    I will say it is a pleasure to use the pen in this app. It works well and it's very fluid. I imported a large pdf (90mb) and it handled annotating and highlighting without any lag.

    Easily Can replace DrawboardPDF...

    Sounds good, but if it doesn't just open the PDF and saves back to it, it'd still be cumbersome to annotate a large number of PDFs. I'll check it out though.

    Requires an Azure account to sync between devices. Seems a tad harsh. Would love to see some integration with OneNote as well.

    I don't see an Azure requirement - I do see a M365 requirement for Calendar Access, @Mentions and Meeting Notes, but that makes sense to me...

    Honestly, if this synced to OneNote I'd use this over the W10 OneNote app for quick notetaking in a heartbeat. It wouldn't do for when I need more advanced features, but neither does W10 OneNote.

    Also, one nice touch I just noticed, the pen button switching between pen, highlighter, and pencil.

    <<...I'd use this over the W10 OneNote app for quick notetaking in a heartbeat...>>

    Bear in mind that, because this is a Garage project, it will eventually get retired...
