What is Octiv Annotations:

Markups made on a PDF such as text, drawings, shapes, images, or comments

Follow these steps to annotate a PDF:

  1. Upload the file to the asset library
  2. Drag the file to the table of contents
  3. Select the gear icon next to the page name
  4. Select Annotate – this will reload the page and you will see a new editor appear atop the document
  5. Click on the pencil icon to activate the annotations mode
    • Your document will open in full-screen view to give you more space to annotate
    • Use the annotate options on the left to markup your drawing
    • Once you are done click on the x icon to exit out (the annotations will save on their own)
  6. After exiting you will see a banner saying that the page is reloading
  7. You will see the annotations you made on the embedded pdf
  8. Download your document (select PDF download) and your annotations will be included in the full document download
