Feature request: scale bar on images

Post by AstroBernd » 17 May 2021, 19:33

I would like an image scale bar on Plate solved Images to show the scale (10”, 30’ or whatever makes sense).
Same design as the N-E marker, maybe in the lower left of the image.
Would this help others as well?
Sincerely
Bernd

Hi Bernd - I would also like to have this available somehow. Perhaps as an extra annotation type, that You can place anywhere in the image, and that automatically add/remove tickmarks depending on it's size.

I can confirm that this feature will be added, maybe also in kilometers for comets.
For the moment, if you need to add a scale marker to many images for publication (from the same instrument), consider the Logo annotation.
Thanks, Fabio.

Logo annotation is a good hint.
Thanks Fabio
