How can we make Xodo even better?

Text Reflow & Dictionary/Translation option

It would have been perfect if you could add:
1. "Text Reflow" option and we could still edit and highlight in text reflow mode.
2. Dictionary so if we highlit a word the option of translating would be there (e.g.: Play Books).

All the best and keep up a good work ;)

Thank you for your feedback! Text reflow has been implemented and is included (along with a ton of other great stuff) in the next major release of Xodo. Text reflow can be accessed by pressing the page icon in the toolbar. Please checkout this article for more info:

In addition, as per a previous update, Dictionary and translate is also available. Simply highlight a word (or phrase) and select define or translate from the popup menu (they may be under the three dots).

Please update your version of Xodo to check out the new features and improvements! Thank you!

    I still don't think that Xodo is capable of allowing text highlights while in reflow mode. The discontinued Repligo reader was capable of doing this almost a decade ago. Repligo seems to accomplish this by showing you the actual (OCR) text behind the page mask.

    overall, an excellent reader. 5 stars.

    wish: to be able to use OFFLINE DICTIONARY compatible provided for example by goldendict...

    or maybe i just something in the settings.

    keep up good work.

    Text reflow where the font size is increased to something readable on a 4.5" screen would be awesome, and would make me leave ezPDF behind forever on my Android phone

    Adding dictionary support will be very easy since there are a lot of third parties dictionaries available out there. For example, I'm studying TOEFL now. Imagine how easy it will be on me studying several books and knowing more vocabularies. I would replace all my readers software with only XODO if it had a dictionary support. Even if it will not be free. I have a Microsoft surface pro also and I installed XODO. So please support this feature in your next version of the software.

    Add a definition look up option when a word is highlighted. This will replicate the functionality found in most e-readers providing readers with an ability to use a built in dictionary to find the meaning of an unfamiliar word.
