  1. Allow users to create links to other PDFs

    Thank you for implementing the creation of links to other parts of the same PDF or to web pages (added to beta channel on 19 Jan 2017).

    The next step would be to implement links to specific parts of other PDFs. This was part of the original suggestion (which received a very large number of votes), but does not seem to have been created as a separate suggestion now that you have implemented the internal/web page links.

    Linking to other PDFs would be extremely useful, since many projects consist of multiple documents that relate to each other.

      Thanks for the feedback!
      The reason why we did not include this capability is that the links created would break if the user moves the PDF to a different folder. This means we would receive many users complaints saying that “their links stopped working” or “there’s a bug in Xodo”. This extra capability would therefore be confusing and frustrating for some users, whereas we strive to keep Xodo simple and delightful to use.

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

    • Automatic download of Dropbox files

      Normally files from Dropbox need to be opened(downloaded) once before they can be adjusted without internet connection, so they have to be opened once before there is no more internet connection. After that, changes in files are synchronised when the internet connection returns.

      It would be nice if Dropbox files could be automatically downloaded when there is WIFI/LTE/4G connection. So that files are always editable in case of no internet connection.

      In settings the automatic downloading of files could include a toggle for WIFI only or WIFI/LTE/4G.

      The automatic download future will be useful in case of a lost internet…

        Thank you for suggestion. Xodo will continue to cache Dropbox documents for offline usages, however to guarantee offline availability by adding a copy of the file to the device, we recommend using the official Dropbox app. You may then use Xodo to read and annotate the document offline.

                In bookshelf it would be great if I could organize each document into folders to make it easier to search for documents and make it seem less cluttered.

                  • Enable Google Drive fast-sync as done for Dropbox

                    I think it would be very useful to add the fast-sync (upload only the change you made, not the whole document to minimize data use) support for Google Drive

                      Thanks for the feedback! Although this item will not be possible until Google Drive provides such functionality. We will definitely consider adding this when it is available from Google.

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

                      I find that the formula in a word file is not able to display properly when it is open with the xodo pdf. Hope that the next update will fix those bugs.

                          Xodo should fully support external SD card.

                          We are not aware of this issue. We would like to work with you to sort this out. Please email us at support@xodo.com with details. If we can reproduce the issue we will be able to provide you with a resolution ASAP! Thank you!

                                        Hi, due to nature of PDF there is no app that can reliably edit PDF like word-processor. We don’t claim this. But with Xodo you can create/edit annotations, insert/delete/rotate pages, place images, text, scribbles, sign documents, fill-forms etc… see http://goo.gl/nQ2TsZ. So Xodo is definitely a PDF editor but is not a word-processor.

                                      • make Farsi non-pdf files readable

                                        you dont seem to support Farsi files, at least the .docx ones. it just shows a bunch of commas and points.

                                            Hi,
                                            Thanks for reporting this.

                                            This is a bug rahter than a feature.
                                            Your image and description should help us track it down.

                                            You can fix the text by zooming in and then zooming out again, as this will trigger Xodo to re-render the PDF.

                                            Thanks,
                                            Tomas
