  • Font: allows you to change the text's font, size, color, and alignment.
  • Cancel/Done: tap the "x" to exit the Typewriter With Today's Date mode before starting, or the check-mark to finish.
 

The editing ribbon for the Typewriter With Today's Date tool has seven buttons:​
 

  • Edit: allows you to edit the text box's contents.
  • Options: allows you to change the text's color and opacity.
  • Font: allows you to modify the text's font, size, color, and alignment.
  • Resize: allows you to resize and/or rotate the annotation.

Tips When Using the Typewriter With Today's Date Tool

​The red grabbers at either side of the text box allow you to stretch the area occupied by the text for better formatting.

To rotate a Typewriter With Today's Date annotation, place two fingers inside the flashing blue box and perform a twisting gesture. You may also need to be sufficiently zoomed-in for this gesture to work. During a rotation, you can also easily drag and reposition the markup on your page.
