons affect the title bars of images (the names of the
images), and the optional text displayed in small type at the upper left
of an image.
"Top Image" and "Images" refer to collumns
in the button window.
Top Image annotation functions
- Add Note Type in or edit the annotation. TIFF files can have
annotation changed via the finder - see below.
- Hide Note Makes the note (annotation) invisible, but keeps them
intact, unlike Clear Notes, which erases them. [This is done by
adding a slash, '/ ', at the beginning of the annotation, which can also
be done by hand with the Add Note command.]
- Show Note. Shows hidden note (makes annotation visibile again).
[This is done by removing the slash at the beginning of the annotation.
This can also be done with the Add Note command.]
- Change Title Changes the image name
- what appears in the title bar of the window. Duplicate image names
are allowed (but use caution when saving them, as the file name is the
same as the image name, or window title.) Characters such as spaces are
allowed. The title can be long - if the image is to be saved as a file,
shorten the title using this button. Also, to avoid trouble with computer
file systems, avoid characters such as colons (Mac), semi-colons (Lisp),
spaces (IBM), dashes, slashes (Unix, IBM).
Images annotation functions (The same operation
done on all selected image windows).
- Titles -> Notes This is handy
for making the image names visible on small windows, where there is not
enough room in the title bar.
- Clear Notes Removes annotations.
- Hide Notes (same as above).
- Show Notes (same as above).
Notes are shown in small blue type on top of an image as shown below.
The notes are saved (with TIFF
format saves) in the resource fork of the file and appear in the comments
box as shown below. The notes can be edited in the Finder by changing the
comments box, and they can be edited in MacLispix using the Add Note
