  3. Include jump to bookmark in navigation history

    Jumping to another page by manually typing in its page number is recorded in navigation history, so jumping to a bookmark should be too in my opinion.

  4. Selecting Arabic Vowels and Other Diacritics

    Currently we can select text by using the text selector and dragging the handles to include whichever characters we might want to interact with (to highlight it, for example). For Arabic, this feature doesn't have any bugs, which I appreciate. However, for Arabic text that has vowels/diacritics, it would be cool if I could select the vowels and the constants independently so I could change the font color of the vowel, for example, without changing the font color of the constant.

    If I have this text, for example: كَتَلبَ
    I want to be able to change the slanted lines on…

  5. Add auto scroll option

    Can you please incorporate an auto-scroll function like the other pdf readers Foxit and Adobe have.

  6. Improve notes option

    I think the notes option can really benefit from some improvement. It is very unhandy to have to click the edit text button when I want to see the note text. I think the behaviour acrobat uses, namely a popup in which you can see and edit the text would greatly increase my productivity.

  7. An on-page button to go to the next/previous page

    Sometimes I use my Surface as a tablet, so I don't have access to the arrow keys on the keyboard. It would be awesome if there could be a little button (exactly how there is a "Previous" and "Next" action history buttons on the bottom left part of the screen) that you can press with your fingers to navigate quickly from a page to the next/previous one.

  8. Tracking annotation when it's moving

    For fast reviewing, I usually locate words or phrases next to title or subtitle like this.

    II. What is Drawboard PDF? PDF reader and annotator

    However, I can't track annotation when it's moving, so it's hard to locate annotation in exact area.

    https://youtu.be/qYhWOpWSCzY

    If there're way to track annotations, users can locate annotations to exact area, and save time.

    Please consider this idea.

    Thank you for reading.

  9. Using multiple colors in a textbox.

    For emphasizing, I usually change color of a important word in a sentence to red.

    However, there are no simple way to change color in a specific words in one textbox.

    At this time, I do that like this youtube link, but it's really cumbersome.

    Please consider this feature for students and users.

    Thank you for reading.

  10. Filter Sheets

    I usually only mark up several sheets in an entire set of drawings through out the course of a project so I hate having to scroll through the entire document just to find the 1 or 2 sheets I'm looking for. Is there a way to filter my sheets to just show sheets with annotations? And is there anyway to mark an annotation (or group of annotations) as complete? The whole point of this program for me is to track changes and the progress of those changes so those 2 features would be very useful.

    Thanks!

  11. Favorite tool sorting problem.

    Hi. I am a user who loves Drawboard.

    I am inconvenient because I do not have a function for favorite tool sorting. The current favorite tools are sorted chronologically. However, this causes the tools to be jumbled up.

    Automatic alignment is also fine, but I hope we can at least manually reorder the tools.
    Thank you.

  12. Grouping objects and storing

    I would like to sketch something and then select all the pieces of it and create a Group that can be stored for use in other PDF's.

    This would be particularly handy for repetitive items.

  13. Attach Pictures to PDF Documents

    I am an engineer and I use your product extensively in the field. I use your product to take field notes and I use my phone to take pictures. Unfortunately, when I get back to the office, it is not always easy to correlate the pictures to the notes on the pdf. Here is what would be great…If I could take pictures and assign them to a location on the PDF where I am taking notes. For instance, maybe I could hold my finger or pen at a location on the PDF and then a popup menu could give me…

  14. Allow to change the advanced menu bar position

    I use the favorites menu in the left because when I'm using the active pen sometimes I accidentally touch the right side of the screen with my hand (before the screen reacts to the proximity of the active pen). I wish I could have the advanced menu bar at the top or at the left of the screen instead of at the right side. I prefer the advanced menu over the radial menu because of my workflow and because neither the favorites menu nor the radial one is as complete as the advanced menu.

  15. Hide the rotation arrow boxes.

    Hello, I just upgraded Windows including a new version of Drawboard. Now, whenever I write, it shows little rotation arrow boxes in the lower-right of the screen. Those boxes block a bit of the bottom line of my text, which is awkward when teaching since I'm usually focused on the bottom line. Please have a way to hide those arrow boxes so they do not appear (just like you do with the magnification boxes, which I finally managed to hide which was great). Or, if there is already a way to do this, then please tell me (jeff@math.toronto.edu).…

  18. Let's set whether new documents should be displayed at the top or bottom.

    With the update version 5.8.90 (Windows 10), the order of newly opened files was reversed. Latest up. Please let us determine which order we would like.
    I always open first the files that are important and that I need the whole day and including those that I only partially need. In this way of working it is very valuable when the new files are down.

  19. Enable touchscreen support for scrollbar

    I can only use scrollbar with keyboard or mouse but sometimes I'm working in a touch-only mode and then it's unusable.
