Update about new features in 7.8.0

  • Composition of artifacts, e.g. to make a collection of books with the individually books as sub artifacts
  • Required types which could come in handy for e.g. case study
  • Drag and drop for images

Question about entering data for images

  • Images can be added to a source (at the file tab of the source).
  • It was recommended to add license information as early as possible.
  • We created a question issue (#1883) about image annotation

Question about entering data for manuscripts

  • The new sub artifact feature can be used to add more information about parts of a manuscript, e.g. the binding, in a structured way
  • A more detailed way of entering structured data was given by the example of a note attached to a manuscript:
    • Creating the manuscript as an artifact
    • Adding the note as a sub artifact
    • Creating a source for the content of the note and link it to the note artifact (when editing the source)
