Annotations are notes which are attached to passages of text or images in your documents. There are several types of annotation that can be applied to your documents. For example, you can apply various styles of text-highlights and highlight-boxes; you can create freehand annotations; you can add images and text in Comment Boxes; you can create links between documents within a workspace; and you can create hyperlinks to webpages outside of Annotate.co.
An example of a simple annotation might look something like this:

Every annotation has 2 parts to it: a highlight marked on the document, and an annotation box, which can contain user-written comments and additional information about the annotation, such as its author, its recipients, and the time and date it was created.
To create an annotation, you must first open a document in Document View and highlight a section of your document.
