  3. selectively disable straightening or rounding

    My hand drawn cures (letters, curvy integration symbol, edgy summation symbol(Sigma), or other random curves) are somewhat straightened, or the edges are rounded. This is done automatically by Drawboard.

    Sometimes I want to disable this feature. Please let users choose.

  4. image

    I would love to have the ability to allow user insert image but as an icon instead of the whole image. The image is just too big when I try to insert it onto pdf plan on the field. Instead, it will allow the user to just insert an icon and when the user clicks on the icon, it linked to the actual photo that was taken. it's also best if the icon is directional and allow the user to rotate so that it knows what angle the photos are taken.

  7. build multiple photos into a single pdf

    I take pictures/scans of handouts and notes for my students, and PDF's are the easiest way to make sure the documents are viewable. Some of my documents are multiple sheets long, and it would be nice to have some way to make single photos taken from my phone into a single PDF. Currently, I create a single pdf for each of my photos and merge them with the document creator--and this takes up some time.

    Thank you.

  8. Searchable Handwriting and Picture Content

    In my opinion being able to look up handwritten notes and text that is in pictures in OneNote is one of the programs biggest features.

    I am currently playing with the idea to switch from OneNote to Drawboard mainly to edit my documents for university but this is whats mostly keeping me from doing it.

    I think Drawboard can easily get a lot of OneNote users to switch if there were more features like this.

    (In addition it would be nice if the bookmark feature was improved :) )

  9. Measurement - Set the length of the measure and add to drawing

    The ability to set measurements length for adjusting drawings.

    Frequently I'm putting measurements on drawings to show offsets; currently clicking and dragging is not very precise.

    Ability to adjust measurements by editing the value and not using the handles.

  10. MAKE NOTES WITHOUT COPY PASTE

    i am a avid reader and a frequent and want to take notes of what i am reading to incorporate it into my writings. but sometime it become very hectic when you have to cut copy paste many things and that too if the pdf is very long.i came across a software named "AUTOCLIPX" where you can make notes just by selecting a required text. it automatically saves your text into notepad. if this feature is introduced it would be very much helpful for student like me.
    thanks

  11. Bookmark the page your on

    It would be great if you could bookmark the page you're on, rather than the page before the page your on. While it's an interesting gimmick, it's hard to take the app seriously as a productivity tool, let alone spend money on it.

  12. Change the Pan Selection Tool's Color

    I usually select the paragraph I'm currently reading.
    I find it quite difficult to read text that I have selected with the pan tool in Drawboard.

    The Yellow selection on this page, for example, would be awesome.

  13. Measure Angles

    Hello, will there by any chance ever be a possibility to measure angles or maybe to move the protractor and set its opquenes. I like the OneNote Style Ruler, it can be used a lot better to draw lines and measure Angles.

  14. Option for file locking of network files

    I understand that Drawboard PDF creates a local scratch copy of a file and only saves back to the original when the user saves. This is fine for us.

    We are using Drawboard with network files accessible to multiple users and it would be incredibly helpful if there were an option to enable Drawboard PDF to lock the network file for editing while a user has it open. We don't need simultaneous collaboration but I do need to keep users from trying to access the same file simultaneously, and accidentally overwriting each other. Similar to how multiple users can't both…

  17. page preloading, cache

    Page loading is long with high definition files. It needs a better surrounding pages preload (cache) for a faster page turning. Xodo has a great one.

  18. nearer open document button and wider(bigger) favorite tool bar

    I think if 'open new document button' is placed at there, it would be more favorable.

    And the favorite tool bar is too small, i want to expand it.

  20. Landscape vs. Portrait - wrong format for new pages

    Creating new pages, portrait/landscape is often wrong. E.g.: Add a landscape page to ppt slides, "landscape" gets me a "portrait" page!

    This was mentioned already here: https://drawboard.uservoice.com/forums/251835-features/suggestions/32171164-landscape

    It says "completed", but the bug/feature is still there!
