Hi,

When I enable the "enableAnnotationAPIs" the add text comment button disappears from the UI. see attached image.

 

my code is attached

 

const viewerConfig = {
        // enableAnnotationAPIs: true,
        showLeftHandPanel: true,
        showDownloadPDF: true,
        showPrintPDF: true,
        showPageControls: true,
        dockPageControls: true,
        defaultViewMode: ""
};

$timeout(function () {

        var adobeDCView = new AdobeDC.View({
                clientId: clientID,
                divId: "adobe-dc-view-desktop"
        });

        var previewFilePromise = adobeDCView.previewFile({
                content: {
                        location: {
                                url: $scope.pdfsrc
                        }
                },
                metaData: {
                        fileName: $rootScope.pdfName,
                        id: $rootScope.pdfID
                }
        }, viewerConfig);

        const eventOptions = {
                listenOn: [
                        "ANNOTATION_ADDED",
                        "ANNOTATION_CLICKED",
                        "ANNOTATION_DELETED",
                        "ANNOTATION_UPDATED"
                ]
        };
        const customFlags = {
                showToolsOnTextSelection: true
        };

        // add save functionality here.
        previewFilePromise.then(adobeViewer => {
                adobeViewer.getAnnotationManager().then(annotationManager => {

                        annotationManager.setConfig(customFlags)
                                .then(() => console.log("Success"))
                                .catch(error => console.log(error));

                        annotationManager.registerEventListener(
                                function (event) {
                                        console.log(event.type, event.data)
                                }, eventOptions);


                });
        });

}, 1300);

Hi, Thank you for using Adobe Embed APIs. We haven't yet exposed Text annotation i.e. 'Add Text' tool via commenting APIs. That's the reason 'Add Text' tool is not available when you switch to API mode. It's however, available for consumption from standard commenting UX. We will roll out 'Add Text' annotation API shortly either this year itself or latest by January. Thanks
