Hi Gurse,

Thank you for using syncfusion products,

You can’t remove or customize the  viewer’s tool bar items in xamarin platform, the viewer preference applies only to the desktop based adobe PDF viewer applications. Because the viewer application have to read the viewer preferences from the document according that it can make change in viewer application’s tool bar or navigation bar so it is mainly depend upon the PDF viewer application , currently Adobe PDF reader in android doesn’t have this feature.

Please let us know if you need further assistance.

With Regards,
