  1. Is it possiable to auto load xfdf file?

    I hope to save pdf document and annotations in different files. It is awosome to find drawboard pdf can import/export xfdf files.

    However, i have some trouble in use it. It may be better like this:

    When I open a a.pdf, auto import a.pdf.xfdf.
    When I click save, auto save the annotations to the a.pdf.xfdf.

    May be can add "File separation mode" for different users?

  2. iOS version of Drawboard

    iOS version that can be synced via a cloud to view on an iPhone or IPad (Microsoft teams is what I currently use, but I have to upload a new pdf every time I update the drawing set). I currently use Drawboard in the field on my surface as a construction manager/field engineer. I would love to see it integrated to iOS at some point in the future. I can only imagine the cost to get this approved and in motion, but think it would help expand client base for this wonderful app. I recently upgraded to pro, and love…

  3. Modify annotations and add note without highlighting

    It would be cool to modify annotations - the type (underline, yellow highlight, squiggly line, etc. or create our own) and text selected - without deleting the original, selecting text, and choosing a different highlight/underline, and make notes without separately highlighting first. This would streamline user experience and make annotating a whole lot faster.

  4. Simple request. Pressing Ctrl+f also puts focus on the search field.

    Its simple request. Its annoying to press ctrl + f and then click on the search field.

    If I pressed ctrl+f its expected I want to find something

    All browsers and pdf readers have this functionality

  7. Add a drafting triangle for easier use in details (compared to the protractor)

    I make a lot of structural sketches of details. On paper, I use a drafting triangle for straight lines and measurements. It would be nice to have that option in Drawboard pro as well.

  8. About input Word

    The latest version of DrawBoard PDF cancels the position size shift of the edited text under the function of inserting text. The size, position, font size and font color of the pre-edited text box often need to be adjusted, resulting in the need to switch to the mouse movement function to operate, which is a little troublesome.

    Hopefully, with the function of inserting text, you can adjust the size, position, font size and font color of the text box by clicking the mouse, and double-click can edit the text.

  10. It would be very useful to be able to automatically copy/paste a selected text into a word document or email

    It would be very useful to be able to automatically copy/paste a selected text into a word document or email with a new tool that would avoid having to actually copying and pasting

  11. Suggestions for optimizing startup speed

    I have a little suggestion here, since most of the time we just use the app as a reader, there is no need to load all the editing components every time we open the app. Therefore, the startup speed of the current version will be a bit slow. Is it possible to dynamically load these components when needed, or to add a read mode switch to enable faster opening of the document each time?
    Thank you

  12. Could you support Traditional Chinese in the feature?

    I very like this app. There is one fly in the ointment, Language Setting is no Traditional Chinese. If you need someone to help translate it, you can discuss with me.

  13. Movable partially enlarged window

    After zooming in on the pdf file, it is more convenient to use the writing function, but due to the screen size problem, you cannot see other parts of the file while writing. I think I can develop a partial magnification window that partially enlarges the file and can be written in the window. This feature is available on IPad software such as GoodNotes, PdfExpert. If Drawboads can be developed, it would be better.

  16. The location of the menu that pops up after selecting the text

    why not the menu is just next to the selected target. now it's the bottom of the screen, every time need to move very far after the selection to touch the option bar.

  17. Create a designated bookmark section.

    The bookmark support in this app is very weak and could be really more advanced.

    As bookmark manipulation can be complex, I recommend creating a dedicated section like the one for the pages.
    Or you could fix the one already present, and add missing features like reordering (with drag or right clicks).

  19. Bullet points and numbering for typing

    I’m in dental school and I love drawboard! It’s so easy to annotate my powerpoints and articles. However, When I’m typing my notes from scratch, there’s no way to add bullet or number listings to outline my notes. Is it possible to add this as a feature?

  20. My palette could't work well when I choose the color.

    After the beginning of this year, my palette couldn't work well. When I change black to white and turn back to main palette, it still showed black but I can write in white color. This problems confused me a lot. The same problem happened on the green one, too. Please let me know what's happening? Thanks.
