Once your documents are added, they will appear in the Documents section of the Media Bar.

Click on your arrow to expand and show pages.


If you have added *.tif, *.jpg or *.png files, color pages show up as blue.

If you do not already see the Viewer pane, double-clicking on a document page will launch it.


Selecting Annotate/Present from the Workflow Ribbon will give the best layout to view documents.

Viewing Documents
  • Click on a document and then select Annotate/Present in the Workflow Ribbon.


  • Use the toolbar to mark-up or annotate your documents. You can send any annotation to Presentation Mode without saving it.


  • Or Save them  – this allows you to prepare your annotations (mark-ups or treatments) in advance. OnCue does not mark on the original document nor does it save a secondary document (.jpg or .bmp) but saves a “script” with instructions. You can update your annotations if you want to change them.


  • When you save your annotation, and it is shown underneath the original page with a new ID number. Example: An annotation for 1.2 (ID.page) is saved as 1.2.1. That is the first annotation for page 2 of document 1.

Save Annotations (Ctrl + S) is found in the Viewer toolbar

Once the documents have been added to OnCue and annotated to your satisfaction and saved, they can be added to Notebooks or Presentations – the processes for which are discussed in depth in those sections.


Double-clicking on an annotation, deletes it. Hitting “E” erases them all.
