Xodo: Tips for your device

Xodo can leap any PDF in a single bound!Xodo will give you the same great capabilities whether you’re using iOS, Android, or Windows 8 for touch devices. However, once you get into the nitty gritty, different mobile operating systems will provide a slightly different behavior when you start working with PDF files on Xodo. Here are some pro tips for using Xodo on the different platforms.

General tips for all devices:

  • From the Xodo Settings menu (or in the case of iOS, the iOS Settings App), you can set an Author name to be used with annotations. This helps reduce confusion when you’re collaborating with others.
  • If you are adding lots of annotations, you might want to turn on “Continuous Annotation Edit” mode from the Xodo Settings menu. This will save you from re-activating the same annotation tool over and over again.
  • If you like to email documents to friends from Xodo, you can customize a Xodo specific email signature. Look for the Email signature option in the Xodo Settings menu.
  • Press and Hold your finger, or stylus, on an empty area of a document to bring up the Annotation popup menu.
  • Use the “Annotations Outline” to quickly find and go to annotations anywhere in a document.
  • You can create a “My Signature” that you can reuse for signing form fields, or adding a signature to any document. Simply create a new Signature Annotation, and enable the option to save it as default.

iOS

  • When you open a Dropbox document in Xodo, any changes you make will automatically be synced with the online version.
  • You can edit local files and folders in Xodo by selecting “Edit”. When accessing files on Dropbox through Xodo, you can only edit files in Dropbox view.

Android

  • Can’t remember were you put a PDF? Select “Browse All PDFs” to see every PDF on your device. Maybe you will find a PDF you forgot about!
  • When you open a Dropbox document in Xodo, any changes you make will automatically be synced with the online version.
  • You can edit local files and folders in Xodo by “Long Pressing” on an item in a list. When accessing files on Dropbox through Xodo, you can only edit files in Dropbox view.

Windows 8

  • Quickly share a document with friends by opening the “Charms” bar and selecting “Share”.
  • And remember, you can split your screen to multi-task, such as copy text from Xodo to an email or another app on the same screen.
  • If you are working on a non-touch Windows device, Xodo supports the standard shortcuts for zooming in (Ctrl +) and out (Ctrl -) of documents. Or you can use the Mouse shortcuts (Ctrl + Mouse Wheel).

Xodo is the ultimate cross-platform PDF viewer and annotator.

  1. I’m using Xodo with a Toshiba Encore 2 8″ (2gb RAM, 64gb storage) and Windows 10 build 10130. When in tablet mode I cannot open any toolbars or menus. Works fine in desktop mode. Surely you’ll have a fix for this soon.
