Annotations allow you to add a comment on a specific node. By default, the node is collapsed, and you must hover over the icon to see the comment. In Powerviz annotations, you’ll get multiple options to add a comment. Input types include text, links, images, and dynamic measures. Along with that, you can format each type by color, size, and effect.

  • Background fill : Use this to change the canvas background color.

  • Connector styling : This contains all the color and style formatting for the connector line.

  • Apply button : Use the apply button to save the changes.

  2. Now carefully select the arc where you want to place the annotation.

  3. Once clicked, the annotation editor pop-up will open.
