Add bookmarks to pdf files in iOS app

Add bookmarks to pdf files in iOS app

Aaron D.16
New member | Level 1

I use the mobile app to read a lot of saved pdf documents that I enjoy having access to across platforms. As a teacher, I need to bounce back and forth between different pdf documents often (textbooks, workbooks, printables, etc.). It is quite a hassle to have to browse through each of these each time I open them to find where I left off. 

Feature request: add a bookmark icon on iOS that allows the user to jump to the specified page easily. This will allow the app to be a full replacement for apps such as iBooks or Amazon Kindle.

I use Dropbox mainly to share and view pdf documents, rather than opening separately in an other app such as PDF Expert, because of the way that it is easy to navigate through large documents using bookmark indexing.  The bookmark icon is now missing from the options at the bottom corner of the document, I think following an update.  Can you please let me know if this facility has been removed?

Thanks

Hi there,

Sue - v4.2.1 was released today (Dec 15th) and has the fix for the missing PDF outline button. It's back! Let us know if you're still running into an issue. Thanks for your patience in the meantime, and for posting to our community!

Aaron - the app is currently supposed to reopen PDFs to where you last left off, are you no longer seeing this? That said, noting your feedback specific to being able to jump to specific pages and passing along to the team!

I would like to know how to bookmark a page please.  Its VERY aggravating to have to page back and forth to find the correct place.

Thanks
