Text Comments:

The most straightforward comments to create are text comments. Great for quickly jotting down thoughts.  

How to use: Click the Comment tool > Text Comment, you can either anchor a comment to a static point on the page by clicking on any part of the page or by simply clicking and dragging over a passage of text on the page.  

Things to keep in mind: There is a Voice Typing button to the right of the comment box, this allows you to toggle between standard keyboard input and transcribing your voice into a Text Comment. This can be a very useful assistive tool for students that have trouble with writing or typing out answers and notes. 

You are able to embed hyperlinks into Text Comments to reference external sites and resources.

If you find that you are not able to select text on the page, please see our article on the OCR tool
