Annotation Toolbar

Annotations must be unlocked for everyone, this includes the Host/Co-Host.  For the Host, this is done in the Pane 2 Document or Presentation menu by clicking Turn on Annotations.  You can find out more about this by visiting Pane 2:  Available Tools.

Once annotations are turned on in Pane 2 (the host will see the Annotation Toolbar in Pane 2), the Host or Co-Host will need to grant permission for the rest of the attendees.  You can find more information on how this is done by visiting Pane 2:  Available Tools.

1. Once the Annotations are turned on, the user will click the Insert Equation Tool MathToolIcon.jpg on the Annotation Toolbar.
