Annotate shared PDFs on the web
I recently got invited to annotate a PDF shared with me (editing enabled) via OneDrive. Unfortunately this isn´t possible yet; I had to download a 20 Mb file, annotate it in Adobe Reader, reupload it to my own OneDrive, send a link...
Please implement collaboration features on annotating PDFs like it is possible in Word Online!

I am a teacher and I really need this functionality to correct my tests

How is it possible that this has been ignored for 5 years!
This limitation makes no sense - if the user has edit permissions for the file/parent folder, they should have the annotate option (speaking for iOS, I don't know what the situation is for Android)

In the android app the personal files (from "Files" section at onedrive lateral menu) can be annotated but the files shared with others (from "Sites" section) only can be viewed or downloaded.
The difference becomes evident because in the first case a button with a pencil appears in the right-bottom corner of the screen whilst in the second case it does not.
Why this difference?
It's a matter of permissions?
This was actually possible for most of 2016, but was removed for some reason during the summer. I sure hope they bring this back. There is no reason to omit this feature.
