- Click the check () to end the drawing.
- (Measurements can be saved only as annotations) Enter a Title and Description and click CREATE.
- Click the annotation symbol
- Find the annotation at the left bottom of the window.
- Select the annotation to edit
- Toggle on the Edit function (at the bottom right of the window).
- Click the “plus” sign to create more corners or vertices.
- To remove a vertex, drag the dot of the vertex on top of another dot.
- Wait until a red halo appears around the selected vertex then release the mouse button.
- (For polygons) Move the whole polygon by clicking the multi-directional arrow in the center and dragging it.
