What is Annotation?

Annotation is the process of marking words or writing short notes or definitions on a document while reading it. Annotation makes a document more interactive. Once the document is annotated you know exactly what to look for in it therefore you will not waste anytime in going through the whole document again. Also, if you have passed on the document to your colleague, even he/she will know what to look for in it.

Globodox allows you to do the same with electronic documents, just as you would annotate documents in real life. Using annotation you can highlight and mark important text in your documents. You can add sticky notes and stamps to your documents.

You can do the following using the Annotation toolbar in Globodox...

Underline or circle important text
Draw a rectangle
Highlight certain text in the document
Add sticky notes to the documents.
Hide confidential text.
Insert stamps on the documents.
Bookmark the document.
