I did some work yesterday using Write on PDF on my Samsung S6 Lite tablet. Come this morning, and it didn't save. Bit of a nightmare. Anyway, I redid the work, but decided this afternoon to test out exactly how the saving works. It behaves very strangely!

I have uploaded a video (screen capture) to YouTube showing exactly the behaviour: https://youtu.be/ksfVwWm6iUY.

Basically, when I open with Write on PDF, it doesn't seem to save successfully. Instead, I need download it, open it up and write on it before saving. Even then, it saves some random stuff. The video hopefully makes this clear.

I want to open a PDF from a webpage (or app) in Write on PDF, do some writing on it, then save. How do I get this to actually save?

  • I would try to use a local PDF file, not one that is saved in Dropbox.

  • Sure. The point is to not have to download the file then open it with Write to PDF when there is the option there immediately. As you can see in the video, it clearly says Saved in Device Storage/Write on PDF (around the 29/30sec mark). I don't know why it saves without the annotations...
