@Martian @MarthaR , it looks like there is a support page about this (https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/articles/115005706806-Using-annotation-tools-for-collaboration), which says "You cannot annotate when sharing your entire screen into the meeting via iOS device. You can only annotate when sharing a portion of your screen." This support page was suggested by a Moderator on a similar post (
My question is how does one share "a portion of your screen" on an iOS device or is this actually indicating that one must select any other Share Content option other than the [Screen] option.
Hi. I need an answer for this too. I want to annotate on the screen when someone shares from an iPad. It says on your help page you can only annotate if you share a portion of your screen but it shows nowhere on how to do it. Can you please explain immediately
I'm also having the same problem @RN
When I share my screen with the Ipad, the annotate tool does not show. I have verified that it is enabled on my zoom settings and I can use it normally on my desktop. The Ipad seems to be the issue.
All of us in this page have already read the article you linked. There's nothing there that gives us a solution.
Your last reply also does not give any solution or answer. Am I to understand that Zoom does not offer the annotate option on Ipad only desktop?
If there is a way to use the annotate tool on Ipad please give us a complete answer if not then just tell us that Zoom hasn't provided this for it's users yet.
Please don't reference these articles as they are useless for this particular issue:
Hi @pmmattos apart of those redirects that I supplied are redirected to the knowledge base article on using annotation for all available devices; specifically using annotation for iOS, suggest looking into the iOS collapse-dropdown within the knowledge base article.
Note: if you are not the Host, the host may've disabled annotating when sharing screen as well.
Woww…That’s really interesting! Zoom support doesn’t understand the problem let alone providing solution for it.
I experience the same issue and it’s really annoying. Every time I have to apologize to my clients that they can’t annotate my screen because I shared my iPad screen. Then someone else shares their screen and everyone is able to annotate. This is a major major flaw for a leading application like Zoom, and no one seems to have any solution for it.
