  • (2020-04-16) 집어린이: someone please help me how to uninstall this app. this app is so annoying and I don't know how to use it and I don't wanna know either. I clicked remove from the chrome and it never works. I clicked least 100 times and I'm getting stress while reading my document cuz I wanna make new copy and there are no buttons that allow me to do, idk y google allow this application
  • (2020-04-16) BTSISMYJESUS: It won't leave my computer. And when I tried to log into my school account it randomly installed. Yeah, I hate this a lot. And get this off of my computer.
  • (2020-03-26) casey mahoney: An overall great tool in dealing witth the many PDF viewings you may nhave on a daily basis.
  • (2020-03-05) L Galland: It wants to be able to download ALL my drive documents. That's a hard no from me buddy.
  • (2020-02-27) Nathan Danopi: it doesn't work,considering my school FORCEFULLY installed it, and can't remove it. it interferes with Read Write. Considering in the past of me, i must say that PDF reader's are quite unsafe. it asked for these permissions: -Read and change all your data on the websites you visit -Communicate with cooperating websites -Know your email address -Manage your apps, extensions, and themes -Know your location But what i'm most concerned is why does a PDF reader need my location, and my email address. I cannot trust this, and it shouldn't need to do that much access. -Nathan Danopi

  • (2019-09-10) kazibadema kalim: It exactly what i wanted perfect.
  • (2019-08-04) Matheus Oliveira: It doesn't work, neither from web PDF files nor from PDF files in my computer. By choosing the file in the Windows Explorer and opening it in the browser, the extension simply keeps loading the URL - and most times changing the local file's name.
  • (2019-05-21) IndominusRexxx: After I installed it, I couldn't UNinstall it.😒👎
  • (2019-02-16) Tayyab Ikhlaq: works but improvements needed
  • (2019-01-28) John Taggart: Okay first of all it won't work Second of all R&W, even after I uninstalled it, made it mandatory to install this PDF reader. Yeah remember Bonzi Buddy
  • (2018-09-05) Jeff Greaves: Best tool I have seen when it comes to PDF's in Google. Love it.
  • (2018-08-31) David Hankin: Works great!
  • (2018-08-30) Nora Trentacoste: Easy to use once you get the hang of making sure you have full rights to an accessible PDF. You'll get a suggestion to scan with snapverter if the document is not accessible. Just follow the prompts, and you'll be reading and annotating PDFs in no time. I love using the highlighters to pull key information out of complex documents and make action lists.
  • (2018-08-30) Mark Wheeler: Great extension for PDF's
  • (2018-08-25) Conscious Queens Books Club: I was excited to use this app and it will not work. When I follow the directions and try to open a pdf from Drive, it just keeps telling me to sign into my account. Will not open the book at all.
  • (2017-11-27) Nylah Palmer: It's okay because it won't open
  • (2017-10-19) Dido Heath: I love the idea of this app but it does not work! It blocks me opening any pdf in google docs with a blank page and a blue line that makes me think it's going to work... but nothing happens.
  • (2017-10-05) Mark Zacharias: Doesn't open online docs and because my administrator doesn't allow me to change any settings is a completely useless program.

  • (2017-09-18, v:1.0.92) Google classroom
    I am a resource teacher and some of the students I work with have a google classroom that has the textbook as a pdf. However, Read and Write will not read it so I added the pdf reader extension and it is still not working. It will read all the other information such as notes and assignments but not the textbook. Thanks and I look forward to hearing from you.
  • (2017-09-14, v:1.0.92) Julie Entz: Google slides and word predict
    I have a student who wants to edit the teachers notes he gives her in slides as she follows along in class. She doesn't want to use the voice tool and draw attention to herself so she want to use the word predict but it won't work in slides. Even if it could work in the note section of Google slides this would really help! Thanks

    The text reader opens up and then we get an red error bar that pops up on the top of the page. See details below: PDF.js v1.0.92 (build: 801881e) Message: Unexpected server response (403) while retrieving PDF "https://www.googleapis.com/drive/v3/files/0B9khdQKMglW9RkI1RnAzdVE0Q0U?alt=media". Your help on this matter is appreciated ASAP.

    Our students are blocked from installing apps and extentions unless explicitly allowed but I cannot find Texthelp PDF Reader in the Chrome Web Store except for when I am doing an install. I need the info to be able to force install for users and / or allow them to install. Please help.
  • (2017-09-11, v:1.0.83) Bridget Albers: deleted text
    I had worked on filling in a PDF. I am a teacher and over the summer my extension was deleted. After I have re downloaded it, my work is gone. Is there no way to recover my work? Another extension I have used, Kami, had saved my work.

  • (2017-08-29, v:1.0.55) Christina Froehlich: No PDFs will open from Drive
    Each time I attempt to open a PDF, the reader shows itself and then I get a blank screen. You can see the address in the bar, starting with https://pdf.texthelp.com/pdfreader/ and then the rest of the url, but nothing is showing. I tried uninstalling, but then I am prompted to add the extension.
  • (2017-05-04, v:0.2.8) Jared Sargent: toggle default
    Would like to know how to toggle between using texthelp pdf viewer and adobe acrobat as the default viewer, without always enabling or disabling in chrome's extension settings.
