M92: management of Annotations and Sketches

I use the "new Pdf Reader (beta)" and the "1.8.1 20121113 mixed" firmware on a M92 (from ArtaTech).

I would like to propose that the following features are implemented.

1. In the "Annotations" menu, there exists the "Erase Annotation" button (present also in the the "status line"), and it would be nice to have a button "Erase ALL Annotations" (currently, there is no such possibility).

2. In the "Annotations" menu, there exists the "All Annotations" button. It opens a new window with the list of all annotations -> would it be possible to add "edit" and "delete" (and "mark" several for "deleting") features in the window which displays this list? So that, one could easily manage the entries in this list.

3. In the "Annotations" menu, there exists the "Export Annotations" button. Would it be possible to add "Import Annotations"?

4. In the "Annotations" menu, there exists the "Erase Sketch" button (present also in the the "status line"), and it would be nice to have a button "Erase ALL Sketches" (currently, there is no such possibility).

Ad 3) Maybe good idea for sharing annotations made for the same document by different people. (But it would not be so simple to implement as it looks like. Exact location of text would have to be found by search. What if there already is annotation for that part of text. What if old and new annotations overlap...)

Ad 4) You may switch on/off display of sketches (at least in old pdf). If you wand to ged rid of sketches just move the file to another folder, but you will loose also annotations....

Generally, it might be cool feature to allow import/add of annotations/sketches/.... from different user (with his identification, so that it is possible to find who did it).

But, first let Onyx finish current version. When everything will work flawlessly we may ask new features.

With respect to point 3) ... I did not really mean "merge annotations with the existing ones" ... I was rather thinking about "remove all existing annotations and insert new ones from the imported file".

Well, OK. Joining would be even better. You may erase it before import, if needed.

The simpliest way to clear the file of all annotations is just to rename it
If you want to remove all sketches in it - go to .onyx subdirectory and remove the sketch file with same name.
