Changes to SpeedGrader Functions

I have some concerns about the recent updates to the Canvas SpeedGrader functions. After grading one set of papers, I generally find it to be a less-functional tool than it was before.

  • When I use the strikeout tool, the only option is to place a comment all the way to the side of the page. I miss the functionality of being able to add comments directly above where the strikeout was placed.
  • We can no longer move free-text comments.
  • I am unable to delete free-text comments. 
  • When I use strikeout and highlight, I cannot control where the strikeout or the highlight stops--if I drag over too far, it highlights or strikes out a much larger portion than desired.

Is anyone else experiencing these or other problems with the latest update? Is this the final form of the latest update, or are there still changes in the works?
