Hello there,

 

If this is unrelated to dropbox, let me know and I'll delete this, otherwise plz fix, thanks.

Issue/Bug is pretty much in the title - PDF in DropBox - "Show tools" covers the "x" to close the search function - Hide Tools Mode.

This forces you into the 'show tools' mode just so you can close the search bar then go back into 'hide tools' mode.

Hi there,

 

This does look like a bug. We'll add this issue to the backlog and triage against other bugs.

 

In the mean time, you can close out the search bar with the keyboard short cut Command + F (mac) or Ctrl + F (PC) while you are still in the fullscreen mode.

 

Thank you for letting us know!

Hi @Frenzy69, welcome to our Community! 

 

Would you mind clarifying a few things for me, such as your OS, along with the platform you're using?

 

It seems that you use the Dropbox website in order to open your .pdf file, is this correct? Does this happen with a specific document or all of them?

 

Feel free to let me know more, and we'll take it from there.

 

Thanks a bunch!

hmm using pc:

Ctrl+F opens the search bar.

Ctrl+F again will just re-focus to the search bar.

Normally you'd press Esc - but this closes the document lol.

Thanks though
