Is your feature request related to a problem? Please describe.
It’s not really a problem, but a nice to have
Describe the solution you’d like
When I click on “Add cover image”, I’d like to have the option “Searching / Choosing from …”.
The … would be one of the following (of your choice, not user choosable, bcs all of them are nice:
- or similar
Then I thought, the imageblocks might have the same option.
Would be very nice, because in this way, one could add almost for each case a fitting image without leaving anytype.
And if privacy in this case would be a concern, those users who think so just don’t need to start a search, so no data is sent.
Describe alternatives you’ve considered
Maybe an internal library of my own images, but it’s not a real alternative but more a addon.
@wemiprog Agree, this would be nice to have, like Notion. Being able to add one or more local paths would be nice, too.
Just please don’t automatically add a random cover image before I get to choose one, like Notion does. Very useless behavior (to me), that wastes time.
This could be implemented as an add-on/extension. I, for one, won’t ever be using this feature and I am pretty sure there will be people using Anytype completely offline, with their firewall blocking the app.
Even if it gets implemented, I totally agree with @Oshyan, Anytype should never assign a random cover image to the page unless there is a switch to disable the feature.
@wemiprog @Oshyan @BGray thank you for pouring your thoughts about cover optimization! We added this feature to our tracker and will develop it in the near future
May I ask when this near future will arrive?
(But this one is just a nice to have, top priority not required ;))
Very soon! It’s under quality control, so maybe even in the next release
An update: with Anytype Android 0.6.1, Unsplash support has been added. Unsplash on Anytype Desktop isn’t available yet - I’ll keep this issue open.
Unsplash support is added for Desktop app as well in v0.25.0
