Making Annotations
 
An annotation is a special kind of text document that links to a highlight located on a primary document found in the project Table of Contents—you may also make annotations that link to highlights located on other annotations.
Making an Annotation on a Highlight:
  1. Click to select a highlight on an image document using the “hand” tool located on the left side of the document toolbar to open its highlight window—note you'll have to "check out" the document to access editing tools. (Simply use your cursor to click to select a text highlight on a text document to open its highlight window.)

  2. Click the “Add Annotation” button at the bottom of the highlight window.

  3. A new, blank text document will open next to the document you are editing—this document will not be a primary document, so it will not appear in the Table of Contents primary document manager.

  4. You can change the title of this annotation document like you would any other text document, and this will be reflected in the highlight window.

 

Making an Annotation on a Document using the Corner Document Icon:

  1. Click to select the top-left corner "document icon" tool to open the document highlight window.

  2. Click the “Add Annotation” button at the bottom of the highlight window.

  3. This annotation document will link to the entire text or image document.

Deleting Annotations and Links from a Highlight

  1. Select a highlight to open its highlight window; the video above demonstrates this on a text document—on an image document click to select a highlight using the “hand” tool located on the left-hand side of the document toolbar to open the highlight window (note you'll have to "check out" the document to access editing tools).

  2. Click the “x” button on the right-hand side of the tile of the annotation or link you’d like to delete from the highlight.
