Write on PDF files in ShareFile Android application

In a previous iteration of ShareFile you were able to edit PDF files on the ShareFile Android application.  You could then make edits using a stylist or typing and the changes would be saved and automatically uploaded back to your ShareFile folder.  However, the new ShareFile app appears to not save these changes.  Is anyone else having this issue?

What I use to edit my PDF files on ShareFile is normally Adobe Acrobat or "Write on PDF".  I then save my changes and for Adobe I get "Document Saved" and for "Write on PDF" it'll be the file name + "Saved on Device", however it's not actually saved on my device.

This issue has been resolved.  It's not the easiest to get to, nor is the UI for it intuitive, but you can achieve writing on PDF files within the ShareFile application on an Android tablet.  Open the PDF file, press the options button (3 circles stacked on top of each other) in the top-right and then Edit.  A '+' will appear next to the options button and one of the options is "Pen".  You can write on your document and the changes will be saved directly to the file on ShareFile, or you can save it as a new document.

A suggestion of mine would be to have options to change the style of the pen.  Make it larger, color, style type.  The eraser should also have options to increase the size.
