      Thanks for the feedback! We have completed this item.

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

    • Text Reflow & Dictionary/Translation option

      It would have been perfect if you could add:
      1. "Text Reflow" option and we could still edit and highlight in text reflow mode.
      2. Dictionary so if we highlit a word the option of translating would be there (e.g.: Play Books).

      All the best and keep up a good work ;)

        Thank you for your feedback! Text reflow has been implemented and is included (along with a ton of other great stuff) in the next major release of Xodo. Text reflow can be accessed by pressing the page icon in the toolbar. Please checkout this article for more info: http://goo.gl/cmvjT7.

        In addition, as per a previous update, Dictionary and translate is also available. Simply highlight a word (or phrase) and select define or translate from the popup menu (they may be under the three dots).

        Please update your version of Xodo to check out the new features and improvements! Thank you!

      • Back and Forward button

        I mostly read scientific papers or books who has hyperlinks to equations, figures, references and its annoying to navegate to all pages in between to get back to the last page i was reading. So i think a discrete back and forward button to get back will be awsome.

        • Smart highlighting

          I was thinking of a new option "smart highlighted" to detect the whole word to highlight, and not letter by letter. Sometimes I am highlighting and it highlights in the middle of the word and I have to modify it until it reaches the full word.

                • Touch screen support for web app

                  I would love to be able to use Xodo on my Chromebook Flip, but the web app doesn't support the touch screen in tablet mode. I hope you can add this feature some time soon! This would make it so great to use with convertibles like the Flip.

                    • Continuous Scroll

                      Please add option in Settings to select Horizontal Scroll or Continuous Sroll. Currently only Horizontal Scroll is available as the default setting.

                      Continuous scroll lets you browse PDF documents just like they’re web pages in a browser. You no longer need to flick through horizontal pages, each one is displayed vertically and you can scroll through them from the first to the last without having to tap a single button.

                        • 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.

                          • Merging PDF Files

                            Hi,

                            A great feature to add to the app will be the ability to merge multiple PDF files into one file.

                            Look forward to this update.

                            Regards,

                              Thanks for your feedback! You can now merge files in Xodo. Using the navigation drawer (the menu that slides out when you tap the three horizontal lines button), if you select “Folders” or “All PDFs”, and then select one or more PDFs (by long pressing a file, and then tapping subsequent files), under the top overflow menu (three vertical dots), you will find a “merge” button.

                              This is a little hard to find, and in the next major version of Xodo it will be easier to locate, so please stay tuned for that.

                              Thanks again for your feedback!

                            • Lock horizontal scroll

                              I read in continuous page view and zoom to have the content take 100% of the screen width. When I scroll down to continue reading, the horizontal scroll is completely "free", so I have to keep having the page centered all the time. This would be much easier if the horizontal scroll was locked or at least " harder”, like more sticky. I've seen this done in other apps.

                                Thanks everyone for your feedback! We’ve made the horizontal scroll sticky, so you can read a zoomed-in document without loosing your position. We also maintain the zoom level when changing pages in non-continuous mode.

                                If you are looking for locking the zoom level and the scroll position, this can be done from the View Mode dialog > Crop Pages.

                                  Hello,

                                  Glad to see you’re enjoying Xodo. Translation at Xodo is user-driven, and you can contribute to our Persian translation here: https://crowdin.com/project/xodo/fa#

                                  Its almost complete! Also the next Xodo update (to be released within next couple of weeks) will feature support for Right to Left :)

                                  Thanks for your support!

                                  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.

                                    As someone who works with many PDFs, it would be great to have the option to select multiple and have the share option as you do to with a single PDF. (current multiple selection options are "move" and "delete"). Thank you!

                                      Thanks for the feedback! We have completed this item.

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

                                    • 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.

                                        • 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!
