Using GroupDocs.Annotation Cloud SDK for Ruby, you can work with diverse types of annotations. The two basic types are; Text Annotations and Figure Annotations. While using text-based annotation, you can add text comments to selected text; highlight which text should be replaced with what, hide confidential text using text redaction, highlight text with strikethroughs/underlines, and add sticky notes with rich text. While working with figure annotations, you can add notes to an area highlighted with a rectangle (Area Annotation), add notes to any point in the document (Point Annotation), hide confidential parts of an image or text (Area Redaction), draw freehand lines and shapes (Polyline), arrows pointing to an object (Pointer/Arrow), create text-based watermark overlays (Watermark), and measure the distance between any objects in a document (Distance Annotation).
