    Annotation Properties
  5. One property to be aware of is the "Sharing" property, also called annotation scope. This setting determines how the annotation is shared on the page. The three settings are:

    • Public- All users will see the annoataion
    • Personal- Only the user who added the annoation will see it
    • Permanent- The annotation is permanently affixed to the page when exported, unless you have an override permission Annotation Scope
  6. When you are done with all changes to the page, click UPDATE on the upper right hand corner of the Viewer

NOTE: You must click "Apply" first to save the annotation specifically, and then "Update" to save the chages to the page/document
