1. What is annotation and how do I make annotations on a card image?
Annotation is basically a note of explanation or a comment added to a specific detail of your sketch. So when you include these sketches in your techpack, the manufacturers can understand your exact design requirements and develop high-quality products.
First, upload an image inside the Image & Annotations Tab of your card.
Then click or drag lines over specific details of your sketch and a corresponding callout field will appear on the right. Add and manage all your annotation comments here in this list.
|NOTE: You can also add your annotations by using the shortcut of (#) referencing in annotations. When you click # in the annotations, the list of all the cards name present in all the sections appears from where you can select and that would appear as your annotation comment. This will save you time and keep the data uniform throughout.|
2. How to edit, reorder or delete annotations
To edit a comment click on the text in the callout list.
To reorder your callout list, click and hold on to the icon and drag to reorder the list as desired. The callout will be automatically renumbered according to its new place in the list.
Click on icon to delete a callout and its corresponding annotation line in the sketch.
To readjust the annotation line simply drag one of its ends.
3. How to replace the card image
Very often during the design development process the sketches and their details get revised.
To update your card images without losing its annotations, click on the option icon and use the Upload/switch image option.
And if you'd like to remove the card image completely use the delete option.
4. How to preview annotated images and their callouts in the PDF
To preview how your annotated images and their callout comments will look inside a techpack PDF, click on the DOC VIEW button located on the top-navigation bar and scroll down the respective PDF document where the card appears.
