Overview of markup options on the toolbar

The toolbar appears automatically when you have a plan sheet open in the canvas view.

Select the markup tool to be presented with the following options:

  1. Highlight: allows you to highlight content in the plan by drawing a colorful box around it. The highlight color can be customized.

  2. Cloud: allows you to create a cloud outline, in any color, on the plan sheet.

  3. Call: allows you to add a text bubble to your plan details to draw attention to a specific item. The bubble color and font size can be changed.

  4. Dimension Line: allows you to add a visual reference of a linear distance.

  5. Text Box: allows you to add a simple text box for notes, anywhere on the plan sheet. Font size and color can be customized.

  6. Legend - allows you to place a color-coded takeoff legend anywhere on the plan sheet by drawing a rectangular shape on the plan. The plan legend will show the main measurement type for all takeoffs on that particular page, but you can toggle the visibility of your quantities.

*Edit your markups by selecting them using the “Edit” tool. *
