Annotation/Comment function when marking Assignments - Student view issues

A colleague and I have recently been confronted by the following issue:

We have used the annotation/comment function within the assignment marking capabilities of Canvas (Crocodoc). Our Students, however, are unable to see this on their view of the annotated assignment in the sane window and are only able to see the 'Assignment Comment' that is on the right hand side. (I have attached a screen shot of the example for you to look at.)Screen Shot 2016-03-02 at 10.22.32 am.png

After reading through the guides, the only solution we have found is to download the assignment as a pdf with the comments (as per the canvas guide) and enable the comments in adobe reader, then send this to the students to read their feedback. However, it doesn't seem correct that we are able to write comments throughout the document that the students are unable to see in the same format. Is this the only way students are able to see these annotations or are we missing something??


Many thanks in advance!
