Currently the following display the whole ID.. can I only display the first 4 character ?

<i r="1" a="1"><e k="1" i="00100020"/></i>

It's not possible to restrict the displayed annotations to specific number of characters. We'll consider customizing this using an additional parameter.

I had the same issue with iQ-VIEW and they resolved adding modifiers close to the DICOM tags syntax in order to let the user decide how many digits to show...

something like that:

<i r="1" a="1"><e k="1" i="00100020"$digits(4)/></i>

the $digit(x) modifier let's the user choose how many digits should be displayed on screen

a similar tweak would be a bless in RadiAnt...
sometimes the values of certain DICOM tags are so long that they cause incredible crowding over the image

If I were a RadiAnt team I would make the entire regex processing available at once, just by importing a single yet powerful library ; )

Boskar: only using own code does have advantages.
