  1. Conflicted copy while annotating PDFs from DROPBOX.

    Hello everyone.
    I'm facing an issue while opening PDF from Dropbox. During the annotation, it seems that xodo tries to save the changes on the original file, but this creates a CONFLICTED COPY and a new file in Dropbox.
    Any idea why this is happening? Any solution to this?
    Thanks

  2. Why a subscription model

    Hi, I've been using Xodo for years, despite its clunky interface. Why do I think it has a clunky interface? Because I don't use it that often and haver to work it out each time i use it. For example, after weeks I'll use it fairly intensively for maybe several days (end of a project for example), then not again for quite a while. My students are recommended to use it too (I teach part time at university).
    No more. Subscription models are based on sustained use of programs. Most apps i use occasionally as needs must. I pay a…

  5. app crash continously after having some pictures in editor.

    I am using android tablet: huawei mediapad m5 lite.
    It seem to me that after having certain number of images within the pdf editor, the xodo app will crash without warning, particually right after importing another new image or doing operations on a newly imported image.
    when that happens, I have to restart xodo and re import the image again.
    Is there any way to solve this problem?

  6. How to open PDF document outside of the Android app (Ionic-based)

    Hi, when I open PDF file using XODO Pdf Reader from my Android app (written in Ionic framework), it opens within the app.

    If I use another PDF app, it opens outside of the app.

    Is it possible to somehow configure XODO and/or change the app so that the PDF opens outside of the app with XODO?

  7. Opening a tab results in a permission error

    On Android, if you open multiple files, reaccessing a tab after several hours results in a permission error:
    "Access permission error: try to open this file from the original location again"

    This has been the case for as long as I can remember. The app has storage permission. How to solve this?

    I am using xodo in windows 10 pro. Horizontal scrolling feature through normal mouse is missing in xodo app whereas by viewing pdf through google chrome i can easily scroll page horizontally by pressing shift + vertical scroll bar of mouse.
    So i want to know is it only not working in my system or this feature is not yet available on xodo.

    Basically there are three features -
    1 Verticall Scrolling - using scrollbar of mouse

    2 Zoom in, Zoom Out - Ctrl + Vertical Scroll bar of mouse

  10. Chinese shows up in my exported highlights? any fixes?

    I have the boox note air and the galaxy tab s7+.
    I use both. The former for highlighting, the latter for writing.
    However, recently I found my highlights to contain chinese signs in place of random letters of words of my highlights...both in the highlights overview, and the exported highlights. Any fixes?

  11. Android PDF Dropbox sync no longer works

    Using XODO on Samsung Android Tablet. PDF Annotations are not Syncing to the Cloud.

    For a few years, XODO was working well with Dropbox:
    ie. I could open PDFs directly from the Dropbox app, or via the XODO browser, make annotations, and then it would automatically save back to dropbox and sync to the cloud.

    BUT for the last few months, sometime in 2020, I think. It has been super-flakey. Sometimes, if I restart, it will sync the first PDF I read and Annotate, but then soon enough, it stops syncing. If I open a second PDF, then often the…

  12. Background of the comment box turns white when the box is inactive

    In the dark theme, when I open a comment box and input text, the background of the box is in the correct black color. But when I left-click the outside of the box (in the app or outside of the app), the background of the box turns white. Because the text's color remains white, it is unreadable.
    Because each comment is shown by only two lines in the right-side annotation panel, this bug lets users harder to view comments.

  13. Reordering your documents

    Hello I wanted to ask a quick question since I couldn't find any related topic... How do you reorder your documents? I don't mean reordering pages in your document, BUT adjusting the order of your documents - for example I sometimes have 10+ documents open and I can't find an option to change their order by just dragging them to left or right... I tried to search for such option in the settings, yet to no avail. Does anyone have an idea for a solution?
    Best regards

  14. App crashes on tab close and otherwise

    App crashes seemingly randomly for me since a recent update, no problems before. I haven't found a repeatable trigger. I think it sometimes happens while closing tabs, but while some tabs are still open (I saw another post about a crash when it was the last tab being closed, not my case). I like how Xodo works with my S Pen on a 2-in-1, better than Adobe does, so hoping for a fix!

  16. Asking for installing newer version of xodo in different samsung tablets

    I have a samsung tab s6 lite, s6 and a s4. Recently, I found that the xodo app in my tab s6 lite has been updated to 7.0. However, my tab s6 and tab s4 can only installed up to 5.0.22. Can my other two tablets also install the newer version of the app?

  17. Annotations never sync to dropbox on Android

    When I make annotations to a pdf, I have to save them in my local storage on my samsung tablet or they disappear. It does not matter if I open a document directly from dropbox by clicking "open with" or if I open the file from dropbox through the Xodo app. Also, Xodo tells me the file is saving whenever I minimize the window. But the changes to not show up in dropbox if I close the file and open it again. What is going on?
    I should also note that it makes no difference if I'm using a flattened…

  18. Expand Zoom Out Height Limit (Windows)

    I cannot zoom out any further, if the document has just a bunch of slide pages and the pages are short in terms of height. With other PDF readers, I can easily do that. In Xodo, the boundary of the seen area of the document is limited by a page. For the documents which have smaller page heights, this introduces an accessibility problem. I want to see two pages of the slides with just one move (with the mode continuous-vertical-single). Unfortunately, this is not possible with that state. That is the main problem for Xodo for me. Thanks in advance.

  19. Xodo becomes unresponsive when selecting ink with stylus

    Hey, I have a problem when using Xodo with a stylus pen on my windows 10 tablet.

    Steps to reproduce:

    1. Write with ink with a stylus pen in a pdf
    2. Select ink by using the button on the stylus (if the stylus supports is)
    3. XODO becomes unresponsive. The only way to close it is via Windows Taskmanager

    Selecting ink with touch works.
