Image Annotations Not Displaying

I am finding that I no longer see image annotations on Instructables. This happens regardless of browser, and is reproducible on two computers (both running Win 7). It does not seem to matter if I am logged in. The annotations are still present if I view my own Instructables in "Edit" mode, but I cannot see them when normally viewing my (or any other) Instructables. Is this a known issue?

annotating photos in instructibles

The weird thing is that I should be ANSWERING this question instead of asking it. In my first Instructible I was able to add notes to the photos that would appear as square outlines until one hovered over the square, then my note would appear.  Just like in the first photo in Step 5 here: https://www.instructables.com/id/Ice-Cube-Clock-3/ Now, doing my second I'ble, I can't manage to get this done.  So I bring up the photo and click on "edit", then on "add a note".  The text box comes up and I can enter text, but if I try to drag it to some location in the photo it won't go to anywhere outside of the upper left quadrant of the photo.  And once I leave the photo the note disappears, even though I clicked "save".  I'm using Firefox browser.   I tried Chrome as an alternate and I couldn't even enter text in the box.  Haalp!

Image notes at bottom of image don't show caption

The final image on https://www.instructables.com/id/Simple-Skull-Display/ has an image note that reaches to the bottom edge of the image, which means the caption (positioned below the mouseover box) falls off the bottom of the image and can't be read.  A little "smartness" in caption placement would sort this out- if the note is within a short distance of the bottom of the image, place the caption to the right instead. I can't remember if the old image layout did this as well but I don't see why the layout change would have caused this bug.

Image annotations running off of image, not displaying

Image annotations are being lost either by being below or beyond the edge if the image they relate to. This has only happened since the new image display system was implemented. The old image system allowed annotations to run below and of the side of an image, where as the new one crops the text to fit only over the image. The old image annotation system also wrapped the text after a number of characters, where as the new system allows text to run on indefinably  Users can manually insert line breaks in the annotations with the new system (not possible with the old system), however for old instructables this introduces the problem of annotations running off the image and being unreadable. This appears to be on every instructable, providing there are annotations on the images, and the annotations are long enough, or positioned such that they run past the edge, or bottom of the image. An example of this is: https://www.instructables.com/id/Cat-enclosure-with-high-cat-walktunnel-utilizes-/ On this instructable there are examples of both running of the edge of an image, and falling off the bottom. It also shows an exception to the problem, the first image allows the annotation to go beyond the boundary of the image, but all subsequent images have the issue.

Help with annotate function in python

Hi everyone I'm trying to plot live data on Python from an arduino through the serial port. I found some difficulties with annotate function. I don't know how to configure it or whether the place where I have put annotate function is it the the right place or not For example: for every point in temperature, i want the value to be printed next to the point ? this is my python code import serial # import Serial Library import time #import time import numpy  # Import numpy import matplotlib.pyplot as plt #import matplotlib library from drawnow import * temperature= [] vitesse= [] charge= [] current= [] Time = [] arduinoData = serial.Serial('com5', 9600) #Creating our serial object named arduinoData plt.ion() #Tell matplotlib you want interactive mode to plot live data cnt=0 ##fig1 = plt.figure() STARTINGTIME = round(time.time(),2) def makeFig(): #Create a function that makes our desired plot     plt.subplot(2,2,1)     plt.subplot(2,2,1).annotate(str(temperature)+','+ str(Time), textcoords='offset points')     plt.title('Live Streaming Temperature Sensor Data')     plt.ylabel('Temperature C')     plt.grid(True)     plt.plot(temperature, 'ro-')     plt.subplot(2,2,2)     plt.subplot(2,2,2).annotate(str(vitesse)+','+ str(Time), textcoords='offset points')     plt.title('Live Streaming Speed Sensor Data')     plt.ylabel('Speed KM/H')     plt.grid(True)     plt.plot(vitesse, 'bo-')     plt.subplot(2,2,3)     plt.subplot(2,2,3).annotate(str(charge)+','+ str(Time), textcoords='offset points')     plt.title('Live Streaming SOC Sensor Data')     plt.ylabel('Battery Charge %')     plt.grid(True)     plt.plot(charge, 'go-')     plt.subplot(2,2,4)     plt.subplot(2,2,4).annotate(str(current)+','+ str(Time), textcoords='offset points')     plt.title('Live Streaming Current Sensor Data')     plt.ylabel('Current A')     plt.grid(True)     plt.plot(current, 'yo-') while True: # While loop that loops forever     while (arduinoData.inWaiting()==0): #Wait here until there is data         pass #do nothing     arduinoString = arduinoData.readline() #read the line of text from the serial port     dataArray = arduinoString.split(';')   #Split it into an array called dataArray     temp = float (dataArray[0])     vite = float (dataArray[1])     char = float (dataArray[2])     curr = float (dataArray[3])     temperature.append(temp)                     #Build our temperature array by appending temp readings     vitesse.append(vite)                     #Build our vitesse array by appending temp readings     charge.append(char)                     #Build our charge array by appending temp readings     current.append(curr)                     #Build our current array by appending temp readings     Time.append(round(time.time(),2) - STARTINGTIME)     drawnow(makeFig)                       #Call drawnow to update our live graph     plt.pause(0.00001)     cnt=cnt+1     if(cnt>50):         temperature.pop(0)         vitesse.pop(0)         charge.pop(0)         current.pop(0)

Annotation/Note boxes never line up where they are supposed to.

Annotation box may not be the right word, because I've never done an Instructable, but I am talking about the "Note" boxes that you hover over to see the author's note on his project images. They rarely line up with what they are supposed to, no matter what Instructable I view. So I don't think it's the author's fault (Sometimes they are even way out of whack, like on the wrong side of an image), I think it's a bug.For example, scroll down to the image of the pear painted on the glass on this page, and notice where the note is. Several of his images are that way, some are worse off than others:https://www.instructables.com/id/Layered_glass_art/?InstructImages

What happened to the Instructable Photo Editor?

When adding photos to an Instructable the photo has a "view/edit" link on the imported photo.  Clicking it used to take you to a photo editor to crop, adjust, color correct annotate, etc.  Now the link only lets you view the photo. Has the photo editor gone away or is it located somewhere else.  It was so  nice to be able to edit photos via the Instructable website as needed.   Thanks,

"Last post" bug in "Your Forum Topics" listing

I just ran into an interesting bug in the generation of my "Your Forum Topics" list. See the annotated image capture below from my Web browser (Firefox 2.0.0.8 running on MacOSX 10.4.11). I had posted a reply in the first topic shown, but the "last post by" indicator was duplicated to all three topics. Clearly there were no actual replies generated, since the second and third both show zero.

Can anyone Identify this IR Receiver Component?

Hi, I have been doing some desoldering to get hold of components and I have got myself the IR Receiver pictured. This is labelled as the annotations show, 4524C, M and C, and on the reverse says F2. This component was taken from a water damaged Canon MVX30i, but I would like a datasheet for the component found. Can anyone help me find a datasheet for this, or suggest what the four connections would be? Thanks, AMouse197

Massive View Spike

Can anyone suggest why the amount of views on my Instructable spiked massively? I notice there is a Top Referers tab in the stats for my Instructable, but this won't load - I was hoping to see if some external site had linked the Instructable as it is a huge increase in views - over 3 times as many views than when I originally posted it. The annotation labels on the images describe whats going on...I hope you can see theses - I couldn't in the preview. Also, is there a better place to post a question like this. I went into the Questions but there wasn't a help using the Instructables website​ category.

Subtle non-bug with new "(author)" comment identifier

As I've noted in a separate thread, there's a new feature in comments -- any comment by the original author of the Topic, I'ble, Answer, whatever, is identified with "(author)" next to their name, and now with a blue background on the full comment text. There's a subtle bug involved with this. When the original author first creates a comment, either at the top level or by replying to someone in a thread, their comment shows up without the annotation. It is only after reloading the page that the "(author)" and blue background appear. UPDATE 3 Feb 2009: As Lebowski has noted below, this is not actually a bug, and definitely isn't important to "fix" :-)

Is there a good text editor for the iPad?

I recently received an iPad for my birthday. I have been loading some of my favorite books into iTunes to read in the iBooks reader app. Some of these books I have scanned and run through OCR (optical character recognition) before generating the EPUB format that iBook uses. As much as I try to catch errors before I export to iTunes, I still find errors in the text of these books while I am reading them. So far, I have highlighted the passages that need to be edited and then gone back to the master file on my PC to correct them. Then I re-sync them to my iPad. Quite a laborious process and one that requires me to go back to my PC to fix things long after I have found them. Is there a text editor app for the iPad that I can use to edit either the text in the EPUB container (a collection of XHTML files) or to edit a plain text file to correct spelling, punctuation, etc? I would like to be able to edit the mistakes and then sync them back to my PC when I reconnect. While I would like to find a free app that would work, I would pay for an app that let me do this. Or, is there a way to sync annotations that you make in iBooks when you reconnect? I could develop a desktop application that could recognize annotation tags and edit the EPUB file from the tags. It seems like the iPad would be an ideal platform for proof-reading, but I haven't found the right software yet.

How do I take a contour off my balcony railing and transfer it to a piece of wood?

I have a planter designed to fit over a piece of 2x4 railing, and a railing on my balcony that is smaller than 2x4, and curved, with a non-rectangular side profile. Please see the photos. I have annotated the first three photos. It's hard to see from the photo of the railing, so I drew a side profile of the railing shape and photographed my drawing. The planter has a groove in the bottom so that it'll rest securely on the 2x4. I want to make an adapter out of wood so that the planter will rest securely over my railing. I plan to cut some wood to fit perpendicular to and against the railing, countoured to fit over the railing, and seat a piece of wood over the top of the railing, running parallel to it, to seat the planter into.

How would this schematic look on a circuit board?

I currently have this schematic for solar powering my Arduino board. I got this schematic directly off the instructable: https://www.instructables.com/id/Self-Sufficient-Arduino-Board/   I am a newbie to this kind of stuff and understand how circuit boards work but have spent hours trying to figure out how to correctly draw it like it was on a circuit board. I made a final attempt and drew it on a PCB circuit board template shown below. The components used are annotate with their polarity (the switch isn't cause it can go either way) and the red lines indicate the soldered connection. If someone could just check it out and make sure all the parts are right, it would be greatly appreciated. The main problem I have with it is the junction where the battery positive, switch and Arduino positive all meet. All help is greatly appreciated Thank you, Connor

What about a Mobile version of Instructables?

Hey guys, What do you think of a Mobile Version of Instructables for your iPod touch, iPhone, iPad or what ever else !  Lots of popular websites have started do make the mobile version of their website so that almost all of the website features would be available for mobile users. Like Youtube, Facebook or eBay. It would be great because important features cannot be used on the iPod; - We can't comment on 'ibles or post questions and write on forums - We can't see the annotations in the pictures - We can only see 2nd or 3rd pictures in an 'ible by loading all the page again and get down to the correct step - A mobile version would be lighter and faster to load on mobile devices - We can't see slideshows - We can't use full size pictures - Some others.. So that is why I think there should be a mobile version of Instructables ! Tell me what you think of this idea !

Do you think this FM Transmitter will work?

Heya, I've seen many ideas on how to build FM Transmitters on the web and successfully copied a couple of them. They are generally 2 or 3 transistor circuits which aren't very powerful when used with a small aerial. I've just designed a circuit with 4 transistors (2 of them being a darlington pair). So it's pretty similar to the two I've made just hopefully more powerful! The transistors i intend to use are BC548(b)'s because they're cheap and usable for high frequencies. Due to my really bad paint skills I'll annotate a few things on the schematic. On the left i just meant to show that the mp3 player plugs straight into the 3.5mm jack connected to the 330nf cap (all of the caps in the circuit are ceramic) and on the far right the triangle is the aerial which is connected to the 33nf cap. Thanks very much for reading this. I know that the aerial will be a BIG limiting factor to the range of it, but i wanted to design a more powerful circuit before i bought a new aerial anyway! So please can you leave any feedback. Best regards Sorry, but it's impossible to see the values of the components unless it's viewed in the original size, the only way i can see how to do that is by clicking on the little "i" in the top left of the picture.

8-Shot Deconstruction Round Concept

A long time ago, I looked at Mepain's 8-Shot Deconstruction Round Revolver, and I really liked the idea, but as all concepts, it didn't shoot far. Within 20 minutes the other day I had made a small, real-triggered pistol (cock+revolve+shoot) with 8 shots, where the firing pin hits a white rod off of a snowflake connector. This was meant to be a simple revolver for people with few pieces, or who just want a fun gun. At a 45 degree angle, I won't lie, it probably gets around 10-20 feet, depending on the wear and tear of your pieces. It won't win any wars, it is a simple sidearm so you can build more piece consuming firearms. I will have pictures up shortly. Edit: I've improved range by some number, and it is now more complex and piece consuming but more reliable, and the clip design has been perfected. Advantages over guns with magazines: - Never Jams. Ever. - Slanted handle with no magazine inside. No broken pieces or clumsy mag pushers in your way. - Bullets are spread out in a circle. It is very compact, especially if you use green rods instead of whites. - Detachable wheels. This means quick reload if you have extra wheels pre-built. - Easy trigger pull. You don't need a super-powerful rubber band to make it shoot far, so the trigger pull is smooth and easy. - Super easy to build. You don't need to be an expert in k'nex to know how this works. Because it takes up less space and pieces than a magazine, and the clip design requires no rubber bands (unless you really want auto-revolver) this design could easily be perfected and expanded upon to a rifle, or high-powered weapon. It uses one black Y-connector, for the trigger, and I'm sure there's another way to do it, but this is probably the best. I can't find my camera; when I do, I will have pictures up. Probably not instructions because the thing is easy to build from pictures and a pain to take apart, but I'll be answering questions frequently when it's up and posting helpful pictures to anybody who requests it. EDIT: Pictures here> https://www.instructables.com/community/TO67PH4GQ225YK9/. Click the "i" at the top-left to get rid of those pesky annotations.

Instructable's robot not sending me notifications? and other minor issues/inconsistencies

For the past week, I have not been receiving notifications for questions I have asked, or comments on my instructables. They do seem to appear in the orange board, and I have checked my settings for email notifications twice on different computers to verify it is not just me. I have also noticed that my recent replies to people are not answered or replied back to. Although it is difficult to tell since people to don't usually reply back anyway.So if you plan to reply, and I'll keep an eye out for any notifications and keep the page refreshed, and hopefully reply within the same day, maybe then you (the community who answered) can come back and verify if they did not receive the reply? I wonder if the same issue occurs with PM messengers, Not sure ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Also, I have been having other minor issues with instructables. All these minor inconsistencies make me wish the site went back to the old style, with a "high five" icon and bright neon 'home depot' color scheme. (I wonder how many remember that) Here is a list of what I can think up of off the top of my head; 1) Often, I have to hit the "reply" button twice to get a comment posted. This is annoying because sometimes I will keep clicking reply, and nothing happens, then all of the sudden the comment gets posted 20 times, and I have to tediously go through and delete the 19 too many. This is not a slow internet problem, I literally have to click the reply button exactly twice no matter the connection or computer, then it takes a few seconds to actually post after that. 2) For comment threads which are pretty long, why is it when I click reply from the email, it always takes me to that page where only the very first comment in that thread is shown? It is rather annoying, as I have to click on the instructable or question the comment or answer was posted in, and hunt and peck for that comment to reply too. 3) For some reason, the 'new' commenting system (the one with the black thing that appears after selecting text) does not allow me to right click on selected items to copy/paste. To do that, I either have to use keyboard shortcuts which I never remember, or select and hold the left mouse click button down, then right click at the same time to get the menu to pop up. The old commenting system did not do that. 4) Also, why when I click on comments from the emails to reply, and the page I am taken to to reply, why does that still use the old (better) commenting system? I would prefer everything to use that old commenting system, and have it so I do not have to click the 'rich text editing' every time. Like it was back in the good-old days! 5) To top off the problematic commenting system, I found that the new system does not allow me to select some words, and turn them into a link. I can post the URL, and that will get shorted and does become a actual link. However, I do not like that workaround solution. I prefer to make my comments and embed links directly into my words to keep comments short and sweet. 6) Sometimes when going to the home page, clicking the 'community' button to expect a drop down menu to go straight into 'answers' it does not work and take me to the full page. This is very irritating when on a slow internet connection and trying to see the replies to my questions since the notifications do not work, and you are conditioned to only get to the same place one way. This seems to happen more often when the DSL is really slowed down. 7) Why is it when I submit a question and post a picture, that I cannot add annotations like I can when posting instructables? There is an blank box area on the screen where is seems like a plugin is missing for the picture annotations, though it does work when posting instructables. Also, I wish they go back to the old yellow resizable boxes. I liked those MUCH better than the new ugly white fuzzy-grainy looking boxes which are more cumbersome. 8) Perhaps it is a pro feature, not sure, but why can't we delete or edit comments after they have been posted? Youtube allows that, Facebook allows that, everything allows that nowadays. Sometimes the auto-cucumber will screw up what I post and I am just hopeless when it comes to proofreading. I always miss things that I see clearly after posting. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Hopefully these things will be addressed, it would make the site much easier to use altogether. Especially the messy commenting system which seems to have become REALLY fragmented and broken from the years of updating. EDIT: ​There is further discussion at my original question on the question page here. I forgot to include this at the time of posting this bug report: https://www.instructables.com/answers/Instructables-robot-not-sending-me-notifications/

Knex Revolver Pictures

***THIS IS NOT A PRIMARY WEAPON, BUT A SECONDARY. I am tired of people nagging me about it, it's a k'nex gun that shoots as far as any other powerful pistol, but the main thing I'm emphasizing here is QUICK RELOAD and RELIABILITY (no jams, mag pushers, or anything to get between you and your challenger). It's just a handgun that I slapped a stock on to look cool, so you can stop telling me that some kid's sniper is better or deconstruction round guns are things of the past because that's just your excuse to put me down. I'm not complaining, I'm just stating the obvious. 1. The whole gun, stock, clip, mech, and all. 2. This is with the clip on. 3. This is what it looks like when you take the clip off. 4. This is a front view of the clip the gun uses (I didn't show any empty clips, just take all the white rods off for an empty clip.) 5. And a side view of the clip this gun utilizes. 6. This is what it looks like when you hold it... The handle looks like crap compared to the TDS but actually is very comfy, as the white rods stick out around your fingers. 7. The retarted FPS angle that everyone seems to love. Stats (KI Template): Type: Revolver Weight: N/A Ammo Type: White or Green Rod Range: N/A* Firing Interval: 1.5 seconds Mag Capacity: 8 Rounds Mag Reload Time: 2.5 seconds *This one really depends. A newer white connector will not shoot as far as an older one since the older one will release the white rod easier. That being said, mine shoots about 20-30 feet with a single #64 rubber band at a slight upwards angle with an old connector. Not bad! Sadly, it does not auto-revolve, but there are no clumsy mag pushers poking at you, and while it takes longer to cock and shoot, the reload time is VERY fast, you disconnect a connector and connect a new one, so if you're fast I'd say 1-2 seconds. Also, if the annotations get in your way just click the white "i" at the top-left. EDIT: New double-cylinder. Slightly slower than reloading regular single-cylinders, but easier to carry around. 7. A picture of the gun with the double-cylinder. 8. The new clip, by itself. New Round: Mag Capacity: 16 Rounds Mag Reload Time: 2.7 seconds Yes, I know this design is relatively old. Yes, I know other people have done this. This is the first to feature a design specifically for detachable clips. This may not seem like much, but it reloads extremely fast, and with the double-cylinder design, can outlast any pistol in a firefight. Why? Well, for one, as opposed to loading in each bullet individually (if you use post-it notes they can clog up your gun no matter how you put them in), this comes in packs of eight and sixteen. Also, there are no rubber bands for the clips, so no jamming, no mag pushers, and no friction from the bullets. If you rush and slip up with a "regular" gun, you potentially have a broken clip, or bullets everywhere, or a jam. With this, the only punishment is a longer reload time. Also, while conventional knex gun clips have a lot of pieces, a single-cylinder clip has MORE ammo pieces than non-ammo pieces, and the double-cylinder clip has very few pieces as well. This means you can have more clips built, and the number of bullets you can hold expands exponentially! So again, while this couldn't fight soley against the SwagBoss, or the Knexsayer, or big knex guns, I would put my money on this above any other sidearm due to its reliability and the fact that its reload time is super short.
