When you are editing a specific annotation, there is a set of options you can use to configure it.

Start Time

You can set the start time ahead one second by clicking on the right arrow; back, by clicking on the left.  Click 'Start Time' to fine tune it down to the thousands of a second or a specific percentage in the video.

Duration

The duration of time that the annotation remains on screen. If Pause is set to Y, the duration of the annotation is the duration it is paused.

Link

What happens when a viewer clicks on the annotation. Detail here.

Pause

Set Pause:Y if you'd like the video to pause when it reaches this annotation.  Set Pause: N if not.
Note when you set Pause:Y, the duration of the annotation is the duration it is paused. Note: When Pause is set to Y, ensure Gate is set to N.

Gate

A gate is a point in the video that a viewer can not pass unless they interact with that annotation. This is used most often to ensure that someone takes a quiz or submits an email before continuing on in the video. Note: When Gate is set to Y, ensure Pause is set to N.

Display Rule

Used to display an annotation only under certain conditions (for example only for new viewers). You set the JavaScript Expression under which you'd like the annotation to display (ex/ viewer=='new'). You can pass in these JavaScript Expressions from an external system using the HapYak APIs or set it when a viewer clicks on another annotation in the Link option (ex/ viewer="new").

Add Class

Adds a specific CSS class to the project.  Used to custom style specific annotations. Note, you will need to reference this CSS class in a custom CSS URL that you add in the Configure pane of the project.

Styles

Change the background color and opacity.

Themes

Canned styles for the annotation.  Most often used to change the text color from white to black or vice versa (select "White" or "Black".)

Transitions

How the annotation appears and disappears from the screen.
