    Yes, annotating published campaigns (like adding sticky notes to a physical book), would make them much easier to run!

    I want to 3rd this suggestion.  I do some prep from DND beyond but I run games from my book because the ability to both highlight and add notes.

    Absolutely.

    Annotations, highlighting, underlining and adding pop up boxes.

    This can include a link to a source book and page nr.

    Case in point: Dungeon of the Mad Mage - which has no text to read - I would like to be able to write my own description to read.

    This is one of those features that I feel like no one would ever upvote but nearly every single DM would use once they had it available.

    What DM adventure book doesn't look like this?

    When I DM, I have both my book open, and my notes, and my laptop with the exact same page open so that I can quickly click through content from the adventure, such as monsters from the indexes. This feature would combine all of that into one thing, decluttering my setup and streamlining my experience, which after all, is what dnd beyond is all about.

    Furthermore! The way I consume and pre-proccess adventures would be much more convenient if I could do it online, from my tablet or laptop.

    But wait there is more! I feel like simply integrating an already established tool like https://web.hypothes.is/ would be pretty easy. You can actually already use this with dnd beyond, but there is no mobile/tablet support which isn't awesome. Also, there is only one color for highlighting, which clearly, is a total showstopper.

    MAKE THIS HAPPEN! (....please)

    Guys there are spaces for private and for public DM notes in the Masters subscription campaign screens.

    Did you mean this or something else entirely?

    Very different.  I’m talking highlights and comments in the source books. Think google docs comments. Like highlight the parts I want to remember and leave notes in the margins of the adventure I’m using.

    Hypothesis works in any browser, including mobile/tablet.  There is certainly more we could do to make it even better.  But it *does* work already! :)

    We're happy to help.

    Dan Whaley I'm intrigued and may give that a try but that's a 3rd party browser extension versus DDB having native annotation/note taking tool.
