Draft label with hyperlink

Post by PeterPNoster »

Dear community,
Is it possible to set an draft label on the 3D Part and set up an hyperlink, to an internal/external document, such as a pdf drawing or a text document?
Click on the draft label and the system viewer displays the document.

Cheers, PeterPNoster

do not think there is now, but sounds like a really nice feature to have.

if nothing else, should be possible to do with a macro, with a document/selection observer it ought to be possible to get a trigger working upon selection - doing the system call from that is trivial.

[feature request]Re: Draft label with hyperlink

Dear heda,
I agree, this could be a very nice feature.
The context. I try to build up an existing product in FC. That product is easily configurable, but the assembling process is quite complicated.
So, the plan is to build that product in FC and put here and there a few annotation labels with additional information saved in an external documents.

Unfortunately my macro skills, aren't that good, maybe someone could build it. :)

I've opened a feature request: https://github.com/FreeCAD/FreeCAD/issues/7062
