Best practices: Markup tools

Remember these best practices when using Whiteboard markup tools:

  • When first creating a text markup, participants cannot see the text unless the creator clicks outside the text box. When editing an existing markup, the change is seen immediately.
  • You can edit a text box, including wording and formatting, after it has been created by double-clicking the text box.
  • When changing colors, the change does not affect the items already on the Whiteboard.
  • Markup changes remain on the Whiteboard until they are erased or cleared, or the event session is ended.
  • Many markup tools are anonymous. When enabling multiple participants to use the markup tools, you may not know who the creator of a particular piece of content is. You may want to identify separate areas for each participant to work based on the content.
