  1. Horizontal scrolling is needed to some people

    Some people want to use horizontal scrolling because some document have long height and short width. Generally the monitor of desktop or laptop has horizontally wide screen. I'm very satified of this app and more want more people use this app conveniently. Thank you.

  2. insert image at a specified size to save time resizing on a page

    Insert image at specified size to save time resizing on a page
    Example:
    Prespecify image size 2.5 inches in height
    Then import image and it is automatically sized to that heght with the width governed by the proportions of the image.

    One could fill out report pages much faster

  3. Default area measurements

    I could be missing this somewhere, but it would be excellent to allow default units for the different measuring tools. For instance I would like all my linear measurements to default in MM, but all my area measurements to default in M2. At the moment I have to do all my linear measurements for MM, then re-calibrate to do my areas in meteres squared measurements.

    Hi

    Are there any "how to start with Drawboard" tutorials available? I have looked on your site and there are tutorials for using a specific feature but I am looking for something more generic, that I can use, to show and learn how I can incorporate Drawboard into my workflow. I see mention of Youtube Videos but I can't find a link. A youtube search brings up some results but not from Drawboard PDF (you guys)
    I am using a new Surface Book2, purchased specifically for markup of site plans when I'm on site.
    Regards & Thanks

    Robert

  5. Rotate controls for when in tablet "portrait" mode

    When in tablet mode you can rotate to display in portrait mode rather than the default landscape.

    This makes it feel more like reading and annoying the paper document.

    Would be a great usability feature.

  8. Adjust wheel position when rotating display

    Have the wheel some distance from the edge of the screen when rotating the display on a tablet. I use a Surface Pro (Windows 10, 64-bit). When I rotate to portrait view, the wheel is often 'stuck' at the edge of the screen. When I touch the wheel to move it, it is so close to the edge that it activates the swipe-from-right that shows notifications.

    The only way I've found to deal with this is to rotate back to landscape, put the wheel in the center of the page before rotating.

  10. Replace page

    Ability to replace pages with new revisions in a document without losing any bookmarks. I've tried merging then rearranging, also tried rearranging and deleting pages prior to merging. Every result has ended in losing the bookmarks and having to go back through and resetting every bookmark after the point of where the new page is inserted/replaced.

  11. finger actions (add an erase feature)

    I would like to be able to draw with my pen (which I can do) and set a different action for one finger (erase). Under the Settings/Touch menu, add another option to "Use touch to annotate" or "Use touch to erase". Two fingers would have to be used to scroll and zoom.

    I've used this functionality in other apps on my iPad and found it to be a much more natural way to erase than flipping my pen.

  12. Lack of Plug-Ins

    A upgraded feature like handling bookmarks, better page manipulating and pdf sorting is missing several years.

    For example handling bookmarks: The first post about it is from 2014. Over 40 People replied over the Years. Five years later, still no improvement.

    Many of us rely on Drawbord, because it’s the best Windows Pen PDF Creator, BUT....

    You should consider making Plug-Ins open source.

    In therms of updating the App, you guys really suck! I really, cant understand how a reasonable feature report with 200 backs sits on a shelf for 5 years.

    There are many programmers out there who’d like…

  13. Adding "flatten" to favorites bar

    I love the favorites bar, but there are limits to what can be added, I'd like to be able to quickly "FLATTEN" all objects by clicking it on the favorites bar as opposed to hunting through the "..." menu.

  14. Please add a Flatten and Email option ..

    With not API or custom button options, it would be nice to have this feature added.

    We do field inspections and once we email the forms to the office, we should lock that file down by flattening it, right now it requires two menu clicks to flatten all.. and then 3 menu clicks to email the files, that time adds up, .. a simple flatten and email button would be great!

  15. Squiggle Line

    I use a squiggle line a lot in my work and would like the ability to create a squiggle line or have one as an option. Also, it would be great to have the snapping option in order to help connect and draw straight lines quickly.

  16. Image insert position

    When you insert an image, it will be displayed in the center of the screen.
    If this can be displayed at any position of drawboard pdf,
    You do not have to move the image after insert.

  19. 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.

  20. 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…
