The number one feature that users request for the OpenAnnotate product is the ability to highlight text or to strikethrough text while annotating. TSG is excited to announce that we have started development of these two highly requested features.
With the pending EOL of PDF Annotation Services for Documentum, we have been bolstering the feature set of our OpenAnnotate product to give existing EMC customers a viable replacement for PDF Annotation Services. As we have said in the past, OpenAnnotate was designed from the beginning to be a lightweight web-based annotation tool. This means that it does not require any additional software to be installed in order to be able to annotate documents. Because of this, the initial version of OpenAnnotate only supported annotating using sticky notes, lines, arrows, circles, and rectangles. Now that clients are starting to migrate off of PDF Annotation Services, we are excited to announce that TSG is developing the ability to create highlight, strikethrough, and insert text annotations using OpenAnnotate. Users will now have the ability to highlight snippets of text for comments, or the ability to strikethrough a sentence that should be removed.
In addition to the above enhancements, the following new features are under development as well:
- Annotations got you feeling blue? Annotate with color! Annotations such as rectangles, circles, and lines can now be drawn with different colors.
- Revamped UI – The interface has been revamped to put the tools for annotating front and center
Look for these exciting new features in the next release of OpenAnnotate… coming soon!
