How can we make Xodo even better?

Undo/Redo feature for any type of edit you make

The ability to undo/redo like in Microsoft word, like when highlighting, underlining, typing text. Of course you could hold finger on annotation for a few seconds and press delete but that's a hassle.

The freehand option has this option but that's only when you are in "drawing mode".

I imagine this will get tricky since it automatically saves every 30 seconds...

        thanks Anon 2, it is easy to erase the highlight, as you suggested

        When in highlight mode, left click on the highlighted section you want to undo and a menu bar appears for the section with options including a delete option. This deletes the highlighting, not the text.

        I am reposting this because this is a very helpful suggestion!!
        XODO works great!

        For me this app just works great. I'm using a Lenovo Helix the first edditiion. Isee that it is difficult but if u are in edditing mode just lightly tap on the area u want to undo and it works.
        This app is for free and works good.
        Sad that people dont appreciate it.
        Give feedback not hate.
        Thx Xodo Team.

        Keep dressing deletie to undo. Just select the highlight you want to undo and select delete. If nothing seems to happen, keep repeating. It means that there are a lot of highlight layers.

        What about undo/delete in touchscreen mode? Tapping on item to delete isn't producing a pop-up menu or delete button.

        Updating my last comment in regards to undoing something in this app .... I wasn't brutal enough. Stunningly awful how bad undo is on this app. This app is worthless. I hope you feel bad.

        undo implementation in this app is truly awful. AWFUL. Highlight something? Good luck undoing it!

        The delete highlight still is not working!!!
        Sometimes I select an area by an accident and and it gets colored. Why you don't let me to delete it!?

        Click on the hand > click on the highlighting > click the delete pop-up menu item. Simples.

        I thought Xodo was the PDF annotator for me. I wasn't able to undo highlighting and did a google search only to find that there IS no way to undo highlighting. This is a problem! I will have to look further for an app that works for me.

        How do i undo/redo? You said it has released, but i ctrl + z doesnt do anything?

      • Anonymous commented  · 

        i just wanted to throw this out there. i'm a student and was super-bummed i couldn't undo the highlighter function. a quick work-around solution that i've found is to do the following:
        1. change one of your brushes to the highlighter color you want
        2. set the opacity to 20%
        3. use this brush to highlight the text you want manually

        this allows you to go back and erase should you need to. not the straight line that you would get with the highlighter tool, but it's a quick alternative if you're just highlighting on the go!

        WTF? You're not capable to add an undo feature in two years?????

      • Jhudson commented  · 

        Please please please update this with the ability to undo highlighting and underlining. Otherwise this app would be flawless!

      • Anonymous commented  · 

        so frustrating that you can't undo highlighting. I've just about given up with this app, which is a real shame as it should be my go-to. Spending too much time faffing about. Supposed to make my Masters reading easier, not less efficient! 0 stars from me now.

        I've hung in for a long time but I have to be able to work efficiently. There is no point having a bunch of features if every time you try something, unless you execute it perfectly, you spend hours fussing with messed up files. Any update on the Undo button? I'm going to have to jump ship.
