    Being able to type text on top of a given PDF is a HUGE accessibility feature for students with print disabilities and fine motor disabilities. Taking away the typing feature makes things very difficult. Please re-insert the annotating with a text box feature into the OneDrive Mobile app for iOS.

    Removing this feature has caused so many problems for our school system we should’ve gone with Google

    Also requesting for this to come back, it is a downgrade and we should be able to edit documents as the old version.

    I have also voted on 'Bring back the modern annotation toolbar!' which is at 600 votes and counting. Same issue - the two items should be merged

    I cannot make any notes on the pdfs as i used to do with the previous versions of onedrive for my ipad. That feature was the main reason for me to use onedrive as I could keep all my notes in one place and access them from all my devices. The edit option is not available anymore, please bring it back, as it was the best feature of onedrive in my opinion.

    One drive app update for IOS has removed many of the previously available editing tools, eg. the ability to place text boxes on pdf's, among others. These editing tools are critical to our daily business operations and has severely impacted our ability to function. We require the previous editing tools to be reinstated immediately. Approximately 20 of our technicians cannot carry out their works and will potentially need to be stood down until we can address a solution. Please provide an immediate response so that we can notify our clients when this will be resolved.

    Please restore this feature ASAP! Like many businesses we use this as part of our daily workflow.

    New toolbar is a HUGE downgrade! Removed so many editing features from the previous blue toolbar which I used everyday:
    - Shapes; squares, rectangles, circles, arrows
    - Text boxes
    - Custom made boxes with dates, time, ticks, approved
    - Text options were so much better; colours, font, size etc
    - Toolbar was easier to use, move, more options, modern
    Huge impact to all of our company users for onedrive & ipad, is there a way to uninstall the new update?
