One of the best tools for marking up a document is the text tool. This tool allows you to insert text annotations anywhere on the document. For example, if you are a teacher grading a student's assignment, you may want to add some comments to illustrate changes or corrections that need to be made.
There are several preset choices in the Text Toolbox Sidebar. However, you may want to personalize your default text setting. For example, the text on most of the Toolbox presets is the Arial font with a font color of black. You might want a different color so that your comment stands out. Additionally, you might favor a different font. Here is how to do it:
Even though this will be your default setting, you can still change an individual text box. With the text tool selected, click on the text box you wish to change. Modify the settings that you want to change. Note that this will not change your default settings. The text tool reverts back to them when you create a new comment.
You might want to save your new default settings to the text toolbox. Should you use one of the other presets for annotating, you can apply your default settings again very quickly. Open the toolbox and click on the green plus sign.
You will get a Configure tool dialog box where you can view a sample and make any additional modifications. Clicking OK will save this configuration to the text toolbox, represented by an icon.
Clicking on the icon will automatically change the settings in the text options toolbar back to your default. You can also add this text tool setting to your favorites. Additionally, if you want to edit the settings, just select it in the toolbox and click on the edit button to get the Configure tool dialog box again. You can also click on the red minus sign to delete it.
Don't forget: if you have a text annotation that you use repeatedly, you can save that annotation as a custom
stamp. That can save you a lot of typing!
