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!

Adding annotations

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:

  1. In edit mode, highlight the relevant text

  2. Click the … menu in the toolbar

  3. Click Add annotation

  4. Type in your annotation

  5. Optionally, click the 📎 paperclip icon to add a link reference

  6. 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:

  1. Hover over the annotation

  2. Click the … menu in the annotation

To edit an annotation:

  1. Click Edit annotation

  2. Make your changes

  3. Click Save

To delete an annotation:

  1. Click Delete annotation

  2. Click Delete
