Annotation and drawing tools not appearing for other user

JessicaVlasova
Observer

When I share my whiteboard the annotation and drawing tools are not appearing for the other user. I have checked that annotation is enabled in my meeting settings and I have checked during the screen share that annotation is enabled. Any suggestions welcome!

Hello JessicaVlasova - I just tested this in my environment. When the host shares a whiteboard, the attendee has to select the view options to drop down and select annotate. See the following:

I've enabled annotation in my Zoom settings so that attendees (who are not screen sharing) can annotate. However, the annotate option only comes up for hosts and panelists and not attendees. Why is that?
