The Markup Menu
To add markup to your music, select the Markup menu button in the top toolbar on larger screen devices, or from the Options menu on smaller screen devices.
From here you can choose to add Text, Pen, or Highlighter marks to your music. Or, you can choose to delete or hide the markups that are already there.
Each tool also has its own sub-menu that allows you to alter that tool's markings for a given piece. Switching tools and their properties will automatically activate the tool.
When you are finished using any markup tool, close the menu by pressing red "X" in the upper right or left hand corner.
To add a text comment to a piece of music you are working with, select "Text Comments" in the markup menu. Your sheet music will now appear "highlighted." Tap on the page where you would like the comment to appear.
After you add your text comment, a text editor window will display. For a new text comment, tap inside the box, and the keyboard will appear. The editor window allows you to select a font, size, and color.
To edit a comment that already exists, tap it quickly and the editor window will display. You can also delete a comment using the editor window by highlighting all text and selecting "Delete" from the keyboard.
Once your text is added to the page, you may hold your finger on it for a few seconds to enable dragging functionality so you can re-position it.
From the markup menu you can change the tool to highlighter. When drawing with a highlighter, the mark made will be see-through, and the music on the page (and other markups) will be visible through the mark.
When using the highlighter you can choose the size of the line and the color. There is also an eraser option that you can select at the end of the color list. Anywhere you touch on the page will be highlighted with the color and size that you selected.
From the markup menu you can change the tool to pen. When drawing with a pen, the mark made will be solid, and will write over the music on the page.
When using a pen you can choose the size of the line and the color. There is also an eraser option that you can select at the end of the color list. Anywhere you touch on the page will be marked with the color and size that you selected.
