I am currently playwing with a use case where a "Tiles" or Gallery widget would be really cool and helpful. Where you could view a grid of uploaded images or pdfs that you could click to get a full screen view of the full "card information/content" and then preferably be able to interact with (comments and likes).
In our case for the Inner Development Goals Summit we want people to be able to submit projects and ideally they would show up in a scrollable grid of "Title images" where people could then click and read about the full project individually and then comment/interact.
I will experiment with having three columns and posting pdfs that allow commenting (and potentially annotating). I noticed that the annotation tool does not follow when I click for full page view. That is a separate functionality question, but a suggestion for development as well: let annotation and pinning follow in full page view for pdfs.
The prototype iteration 1 of "Gallery"
Annotation functionality disapears in full screen mode
I appreciate any feedback or ideas for other workarounds or options that you might think of. Thanks!
During the new UI project we are planning to add Gallery/Slides mode for Image widget. Also we have some ideas for more flexible containers. These should be pretty helpful in this kind of cases, but unfortunately new UI is not ready before your event so we have to handle it with existing tools...
Since these require commenting, I am also thinking that could it work if the images/pdf:s are added as super chat comments and then discussion is held below these as replies?
Regarding your suggestion about let annotation and pinning follow in full page view for pdfs I think we have thought about that before also. We need to have some way to see the original image without pins and this has been used as a way to do it, but I agree that it disables some other use cases. Maybe the full screen mode would need own toggle for show/hide pinning & annotations. I added this to our roadmap.
Sounds great with the upcoming additional mode for Image widget. Right now the latest iteration we've tried with pdf's and possibly just skip the annotating and stick with comments (still experimenting with/out emojis). I will try out your suggestion to just use the superchat as well and see how that will turn out.
