Non-permanent drawing tool/annotations to improve collaboration

When collaborating with others in the same file, I would like to use non-permanent drawing tools to highlight areas on the board that I’m talking about.

During calls/pairing sessions etc, the only way to draw attention to a portion of the design is to use the ‘pencil’ tool, which adds a permanent object to the file that has to be deleted manually.

I would like to have a new tool (could be grouped with comments?) that allows drawing on the canvas in a way that it only lasts for a very short time, similar to how drawing works on Slack’s screenshare tool. The drawn path could fade out automatically after a second or two, so there would be no need to manually clean up the files afterwards.

Might work better in presentation mode or figjam. The design mode already has a lot of features. Good idea though.
