Project Markup: What is it and how can I use it?

What is Markup?

Project Markup allows you to record feedback about project elements right within the VR environment and while your clients are actively looking at them. Draw directly on the project or leave text comments to highlight revisions and let your clients see them being applied in real time via a Collaborate session. With multiple pen and color options, providing feedback on design decisions is now easier than ever.

What’s New:

Customer feedback captured using Yulio’s popular markup tool is now available in one easily accessible report. The new markup report summarizes the feedback and provides one-click access to view text markups wherever they were captured in the project. This makes it easy for designers to quickly review and act on customer feedback captured in-situ during presentations and collaborate sessions.

Key Changes:

  • A new Markup tab has been added to the edit project page. This allows quick access to previous markups, the option to delete markups and the ability to add additional markups.
  • Project Settings have been moved to a new settings page (gear icon) in the top navigation bar. This is where you will still access project details, project permissions, and markup settings.
  • To make Markup more accessible, the feature is now enabled by default for all new projects (this can always be disabled per project via the Project Settings).

How do I mark up a scene in Yulio?

All Yulio users have the ability to mark up a project scene. Markup is currently available in browser mode on any computer, tablet or touchscreen but can be viewed in browser mode or in a VR headset.

Start off by selecting the VR project you would like to Mark Up from the VR Projects page.

For new projects, Markup will be on by default. For older projects, you will need to turn Markup on.

On the edit project page, select the Settings icon.

Click the Allow Project Markup toggle to turn Markup on. Then select the Close button.

Next, click the View in 360 icon to begin marking up your project.

In browser mode, you will notice a new Markup icon in the top right hand corner, click that to begin. Within the Markup tab, you can choose to draw directly on the project or leave text comments. 

To leave a text comment, click on the Markup icon and then select the text comment icon. From there, click anywhere in the scene to place the text comment in your project. Next, type directly in the text box and hit Save.

The Markup tab has multiple color and pen thickness options for you to explore. Draw directly on the project with your mouse or stylus to mark up your project.

Click the icon when you want to erase, change the color or thickness of your pen, move around your project, add text comments or delete your edits.

With no Save button, your project is ready to go. Send the VR project to anyone on your team with a Yulio seat or share your edits with a client via a Collaborate session.

Managing Your Markups

The new Markups tab has been added to the edit project page. Your new markup report summarizes project feedback and provides one-click access to view text comments wherever they were captured in the project. It also allows quick access to previous edits, the option to delete edits and the ability to add additional edits.

To access the Markups tab, navigate back to your edit project page and select the Markups tab.

Within the Markups tab, you are able to review edits, add additional edits, or delete edits. Click the Markup icon in the top right corner of the project window to add and delete edits.

On the right hand side, you will find your markup report. This provides a summary of all text comments across all scenes in your project.

If you click on the View button, you will be taken to the scene that the text comment is in. From there, you can review the comment, leave it as is, or delete it.

If you want to delete all edits, click on the Clear Scene icon. This will delete all markups and text comments from the scene.

Or, you can simply hide markups and text comments by switching the Allow Project Markup toggle to off. This can be done from the Project Settings.
