About annotation grouping.

Please describe your issue and provide steps to reproduce it:
(The more descriptive your answer, the faster we are able to help you)

  1. Group annotations.

  2. Deleting from the delete button removes all grouped annotations.

  3. But, if it is an eraser, it will be one by one.

Just to confirm, is it a specification ?
(I would like to know the answer to explain to the customer.)

Please provide a link to a minimal sample where the issue is reproducible:

Best Regards.


I believe we are trying to be close to Adobe in behavior in certain areas. In Adobe, the eraser tool will still erase path points from a free hand annotation (even when grouped), but it will not delete other annotations.

However, this can be confusing in WebViewer when the eraser has a path indicating what will be deleted. So the eraser tool in WebViewer will delete annotations as well as remove points from paths. Being able to delete annotations when part of a group is likely just an extension of that behavior, as well as treating annotations as drawings on the document.

Let me know if this answers your question!
