    Does Notabilty allow you to annotate on webpages and PDF files? If not, can somebody please recommend an app for iPad Pro?

    You can annotate in PDFs with notability. Not on web pages directly. You will have to save the webpage as a pdf first (using an app like pdf converter or workflow), then export to notability. Alternatively, take a screenshot and use a photo editing app such as annotable or screenshot.

    PDF Expert 5 (link) is the one I use. It's $9.99 but well worth it. You can mark up several types of documents, not just PDFs. You can save your files through iCloud Drive and other cloud services and share them as well. I read many great reviews on it before purchasing and it has done great so far for me.

    Works great with the Scanner Pro (link) app as well to scan in a document and then transfer it over to PDF to mark it up.

    You can either copy the link and convert it inside the app, or use the share sheet extension.

    Then open it in the PDF converter app and export it to the app of your choice, such as notability or PDF expert.

    Honestly, I want something that allows me to annotate web pages without downloading them. It would be great to have the capability to return to the web page and see the annotation. But I don't know if that's even possible.

    LEDGE browser might meet your needs for the first half of that, but not the second. It allows you to visit a page, mark it up while viewing and save the marked up image, but in the end it's still downloading.

    Don't see it happening without system-level support.

    Is it something you do on a regular basis? In all my years of owning an iPad, I can't say I have seen the need to annotate on a webpage and share it.
