In addition to the built-in markup tools, markups can be customized to fit the way you work. Jim demonstrates how to change the properties of the built-in markup tools to change their look, and then shows you how to save those customizations. Jim also demonstrates how to import custom tools created on the desktop software so that iPad app contains the same tools you use on the desktop.
