Are you using the new Markups in SOLIDWORKS? Are you affected by this problem?

The Markups are opening a new world of possibilities for redlining drawings. Users asked for this functionality for a long time.


Watch this video for a crash course in using them: 3D Markup - SOLIDWORKS 2019 - YouTube


The problem is that the current functionality is impaired by a huge bug: SPR 1115627: Markup View: Mark up tool bar shows the Pen tool as greyed out and user can not change the colour of the mark up.


Even worst, this SPR is set to LOW Business Impact, so it will never get fixed.


Colors in Mark-ups are essential for some companies to convey a certain message.


Is anyone else here affected by this problem?


Problem is fixed in SW2020.
