Q: a bought, adding favorites
« on: May 20, 2019, 09:38:54 AM »
looking for some direction, on the easiest way to add "favorites "   into a theme

i have never had them in a theme before...  where say like selecting and un-selecting
with an icon that shows up,,,  thanks anyone..

ok i see their is an "add/remove favorite" under controls  to assign to key or button
but how is this linked to an image to show or hide?

Favorites is like a tag that can be used in/as a filter.

You can use a magic token or magic token custom function to change a text object’s msg. You can also use a magic token custom function to change an image’s name. Empty string will show no image.

You can also use a callback for crazier stuff.
