When using Onedrive, It always makes a local copy, even when OneDrive has the file available offline.
This does not allow in-place notation/highlighting/commenting and the whole exercise fails.
since the edited file cannot be uploaded/synced to one drive.
This behavior does not happen on Apple iOS. You just have to make the file available offline. Same on PC it does not happen!
I have spent two hours testing. Opening the file from One Drive App and also opening the file from the reader, with and without the off-line files option.
Opening the file from One Drive App does seem to make local copies with a different naming convention, but opening from reader app seems to again, work on PC and iOS and edits the file in place rather than making a newly named local copy.
As per the issue description mentioned above, you are facing issue when annotating/highlighting/commenting a pdf opened from one drive in acrobat reader, is that correct?
I assume the functionality of adding annotation on the pdf ( without making a local copy) opened from a one drive is not available on android. Refer to the following forum threads discussing the similar issue:
