Markup

Overview

The Markup feature provides the ability to enter text, lines, or symbols on the stage for notation. You can create a single markup, or make multiple entries on the same page. The markup notation will be saved to the Markup Manager library where each can be managed individually.

To access Markup tools, click the pencil icon in the viewport. The markup tools will replace the camera visor controls.
