Hello,

I used the the following link HOW DO I START USING APPLE PENCIL ON IPAD PRO / ACROBAT?  to see if I could freehand draw on my PDF and it doesn't give me the option to. Will this be updated?

Thank you.

Hi Tehlirus,

After the recent update, the steps to access the freehand tool has changed.

You get an option to select the freehand draw tool under the comments.

Once you open the Adobe Acrobat Reader, refer to the steps mention below:

- Open the PDF and click on the blue circle with pencil icon at the bottom left corner of the screen.

- Select "Comment" from the options that appear on the list.

- Then select the drawing tool (pencil icon) from the tools provided at the top of the PDF.

Hope that helps.

If you are still not able to get the drawing tool, feel free to update the thread.

Let us know if you are referring to something else.

Regards,

Meenakshi
