I like using free draw annotations in Speedgrader to mark up problems when grading work in physics. For the first few annotations I make, the annotations respond very quickly to my stylus and I'm able to write naturally. However, the more I write, the slower it gets, to the point where I need to hold my stylus to the screen for long periods of time to make a single letter. Has anyone else experienced this issue, and it there a workaround?

I think your problem is that these comments all become one large comment unless you click the checkbox after every few words. Then it has many stroke points in its buffer, and that is what you are observing. Click that checkbox, close the annotation and start another frequently. That problem I figured out after too much time struggling today. Maybe this can help you if you didn't figure it out in the past year.
I have a Surface Pro. Technically you can annotate with a stylus, but in reality it shows Canvas has miserable technology. Our university just switched from BlackBoard to Canvas. It took BlackBoard too long to give stylus support, but they finally had it. Now I'm back to practically inoperable pen input. Grading 2 page reports is taking me FOREVER and my writing looks like a kindergardner's, even when I write V-E-R-Y S-L-O-W-L-Y. Pen input is not a new computer technology. You know that teachers and professors will be doing grading of essays. Why do you have a pen icon if you didn't expect it? Making a transition from one platform to another is difficult enough. Now this just another insult. I am not impressed and am incredibly frustrated.
