Before the latest update, it was not exactly easy but it was at least manageable to click on the comment tools and then select the pen to begin marking up a document. The pen must be selected again for each subsequent markup. After the update it seems adobe has added a third step to accessing the comment tools, and now it is really cumbersome—three clicks to just get to the pen (or highlighter etc), which has to be done each time, for each comment. Is there some sort of non-obvious shortcut to access the last tool used? Without it, marking up pdfs using apple pen has become a complete aggravation.
