Users want to have different options for highlighting color, text color, and drawing color when annotating.
Yes, this is desired!
Yes, very useful to have ability to choose colours, as was the case in crocodoc.
Agreed - staff often use colours to indicate different types of feedback
Personally I like to use colours to associate with the different criteria / rubric elements to make it easier for students to comprehend the relationship between the feedback and their results.
Another unacceptable regression from Crocodoc.
The sooner this is available, the better! We have a large number of frustrated faculty and no solution. When is this supposed to be available?
Super necessary. In the past, our English teachers have used a color coding system - yellow for grammar, blue for ideas, etc. Right now they can't do it anymore.
You also can't edit a comment once you've written it, which feels like a bug. This is all a huge downgrade, what were they thinking?
Liked this feature in Crocodocs....great tool for instructors
Yes, this is necessary to complete in-line grading.
I teach English and spend time thoughtfully grading essays, but the removal of several useful tools makes my feedback less effective. What is missing is:
Ability to use multiple highlight colors
Ability to see all the comments at one time
Ability to put a check mark in front of a line having a sentence skill error
Ability to pinpoint specific text -- vs calling out a large chunk ---
Ability to use the Pencil option to write notes on the deliverable and bring emphasis to the feedback.
Ability to print our annotated deliverable.. to review with student.
The ability for students to SEE feedback... they too are left confused.
As of this week, the "pencil" tool has been added. It lets you draw (freehand/freemouse) a black line anywhere on the file. When you lift the cursor, your line becomes a graphic object which can later be deleted (though the steps to accomplish the deletion vary with browsers). This lets you do some of the items you've listed, although the "check mark" would have to be mouse-drawn -- there are not yet any "stamps" or emojis or icons. (And I don't mean that I want emojis. Sad!) Saving/printing the annotated file is somewhere on the drawing board (haha) but has not yet been programmed; it's a separate Idea in this forum. Another Idea covers the need for different colors for annotations -- but that complicates further the problems for Web accessibility for all of these annotations.
This is not only desired but an essential tool of the trade. It is a requirement of learning and teaching and unbelievable that it's not included begin with.
A group of my faculty have emailed me and asked that I post their request that difference colors be added.
Had a faculty member request this a few days ago also.
Absolutely! It helps students to better see different issues.
