    Hi, a +1 for controlling the size of the displayed images relative to the viewer. In most of my cases they need to be bigger. Cheers!

    @James

    I could use 'target="_self" instead of blank' as well.
    I am making a game for six year olds:

    https://sketchfab.com/models/f518b961f41049ca8ec1378993c2a3d8/embed

    And I am going to use a lot of links (like n° 4) for little games (e.g. drawing).
    But if the link always creates a new tab, there will be too many tabs at the end of the game (4 levels x 5 links=20!).
    This game is part of a bigger project and if all goes well, it will be used by hospitals in Belgium.
    Can you help me?
    Thank you in advance

    Hi there,

    I'm afraid it's not possible to force (and not planned to allow) links in Annotations to target _self. Even if it were, the link would open in the embedded iframe itself, not in the main browser tab.

    You could build something more custom using the Viewer API, though!

    Thank you for your answer! 
    I found a workaround: I gave the little games that open in another tab a 'back' button (for when you are finished playing).
    This button closes the tab of the little game, so you go back to the previous tab (sketchfab).

    Is it in any way possible that all the annotations are opened at the same time and from te beginning?
    I know you can open one with ?annotation = x, but I guess you can only do this with one annotation?

    Cool, nice workaround.

    I'm afraid only one annotation can be open at a time. An annotation is associated with a camera position, and the camera cannot be in more than one position at the same time :)

    Hi! Is it possible to use Markdown to create annotations that are simply a few seconds of audio clips?

    @mhogue Hi! I'm afraid there's no support for adding audio or other rich media to annotations at the moment. We do support adding sounds in the viewer, but they currently can't be synced to an annotation.

    Can I currently create tables using markdown within annotations? I see its possible in the "Extra Markdown Specification" but I cant seem to get it working in the model.

    I'm afraid tables are not supported in descriptions or annotations at the moment. What's the use case?

    Hello James,

    I would like to know if it's possible to zoom an image so if it has a text you can read it clearly. If not, is there another way?

    Thanks!

    MANiacos - I've done it where the image itself links to a large view in its own tab using the following syntax:

    [ ! [ ] (image url) ] (image url)

    Yep, that's exactly what I was going to recommend.

    I have just learned how to get images visable in an annotation.

    Then I tried to make it clickable by using the syntax [![](link/to/image)](https://.../../imagename.jpg). The link to the image is still there but the image in the annotation frame is exchange by a boring thumbnail symbol. How to avoid this result?

    I found the solution by reading Imendelson´s recipe. Thanks!
