Can I use the Bookmarklet Toolbar on pages which contain IFrames?
Yes - the Toolbar will work on all the content in the main page, however content inside the IFrames cannot be annotated due to browser security restrictions. The toolbar will display a message if it detects a large amount of content on the page is contained within IFrames. You'll notice that your cursor won't reflect the currently selected tool when you mouse over the content in an IFrame. If the content you wish to annotate is in an IFrame, there are a few options. Some sites use the iframes to put their header bar on top of another sites content. In this case, some provide an easy way to go directly to the iframed site. If that isn't available, depending on your browser, you can force the content to open as its own webpage where the toolbar will work.
- For Firefox, right click on the frame of interest and in the pop up menu click "This Frame"->"Show Only This Frame" and then load the bookmarklet as usual.
- For Safari, right click on the frame of interest and in the pop up menu click "Open Frame in New Tab" and then load the bookmarklet as usual.
- Unfortunately Internet Explorer and Google Chrome do not offer options to easily open a iframe in a page by itself.
