Removing frames from sketches images

Hello,
Do you know if it's possible to remove the frames from images inserted through sketches (see images below)? 
Thank you for your support.

    @Julius_Saguinsin_81, I agree, this would be nice to have. It looks like an image needs at least 1 edge to remain in the studio. I added a button to  Image - Custom Feature that "removes" the border by scaling it down and moving it to the origin of the studio. This isn't completely removing it, but it will get it out of the way for you.

    That's pretty cool!
    You could almost use that as a label "hack". Now that assembly sketch pictures are possible, is there a way to get that to show up in the assembly?

    Interesting take, Michael. I saw you're creating like 10 overlapping images to make it opaque. It might be nice to have an alpha input to control that with.

    @Evan_Reese great idea!

    @eric_pesty, not atm. custom feature sketches aren't visible to assemblies or drawings.

    Updated! Not sure how to access the preview slider count parameter. I'm sure there is a hidden way to use that. Until then we'll have to scroll:

    @MichaelPascoe have you thought about.......

    Changing the lower left origin of the image in the sketch? Allow the origin to be repositioned on the image would help when sizing the image. Currently with your script and OS's image placement, you position the image, then you scale it, which moves the alignment, then you repeat the process. The madding way around this is to iterate on an answer when placing an image.

    You're a few lines of code from solving this day one issue with image placement. By repositioning the image and making the origin the point of alignment, you'd be able to position the image, scale it and then rotate it one time ending the vicious cycle currently required to place an image in OS.

    There is a really old ER to fix this issue and I think you could solve this problem easily with your script. Everyone using images to design would switch to your image placement script with these simple enhancements.

    @billy2, this is good feedback. I've added your improvement requests to the comments in my document. This would be good to have.

  • billy2billy2 Member, OS Professional, Mentor, Developers, User Group Leader Posts: 1,864 PRO
    If you would like a co-author, share the document with me and I'll write it in branch. If you like it, you can merge it into main.

    @billy2, Let's do it! Shared and branched. I can post an official forum release with both of us as the authors when your finished.

    Great! You do realize this could be this forums 1st successful collaboration, I'm excited. I'm working with another group and the branch/merge thing is working really well over there. I'm hoping it works well when editing feature scripts also, I believe it will.

    I in the document thanks,

    I've got the centering working and it's what I've always wanted. Check out the "Billy2" branch. I'm still working on rotating about the center point. 





    So you center the image about the insertion point using X center (%) & Y center (%) which is a percentage of the image and then you can scale the image. I think this is the use case people have always wanted. You insert an image, then center the image, then you can scale about the insert point and rotate about the insertion point.

    As a double check when collaborating:
    -you have total control over the document because you are the owner
    -your version is still active when I use the image FS from the toolbar (you're still controlling the version which is v4 currently)
    -I'm accessing my branch using the document's FS link not from the tool bar
    -As a public document, I can't update the FS link to the "Billy2" workspace (which is good)
    -I don't know if I version my workspace if I could update your link to a version in my workspace
    -I not going to version my branch
    -You can merge my branch to main, I think I can do that but won't
    -Then make a version, which would make mine available to the public
    -Whenever we merge a branch to main, we call the version "merged from Billy2" so we know that branch was merged back into main.
    -You can then delete the branch "Billy2", only you can do this since you're the document manager
    -I also added a description to the document property so we know what this feature does, everyone should do this.
    -I did not copy this feature script, modify it and make it public. We don't need more image feature scripts in this world. If someone writes something that's good, ask to share, branch and contribute to the effort. The document owner is always in control.

    Please give me a little more time to add rotate about center point.
