How to sync annotations?
#9
The same here (v3.8.16). I tried to synch two-way with all options activated, and none of my hand written annotions is synchronized back to the PDFs in Google Drive. 

Embedding annotations also doesn't help so much, because the annotations become ineditable. And you can't reimport them into MS as editable objects.
And there's no function like "export all PDFs with changed annotations within the last 3 months". Or at least, find or list all documents with annotations (or recently added annotations).
It seems that all annotations are hold in the sqlite-database only, in an undocumented format. So exporting/embedding them ist like printing single files, not like PDF-embedding (and I don't want to export hundreds of PDF files with then embedded annotations file by file).

This is a big difference to a real PDF editor like i.e. the software from Sony or Onyx. Both of them embed all hand written annotations directly and instantly into the PDF, which makes them feel like electronic paper. MS does not feel like that and is more like an image viewer with an additional database. For me MS doesn't seem to be the right app for people who use annotations (i.e. hand written) heavily.
