Image notes cannot be created under Safari Answered

As noted in a recent Question, it is not possible to create image notes when using the Safari browser. I've confirmed this myself. Using any mouse-button combination causes the displayed image to be "dragged", as though you want to save a copy on the Desktop.

I've already given the user above the advice to install Firefox, but that's a crappy response. If the image notes are handled via standard JavaScript, they ought to "just work" on Safari or other non-Micros*t products :-)

If any of the Staff have Macs, would it be possible for you to reproduce and maybe narrow down the problem that's causing this behaviour?

Confirmed. We all have macs; we just primarily develop for Firefox.

I bet they just all own macs, but they play with other OS's.

I am the person who Kelseymh was trying to help but instead of using Firefox (I just love Safari) I opened each photo for my ible into Photoshop and wrote on the photos themselves, here , anyone else who is a dedicated Safari user can do the same until the bug is fixed.

:-) The difference is that the notes are now always present. The active image notes mean that users can see the full image until/unless they want to read the note, and that when I'ble generates the PDF version, the notes are written out separately, below the image. What you propose is a fine workaround. Users could also use GIMP or any other simple image editor, if they don't have the $800+ to slap down for Photoshop :-)

Wow, $800 is a lot of money for a program, I said Photoshop but really it's Photoshop lite. It's called Photoshop Elements and I got it free with my camera. I have used both though and for most stuff Elements is really fast and easy and the one I always open first. I have the real one too but it was a gift - I didn't know the price.

That's funny - I say "yellow boxes" you say "image notes". Right-brained vs left-brained.

"Image notes" is what Instructables calls them. I'm reporting a software bug to the developers; it is more communicative to use their own terminology.

I understood exactly what you meant with your original Question, and I'm sure all the other users did, too :-)
