How can I disable Ink annotation selection?

I want to use Ink annotation in my application but when I restart drawing after drop mouse right to the next to first annotation then that annotation being select rather the start another free drawing, It is difficult for smooth drawing on PDF file, So if there is a option for disable selection for Ink annotation it will be great, Is there any option available for the same?

Hi Gaurav,   
  
Thank you for contacting Syncfusion support.  
     
At present, we do not have support for “Disabling Ink annotation selection”. We have already logged a feature request for the same. However, based on the problems described in your update, we are currently checking your requirement of drawing the ink annotation adjacent to other without selecting the other annotation and we will update you the further details on 29th January 2020.

Hi Gyorgy, 
 
On further analysis, we can achieve the requirement of draw inks on adjacent places using handwritten signature support. Please find the below UG documentation for your reference, 
 
 
Kindly try the above solution and let us know it meets your requirement. 
 
As we mentioned earlier, we have plans to implement the requirement of “Disabling Ink annotation selection”. Based on our present commitments and pending promised features, the feature is expected to be available on 2020 Volume 3 main release. We will let you know when these features are implemented.
