Webster's defines annotation as a "critical or explanatory notes added to a text." Using Khoros we are not so limited. We can add lines, circles, rectangles, and polygons of all sizes, as well as text. Anything we add to the graph may be moved at any time by clicking on it with the left mouse button and dragging the text/circle/line/rectangle/polygon to another area of the graph. We can manipulate the annotations in other ways as well.
Click on any annotation, and then click on the Copy button, and you will receive (surprise!) a copy of the annotation you chose. Click on the left mouse button and drag it to the destination you had in mind.
This will raise the annotation you clicked on before you clicked on the Raise button. Note that this will not raise the graph above the annotation. It will raise one annotation above another.
Like the Raise button, this will Lower any annotation you choose. It will lower it beneath another annotation, not the graph itself.
xprism2, then I do not recommend trying to write one from scratch. Save one from a session and then view it with an editor. If you then feel confident enough to write one on your own, don't say I didn't warn you. If you have saved annotations, then by all means, bring them back if you think you can use them. Remember again to put in the complete address when entering the file name, and hit enter/return once you have finished typing the address.
and you will see an extensive list of your choices. For this reason,
% xlfonts | more
xprism2allows you to use the `*' wildcard. For instance, you may type in
*adobe*in the Text box, and the wildcards will choose the first adobe font listed to be used in the annotation. You may also try
*helvetica-bold*which will use the first `helvetica bold' type found in the list. Or, of course, you may just leave the font in the fixed position. The Text option is where you type in whatever explanation or commentary you may have.
The Rectangle option varies little from the Circle. You may again choose to fill the rectangle, and the placing may be done with the mouse or the keyboard. If you use the mouse, the first click of the left button will start the rectangle at one of the corners, and the second click will end the rectangle at the diagonal corner. If you use the keyboard, you must enter in the corner (x,y) and the diag (x,y) coordinates.
The Line option differs slightly from the first two; you cannot choose to "fill" the line. The placement options are the same: mouse or keyboard. The left mouse button clicked once starts the line, and clicked a second time ends it. The keyboard option must know the start (x,y) and the end (x,y) coordinates.
The Polygon option is the only one that must be entered with the mouse. You may fill it if you so choose. Each click of the left mouse button (except the one that starts the polygon) will complete one side of the shape. To indicate that you are done making the polygon, double-click with the left button.
