  1. Text to Speech

    Please add a text to speech option (with different speed-options). This is a really usefull for students - read and hear the text simultaniously is much more efficent :)
    Thanks for your work

      In the latest version of Xodo for Android, you can select text, and from the popover menu tap “Read” (which may be under the three dot menu item) to read the text out loud. Thank you for your feedback!

    • Highlight without selecting text, like a pen

      highlight text without selecting, like using a yellow pen or box on text without hiding the text beneath, this would be particulary useful when a pdf contains formulas(for example with integration symbols) and it cant be selected easily.

        Thank you for your feedback! Freehand highlighter is now available in Google Play Store \o/ !

        Thanks for using Xodo and for taking the time to let us know how to make it even better.

      • Eraser Tool Size Options

        It would be great if the eraser tool could have the same sort of size options as the freehand pen tool. I use the 0.5pt pen tool extensively, but the erase tool is huge compared to the pen tool.

        • Flatten Form & Save As

          As a Realtor I reuse our basic forms for different clients. The Save As feature is needed to save in each clients file. Form Flattening when emailing similar to the PDF Expert app is needed as well for security when emailing the form.

            Since windows 10 is out, it would be nice if the app got updated to a universal Windows 10 app.

              • Support mouse scroll wheel

                For those with a bluetooth mouse attached, it would be nice if Xodo added support for the mouse scroll wheel. This would allow us to scroll through pages.

                There are plenty of Android apps that make similar use of the scroll wheel, such as the Chrome Android browser for example.

                • Page turns with bluetooth controllers like Airturn

                  To control page turns with the arrow buttons and in turn allow Bluetooth controller to turn pages. This would be especially useful for musicians using Xodo for music reading.

                        Hi All,

                        We just released a version of Xodo for Windows 10. In this release, it is possible to add pages to documents. Go to the thumbnails view and select the large + button.

                      • Disable annotation smoothing for styluses (disable post processing)

                        When using a stylus, hand written annotations get smoothed in a post processing step which can deform text and render it nit legible. Provide option to disable this effect for better stylus handling.

                          Thank you for your feedback! Annotation smoothing for styluses has been disabled in the latest version of Xodo.

                          Please update your version of Xodo to check out the new features and improvements! Thanks for using Xodo and for taking the time to let us know how to make it even better.

                          I think it would be nice and time-saving to be able to mark/unmark a pdf/ebook as favorites or with a star, than having to go through folders and "Recent" all the time. :)

                            I'm using the drawing tool for taking notes but when I save it is softened and what I have written become unintelligible.

                            I would like to be able to deactive the softening effect or have a tool to take notes.

                              • Continuously save document state

                                Currently, if a document I'm using is closed improperly, or even if I just switch briefly to another app, any changes I've made to the document disappear, including:

                                - highlights & annotations
                                - reading location
                                - font size
                                - currently open document

                                This is the ONLY app I've encountered on a modern mobile device that behaves this way. It makes this app unusable for all but the simplest tasks.

                                  I've found your app to be the best suited for annotating on a PDF file. I use a stylus and a Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 Tablet.
                                  Thanks for the great app.

                                  • Text Edit without box

                                    I recently got a pdf that has a lot of links and encourages notes in designated spots for an upcoming convention. I love your app and have recommend it to friends and family, but one thing I'm still missing is note taking without opening up a text box. I found pdf max does that particularly well, I just place the cursor where I need and can takes notes without the box. Their other features aren't comparable, however. I'd rather not have to have two pdf editors, so I was hoping this could be something Xodo integrates soon.

                                    Thanks for all…

                                      Thank you for your feedback! Adding text annotations directly to the document without a popup is now available in Google Play Store \o/ !

                                      Thanks for using Xodo and for taking the time to let us know how to make it even better.

                                      Please enable the javascript features of PDF's. I often use the calculate feature of PDF's and it would be great if those calculations could function in xodo.

                                      • Save last page viewed for Dropbox and other cloud files

                                        I think it would make the most sense to save last page viewed for Dropbox and other cloud files just like local files. Please consider adding this. I annotate PDFs all the time for school, but need seemless integration with Dropbox. To always be taken back to the beginning of the file is inconvenient.

                                        Thanks for the best Android PDF editor!

                                        • Dark theme UI
