Enhancements in the annotation layer

The time has come to enhance the annotation tool of beegis.

We now have two tools, one to create and one to destroy:

1) the annotation tool has been enhanced for tablet pen usage.

The width and transparency are no longer sliders, but predefined combos. Less freedom sometimes can lead to better productivity. :)

The properties panel gives the possibility to quickly remove the last inserted stroke, without the need to change the tool.

Anyway, sometimes one needs to remove a stroke inserted earlier, so the need for an annotation remove tool grew.

2) the annotation remove tool

Since we are sopposing to be on the field with a table and it is not easy to pick exactly the stroke we want to remove, the annotation remove tool is a line tool.

That means that you just drag to draw a line (the remove tool draws a red line) and all the intersacting annotations will be removed:

in this case the line is going to remove the M and the upper orange line.

Indeed! :)
