Zoom Card AND See Card Notes?

Post by Lance Boyle »

Apologies if this has already been explained earlier. One thing I love about Orphalese is the Zoom Card feature, so I can easily study a card's graphic details. I also love that people can add card notes specific to a deck; that's another great study feature. I just can't figure out how to access both of those features at the same time.

If I'm studying a card, I frequently wish that I could also look at the notes for that card, side-by-side with the zoomed image.

Is that possible? If the program can't easily do that now, but you think it could be modified to do so, then please add that to a list of enhancement requests.

Seeing card notes would also be nice with the Compare Cards tool, but I don't want to be too greedy. Thanks for your attention, and for making such a terrific program. :-)

Or... I could just enlarge the deck on the tabletop to a large-enough size and use the pop-up card notes from there. Doh!

Handling very large card images on the tabletop is sometimes a tad clumsy; newly dealt cards can appear underneath the deck and require some dragging around to improve visibility, but it's hard to complain about that. Talk about a first-world problem! 8-|

Okay, I'm getting there. I realized I can minimize/hide the deck on the tabletop by putting it into the box at the bottom left, and then use the spacebar to deal new cards. Very large card images are easy to handle, and the pop-up notes are there!

Apologies for wrestling with this here in public! I finally got there, though. Thanks again and carry on. :$

What I typically do is use my ctrl-+ or ctrl-- to resize the card and just open the notes with an F6. I've never really used the actual zoom. <:o)

I'd like to resize the reading ..AND

and a click zoom where the card clicked is full screen with the tooltip text ... maybe hit the right arrow key to go to the next card in the reading.. or left arrow to back up
