    Hi,

    I'm interested to implement some sort of annotation tool using the WPF RadImageEditor as a basis. I'm glad there is already a Text Tool in the demo version. But there are a few things lacking which I would like to implement.

    1) Currently seems that once a text object is created, it cannot be reselected and moved/edited. Is it possible to implement such that a previously created text object can still be selected upon clicking on it?

    2) Are there any existing tool for drawing lines/arrows/borders? If not, do you have some sample code to create such tools? Would be good to have such features in an annotating software.

    3) Does the ImageEditor have a panning feature? I.e. mouse click and hold and drag to pan the image? Any idea how to implement this?

    Thanks for your help.

    Hi Ring,

    RadImageEditor is a raster graphics editor like Paint.Net. Therefore, once a tool is used and committed, the result of the tool is blended with the initial picture and the two can no longer be separated. Selecting text and modifying it would only be possible using a vector graphics editor.

    When it comes to inserting borders, this can be done using the RoundCorners tool if the Radius of the borders is set to 0 and only the border color and thickness are adjusted.

    As for drawing lines and arrows and panning, these features have not been scheduled, but we will consider them for future implementation.

    Hi,

    Thanks for the reply. With regards to the text object, is it possible NOT to blend the text with the picture prematurely, but instead only after the user clicks on a Save button or some other control? For example in PAINT.NET, I can create layers, each one with a text object and I can at least manipulate the text position. Is it possible to do this with the RadImageEditor?

    In addition, if I intend to create my own line/arrow tool, could you give me some pointers on how to go about it?

    Thanks.

    Hi Ring Lee,
    Unfortunately layers are not supported in RadImageEditor. You can create custom tools as in this demo.

    Kind regards,

    Hi there,

    I am using the Rad Image Editor for Windows Phone 7 and 8.

    My question is whether fonts are extensible and if so, where can I find any samples or documentation for including fonts embedded in my project or any other way of adding more fonts.

    Thanks in advance!

    Hello David,

    This is the forum of RadImageEditor for WPF and I see that you have opened another topic for RadImageEditor in the Windows Phone forum, so you could expect an answer there.
