PDF annotation tool - NOT SOLVED
Several months ago Microsoft changed the wonderful PDF annotation tool on Onedrive for iOS, to a new version that works very bad. A large group of people from industry and academy who use the iPAD with Onedrive got justifiably furious. At the following months Microsoft provided us with some minor fixes, and labeled this issue as "FIXED". No Microsoft, the issue is far from being fixed!
Among the things that are still not fixed:
-Eraser is too crude, it deletes too big of an area and not offering precise work as the previous tool offered. Moreover there is no outline for it to know what you're erasing until it's done
- Handwriting is laggy. There is a noticeable lag between the pen location and ink, this makes it very hard to write well. It worked beautifully in the older tool.
-UI is still ridiculously clunky and looks like Windows 95
Microsoft, if you are not willing to address these important issues that make this tool basically useless for most of us, at least let us have the ability to change the default PDF annotator in Onedrive for IOS. There are great tools on the market (as good as your older tool), let us it instead!

!!REQUEST!! The OneDrive PDF editing interface should be improved. The highlight and underline features should NOT be lodged under one icon. Super annoying to have to toggle back and forth when editing PDFs on OneDrive for iPad. PLEASE CONSIDER MAKING HIGHLIGHT AND UNDERLINE THEIR OWN ICONS. Will make it so much better for end users please!!!!!

Please bring back dark blue ink for the signature annotation. Light blue is not professional looking. Thank you.
