  • Double-click on the Annotation attribute under the Description heading. A text box will appear for entering some text (The annotation marker is only visible when a patch is unlocked).
  • When you enter the text, an annotation marker will appear in the upper right-hand corner of the selected object.

  • When you move the mouse over the object you have annotated, your text will be shown in the patchers Clue Window, the Clue Window will change color to indicate that the text refers to an annotation you've made.


Removing an annotation from an object

  • Select an object and open its Inspector.
  • Double-click in the Value column for the Annotation attribute. Remove the text. After you do so the annotation marker will disappear from the selected object.
