Images in a document may be annotated with user-generated information specific to that instance of the image in that document. To annotate an image, double-click on an image in the text field to open the annotation dialog (tap and hold on tablet/mobile), then use the tools to add text, writing or drawn elements to the image.
- The original image (located in the Gallery) is unaffected.
- Image annotations appear on PDF exports.
- Image annotations are copied when a document is copied.
Annotations are made using the Sketcher, already covered in the Sketching. The only difference with an annotation is that there is a background base image rather than a blank canvas. So, a range of drawing and text addition tools are available in the left side of the sketcher window, and to the right, settings can be applied to any objects in the sketch/annotation when selected. Sketching or annotation can be done on a tablet using fingertip tap, swipe and draw gestures, or using a computer mouse.
Frequently used figures or fragments of sketches can be added from the saved sketches bar on the far right of the sketcher, and you can even add and adjust existing images from the top level folder of your image gallery, just as you can when Sketching a new image with the sketch tool. Secondary images added from the gallery or saved sketches bar as annotations do not affect the original image.
