The feedback summary says inking on pdf is on the list for October, and it is there in latest canary 79.0.292.0 version. However, it is still lacking some basic pdf functions like bookmarks, outline, highlight which were there in the classic edge. Read aloud also doesn't work in pdfs yet.

Please don't mark it addressed before you add these features too.
On the other hand, since ebook support is also going away, can we expect a return of the standalone reader app?

Hi,
did you have to enable any flags to get PDF inking or was it enabled by default?
I can't seem to find it here, It might be a controlled feature roll-out

@HotCakeX no flags. it is pretty early stage I think, just a pen and eraser option, can't even change pen color.

Oh, it figures

I've also noticed that two page view is not available in Edge Chromium. @Deleted

This is what the PDF tool bar looks like for me..  Version 79.0.293.0 (Official build) canary (64-bit)

You can draw/write on pages, however you can not choose the color of your ink nor the size/thickness of your pen/brush.
