Annotate Pages

You have the ability to leave annotations, or notes on documents in the Paperless Press tool. The annotations "float" above the page so they do not change the original document. They can be optionally hidden or shown permanently burned on the document.

Note, to annotate pages in Paperless Press, the document must be in .TIF file format. Learn more about Converting to .TIF
