With version 5.1.201805, we have implemented comment functionality for pictures.
You can add a comment to a picture using one of the following methods:
- Right-click the figure reference number within a section and select Insert Comment
- Right-click the relevant picture in the right-hand figure column and select Comments
- Use the Search function to locate the specific picture, right-click on it within the search results, and then select Comments
Using the first option will directly open the Add Comment window; using the latter two options will open a different window displaying all of the Pending comments for that specific picture. From here, you can select the Add New Comment button at the lower right corner to insert your comment. You can also use the drop-down menu at the top of the window to filter the list of comments by their status (Pending, Rejected, or Done) or to view all comments that have been added to the picture.
The Add Comment window for pictures has the same features available as the one for sections, such as the option to send a notification email for your new comment and the ability to choose which users will receive it. The available recipients for a picture comment notification email include the original uploader, users with an assigned workflow task on the picture, and any users who have previously contributed to the comment.
Once a picture has at least one comment added to it, a comment icon will appear at the bottom of its thumbnail in the right-hand figure column; you can select this to quickly access its Comments window again. You can also hover your cursor over this icon to see the number of comments that have been added to the picture and whether their status is Pending, Rejected, or Done.
The Comment Report now has a Type column that identifies whether a comment is for a section or a picture, you can also select this column to organize the comments into two separate groups. Please note that comments on pictures within linked sections will not be included in the Comment Report.
The Picture Report has a new column that displays a comment icon if a picture has had comments added to it; selecting this icon will open a new window displaying all of the comments for the picture along with a preview image of it next to the details for the picture (such as Picture ID, Title, and Workflow State).
