Text Markups

Overview

Text markups are used to write on object surfaces to add information to a View.

    • The text cannot be edited after creation.

    • The placement of the text box can be moved after creation, but the location of the arrow cannot be changed after creation.

    • Text markup color can be changed after creation.

    • The text will be moved, and an arrow indicates where the text was first created.
