Could we have an optional chart overlay allowing those of us using stylus capable tablets to mark up a chart at the planning stage with notes, arrows, highlights etc. much as in the same way one can scribble on a laminated paper chart with an OHP pen.
I see it being essentially a transparency ‌‌‌‌which would allow simple mark-up using the tablet's stylus with a simple set of features such as choice of stroke thickness and colour, an eraser and a 'wipe all' option.

I don't currently have a stylus enabled tablet, but if I did, then this sounds like it would be a worthwhile enhancement. Whether or not it would be technically feasible is another matter entirely.

Up to now support for stylus/pencil markup was denied by Skydemon, last time in connection to PLOG scribbling if I remember correct, but I am still of hope one day it will come.

The ability to markup a chart during planning stages is not a bad idea. I like it!
