When an annotation is used with a tool to explain some feature of the tool, often text is not sufficient, and the abilioty to display one or more graphics is needed. This can currently be done in a Custom Tool that is used as an annotation, and it is probably possible to do so in an annotation as well (but I have not discovered the method). Doing so requires editing the session state manually by putting a filename in the <panelStyleList>section of the plotManager for the tool. An example can be seen in http://demo.oicweave.org/weave.html?file=test-custom-glyph-pie_v2.weave .

There is now a GUI for entering an image URL in a "Single Image" layer. In CustomTool (or any tool), go to the Layers tab and click [New layer...].
