Homework grading annotations: Can I use a Wacom tablet?

I'm setting up several H.S. science courses. My students submit 3 or 4 pages at a time of homework problems (Biology, Chemistry, Physics etc) as Word docs or as PDF's, typically. Can I grade these 'on the fly' using a Wacom tablet? I've been trying, and it doesn't seem to work. (Specifically, my stylus will pull down the paint brush tool okay - but won't write anything on the homework paper. I can click around on the paper, but it won't grab and write anything. My mouse *will write* but doesn't give me any control. I'm using Chrome. My Wacom tablet presently works fine on other documents.) I'm not asking for a Wacom tutorial; I'm just wondering if anyone else is using that approach. 

 

It would be very nice to be able to grade 'mathy' papers using a pen. Trying to type-in numbers and exponents as comments is impractical.
