Custom Macro Annotation

When a custom (bespoke for @chrislove) macro is created, I would like the option to create an annotation that goes along with the tool.  This is entirely cosmetic, but might help users to recognize the macro.

 

Thanks,

Mark

+1 Yes please, great idea!  I'd also love for the custom annotations to be responsive to changes to the macro options chosen by the user.

Status changed to: Revisit

Thank you for your feedback! We love the idea of being able to customize annotations for macros to encourage sharing macros. However we cannot place this feature in a near future release at this time. We'd like to revisit this idea though in the future when discussing our next road maps. We'll update this idea again when that occurs and we're better able to speak on if or when this feature can be included.

7 - Meteor

Is there a solution in place now? Otherwise +1

@tonyadam @bjoernV I guess it would be interessting for you tow as well. 🙂

4.5 years and counting - hoping I can help bump this one back into visibility  🙂

Seems like a pretty simple addition, and I agree this would be extremely useful to provide a default annotation the same way a regular tool dropped onto the canvas comes with a default annotation
