What are Deleted Annotations, and what is this new crossed out icon on my toolbar?

When you receive a new draft and transfer your notes, if script content that had annotations was deleted as part of the rewrite, you may have some Deleted Annotations and a new icon will be added onto the Top Toolbar.

You'll first be made aware of any Deleted Annotations within the Note Transfer process.

After completing the Note Transfer, a pop-up will appear detailing how many Imported, Changed, and Deleted Annotations you have as a result of the transfer.

After reviewing, tap OK to view a detailed summary of your Deleted Annotations.

The Deleted Annotation summary is organized by page, and provides a view-only overview of what annotations were deleted.

To retrieve any of the Deleted Annotations, you'll have to toggle back to the previous draft, and copy / paste any annotations you need into the new draft.

NOTE: After performing a Note Transfer, you may also have a few attached notes. See on the right margin of the script above. These transparent sticky notes are notifications to let you know something you annotated within the script text has changed in the new draft.

After closing out of the summary, the Deleted Annotations icon can now be found on your Top Toolbar.

TIP: For Industry Pro users, when doing a Note Transfer, you may also want to check the box for ScriptationCompare. This feature will compare your two drafts of the script, and generate a scene-by-scene breakdown of all the text that's been added, deleted, and changed!
