  1. Pan tool cannot select inserted Signatures

    Hello,
    Since last updates, something that I have done multiple times, which is insert a signature to a document and then modify its position or size, now it is impossible. I cannot select the signature and I cannot do anything with it.

    This is very annoying and frustrating.

  2. As of 5.8.181.0, clicking out of a newly inserted text box now requires that you still have the text tool selected (before, pan tool could)

    The way to "finish" a text box entry should be any action taken outside of the box. Before I could use the pan tool and click out of the box to "complete" it. Now, I have to use the text tool to click out of the text box to complete it. If there is another way to do this, it isn't obvious.

  3. Embedded documents are not displayed correctly

    Hi there,
    I'm using Drawboard PDF to comment my professors slides. Unfortunately embedded documents (Excel, Word, etc.) are not displayed. There is just an icon of a flowchart. Other applications like Adobe can handle these documents directly inside the viewer.

    Any ideas here how to fix this issue?

    Thanks!
    Tilko

  4. The bookmarks didnt work well in some documents

    Hi the developers:

    When I tried to add an new bookmark in Adobe Acrobat, it appears normal, and it works well other pdf reader. But when I open it in Drawboard PDF, I cannot locate the correct page. It appears always the next page right behind my bookmarks. Some of my documents have this issue.

    When I tried to add bookmarks IN Drawboard PDF, the bookmarks works well at first. However, when I use 'Child of selected bookmarks' lable, this problem occurred again. Child bookmarks locate another page.

    My version is 5.8.170.0

    Best Regards.

  5. Low resolution when zoomin in plans

    Honestly, if the bug described already:

    "While working on larger Plans (normally A2, or A1), every time I move the plan or zoom out, the PDF displays a lower quality resolution. It takes several seconds (sometimes than 10s) to redraw the PDF in the requested resolution."

    will not be solved, then drawboard gets useless for me. Presentation plans for clients and working together is not reasonable.

  6. Long press, fast scrolling

    In previous versions when I long pressed right or left, pages started to scroll fast. Now I can just can go up or down by one page at time, even if I long press the key or I have "transition animation" activated or not. Is there any function I can enable to set it up like before? Thanks.

  8. Ink is edgy

    As you can see on the picture, the finger-written notes on Drawboard PDF are much more edgy than these from the windows ink sketchpad (which is found in the windows ink workspace). The option "Touch ink smoothing" was already activated, still the notes are very edgy.
    The same happens when writing with the pen. The windows ink sketchpad software smoothes the ink so much better. Can't you just take the same "smoothing software" for Drawboard PDF?
    This is not comfortable and other writing apps do this better. I'd like to stay with Drawboard PDF so please implement a better ink…

  9. Whenever I open Drawboard, the navigation menu and the advanced menu appear expanded.

    I typically open Drawboard by double clicking on a PDF (the lecture slides for a class). When I do so, the file opens, but both the "hamburger"/navigation menu on the left and the advanced menu on the right appear expanded. Which means, everytime I go to lecture, I need to close/mininize both of them so students can actually see the slides (see the attached screenshot).
    Is there any way to have both of these minimized by default?

  10. Cannot read more than one pdf files together

    I really like this software, but sometimes when I read the lecture file and tutorial file, it cannot put together for me to read. (that means the drawboard cannot display two pdf file togther) This point is inconvenient at all. Hope for the improvement.

  11. I can't purchase drawboard pdf pro

    I am a drawboard PDF user in South Korea.
    I tried to purchase drawboard pdf pro in app, but it won't let me purchase it.
    After accessing to my microsoft account, the page doesn't go on anymore. It's just stuck on the first loading page.
    After several minutes it shows an error page that it failed to load the page.
    I would like to purchase 90 days of access to pro version.
    I hope this problem gets solved
    Thank you.
    I am a windows 10 user.

  12. Annotations fuzzy and hard to read in other PDF programs

    Ink annotations made in Drawboard appear fuzzy and are hard to read in other PDF programs (like Acrobat). This makes it hard to share my annotations with colleagues, for example, who try to read them in Acrobat.

    If the annotations are edited in Acrobat, they revert to an easy to read not-fuzzy line. However, even this is difficult since Drawboard no longer groups pen strokes into a single annotation (as it used to). In any case it shouldn't be necessary.

    Other PDF annotating apps, like Xodo, manage ink annotations that appear perfectly normal in other programs.

    The issue was posted…

  16. Print omits background text

    This is undoubtedly a compatibility issue. I am trying to print from a Xerox AltaLink C8055. From Adobe Reader DC it prints fine, but from Drawboard the background text of the document is strangely omitted (see the documents on the right in the picture attached; the left are correctly printed through Adobe). Even more bewildering, it seems to print half of the music I am trying to print... literally... just the stems. I have had not problems like this before with any other printer. Adobe will flatten an image before printing; is this issue related somehow?

  17. I inquired last time, but there is no reply yet.

    I inquired last time, but there is no reply yet.
    I am attaching a sample photo.
    It's very useful.
    Hangul characters have been reduced and are difficult to use.
    I look forward to your prompt reply.

  18. CRASH: Upon closing tabs quickly

    I accumulate many open tabs (~40 .pdf files), and the program runs at a sufficient speed without crashing, until I go to clean up some of the open files. When I'm quickly closing my tabs by clicking the red or white 'x' (color depending on if new edits are saved), the program seems to crash on about every 1 in 5 files closed. The changes are saved when I reopen Drawboard, but it's just inconvenient.
