How can we make Xodo even better?

Make Outline Editable

Allow the Outline (that shows the PDF's bookmarks by default) to be edited, like Bookmarks. I would like it if I could add or delete the default bookmarks in Outline if I ever wanted to change them, as well as just edit (rename) the default chapter headings that are listed in Outline. Bookmarks already allows this, and it would be convenient for me if I could do the same in Outline.

    Please work on bringing support for this, it appears you guys use PDFTron and I have seen an examples online of being able to edit Outlines with their SDK.

    Yes, I support this suggestion. Also I would like to add that it would be even better if we could make all the contents available in the contents with the page no in the PDF as the outline
    I think this facility is already there in the windows PDF reader

    I REALLY expect this feature, especially for the files with hundreds of pages, such as whole semester's lecture notes.
    It is a mess when adding lots of bookmarks for different types, but can be well organized in OUTLINE, which as I did in original pdf viewer

    Some of the bookmarks randomly disappear.
    I have noticed this.
    Makes the point of creating them for reference, pretty much down to luck.
    Please add Outline editing for a more reliable way to save pdf page positions

    Yes, this would be really great to edit the Outline. This is the only issue that holds me back from using Xodo as the only PDF Viewer.

    I do agree with this idea.... It's very important to edit or form outline. There are no devices on Android which support this feature.

    Yes, please do this. Being able to add and edit outline items is essential when you need to jump back and forth to endnotes and reference list. In particular, being able to update the target page of an outline item (but bookmarks also would do) to the current page would be great. Foxit and Xchange allow you to do it, but, unlike Xodo, they are not usable in a touchscreen tablet.

    I use "Bookmarks" in Adobe Acrobat, which appear in Xodo as "Outline". This prevents me from using Xodo as my default PDF editor.

    This is very very important to me to throw away PC while looking at technical ebooks. This was once supported in PDF max in Android, but the app is dead from marshmallow. And this is supported in PDF expert in iOS.

    This, so much. The current 'bookmarks' (that you can freely add/edit) are xodo-only.

    so if you want to add real bookmars (called 'outlines' on xodo) for a pdf file that will not necessarily be read on xodo (like in a pdf for your office: many will probably read on adobe pdf reader or google/etc.) you just can't use xodo right now.

    Having the option to select a font style (font, colour and size) would be a useful way to automate this. Further, having bookmarks show up under the appropriate heading would be just as useful.

  • Noella Soares commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    In most tablet/phone apps the bookmarks show up under outline. Would be useful to be able to edit or add. Thanks
