Annotate Tool

The annotation tool is available in multiple editors. It can be used to add notes to e.g. 3D objects or node setups.

El anotation tool puede ser activada en la barra de herramientas en el lado izquierdo. Tiene un par de sub-herramientas enumeradas a continuación.


Draw free-hand strokes in the main area.

Annotate Line

Click and drag to create a line. Optionally, you can select the arrow style for the start and end of the line.

Annotate Polygon

Click multiple times to create multiple connected lines. The current polygon is finished when Esc is pressed.

Style Start, End

The decoration to use at the beginning or end of the line segment. This can be used for example to create arrows to point out specific details in a scene.

Annotate Eraser

Click and drag to remove lines. The eraser has a Radius setting found in Tool Settings ‣ Eraser.

Onion Skin

Shows a ghosted image of strokes made in frames before and after the current frame. Onion skinning only works in the 3D Viewport and Sequencer. See the Grease Pencil documentation for an explanation of Onion Skinning.

Stabilize Stroke

Helps to reduce jitter of the strokes while drawing by delaying and correcting the location of points.


Minimum distance from the last point before the stroke continues.


A smooth factor, where higher values result in smoother strokes but the drawing sensation feels like as if you were pulling the stroke.

3D Editor

When creating new annotations in the 3D Viewport, there is one tool setting.


La opción Placement determina dónde se dibuja la línea en el espacio 3D.

3D Cursor

Draw on an imaginary plane that goes through the 3D cursor and is aligned to your view.


Draw in screen space instead of in 3D space. That means, that the line will stay on the same position in the screen, even when the camera moves or rotates.


Proyecte la línea en la superficie debajo del ratón.

Editores 2D

En editores 2D, la opción Placement no existe. Cuando la herramienta de anotación está habilitada, la configuración para administrar varias capas se puede encontrar en Tool ‣ Active Tool en la barra lateral derecha.
