Mark up. Share. Repeat.
Markup lets you draw on any webpage with a variety of tools to express your thoughts, make a point, or share ideas. Once you Get Markup, you can draw any time by clicking your bookmarklet or using your native browser extension. When the toolbar loads, start drawing. Publish to share your thoughts with others.
There are several ways you can install Markup. The easiest way is to drag the bookmarklet below to your bookmarks bar.

The Magic Marker tool is Markup’s swiss army knife; use it to draw freeform lines, or — with just a little practice — create any of the other shapes with it. Draw a Box or a Circle, and it’ll transform into a geometrically correct one; draw a Line, and it’ll straighten out. You can even make arrows by drawing a straight line, and hooking back at one end like a check mark.
Use the Box tool to draw a rectangular outline. To use: click-and-hold at one corner, then drag diagonally to the opposite corner, and release.
Use the Circle tool to draw an elliptical outline. To use: click-and-hold at one corner, then drag diagonally to the opposite corner, and release. (Imagine that you’re using the Box tool to draw an invisible box that the circle squeezes into.)
Use the Line tool to draw a straight line. To use: click-and-hold where the line should start, drag to where it should end, and release.
The Arrow tool works like the Line: click-and-hold where the tail should start, drag to where arrow should point, and release.
The Text tool has two slight variations: In the first, just click anywhere on the page and start typing. In the second, click-and-drag a box (just like with the Box tool), and then start typing. Press [escape] when you’re done. The first variation is best for just a few words, while the second is better for longer texts, or when the background page is visually busy.
You can change the Color that you’re marking in at any time by first making sure you don’t have anything selected, and then choosing a color in the toolbar. You can also change the Color of a single mark by first clicking on the mark to select it, and then choosing a new color.
Use the Size selector to change the line thickness of marks, or to change the size of Text. You can choose a Size for your next mark by first making sure you don’t have anything selected, and then choosing a size in the toolbar. You can also change the size of a single mark by first clicking on the mark to select it, and then adjusting its size in the toolbar.
To move a mark around on the page, just click-and-drag it to wherever you want it. You can perform either one of these actions on more than one mark at the same time by holding down the [shift] key while clicking on them to select more than one. To deselect mark(s), just click in empty space.
To delete a mark, first click on it to select it, then press the [delete] or [backspace] key on your keyboard.
Markup has convenient keyboard shortcuts to ease the process of marking up, including [ctrl+z] / [cmd+z] and many others. Most of them will feel familiar to those who’ve used popular graphics software. You may view the full list of keyboard shortcuts any time you’re using Markup by pressing [shift+?] on your keyboard.
