  • (2020-07-05) Zubayer Shafi: Excellent web app. It works on all web pages as it should. However, for my particular usage, I open pdf files on the browser and would like annotate to work on that too.
  • (2019-09-19) Christopher Williams: I have been using Annotate for several years. Frankly, it is one of two services without which I simply could not operate. Specially to the instructors, it seamlessly cuts down my huge task of annotation on different websites. Here's to continued success!

    when I toggle the annotation button, it no longer shows the annotation bar. Am I missing something?
  • (2020-09-09, v:5.27) Maureen Sikora: Annotating on Google slide and presenting it
    I used the annotation tool and was able to annotate on a google slide only if it was not in present mode. After I annotated, and clicked on present mode, it wasn't there. However, clicking out of present mode it was there. So I clicked on the camera icon to copy to present slide, which it said it couldn't do. Then I used the camera icon and pasted it to the slide, and that was successful and was now visible in present mode. However, after the image was pasted onto the slide, the eraser in the tool bar could no longer erase the image since it was an image and not the actual annotation. How can we make it so that : 1. I could annotate directly onto a blank slide in present mode AND use the eraser to fix any mistakes on that annotation while in present mode?
