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.
