How to link to expandable text with gliffy?

Is there a way to link from a text in my Gliffy diagram to a text that is expandable? I tried with an anchor but I didn't get it to work. The text I want to link to is on the same page as my Gliffy diagram.

I also wonder if it is possible to open my link in a popup window, when I am clicking on my link?

Gliffy's link dialog will allow you to link to any "Heading 1" and "Heading 2" lines on the same page as the diagram. I'm not sure what you mean by "text that is expandable" but will linking to a header work for you?


Thanks for your answer.

Not really, I am using the headings and added my text in a table as a workaround at the moment. It works ok but is not really what I asked for.

I got a lot of text and I don't want to show everything at once. Therefore I have created the text within the expand macro. When I click on my gliffy I want to be linked to the text and get it expanded. I tried to add an anchor but it doesn't work when the expand is closed.

An alternetive solution that I also whish for: when I click on my gliffy I will get a popup with my text. Is that possible some how?

Regarding Emmeli's final comment, "when I click on my gliffy I will get a popup with my text", this is what I would like. I would like this to work like a tooltip.I want to define an area over which text will appear when the mouse hovers over.  My diagram is large and the terms need definition without going to another window. How can I accomplish this?

Ok. Thanks for clarifying.

Can you please submit this to our Confluence feature request forum:
