    Hi, I work in a K-12  school setting. Our teachers use the speed grader to give feedback to students on work they have handed in; they regularly make annotations directly on the document the student has handed in, rather than the feedback comments box on the side, this is particularly useful for highlighting spelling, grammar mistakes etc and posing questions for specific parts of the work.  However, when the student needs to action the feedback they can't then download the word document with the annotated comments, only a PDF file.  We need the student to be able to download the word doc with the teacher annotations, edit straight into that document, save and resubmit. In K-12 settings, especially with pupils who have learning needs, it's quite difficult for them to open a PDF with annotation and then have to go to another document to make the actual changes. As adults of course it's pretty simple - but that's not who we are working with.  Thanks for your consideration!
