I used the Annotate tool to make some annotations in the 3D viewport.

enter image description here

I would like to edit, hide or remove them, but I can't find the annotate layers editor.

  • $\begingroup$ Asking and answering my own question because I've spent minutes looking for it in the scene / viewport / whatnot settings and in the annotate tool settings, to no avail. So I figured it could help somebody as a Q&A. $\endgroup$ – Nicola Sap Jan 8 at 18:51

Selecting again the Annotate tool will display a menu in the header. By default an annotation layer called "Note" is used.

From that menu, the layer visibility can be toggled, as well as adding / removing layers, and changing some little things like the color and the thickness.

enter image description here

Note: if the header is hidden, it can be displayed again using the little downwards arrow at the top margin of the 3D window.

Edit: ᴊᴀᴄʜʏᴍ ᴍɪᴄʜᴀʟ made me realize that there is another, more natural, place where the menu can be found! The 3D viewport's sidebar (aka "the N menu"), under View > Annotations

    $\begingroup$ Just to add - it is always accesible through Sidebar > View > Annotations no matter which tool is selected :). $\endgroup$ – Jachym Michal Jan 8 at 20:18
  • $\begingroup$ @ᴊᴀᴄʜʏᴍᴍɪᴄʜᴀʟ I believe you should post your comment as an answer. I'd accept that as it's clearly the most natural place to look for that feature. $\endgroup$ – Nicola Sap Jan 10 at 9:34

Another person described how to hide them, but to edit/remove parts you can hold LMB on the annotate widget and select the eraser tool.
