    Hi Rion,

    Thanks for the post. The issue you have highlighted here is one that others have raised. We have plans to allow users to choose how the links open from the hotspots in a future release of the Creately plugin. When it's available we'll make an announcement.

    Thanks

    Nick

    Any idea of date when we can expect updating of the hotspot feature?

    I am shocked and dismayed that Creately does not have a feature that allows designers to flag how the target browse session is launched from a link (i.e. _self, _new.window, _popup) I have dependencies on new browse instances that require the standard menu and right most vertical scroll bars. All my links take me to 'popup' windows which block 50% of the page for lack of a scrollbar. Similarly there are no _mouseover features as well. Maybe I am missing something here, but this is a fundamental, and widely used features in many basic web-based prototyping tools. This merits a response :/

    Hi Peter,

    Thanks for the comment and apologies to Rion for missing is other question about timing of the feature. I agree that this is a very useful and expected feature. I have raised it again as something that is very important. Right now we are working on some new features for Creately Online however we do have plans following that for a Confluence plugin release and I hope to get this improvement bundled with that release. Once it's available I'll let you know.

    Thanks

    Nick

    Nick,

     

    I looked forward to this issue being resolved in your latest 1.8.2 version, but no luck. Other people seem to have the same need and yet this problem seems to have no or very low status at Creately?

    When and in which version can  we expect to have this hyperlink issue implemented?

     

    Regards

    Rion

    Hi Rion,

    Thanks for the posting. Creately for Confluence 1.8.2 was a very quick release just to address a particular issue in the plugin when viewing diagrams in wiki pages in IE 9 and IE 10. It didn't affect the core parts of the application as the change to hyperlink functionality will need to do. I have your request high on the priority list with the dev team. The next pieces of work after the current work they have will be this hyperlink work and confluence 5 compatibility. The hyperlink work will affect all editions of Creately that use the diagram  viewer.

    Thanks

    Nick

    Nick,

    Any progress on this request? Creately 1.9.0 still opens up diagram hotspots in new tab of browser, without the option of opening in same browser window.

    Hi Rion,

    No progress has been made on this. I'll try and get it scheduled for the next review of the diagram viewer. It requires changes in the app and diagram viewer so it requires more planning.

    Thanks

    So Nick, is there no hope for this request to be added to Creately? See you are now on 1.10.1 already.

    Regards

    Hi Rion,

    Yes this is still outstanding. I will chase it up with renewed vigor. It does require changes across the board to the app and player so that might have been delaying it.

    Thanks

    Nick

    We are on Creately 1.11.0 and our request to open hotspots in same window has not been heeded yet. We have now started to move away from using Creately on our Intranet for this reason.

    Let me know if Creately has any plans regarding this feature request.

    Thanks,

    Rion

    I'm sorry Nick, but due to Creately not wanting to incorporate the feature we requested, we have now formally abandoned Creately as our diagramming solution. We did not renew our subscription and will look for other products.

    Regards, Rion
