improvement suggestions for the new PDF annotation tool

Some instructors at SDU suggest a more flexible way to add comments to Student PDF files.

It would be an improvement if the comment could be added anywhere in the PDF and not only to a highlighted text part.

Sometimes students will hand in a PDF that is based on a photo of their handwritten assignment.

In this case, there is no text available and comments can't be added.

Another instructor points out that the highlighted text with a comment (in the new PDF annotation tool) is too easy to overlook.

A more visible colour or a comment indicator icon would be easier to see..

best regards
