Can't exit full screen mode on iPad

Can't exit full screen mode on iPad

Hello,

 

For viewing a PDF document, entering full-screen mode on the iPad is easy, but I can't figure out how to bring back the side bar with the menus.

 

Thanks for any help!

Ah, I see: you first have to tap anywhere in the document, this brings up the title bar, then you have to tap again on the upper left corner of the title bar. Quite tricky... @druidbox: you might want to make this more intuitive...

Thanks for your reply, but it doesn't work for me. It only brings the upper title bar, but not the left side bar...

Tapping the top left seems to work occasionly but not on on an older iPad. Dropbox please fix this.

Hi sunnydmt,

The fix will be in version 88.2 which went out today. The update will take a few hours to propagate though.
