Annotate any PDF document in your binder, whether it’s a script, piano vocal score or any other document you've uploaded.* Write like you would on paper using an Apple Pencil, stylus of your choice, or even your finger. All annotations are personal to you and no one else in your production can see them unless you've shared your notes.

Annotation tools

Here’s the tools that are available to you:

  1. Text highlighter (your PDF needs to include readable text for this to work): Select your text to highlight it.

  2. Free hand highlighter: Drag your Pencil, stylus, or finger over the text to highlight it.

  3. Free hand pen: Write notes or notate blocking on your document

  4. Text tool: Type notes directly on the script with your keyboard
