Please give a brief summary of your issue:

docx annotations with webviewer

Please describe your issue and provide steps to reproduce it:

I am using webviewer to view and edit pdf and docx. With docx – When I set enableOfficeEditing = true I can edit the documend but I lose the ability to make any annotations in the document. The annotation option is there but it will not acknowledge any annotations. set enableOfficeEditing = false and I can make annotations

How do I make a docx editable and have the ability to make annotations?

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

Hello tpiazza55,

This is an expected behaviour, DOCX files do not support annotations. When loading a DOCX file into WebViewer without Office Editing, its converted to PDF by default.

Best regards,

Thank you for the reply

“its converted to PDF by default.” was also very useful info
