I could not find this special feature in your top feedback - or I could not relate it to your list.
With the old Edge you where able to switch between your pen to write on pdf-documents or websites and using your finger to easily scroll down without clicking "write" again. This feature was the reason for me to prefer Edge instead of Adobe Reader to write on Documents. It just fundamentally improved your workflow.
I figured out, that it is possible to scroll with two fingers, but this isn't very comfortable. Espacially, because it this works not very well (zoom instead of scoling often times) and you get used to the differentiation of finger and pen from the old edge.
Is there a plan to implement this?

@Cloud772 Thanks for reaching out with that great question. I know that there has been discussion internally about pen functionalities, so I will loop in the team to see if they have any updates to publicly share.

@fawkes Is there any update on this. I use the Surface Pro 7 and it's really irritating using the two finger scrolling which always tends to zoom in or our instead of simply scrolling and it's not smooth at all.
I had to install the blocker to get back the legacy Edge since I mainly used it to ink on PDFs and I can't use it as the sole browser.

@shashankov Thanks for bringing this back up. I looped back with our pen-action feature owners on this and will let you know if/when they have any updates to share.

@Cloud772I can't beleive you got rid of this functionnality. I just received my laptop with a touch screen and a stylus, that I bought because of this feature: I'm working on PDFs every day.
I'm just so disapointed.
Indeed, you can scroll using the side panels, but if you touch the document by mistake you have to spend seconds cleaning it. It's just so frustrating.
For the record you forced your users to switch to edge if they used "reader" which had this feature enabled. And you don't allow users to switch back to reader.
This is nonsense.
