  1. Improve the PDF annotation experience on iOS

    -updated title -

    The annotation / editing toolbar used to be blue, movable, and convenient. Now it looks like it came straight out of Windows 95 and has very limited functionality; e.g. you can no longer create two parallel pens and switch between them. Especially on the iPad Pro this is a huge loss and I don't see how this is a change for the better. Please bring the modern toolbar back!

      We hear the feedback and working hard to address it and improve our PDF annotation editing experience

      We’ve released 2 updates to the app since we made the change in tech for editing PDFs.
      Fixes in these updates include:
      -Saving pen style preferences

      Coming in the next few days are:

      The team is working hard to address the other feedback and we will be releasing updates frequently.

      • Drawing feature for Office app for iPad

        iPad 用 Office アプリの描画機能について

        Drawing feature for Office app for iPad
        ***************
        ■Description(内容):
        以前まで、iPad 用 Office アプリでは閲覧権限のファイルに対して描画を行い、変更内容を保存する時に新しくファイルを作ることで保存できたが、現在は閲覧権限の Office ファイルに対しては描画ができず、ファイルを複製してから描画を行う必要があり不便に感じているため、戻す機能を提供して欲しい。
        また、モバイル用アプリでは、いつ仕様変更が行われたのかなどの公開情報が乏しく、ロードマップ等に詳細を公開して欲しい。

        Previously in Office app for iPad, it was possible to draw a file with view permission and to save the file as a new one. However, currently users are not allowed to draw the view permission file directly. To do so, we must copy the file first and then make drawing to it.
        For improvement of usability, roll back the previous way and let users to draw the file and then make a copy file.

        • Warn users about features about features that are about be removed.

          The way that almost every PDF-annotations was removed leaving just a few basic functions without any warning or mention of it in the update log is extremely frustrating (version 10.34.11 to 10.37.1 i think). I am in charge of assisting 30-40 people using OneDrive as its primary synchronization tool and up until the recent versions we have been using the built-in PDF-annotations tools extensively. When this feature was removed without any warning or mention in the update-log, we basically came to a standstill. There is currently no good way to edit PDFs without exporting and importing every single file. I…

          • Enable form box editing in PDFs again please

            Since around 1 week I cannot edit a PDF that has forms included (blue boxes for text input, a signature field also). Before it was like this: When opening the PDF within onedrive, the pdf opened up with the forms appearing in transparent blue boxes, also the signature field appeard. Upon clicking a form box one could type the text inside. When clicking the signature box it was possible to sign the PDF.
            Since 1 week when opening the PDF, no more blue form boxes appear, as if it was disabled. I couldn't find any settings to enable the form…

              • The new PDF markup toolbar is a significant step backwards

                bring back the PDF markup toolbar of old --- jeezz -- why did the developers mess this up -- it was great before -- it is quite bad now. user friendliness a big step backwards. When using the pen to write on the document the line size goes from 1pt to 50pt --- seriously ??? Who could possibly use a 50pt line ? The pen should be refined to work really well in the 1-2pt line width --- as it is now the 1pt seems to barely work and the 2 point line is to thick for writing. Line widths…

                              Not an idea - just advice from Jason at tech support. I have been having recent issues with the one drive app on my iphone not syncing with updates to the word documents that I have done on my desk top. It works fine on desk top, but keeps reverting to old document versions on my iphone. Please can you fix this bug in the next update? Thanks

                                      • Pdf markup improvements

                                        Two features lacking with the current tool:
                                        1) when a pdf file is open, the file name is not displayed in the markup window. Should displayed so that the reviewer can tell which file is being marked
                                        2) when closing a pdf file and then reopening within minutes ,the file should open to where the last markup was made — not reset to the beginning of the file. Maybe after hours since the last edit, reset to the beginning would be appropriate.

                                        • Fix the PDF annotation interface

                                          The old versions had a much better interface for annotating PDF files, there was the option to add text and shapes as an annotation and there was also a wide selection of colors to choose from when using a pencil or highlighter. The old interface even looked more modern and elegant and matched the blue theme of the app plus it was movable. This new interface looks bad, does not move around, has very limited options and an extremely narrow selection of colors.
