Images

Heretto CCMS enables you to add common format images to your topics. You can also add callouts, or annotations, to your images without leaving the Content Editor.

Annotations

Adding annotations to an image places the image element in an svg-container element, which enables you to add annotations over the image without modifying the image itself. This enables you to reuse the original, non-annotated image elsewhere.

The Annotations interface enables you to:

  • Drag and drop the following elements from the Topic Preview pane on the right into the Image Preview pane on the left.
    • Ordered list items
    • Steps
    Note: The callouts that you annotate images with update automatically as you add, move, or remove the ordered list item elements or step elements.
  • Move and rotate callouts in the Image Preview pane.
  • Edit the DITA content in the Topic Preview pane.
    A user can edit the DITA content directly in the annotation interface.
  • Switch between different images by using the image context menu in the Topic Preview pane.
