Markup for Attachments Merged

There is no web browser markup tool for attachments. This will become a must have or we lose on a major gap. Right now you have to download the file, make annotations and upload it again.

    This is something we're starting our preliminary discussion on as the project is high in the queue.  

    Right now the plan is to add markup for 'Documents' but Submittal attachments will stay separate.  We'll eventually merge the 'Attachment' and 'Document' experiences as they're built on the same platform.  But for now the priority for markup is on the 'Documents' with 'Attachments' close behind.  

    I renamed this item to specifically be for 'Attachments' as in our current state it will be two separate bits of work.

    Any update on this Josh? Looks like it has been a year since your comment below. Being able to markup sbmtl would be great especially for Approver. The ability to insert review sheet helpful too. Right now everything has to be downloaded, marked up, reloaded and sent by Reviewer. Same on Approver end.

    Markup for Documents will show up in next week's release.  We're then going to work out how we pull that back into 'Attachments' as I referenced above.   Our thoughts are to bring markup & versions to attachments, so when you add markup on an attachment it'll create a new version of that attachment.   Does that fit with how you'd see it working?

    Excited to see the document view and markup next week.  I'd add my voice to really needing the ability to markup submittal attachments as well.  This is a deal killer for some of our users to have to download the submitted attachment, put our stamp on it and then upload it back.  And then either delete the original or hope the architect figures out which one they should be approving.  Attachment markup or some other workflow around this would be super helpful in our implementation.

    Josh, another comment on Documents PDF viewer, it does not seem to keep bookmarks available.  Am I just missing that somewhere?
