just put the files on dropbox or whatever cloud file storage thing you prefer and use xournalpp on all the platforms for annotating. i'm sure there's some all-cloud thing out there as well, but xournalpp is probably as good a cross-platform inking/annotation experience as there is.

looks cool will investigate thanks
