  2. Option to convert whole page/note to text

    It would be great to have shortcut that converts a whole page or note to text with having to use the laso tool. Further, the text should then be automatically pasted into a duplicate page following the converted handwritten page(s) or or possible a duplicate note for whole note conversions.

  7. Add a page counter

    A page counter would be fine. As of now the only way to know where exactly you are on a document is to open the thumbnail feature. If the page number were displayed (maybe as an in/out option) it would save us a good deal of time.

  8. Add a small, but expandable sticky note that can be placed in margins and uses the text zoom interface.

    Often the pdf documents have ~1" margins and there have been paragraphs that I would either like to add my own commentary, create a small sketch of an idea, or note an idea related to the material.

  10. Additional colors

    You have given us access to 3 additional colors, I would like to have a minimal of 8-10 accessible colors on the zoom in bar when writing. I color code while taking notes and although 3 is a great start we should be able to add as many colors allowed on this tool bar area. Please see attach file below
