One thing I’m looking at is using a trick similar to the one Roy Keung has just taught me which has allowed to me to create a working “Home” button for all my diagrams. That works beautifully.
So I’m thinking about putting an invisible object over the top of each glossary reference and embed a url in that object so that, from the users pov, they click on the glossary term and it calls up a popup window with just that term inside it. Yes, its a pain in the arse, but we desperately need proper links to the glossary and we’re prepared to put in that much effort - but hopefully we’ll only need to do that ONCE per glossary link (but see below)
I’ve noticed that you produce an individual html form for each glossary entry, and I’ve just I’ve just tested the above concept (partially) by embedding the relative link to a specific glossary form in the content folder and that works a treat. My web dev can modify it to a popup.
The question is: where can we find the relevant references?
For example the glossary term I’ve just succeeded in linking to, from my "invisible object) is Glossary_n3cgwAaGAqACRBPl.html
Where, in VP, can I find the “n3cgwAaGAqACRBPl”?
I’ve just confirmed that the references are “stable” so, presumably, they are stored somewhere in the glossary grid but I can’t find them.
The other thing I need is a bit more flexibility on your shape constraints. Ideally, I need to be able to create the invisible object to fit exactly over the glossary term
You can see the problem here:
I’ve deliberately left the outline visible so you can see the problem. The “rounded rectangle” shape cannot be made shorter than you see in the image. Is there another shape (which I can treat the same way) which can be made shorter?
In this particular case, it isn’t a big deal, but in other action boxes I can have up to half a dozen glossary terms and so I would need a much finer discrimination than your rectangle allows. In addition to which I want readers to be able to click anywhere away from the glossary term (but within the action box) to follow the reference link relevant to the box.
