Making Image Highlights
Highlights allow you to mark up, annotate and then link together image and text documents and annotations. The videos and text below detail multiple ways of creating highlights on image documents.
Creating an Image Highlight:
Select a highlight color using the drop-down menu at the upper-left corner of the image document window—you'll have to "check out" the document to access the menu and other editing tools.
Click to select one of the rectangle or circle shape icons in the middle of the toolbar at the top of the window.
Click, drag and release ("un-click") the shape to create a new highlight.
Using the "Segmented Line" Image-Highlighting Tool:
Click to select the segmented-line tool on the right-hand side of the toolbar at the top of the image document window.
"Single click" (click once) at multiple places/times to create the corners of a segmented-line-shaped highlight.
"Double click" "click twice) to complete the last corner of the new highlight.
