Editing Image Highlights
DM 2.0 includes an array of image-highlight editing tools that allow you to change the title, color, size and location of image highlights.
Changing the text of a Highlight Title:
1. Open the link window of a highlight by clicking on the highlight
2. Double click on the text of the title to select it
3. Type in new text to customize the title
4. Wait a beat for the new title to save
5. Close the highlight window by clicking on the "x" icon in the right of the window.
Changing the Color of an Image Highlight:
Click to select the "eye-dropper" shaped color-dropper on the right-hand side of the toolbar at the top of the image document window—you'll have to "check out" the document to access the toolbar of editing tools.
Select a new highlight color using the drop-down menu at the upper-left corner of the window.
Click to select a highlight to change its color to the new selected color.
Resizing, Relocating and Deleting an Image Highlight:
Click to select the "four-corners" highlight-resizing-and-moving tool on the left-hand side of the toolbar at the top of the image document window.
Click to select a highlight to begin resizing or moving it.
Click and drag corners to resize the highlight.
Click and drag any of its lines to move the highlight.
Click the topmost center handle to rotate the highlight
Alternatively, click the trash-can shaped “Remove Highlight” button on the right-hand side of the toolbar at the top of the document window, and you will be asked to confirm the highlight deletion.
Deleting Annotations and Links from a Highlight:
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).
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.
