To verify any annotations have been applied to images when using cursors other than those used by the Annotations tool, please ensure the Always Show Annotations option is enabled. Otherwise, none of the modifications will be visible.
Go to the Annotations tool in the Metadata tool tab or in Cursor toolbar (far right) and select Always Show Annotations from the menu (a small checkmark will be visible when enabled).
Sketches made with the Annotations tool can be hidden from view, making it simple to add annotations to images without having to make copies or clones to remove them. When using the Annotations cursors, the annotations are displayed regardless of the setting. Thumbnails in the browser are not updated with annotations when applied. However, as an indicator, a small pencil icon with a line drawing is visible in the bottom-right corner of thumbnails.
- Go to the Annotations tool. Alternatively, go to the Cursor group in the Cursor toolbar (far right) and click and hold. The Cursor group opens.
- Remove the checkmark next to Always Show Annotations to disable the display of the annotations. When the Draw or Erase Annotations cursors are selected, any annotations made will be displayed anyway. Only when selecting another un-related cursor, the sketches will be hidden from all images.
- To view the annotations again, replace the checkmark.
