  1. ROTATE highlighted notes and drawing!

    I would love to be able to rotate highlighted notes and drawings. For example, if I draw a diagram of a cell, I would love to be able to rotate that diagram for use in another location.

      • Add 2 and 3 finger tap shortcuts for undo and redo like Procreate

        Using the Apple pencil is really cool, but I find that undoing and redoing is really annoying using the toolbar at the top. Having a feature like in Procreate to undo with a 2 finder tap and redo with a 3 finger tap would make taking notes much more fluid.

          • lasso tool to copy and paste PDF text, images, graphs, etc

            This option to have lasso tool to be able to copy, paste, and move existing text, images, graphs, any visuals that are important would be simply amazing.

              • Move pages to another notebook.

                Is there a way to move pages from one notebook to another? When inside a notebook it would be great if I could go into the edit menu, select pages and then click on 'move' and then select the other notebook to send them to. This would help keep things organised.

                • ability to scale and rotate

                  Sometimes we need to scale hand-written notes to be the same size and rotate to fit different templates. Same holds true for images.

                  • Additional fonts

                    First of all great app. Very clean, very easy to use. Any chance we could a slightly larger variety of fonts to choose from? a couple of fonts that have a hand written appearance would be nice. My disability prevents me from actually writing, I copy and paste charts and information onto the pages, then type over them with my own notes.

                    • Full synch with iCloud or Dropbox

                      I typically need to work on the same document in multiple devices. For example, i may annotate a pdf at home using my iPad but at work I may need to read the annotated pdf in my laptop. Would be great to have full synch using iCloud Dropbox or similar services

                      • Add a pencil tool

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

                          • Whiteboard mode - Or endless papersize

                            Actual the size of the paper is fixed.
                            But nevertheless that I use A0 I am limited during Brainstorming and other creative workshops. Therefore I must use another tool (Zoomnotes). But this is not helpful at all to switch from tool to tool.
                            Is there a chance in the near future to implement a more to enlarge the size of the paper endless?

                            • Easy undo gesture

                              A two finger double tap for undo and a three finger double tap for redo would be great. Quick and easy gesture for undoing and redoing

                              • More Text box capabilities

                                I would like more options on what you can do with the text box. Such as:

                                1) ability to have two different writing styles in the same text box (red and black, bold and regular)
                                2) An indent button
                                3) maybe even a whole different text box for bullet points, lists, and things of that sort

                                  • Better typewriting support. I mean paragraph text and not just a grotty text box.

                                    A separate button next to the “pens” for typewriting. This would entail being able to type normally wherever we tap on the page to create an insertion point. This would also contemplate minimal text styling; bold, italic, underline, several colours and the ability to change font and/or font size for any given part of the text.

                                    • Dropbox sync

                                      You definitely have to include the Dropbox sync function as realized in goodreader. this would be essential!
                                      And I'm convinced a bunch of people will be willing to pay more for your app
