Hide names on Whiteboard on latest version of Zoom


Hello please could someone tell me how to hide the names of annotators on the Whiteboard on the latest version of Zoom. It was obvious in the last version but now I cannot find a way to turn this on/off.

Many thanks

  in the screen share controls for these annotation 

  • Show/Hide Names of Annotators: Show or hide the participants' names when they are annotating. If set to show, the participant's name will briefly display beside their annotation.

Please like any post that helped you; please mark solutions so others can find them!

Yes, EVERY time you share a new screen.  And if working remotely with students, and THEY are sharing a screen, then you have to instruct them.  Could we not go back to the default of off, and turn it on for those (very few) interested?  Is there a reason ZOOM does not hear this?  Customer Focus????
