Annotations can be used to add supplementary information and references to a post. This way, your Slab posts can still maintain helpful details without detracting from the main ideas or overall objective of your post!
Say you want to add a reference to the source that inspired a specific section of your post. Or perhaps you want to add more context to your post, but it doesn't quite belong in the post body.
Those are just a few examples, but this is where annotations can really shine!
To add an annotation:
In edit mode, highlight the relevant text
Click the … menu in the toolbar
Click Add annotation
Type in your annotation
Optionally, click the 📎 paperclip icon to add a link reference
Click Annotate button
Now you've added the annotation. Normally, the annotation is hidden away. You can hover over the blue annotation icon to reveal the underlined annotated text and annotation.
Editing and deleting annotations
Annotations can be edited or deleted in both edit and read mode by anyone on your team:
Hover over the annotation
Click the … menu in the annotation
To edit an annotation:
Click Edit annotation
Make your changes
To delete an annotation:
Click Delete annotation
