Make Android onedrive pdf viewer better or remove it
Trying to work with pdfs stored on onedrive through the Android app is incredibly frustrating.
There is a giant black bar at the top with nothing other than a back button and a large orange circle for annotation tools. This makes seeing the pdf very hard as these UI elements get in the way.
Also there is no search capability.
Either make this viewer better or remove it so we can use some other android pdf viewer. Actually we should be able to use any other pdf viewer and there is no way to do so currently and this actively hurts the onedrive app as a document storage application.
Thanks for the report and please check out the latest update. It should be much improved!
Why can't I undo or erase annotations made on the onedrive's PDF viewer... seems a ridiculous oversight to me.

I still cant highlight in the android pdf editor if the text is not recognized. How do I set onedrive to use zodo editor as the default and allow it to save back to drive?
how do I unblock my Microsoft account from pdf viewer?
trying to use the annotation functions in onedrive PDF viewer, made a mistake and couldnt go back to erase / undo / correct. please add the undo / erase function or the annotation is useless or even damaging to use
I use the WPS office app to view and highlight pdfs in OneDrive. It is able to link to OneDrive.

OK, a giant sticking top bar is now gone and open with another app is back as of the last update. Thx MS.
They fixed it with latest Android update!
Urgend, please fix this bug. Makes onedrive useless for me.
It must be fixed!
What a step backwards. Very limited PDF reader now
Please add back the option "open with". In the meantime, I moved my files to Google Drive, otherwise I cannot work any more.
Yes, with the previous version I was able to open pdf files with other apps (there was an option for that).
With the new version it's impossilbe!
Please fix that!!!!

This is crucial. Needs to be fixed.
This is a major one: it makes saving PDFs for reference and reading on OneDrive miserable, if not useless.
