  1. thumbnails in windows explorer

    I have set Xodo as default PDF viewer. It works very well. However it would be perfect if I can see thumbnails in windows file explorer.

      • Attach photos to a note

        I use xodo on bid walks for notes on pdf plans and as they say a picture is worth a thousand words
        this feature would be a compelling selling point in a pro version of your app
        I use your app on an ipad and a surface pro 3
        thank you

          • Autocorrect

            For students in the science fields taking notes. If I use the keyboard to add notes it autocorrects for me. I can't even type in meniscal. It is frustrating to go back and correct it. Or even when trying to shortcut notes for yourself.

            • Snapshot, add single PDF-Pages

              I really like XODO, thanks.
              I would like to use a snapshot-tool to make an image from a selected part of the PDF-Page, so I can add this, as an example, to my "word"-document. Furthermore I think the possibility to add single PDF-pages to the existing PDF-document would be great.

              • Export summary/list of annotations as text that can be pasted in Word in Windows app

                When reading PDF files, I want to be able to copy all the highlighted text that I have annotated in the document at once (eg. quotes for essays) and paste them in my Word document. I don't have time to do this for one annotation at a time! This feature appears to be available for Android, but I use Xodo as my PDF software on my computer and really need it for Uni. Thanks!

                  • Options for default stylus tool

                    It would be so amazing if you could add highlight as a default pen tool as an additional option to the standard writing pen. This would make markups a lot more convenient!

                    Right now, when we use an active digitizer on xodo, it defaults to writing, it would be nice if we could have the option to choose to highlight rather than write

                    • Vertical Scrolling as Default

                      I would love if you provided an option to have the default setting for new PDFs set to 'Vertical Scrolling', rather than Horizontal Scrolling. I know that you can choose this option in the menu bar, but having to do so every time you open a new PDF is tedious considering this would be such a quick fix

                        • Print multiple pages per sheet

                          I don't really want to print 36 color pages. Why can't I print, say, 4 pages to a single sheet, and print only 9 instead?

                          • Save Other PDF to Google Drive

                            Dear XODOs, It would be nice to have possibility to save the PDFs openned in the XODO chrome extention to Google Drive. I mean When I click on a PDF file somewhere on the web, the file is openned by XODO and I can only download it locally. Here, I would like sometimes to save the PDF directly to Google Drive (Cloud Drive)

                            • Offline dictionaries. Specially option to integrate apps like wordweb, colordict, etc. or even paid ones.

                              I would strongly request a support to wordweb app, as that one is more famous, easy to use and It's offline,

                              • Fix the time taken to open files

                                I'd suggest that you look into improving the time taken by Xodo to open a file while on Windows 10.
                                I've used it for a year and have absolutely loved Xodo PDF viewer. However, in the last 3-4 weeks, the time taken to open a PDF has become very slow even on my i7+SSD laptop. The same PDFs don't take time to open on other PDF viewers, and I even had to change my default reader from Xodo to something else.
                                Could you please look at what software changes might've caused this or how can I help you fix this…

                                • Group selection of strokes written directly with stylus

                                  Notes can be written directly with a stylus (I use Surface Pro 3), which is a great feature. However, the strokes are separated as different objects, so you cannot move/resize them.

                                  A group selection tool, such as a lasso/marquee tool, would be very useful, so that multiple strokes can be selected and moved.

                                  This could also be incorporated with the stylus, such as the Surface Pen, which already has a selection button.

                                  • synchronize reading position

                                    It would be nice if Xodo could synchronize the reading position of a document so if the same document is opened on another device one could continue reading without searching the position by scrolling

                                      • Give us back access to Dropbox!

                                        Man, I was so happy to find an app other than Adobe Reader, which would not allow me to highlight in some documents, and now, for whatever reason, I can no longer access the docs stored in Dropbox; PLEASE re establish that ability as soon as possible!
