How to sync annotations?
#12
You have to explicitly embed the annotations in the annotations editor, and you can enable the "Allow editing of embedded PDF annotations" option in the annotations editor if you want to be able to manage those annotations. There are downsides to this:

1) Not all editing features are available in the annotations editor for embedded annotations because the PDF specification doesn't support everything that MobileSheets does
2) The PDF has to be reloaded in an editable state every time you enter the annotation editor (there are complexities with the PDF library that require this).
3) This can potentially cause problems with the page ordering feature in MobileSheets because now if you repeat the same page multiple times, the same annotations are present on every duplicated instance of that page. Some users may want this, some may not (it depends on the particular annotations).
4) Embedded annotations can't support things like highlights being drawn behind the page content because the PDF specification doesn't allow for that.

I used to support an option to automatically embed all annotations in the underlying PDF in the annotations editor. This resulted in far too many problems, and users would enable the setting without realizing the implications and cause all sorts of headaches for themselves. So I'm not going to bring that option back as it created far too many support requests that I had to deal with. You can manually embed them if you need that for your workflow, or as mentioned previously, you can export the song from MobileSheets, which will produce a PDF with the annotations embedded if you need to work with them outside MobileSheets.

I think you may also be forgetting that I support annotations for file formats other than PDFs (images, text/chord pro, and in the near future, Microsoft Word documents). So annotations have to be stored in MobileSheets for those file types.
