How can we make Xodo even better?

Palm rejection when writing with pen

It is natural to rest the palm on the paper/device/surface while writing with a pen...Currently we can't properly write because our hands' palms interrupt the pen input. Please add palm rejection / palm recognition !

    It seems like worked already. BUT, It is not perfect! When I palm on the screen, It sometimes recognize as a long touch or Zoom or page scroll. I am getting sick because of this. Please make a Pro version that we can pay for!!

    This is already implemented, at least on my Note 8 when I enable the "Stylus as Pen" setting, I have no problem with palm-rejection when annotating with my S-Pen.

    Please add this. Just because of this i was trying to find another app and have already spent 14 dollars but still didn't get the same experience as XDODO. Just please add like a button or something for palm rejection please

    In the Windows 10 Settings "Pen & Windows Ink" there is an option "Ignore touch input when I'm using my pen". This works for me already

    Getting very annoyed becauseod this problem. After zooming because of my palm, xodo suddenly thinks that my s pen too is trying to navigate the page. I have to move around the page once, get my pen off the monitor and carefully place the pen first(so thst i dont have to go through all this once again) to write sth. I'vebeen using xodo for about half a year now dont think this was always the case...... noticed this recently.

    This is the most important feature missing from Xodo. I would even pay a one-time fee ($5-1$10) for a pro version with this feature.

    That's a feature I truly am looking after and would appreciate to see implemented in near future.
    I have Android 4.4 and Android 6.0 devices with a Wacom pen.

    not only for Windows 10, consider the Windows 8.1 also please

    Great job by the way

    Please! I have a Tab S3 with an spen and it zooms in and out when my palm touches it. Mark is right, a zoom lock (like squid) would help a lot. Thanks!

    XODO doesn't support palm rejection feature to 'Freehand tool'

    I use galaxy note with s-pen and palm rejection works well in 'pan tool'.

    but when i use 'Freehand tool' to change color or size of the pen, palm rejection doesn't works.
    It interferes writing with s-pen when i use multi colors.

    I hope it will be updated soon.

    thank you

    I am so nervous for palm rejection. Sometimes writing with S-pen was recognized moving page.

    It can be solved with a simple setting that only processes the too left tap on a multi touch situation (too right for Lefties). This would help a good number of users without any palm detection procedure that requires IA or any additional hardware.

    you should buy a device with apropriate hardware for this purpose guys.
    Like galaxy note series from Samsung or Wacom company or (maybe others I dont know).
    Normal capacitive display is made for using a finger not a stylus.
    Solving this problem of rejecting a palm on software level is not a good idea at all.
    The same with a piece of paper and pencil.
    If your hand is dirty of carbon dust then it is on the paper too of course.
    XoDo has the option to write down a comment with my S-pen immediately and moving and other action with a finger.
    That is absolutely amazing!!

    I would highly appreciate this feature as well as I'm using Xodo daily for studying purposes.

    This is a very important feature for me. I've taken to wearing a glove to avoid this problem!
