Drawing markup (arrows, circles, and ellipses) in the viewing area is another way to indicate an area of your model that’s important to analyze. Similar to pins, when you save the markup, a snapshot is automatically created that includes your markup and an optional comment. You must add this snapshot to a story if you want others to be able to collaborate on your markup. A simple way to understand the difference between markup and pins, is to know that markup drawings are 2D and do not move with your model. Pins are 3D and do move with your model.
- To turn on the markup tools, click Add Markup .
Note: If Add Markup is inactive, simply click the background. Doing so takes you out of the snapshot you were in.
- Use the following markup tools to start drawing:
- To draw an ellipse, drag to draw.
- To draw a circle, hold Shift as you drag to draw.
- To resize markup, select it and then drag the sizing points. To maintain a circle, hold Shift while dragging.
- To move markup, drag it to a new location.
- To delete markup, select the markup and then press Delete.
- Add a description to the comment card, and click Save Markup.
A snapshot is automatically added to the Snapshots panel, and the markup tools turn off.
- If you want to delete your markup, you can delete the snapshot that’s associated with the markup.
Note: Currently, once your markup is saved to a snapshot, you can’t add additional markup or delete individual markup. You must do this prior to saving markup.
