In our PDF Editor’s toolbar, next to the Text button, there is a drop-down menu with different shape annotations. Choose a desired shape and drag the mouse cursor in the preferred direction. For example, if you want to draw an ellipse annotation, the moving of your cursor should resemble the look of the ellipse.

Other than that, you can draw lines, polylines, arrows, rectangles, clouds, and polygon annotations.
