Using Apple Pencil for commenting

Hi team,


we are frequently using the Power bi iOS App and communicating with each other using the commenting function. It would great to work here with the Apple Pencil to draw and write in the comments. Unfortunately, today the sensitivity of the drawing is much to rough and so drawing with finger is still more accurate. 

Any improvements planned?

Best regards

Sad there's still no solutions regarding this issue! It would be perfect to be able to use the Apple Pencil to write/comment in the graphs.

Hey @Christoph-Vogt ,


Are you refering to the "annotation" capability (that takes screen capture and let you add free hand drawing) and then share it with others using external apps? or to the commenting feature that is  Power BI interanl only communication channel?


In any case, at this point integtating with Pencil is not in our roadmap. 

Can you please add your idea to the User Voice, so other members in our community will be able to add their vote 


Thanks, Maya
