Edit a note‎ > ‎

Editing the image

Notes can be switched between text and image modes at any time using the text/images mode button in the toolbar. A note can contain both text and images at the same time - use the button to change what is being displayed.

Text mode:

By default, new notes will be created in text mode. The text/image mode button, on the far right of the toolbar, displays as a picture. Clicking on this button will change the note to image mode.

Image mode:

When the note is set to image mode the note can display .JPEG and .PNG image files. The text content is not destroyed when changing the note to image mode, it is simply hidden. Click the text/image mode button again to switch back to text mode - the text will then be displayed and the image is hidden. 

Editing in image mode:

To edit the image in a note, double click a note in image mode so that it is highlighted with a purple ring:

Image URL:

Images available publicly on the internet can be added to notes using the 'Image URL' box. Enter the URL of an image uploaded to a website or server in the 'Image URL' box and StickyNotePages will use that image directly. Once the URL has been entered, click out of the note and your image should appear.

There are a few rules which you must follow for an image to be visible. The image which the URL is pointing to must:

  1. be a PNG or JPEG file
  2. be a publicly available image, or at least be available to the people who you wish to see the image. If your image is uploaded to the connect content library then make sure that the permissions on "Allow Public Viewing " is set to "Yes" for guests to view the content.
  3. be on a server that has a cross-domain policy file*. This is a security config file that sits on the root of a web server that allows flash applications, such as StickyNotePages, to view files on that server / site. Most public image hosting services, like PhotoBucket, or using your Connect content library will already be configured for you, but personal and corporate domains may need additional setup
  4. Images will only display when used in a connect room they will not display when the pod is used locally

Image size and aspect ratio:

The size of the image will change as you resize the note using the bottom right corner. By default, the 'Maintain Aspect Ratio' check box will be active, keeping the image in it's native shape. If you wish to stretch the image either horizontally or vertically then un-check the 'Maintain Aspect Ratio' box and the shape of the image will then fill the note. 


Connect content:

StickyNotePages EE can make use of images stored in your Adobe Connect content library. When editing a note in image mode click on the "Connect content" button.


You will be prompted to log using your Adobe Connect credentials. Please note that these may not be the same as your ActiveC cloud account credentials. Once the credentials are entered, a window will appear allowing you to browse the image files in your connect content library. 

Click on either the "My Contents" or "Shared Contents" to choose a location and the list will populate with every image file held within the selected location. Highlighting a file will display a preview of the image on the left. Once the preview has loaded the "Open" button is enabled. Click on the "Open" button, the connect content window will disappear and the image URL field is now populated with the desired image URL. Click outside of the note to exit edit mode and the image is now displayed within the note.

Please note that if the "My Contents" or "Shared Contents" buttons fail to appear please check your permissions on your Connect server and the Connect installation. You may not have permissions to see the content library or the feature may not be part of your installation. The shared content button will only function if you have been granted permission to access this directory by an administrator with Connect Central.

cross-domain policy file is an XML document that grants a web client—such as Adobe Flash Player, Adobe Reader, etc.—permission to handle data across multiple domains. When a client hosts content from a particular source domain and that content makes requests directed towards a domain other than its own, the remote domain would need to host a cross-domain policy file that grants access to the source domain, allowing the client to continue with the transaction. Policy files grant read access to data, permit a client to include custom headers in cross-domain requests, and are also used with sockets to grant permissions for socket-based connections.  For more information click here
