    By the way Drawboard PDF crashes when trying to import the same PDFs that Xodo handles without a hitch.

    Interesting. I have both as well but prefer Drawboard. Never really had any problem with opening PDFs in either program.

    I might have said it before, but I prefer Xodo writing in it feels more natural than Drawboard PDF for me

    Ha, I found a file that both Drawboard and Xodo choke on. 9._Aldehydes_and_ketones.pdf
    Generally speaking, though, both Drawboard and Xodo have excellent PDF-handling capabilities. Thankfully with "print to PDF" fixing these files can be done in a click.

    https://www.pdfannotator.com/en/ has been a great app for me for a long time.

    Xodo looks pretty interesting. I downloaded the Windows desktop version.

    So far I like Xodo the best. They have the best pdf ink app in Galaxy Note too.

    I hope there is a PDF App that can handle 4 pages facing views (I have the 28" Surface Studio, which is larger enough to display four pages side by side), and can ink at the same time. So far, I found only Foxit Reader can do that, but the inking is horrible.

    Good inking apps (Xodo, Revu, Drawboard, PDF Annotator) only offers two page view side by side. Sigh...

    Just found out that Adobe Acrobat CC supports inking and eraser on the Surface Pen!

    Great times for us inkers, folks!

    Interesting point, hadn't considered that before, but obviously the opportunity is there and I'm sure others will support it, they just need to be made aware of the opportunity. Four pages at a time will give you much better overview and opens up new modes for working with documents.
