Use this feature to add handy private 'post-it' notes to your
pages that only your co-authors can see.
Adding content to your website is often subject to discussions
prior to it actually being published. To aid this, many components
directly related to content can be annotated.
The annotate feature allows authors to add "sticky notes"
on pages in the author environment with comments and/or questions
for future consideration. (Viewers can see these comments, but not
change them.) Most components allow annotations.
- The annotation can be 'minimized' to a small square by clicking
the underscore in the header. Note that this may make it more
difficult for future authors to see.
- A variety of basic colors are provided: yellow, orange,
fuchsia, violet, turquoise and green. Click the tiny rainbow circle
in the header to cycle through them.
- A simple sketch tool is also provided. Click the squiggle mark
in the header to activate it.
The identity of the author who created the original note is
indicated in the footer line of the annotation, as well as the
date. Subsequent authors can edit the same annotation (the
footer will be updated), or create a new annotation for the same
Annotations are included in any copy, cut or delete actions
carried out on the paragraph to which they are attached; for copy
or cut actions, the annotation (and related sketches) will retain
its position in relation to the original component.
Use our handy tool to compile a list of all of your annotated
pages with their annotations.
