Add text, images, TeX commands, and buttons that perform an action to your model to help others better understand the model. For an overview of how to create these types of annotations, see Describe Models Using Annotations.

Examples and How To

Describe Models Using Annotations

To help others to understand a model, add visual elements, such as descriptive text, images, or buttons that perform an action such as open a link.

Show or Hide Annotations

By converting an annotation to markup, you can control whether to hide or display it.

Add an Annotation Callback

Associate a callback with an annotation for when you load, delete, or click an annotation.
