      Description

      Hi there,

      We're seeing some usability complaints regarding the "View annotated PDF" view when a student views their marked/annotated work, specifically that the "pop-up window" which the annotated PDF which can be moved, can't be resized. It is possible to resize statically using CSS which we have done but ideally could this be dynamically resizeable by the user?

      To see this:

      Submit a PDF file assignment to an assignment activity as a student

      Grade it with some annotations as a teacher

      View the "Annotated PDF" which should be available to the teacher in the view all submissions area or view it as the student from the assignment activity.

      It seems this can become scrambled as well to the point of being unusable if viewed on a mobile device.

      Workaround:

      Use Inspect element to check the CSS for the pop-up window and apply selectors/attributes and appropriate to expand the window and reposition it in the browser, e.g:

      .assignfeedback_editpdf_widget

      { width: 1500px!important; left: 300px!important; }

      Let me know if you need any more details regarding this.

      Recreation steps:

      1.Submit test assignment with annotations to a test submission area

      2.grade and save the test assignment as a teacher

      3. go to "view all submissions" and "view annotated pdf" for that submission from either edge or a mobile device.

      Kind regards,

      Sam
