Please add all of your ideas no matter how big or small. We are working hard to build the perfect app for reading, editing and managing your PDF documents.

Please DO NOT post bugs in this forum, please use the Bugs forum for this purpose.

  1. INK: Group annotations in annotation search/navigation menu (or bring back ability to group strokes)

    If I am annotating with pen, one page can have hundreds of strokes making searching/navigating through annotation search useless. Please bring back ability to group annotations, or (better yet), have a way of grouping annotations in the search/navigation menu.

  2. RGB Pen Colors

    I'm working my through seemingly every PDF editor in existence and the one thing that keeps my search going is that none of them allow arbitrary pen colors. I would love to know why this is such a standard, but I'd love even more for that standard to change.

  5. Snapshot selected area, copy/paste/cut.

    Hi I really love almost everything about drawboard, however Im using snapshot abilities in order to make it much easier in school work. From comments in many places I see a great demand fro it. I truly do not understand why you keep insisting on telling people to use the windows snip tool, you are literally forcing so many people into choosing different apps.

  7. Please add an option in "Save as (Advanced)" to save without annotations

    Please add an option in "Save as (Advanced)" to save without annotations. This helps me if I scribble/highlight etc on a large document and then I want to send to someone the original copy without my annotations.

  8. Insert circle with centre and radius

    I would like the ability to add a circle by choosing the centre then stretching the required radius. This would allow a circle to be centred correctly, rather than having to select the top corner of a rectangle and insert an ellipse defined by the four sides of the box that is drawn.

  9. Flip between common pages quickly

    It would nice if you could flip between two pages or really two views (or more) quickly. This is almost like having a "quick bookmark" icon on the page (maybe in the lower corner).

    For example - I look at a lot of plans and details. Usually what I end up doing is creating a file for plans and another for details, but what might be nice is if I could on the fly add a "bookmark" on a detail then go back to the plan and "bookmark" that location then click on the detail 'bookmark' to get back to…

  10. Ctrl + drag to copy

    Please add the ability to copy annotations by dragging with the mouse while holding Ctrl, as in for example Microsoft Word.

  11. Appearance of the radial menu after changing the view to another document

    With your newest update the radial menu appears per default extended when changing the view to another document - undependable if one has minimized it before. That is pretty annoying.
    If I minimize this menu I do it for a reason and if I'd need it, I could easily extend it by myself. Why would anyone need this feauture? I want the radial menu stay the way it is.
    I am certain the average Drawboard user makes with this new feature more clicks than before. This can't be a goal of the new update! Please change this.

  12. using cortana or search the web option!

    Would it be possible to implement Cortana search or search SELECTED WORDS with any search engine (google, Bing .. etc ) ?

  13. Add a ruler, not protractor.

    I know the protractor can be used as a ruler, and it's awesome already, but it's a bit clumsy to be used as a ruler. Windows Ink style ruler would be super useful.

  15. perimeter tool needed!

    Having a perimeter tool will help construction professionals (travel distances, perimeters of rooms, floor plan etc.) - currently you have to use multiple linear dimensions and then go and add up these dimensions to get the perimeter. This is time consuming and frustrating.

  16. Add ANSI paper sizes, or allow custom sizing

    It would be very beneficial to have the rest of the ANSI paper sizes (B, C, D, E). Size A = US letter, so that one is covered. Alternatively, allowing custom page sizing would solve any desired page option for all regions although with some loss in efficiency most likely if every new page needs to be set up as custom.

  18. Editing Pen Markup Color

    When editing pen markups there is an option to change colors however the colors given are not regular primary colors that match the original palette. Can you add the original colors to the edit. Thanks

  19. Hide Radial Menu and Advanced Tool Drawer

    I have limited screen real estate on my surface device, and so when I have drawboard open in one window, I really need to remove all the clutter from the window its in, so that I can read the whole document without having to zoom in and scroll around as I read. As such, I would very much like the ability to hide all of the tools off of the screen- as should be possible for all good document readers/editors.

    As you can see in the attched picture, hiding the Radial Menu by opening the Advanced Tool Drawer just makes…

    Hi,

    Thank you for elaborating on your request from the “have option to make the tool ring disappear from screen” request.

    What you are essentially asking for is a reading mode. I completely understand the desire and need for that.

    The reason why we did not implement that in the Advanced Tools Drawer release, is mainly due to the fact that the vast majority of our users, use Drawboard PDF for markup and annotation nad

    We are definitely open to a reading mode in the future.

    If I am misrepresenting your view. Please write to me at support@drawboard.com and we can chat further! We do appreciate the feedback and always look to take it on as best we can, and with what is in line with our strategy going forward.

    Best

    Mitch

    Drawboard PDF Product Manager

  20. Edit existing text in pdf

    On the pdf file, I would like to edit existing text. For example, add/remove words in a sentence. Change word formatting etc...
