Cannot interact with screen while Teams Annotation is on.

Copper Contributor

Hey, so in the past I've taken a lot of advantage of other apps' screen-share annotation features.  Unfortunately, Teams implements it in a way that isn't very useful for us.  The presenter needs to be able to still operate/ navigate their machine while participants annotate.  The "cursor tool" in annotation mode is a little puzzling to me, but if there could be an additional cursor that return the pc to "normal mode" for the sharer, and does not interact with the overlay, it would be an extremely useful feature.


Thanks, Tom.
