To create an annotation, you must first open a document in Document View and highlight a section of your document.
Highlights indicate the section of your document to which your annotation is attached. Highlights can be applied to either text or images.
To apply a text-highlight to your document, first hover your cursor over the text. Your cursor will change to an I-beam pointer. Drag your cursor over the text that you wish to highlight. A colour-highlight will be applied to the fragment of text that you selected.
To highlight text, hold down the left mouse button and drag your cursor over the text that you wish to highlight.
To create a highlight-box on an image or fragment of text, hover your cursor over an area of your document which does not contain text. Instead of the I-beam pointer, you will see a cross-shaped selection pointer. Drag your cursor across the document to create your highlight-box.
Highlight-boxes can be created on images and fragments of text.
When you highlight a section of your document, the Annotation Editor will appear.
Once you have finished editing your annotations in the Annotation Editor, click the Save button to create your annotation. An Annotation Box will appear next to the highlight on the document.
You can edit your annotation at any time. To do so, click on the Annotation Box. A grey tab will appear above it. From the grey tab, click on the arrow to reveal a drop-down menu, and select Edit from this menu. This will reopen the Annotation Editor.
Select Edit from the drop-down menu on the grey tab to open reopen the Annotation Editor.
The drop-down menu also allows you to delete your annotations.
