Primer bad results over repaired drywall


After priming my ceiling with Sw drywall primer, the areas that had drywall repairs show some differences. (By touch, they're hardly felt) I thought the repairs were sanded properly... Will a top coat cover these differences, or do I need to sand these?

If they can not be felt the top coat should cover it.
PS It's going to need two top coats.

I wouldn't go that far. Just because it doesn't have an edge doesn't mean it won't look like a sunnyside egg on a fastener hole or a hump/mound on a tape seam. The touch does not have the same precision or sensitivity as a ray of light. Let's not get ahead of ourselves here.
