Moving where the stock card notes appear.

Is it possible to set whereabouts the notes for the stock card appear on screen, or can you set them to appear, as well as the image, when you click on the "more" button.

Cheers

The text position is set in Norcat / Config / Advanced / Tables.

Text can be set to be alongside the colour/size table, above, or below. The variable TextPos (near bottom of that screen) sets this.

In addition if text is to be alongside the colour/size table then the parameter TableClr defines how many pixels should be free after the table (this can be quite big for items with many sizes). If there's no room then the text will be placed at the IfNoRoom position.
or can you set them to appear, as well as the image, when you click on the "more" button
As to alternatively putting the text and image into a pop-up window instead this too can be done with some limitations. Text in the T2T notes field can be split into main product and popup text by separating it with a special sequence of characters (like $$). This string is defined in Norcat / Config - field Alt Sep. So if that was set to $$ and your T2T notes was

Compact info.$$Long boring info that goes on forever....

Then the main product page would contain the text "Compact info." and the rest would appear on the popup page.

If you wanted no normal text and it all to appear in the popup page then simply start all yout T2T notes fields with "$$". E.g.

$$Info for the popup page only.

The popup page can only show a single image and this is automatically assigned if you save the image with a filename that is the 6 digit T2T product reference and with the suffix "-p". E.g. T2T product 001234 would use pop-up image 001234-p.jpg (or jpeg or gif).

There's a little more info on the Popup page capability in the Norcat Options and Flags document which can be found under the Operation Guide link on http://www.drillpine.biz/norcat/

Just search that doc for "popup".
