Add a "Save" button.
I am using android Xodo. When exiting the app, usually it saves the cloud files automatically, but sometime it does not. Please add a "Save" button to allow manually saving cloud files, or add a feature to remind users to save files when exiting. That way we can make sure we won't lost our work.

ADD A SAVE BUTTON!!!!!!!!
On the social media, I didnt see any activity from them since 2016. Are they still there?
I agree with this. I mainly work from dropbox files and saving a copy requires I save it to the local disk, so it's very inconvenient. Unfortunately, the app crashes every once in a while and I lose all my work. My "workaround" is to close the document every so often so it saves--it doesn't save at all otherwise. That way if it crashes, I at least have something. But this is painful and unnecessary...
Save a copy
Save exact copy
Chose folder to save
(program propones the same filename with a "(1)" added)
delete the "(1)"
(program says "The filename exists chose another one)
Your file is saved. Name not changed.
App shouldn't save anything to the cloud copy unless the 'autosave' or 'autosync' feature is turned on or else, everything better be saved when user intended to do so. Think that I'm emphasising just a word on document and 50 MB of data is starting to be uploaded to Google Drive. This is literaly insane! This makes any kind of annotation impossible on relatively large sized documents. Autosync feature should be left to the users as an option and they should be able to save the documents whatever point they like.
need it definitely
please...... I do not want to lose my work anymore
How stupid shall a programmjng team be to forget to include "save" button in the menu.
That made this app, a garbage.
Pls. Add. Save. button. Please.
PLEASE, ADD THE F* SAVE BOTTON!!!!!

The number of times I have lost work because of unstable autosave, is just UNACCEPTABLE! Yes, I want to shout: UNACCEPTABLE!!! I'm so happy with Xodo and have recommended it to so many people, used it in so many projects, and got all my students to use it. But now I will have to migrate to something else. Because I just cant afford ít anymore to loose my annotations.

Please add a save button, it's the only way to be sure that all the notations are saved at the end. Really really needed
auto save, which is good, but has a save button, should be for sure and more confident
Workaround: Click android task-overview button and xodo will automatically save.
Although the app automatically saves to the cloud, I have had to redo numerous annotations as this does not happen often enough. Please add a save button. It will really help to alleviate a major frustration point with the app.
I wold like to see Xodo stop auto saving and let the user be reminded if changes have not been saved.
I have to type extensive notes on customers to a pdf and then get it signed by them before we go our separate ways. when I attempt to save the document by closing it, %80 of the time it doesn't save and I have to retype up notes and meet again with the customer to get a signature before deadline. I found a work around by saving as an identical copy to make sure it saves changes. Besides the obvious inconvenience, this work around also creates a lot of unnecessary clutter on my phone. we need "save" as well as "save as" (incase someone needs to save a copy) that is something the app needs in the first place.

has anyone else noticed that editing the same document over and over just increases the file size forever? even if you delete everything, all the data that has ever been saved with that file is "saved" somewhere within the file. Its extremely frustrating.
forgot one thing. it is annoying to save the file as copy - name it different - delete the old version - rename it again to actual name... over and over and over again.
if there should be an auto save function i have to announce: it does not work ! ... how can such a simple elementary key function like saving a file be missing in such an App. please add a save button.
