Add "undo" feature to PDF inking so that when we accidentally erase/remove something (inking, highlight etc) we be able to undo it, also would be useful to use the "undo" feature for when we add inking so instead of using eraser we just undo the action.

the undo feature can either be tied to the usual CTRL + Z shortcut or a button on the PDF toolbar in Edge.

(also sent using feedback button on Edge)

@HotCakeX Love that suggestion! And thanks for submitting feedback, our PDF team should be reviewing it shortly. :)

Hi! Adding undo sounds great, but I can no longer highlight text in the new version of Edge when I use my Surface stylus pen, and that, to me, is even more important. Drawing with a pen is the only annotation tool and it doesn't work well when you want to highlight text. I really hope MS will hurry to make the PDF annotation tools become like in the old version of Edge! Inking/ annotating in the old Edge was a wonderful tool, which I used a lot in my work. And which I miss a lot now. Do you know when things might be «back to normal»?
