    Are these sentences natural? May 17

    Hi,

    Are the following sentences natural to a native ear?

    1. I am done doing the edits.

    2. I am done the edits.

    3. Can you please check to see if you are able to remove the highlighting on the attached doc?

    Thanks,
    MG.

    1. I am done doing the edits. <--This is grammatically correct but a bit unnatural and awkward.

    2. I am done the edits. <--This is wrong.

    Most natural way to say this is: I am done with the edits.

    3. Can you please check to see if you are able to remove the highlighting on the attached doc? <-- This is correct but can be shortened and simplified to: Can you please check if you are able to remove the highlighting on the attached doc?
