Annotate in the Info panel

Expression Studio 2.0

Microsoft Expression Media uses the Info panel to give you an easy way to quickly review all the properties and metadata of an image. You can also use the Info panel to assign annotations to a single item or to a selection of media items.

Expression Media has an auto-completion feature that assists you in typing annotation terms. For example, if you type "S", Expression Media completes the term with the nearest term from the field's vocabulary that starts with "S".

If a word is auto-completed, press the RETURN key to assign it as the term. Or, you can press the TAB key to apply the existing term and advance to the next field.
