    • Create folders within notebooks

      To be able to organise pages into sub folders 'within' each notebook would be very useful.

      • 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.

        • Use TouchID to Secure App

                Add a pencil tool that acts and looks like a real pencil (compatible with all the capabilities of the Apple Pencil).

                • 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.

                  • 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. The margins aren't big enough to fit, but adding a whole blank notes page is too large (I use an iPad Pro).

                    I request a feature for having a color indicated "sticky note" that fits on either side of the margins and can be placed anywhere alongside it. Tap the little box, and the expanded note comes into view with various options for…
