Re: Sidebar panes (such as Bookmarks) are not usable with touch

Preferences screen, Customize Toolbars screen and probably most other areas of the app also suffer from touch scrolling issues.
I hope didn't sound too negative, since I really appreciate PDFX, your quick responses and the hard work you all do.

Anyway, I'm looking forward to the improvements.

Re: Sidebar panes (such as Bookmarks) are not usable with touch

I found another issue.

With the device in portrait mode, during fullscreen, initially, 1 finger scrolling through documents doesn't work, until after you do a 2 finger scroll. And even then, it stops working after a while.

Sidebar panes (such as Bookmarks) are not usable with touch

PDF-XChange Editor, Version 7.0 (Build 327.1). Dear developers, I was very excited to hear about the touch improvements you added last year, but was very disappointed with the eventual implementation. Since I got my Surface Pro, I sadly had to switch away from PDFX as my daily driver. Here are the m...

Hiding Menu Bar doesn't work anymore in V7

I would also prefer to get rid of any UI Chrome around the document area. Ideally I would like a more functional fullscreen mode with auto-hide ...

Re: Request for availability of PDFX in the Windows Store

I only use the regular non-plus version of PDFX which has all the features I need and is already free. What I meant is that I would pay for this non-plus regular version if it were in the Windows Store.
And with a fitting UWP UI, there would simply be no competition to PDFX in the Windows Store.

Re: Request for availability of PDFX in the Windows Store

The barrier of trying and purchase is much lower in the Store, since everything is in one place and installing and updating is much more convenient. I would pay for the non-plus version in the Store.
Anyway, even just having PDFX as AppX outside the Store would be nice.

Yes - the current layout will also remain available - and you will be able to switch between the two! Will the Ribbon have a collapse mode, so that it auto-unhides when you click on the menu, and auto-unhides when you click away? I would also like a minimalistic read mode, with an auto-hide/unhide ...

With the UWP Desktop Bridge, you don't have to rewrite much, and you will only have to maintain a single code-base.
