I'm trying to do the same thing, add an annotations to a pdf that is open. Since the volume 3 is already out, I guess that it is possible to do now.
Do you have a demo of how to add an annotation in an open pdf ? Like that one but with an highlight button for example https://www.syncfusion.com/forums/124587/is-there-a-pdf-sample-app-for-uwp ?
And is it possible to get the selected zone ? So that I know where to add the annotation ?

Thanks in advance!
