You might try adding a new layer. Then use the Pencil tool (next down from the Pen tool). That works more like a traditional drawing tool. You can double-click on the tool to choose settings. I have no idea whether it would work with a Wacom tablet (which I've never used).
Hi Steve, thanks for the reply.
Sorry I meant to say Pencil tool in my original message, unfortunately it's a vector Pencil tool and is not a natural way of making quick annotations/sketches.
I thought there might be a 3rd party tool to scribble over my layouts which would be a quick way for me to develop my InDesign page designs. I think Powerpoint has that option! Oh well..
Check this plugin that allows you make text & drawing notes and save it into the InDesign/InCopy document.
PowerNotes is a plugin for Adobe InDesign and Adobe InCopy that allows you to perform complex instructions on a document, using drawings and notes. This will free users from having to meet with their collaborators to explain modifications. Delays and loops will be erased from the workflow.
Cool thanks! Looks useful!
