Annotation tools

This pane is used to configure your annotating toolbar.

There are five buttons (Add, Edit, Remove, Move Up, Move Down) and a list box (which lists the contents of the current annotating toolbar) which are used to configure the toolbar.

If you need to add some tool button on the toolbar click on the Add button. You can choose the Name, the Type and the Appearance of the created tool.


Please remember that annotation tools in Okular are highly configurable. For example, you can have two buttons of the same tool but with different color. Do not hesitate to experiment in choosing the button set that is exactly tailored to your workflow.

Click on some item in the list box then click on the corresponding button at the right part of the page to edit, remove, move up or move down the item. The keyboard shortcut of the tool (keys from 1 to 9) depends on its position in the list of annotating toolbar.
