  1. No synchronization across devices

    I saved the documents on my surface go and stored it in one drive(business). When the system shows the synchronization finished, i opened the document (in one drive folder) on my laptop (Thinkpad P1 extreme) but my annotations didn't show up. The document is completely clean. I remember it works across different devices via one drive, so i was wondering if there is any bug now.

  2. Can't open file in Windows File Explorer if PDF is in a certain folder

    Clicking on a PDF in Windows File Explorer causes Drawboard to open -- but it only shows previously-opened files, not the PDF that was clicked. This occurs only when trying to open a file from C:\Users\[username]\Box\, or any subfolder of that.

    Files open normally from any other folder than above.

    Files from any location can be opened from within Drawboard.

    I'd tagged onto another person's similar issue regarding this. This seems unique enough that I started its own bug.

  4. Bookmarks not working as expected

    In version 5.8.130.0 often bookmarks won't show up in the bookmark list. They, however, are sometimes present when looking from Adobe DC. Open video to see the behaviour.

  5. Continuous scrolling using up/down arrow is not functioning

    I use Drawboard mainly to read my music scores. Recently I bought a bluetooth pedal page turner (Donner) but I now figure out that the continuous scrolling (keeping the key/pedal pushed down with the repeat switch on) is not recognized by Drawboard. I need to push and release the pedal (or arrow key) for every single scroll.This is a real show-stopper for me. The pedal is not defective because continuous scrolling works well in other applications (such as Word). I'm using Drawboard v5.8.130.0 on a Surface Pro 4.

  7. Text printing badly from editable fields

    When printing a document that has editable fields the text in the fields prints consistently bad. The same doc printed from a different pdf program prints just fine.

  9. overlapping UI elements

    When drawboard isn't running in fullscreen the UI elements on the bottom can overlap. The overlapped elements can't be used.

  11. search Chinese in pdf

    I search Chinese in .pdf, and get no results. but there are so many key words in file. It is probably a bug in searching Chinese.

  13. Red "close file" button and scrolling bar overlap

    Only the left half of "close file" button in Tabs drawer is clickable, if I try to click on the right half, I end up clicking on the scroll bar instead.

    (windows 10, latest version of the app)

  14. Drawboard can't open pdf portfolio files

    Drawboard cannot open PDF Portfolio files like the one attached to this message, while Acrobat Reader handles them easily. PDF Portfolio files are files that contain other files inside them, which could be PDF's or anything else. I am a lawyer and I get a lot of Court files that contain PDF portfolios, so this is important for me. Please resolve this issue asap.

  15. Tools saved to my favorites in the app, do not always remember my preferences

    For example, if I create a pen tool with 40% saturation, when I click on the favorite to use it, the saturation will be set at 50%. This issue (or some variation of it) happens with both pens and shapes.

  16. There is essentially no way to create a new bookmark between two existing bookmark

    There is essentially no way to create a new

    I tried adding new bookmark, click "after the selected bookmark" and nothing happens. There is no way to actually select a bookmark before I click it.

    If I choose "edit selected bookmark" and change the page number, nothing happens

    This is a giant **** up. If I want to add a bookmark to the middle of a list of existing bookmarks, the new one can only go to the top or the bottom. There is no way to put it in the middle.

  17. Drawboard frequently hangs while editing documents on Win10 MS Surface Pro4.

    With an open document, using the MS Surface Pro4 pen, highlighting text on a PDF form, using the pen to write on the screen, the app hangs. I have to click the X at top right, then restart the app. Usually it has saved up to the most recent 2-3 changes/marks I made on the page. I reopen and repeat the final changes and often it again hangs after a few. Help!

  18. Thumbnails Do Not Match Actual Pages

    I'm removing several pages from a PDF. The pages are easily recognizable by their common formatting. However after removing the first few pages and saving, when I enter edit document view I can clearly see that the first several thumbnails match the pages I just deleted - not the actual first few pages. This makes it impossible to pick out the right pages for deletion from within the edit document view. I would also complain that I can't zoom in tight enough in this view, but if the thumbnail is inaccurate zooming in is pointless.

    Very, very serious issue. Luckily…

  20. Working on a duplicated page affects the original and viceversa

    I created a pdf document with Drawboard (so you know it's not a random pdf document with weird formatting) and I use it as a class notebook. I just duplicated a page so I can take notes on the previous notes (corrections and such) and if I change the position of the elements on the original page or the duplicated, they change in the other. It's weird and annoying, as you can figure, because now my notes are a total mess. Worst of all this: there is no way to fix the notes unless I rewrite them and I'm not…
