While sharing screen, the shared document doesn't show

When the Screen Share feature is used, the presented document doesn’t appear in the window and blank screen appears on the participant’s window. If the host navigates the document that he wants to share then the document is visible to the participants.

Also the white board feature is not available with web client SDK.

The host has to switch between application window with integrated zoom and shared documents to access the features on zoom toolbar such as chat, participants list, record button etc…

Please advice the fix.
