Viewer mode PDF (Android)

PDF files are automatically opened in Viewer mode. This mode lets you view documents with minimal interference from the interface. To enable editing, tap on the  Editor icon to enter Editor mode.

When in Viewer mode, to toggle the interface, tap anywhere in the document. You can browse between pages with vertical swipes, and zoom in and out of the interface with a pinch gesture.

At the upper right corner of the screen you'll find options to share the document, these are detailed in our separate Sharing Options topic. The third icon on the top right will open the Contextual menu providing a wide range of options for viewing documents:

Save any changes made to the PDF in its current format.
Save as in another location.
Print the PDF using a networked printer.
Find instances of entered text. You can browse between results using the left and right arrows.
