More ver­sa­tile Markup tools

Go be­yond the ab­so­lute ba­sics with new an­no­ta­tion ca­pa­bil­i­ties

Mac Format - - FEATURE / IOS 12 SUPERGUIDE -

The abil­ity to mark up docs and im­ages in any app where the Share sheet is avail­able is im­mensely use­ful, but the tools were a lit­tle lack­ing in op­tions – un­til now!

1 Line thick­ness

Af­ter se­lect­ing one of the three draw­ing tools, tap on it a sec­ond time to re­veal new op­tions. There are five line thick­nesses and an opac­ity slider.

2 Opac­ity re­minder

Some­times you’ll see a tiny num­ber dis­played at the bot­tom of the se­lected tool’s graphic. That’s shown only when the tool is set to draw semi-trans­par­ent lines, re­mind­ing you to change that set­ting if it’s not what you want.

3 More colours!

Do the an­no­ta­tion colours blend in with your doc­u­ment, or maybe you want some­thing that pops a bit more? You’re no longer lim­ited to six colour pre­sets. Tap the mul­ti­colour swatch to re­veal a grid of 120 hues to choose from.
