Since Drawboard is the best PDF-App for windows i really want it as the standard app for PDF-files.
But it's annoying that every opened file remains in the Tabs even after closing the App. Most of the Files should be closed coupled with the App and only a few favourites should be open all the time.
It seems some people like this feature and others don't. I open many pdfs and use them a for a few hours to make some notes and don't come back in a while. So Drawboard gets very cluttered. Maybe when we exit it can ask if we want to keep any files opened in that session open in tabs when we exit. Ones already left open will stay open. Maybe best of both worlds.
The more concerning issue I have with leaving them open in tabs is that the annotations are not saved when you close the app. If you close the tab you are asked to save changes. I would like to be asked to save changes when I close the app as well as when I close the tab. I can see this leading to problems if the changes are resident only in the app.

I have to say that I love the way Drawboard is currently implemented with this... If I don't want to view the drawing anymore I close it but It remains up until I say otherwise.
I support the idea with browser-like Tabs (i think adobe reader dc works in this way, too) and then only save selected tabs for later.
We definitely need a separation between "favourite" permanent tabs and "by the way" tabs which disappear after closing the app!
I like the way the tabs work, especially for my favourite pdf's. but not every opened file should automatically be a permanent tab.

A better idea would be if it worked like modern browsers regarding this, and contained an option to save open tabs after closing it (I happen to like the feature as is, but I can see why it's not for everyone.
