Add text markup to a Drawing from a Mobile device

You can add a markup to a project plan from your mobile device while creating or reacting to a post.

  1. Tap the “...” in the bottom right corner when creating a post, or the “+” icon when reacting to a post.

  2. Choose Drawing Markup.

  4. Choose the Aa icon from the available tools at the bottom of the drawing. Then type directly on the drawing, resize and position the text exactly where you want it, and choose what color it appears, if you'd like. Type specific dimensions or call out additional job instructions, for example.
