Hiding text in a bitmap image is easy, and can even fun 8^)

There is also a field for editing the file name. Note the file extension is hidden. To enter notes and comments, they can be typed in the note window at the bottom center of the Data Manager as shown in the pictures Crusty posted.
Different files types have different capabilities as far as what can be edited. BMP files only allow the file name to be edited. The vehicle ID info displayed in the note field of a BMP file is for reference only and is not editable. The note window will have a white background when notes can be added to a file or edited, a light gray background when notes cannot be added or edited.
Will it ever be possible to edit Verus scanner files in this manner - adding or correcting vehicle data fields, writing notes, etc? it would really be handy and add to the value of these.

LOL

Yes, but the idea isn't to hide it :-)

You also don't want to overwrite what you saved.

EXACTLY. You don't want to change the picture AT ALL-!! You just want to put in additional information regarding a particular file and do that in SSC.

This bitmap was added to and then saved as a JPG. Not the same as adding information into the box at the bottom centre in SSC.
There was unused area in this image but you don't want to do this to an image of graphs.

It is currently possible to add notes to the .PIDs file on a Verus in the Data Manager. It is also possible to add or edit notes for a .PIDs in the note field using SSC.
I don't remember offhand when this was added to Verus, but I think it was around 15.4.

So we can add notes to .SCM files, and to .PID files.
Both are movie files (am I correct-?)
Any other file extensions we can add notes to-??

I tried changing/converting a couple of BMP files to JPG but no go. Won't allow adding notes....

What about editing the data fields, such as what type of car,year, component, etc? I don't think that can be done even yet, and would be extremely valuable.

I tried that too but couldn't get anywhere with it either.....

Just for the record, SSC has had some fantastic improvements and support in recent years-!!!
It augments our equipment immensely.

It is simply the best program of its kind hands down period.
Many times it has been the deciding factor on which of my many scan tools I pick up first
to do the job.

It was THE deciding factor for me almost 10 years ago-!
