Coloring Annotations

How Coloring Works

Color can be set globally for all measurements and annotations or can be defined for each annotation type. Setting the global color will apply to all new annotations.

Annotations can be colored using one of the colors available in Trimble Connect for Browser’s 2D Viewer. The different available colors are shown on the right. To create an annotation with another color, simply choose the wanted color, and then create the annotation.

The last used color for each annotation tool is remembered and saved as a default.

You can also change the color of an already existing annotation, by selecting the annotation and changing the color. Colors are saved in Views.

Changing the color of an existing annotation does change the default color setting.

Set the Global Color for Measurements & Annotations

Setting the global color will apply to all new measurements and annotations.

To set the global color

  1. Open a document in Trimble Connect for Browser's 2D Viewer.

  2. Open the color selector located on the toolbar.

  3. Pick the desired color.

All annotations and measurements will be drawn in that color.

Set or Change the Color for Each Annotation Tool

If you want to override the global color, and set the color each annotation tool, you can do so through the annotation style menu.
