That would be great if we could use linked images in the background (resizable of course). So that we could place nodes on special parts of it.
This program is amazing though !
Congratulations for that great work.

Or maybe you could have nodes that appear just as the bitmap that they contain.
Another wish would be a free polygon tool added to the shapes tools.

To say the whole truth I can explain what I would like to achieve so that you can see if that is something for you:
A geographical map of my city on which you can localize all the ongoing projects, and the possible ones, and find all infos about them. ( I'm an architect)
You would see the whole map, click on a node (a site in the city)and open a local map with all infos related: customer, owner, sketches done, ongoing work , articles in the news about that place ....
I believe all I need to do this are the above wishes.
(especially the first one, the second would be to be able to highlight certain zones on the map following the contours of the site)
Keep up the good work!

Hi Oliver,

I think with a little creativity, we can find a solution to your need.
In the latest version of VUE, we have added "Layers". If you add an image to a layer and lock it, you can then superimpose nodes over it.
To download the latest version of VUE, go to the Download section of the VUE website, and look in the "Experimental corner". you can use the Preview build, or the "build of the day".

Here's a video on how to create a background image:

Best,

Thanks Melanie!
What a quick answer!
I was sure it would be a easy task for you to find a workaround.
Congratulations again for this piece of really intelligent software.
all the best

Hello again,

I tried with the new version, and the layers makes it possible to place nodes on top of an image.
But the bad news is that it seems that you can't integrate different layers in the Dynamic frame, which means I can't see a zoom of the map with the nodes on top (because they are in another layer)
I hope this could be fixed.
Best regards,
olivier
