How can we make Xodo even better?

Add a lasso tool like many other pdf editors have too and if not too much work make notes groupable

I'd love to see Xodo having a lasso and or box selection tool for moving around, deleting or resizing notes we took, picking apart drawings consisting of more small pieces is just painful.

    Simply look how the Evernote lasso tool for handwritten notes works and you will realize how this feature must be added asap to the great Xodo !

    This app is seriously in need of the lasso tool PLEASE ADD IT ASAP, would make life so much h easier.

    This is the only crucial feature really missing. Things like pen sensitivity are luxury and only enhance use cases. But THIS FEATURE opens NEW USE CASES. Please, please add it.

    yes, would be great.

    please add also a copy / paste for grouped notes. with this notes could be shifted to another page.

    Please add it, please! At the moment it's the only thing that prevents me from using xodo...

    It's like those tools where you select an area, determined by how you draw a shape and has the dashed line outline. it'll really help with manipulation of annotation and help with erasing specific parts which can takes a while.

    That would make XODO definetely the best free PDF editor if they implement it - again? - i think i saw it on a older version...

    when I'm writing with my son pen, it's impossible to select what I want, to maybe move that portion of notes. I would like to select a region of free hand (so pen) notes and move it wherever I want in the page.

    For now I'm using the App "squid" on my Samsung Tablet, but it doesn't have any integration in Google Drive which is essential for me. But they have this feature, that you can select multiple annotations with a lasso tool which is even more important. So as long as this feature is not implemented, i won't change to XODO. Some of my friends also say the same.

    I really want this feature too!!!
    I switched from Snote to Xodo for annotating pdfs on my android tablet and I miss the lasso box selecting tools. I find it difficult to move annotations on the current version of Xodo when there are many small details (such as a graph I draw, or when I write a couple lines of words), all of the pieces never want to move together as one and it gets messy.

    I also swirched from Snote to Xodo for annotating pdfs on my android tablet.

    I think that probably a new tool would not be necessary. Perhaps it would be enough to have the possibility to make a multiple selection of any item (text, stamp, box, draw, etc.), by click-holding on the first item, and then the following clicked items would add to the selection. Once all items selected, one could delete, move, change color, etc. from a pop up menu (the same menu that currently pops up when you select a single item).

    I take most of my notes on my Galaxy Note's S-Note app. This app, although lacking in many ways, has an incredibly efficient selection tool which enables one to select any of their handwritten notes in order to move or resize. Having this option in freestyle and rectangular selection tool options would improve the efficiency and professional capability of this great app.

    Xodo is a great app on the Surface Pro 3, but this is the only drawback. Notes made with the stylus are separated into different strokes, so you can't move the annotations, since you can't group all the strokes.

    This could be incorporated with Windows Surface Pro 3 Pen, which has a second button that is used for selection of objects on OneNote.
