How do I view and manage annotations in my media in Canvas Studio?

If you have added annotations to your media in Canvas Studio, you can view, edit, and delete annotations. Annotations include a headline and text, and you can also add links and hyperlinks. When viewers play the annotated media, the media pauses and annotations display.


  • You can add and edit annotations in Canvas Studio. Annotations cannot be added from the Studio tool in Canvas.
  • You can only add annotations to your media. You can add time stamped comments to media that is shared with you.
