  1. I would like to choose which notebooks / documents get synced through iCloud. I have plenty of documents on my iPad that I don't want to have on my iPhone. Things like PDF manuals or PDF presentations that I just can't use on the smaller iPhone screen.

  2. We should be able to go to links (hot!) in our browsers. The attachments: in the first one, I've copied the link to the source document. If link us live, I can go to my source document to click on links there (this would be the minimum). In the second attachment us the entire pdf with all its highlighted links....which currently go nowhere. We should be able to click on all of these and go to those links.

  5. Adding the shapes tool and others. As a student with classes in physics and calculus I use the shapes tool frequently and there's a delay in my efficiency when I have to leave my sight line in the zoom window to go up to the main toolbar.

  6. We can currently only print all pages or print 1 page, but I have lengthy notebooks with my math homework for instance, but I don't know the number of the page my homework starts on, I would like an option in addition to Print all and print this page, that would print starting from my current page. Sure its possible to scroll through the notebook and select the pages you actually want, but as I get further into the term, my notebooks get longer and longer and this becomes more and more tiresome.

  7. As part of my workflow, I am quite regularly wanting to insert a new page with just parts of what is on on my current page.

    There are two ways I can accomplish this at the moment:


    1. Open the multi-page view, tap edit, select the current page, tap copy, tap done, tap +, tap the + in a circle where I want to insert the page, tap "Paste Copied Pages", tap done, select my newly inserted page, use the lasso tool to select the parts of the pages I do not want to keep, and delete them.


    2. Use the lasso…

  12. It would be nice to be able to move an image, text box, etc behind or in front of another (to place previously written text on top of a newly imported photo, for example), rather than having to cut and paste to change the order. An opacity tool might accomplish the same thing.

  13. Having stickies that can be pasted on pages - particularly PDFs - would be fantastic. Notes could be made then moved around the page. The more these echo real-life stickies, the better.

    (The ability to export notes made on stickies would also be most welcome.)

  14. Ability to sync using Google Drive rather than iCloud. Right now you can only backup to Google Drive. There should be seamless integration with Google Drive (similar to PDF Expert.)

  15. I'd like to be able to position the task bar on the side or bottom. I'm a lefty and hook my hand around a lot. The hand position setting works okay with palm recognition on the page itself, but because my hand comes around from the top, I still bump into the controls on the toolbar.

  16. default highlighter brush style is round pen.

    please ad sharp corner pen style to highlighter too.

  17. Sometimes to sketch things out letter or DIN A4 are to short, so it would nice to have endless paper (like OneNote). Which you can scale if you need to print it out. Or have something like 4 DIN A4 papers which fit together with tesa strip.

  19. I like that there are a fair amount of colors to choose from, but it would be nice to have some way to make and save custom colors. Perhaps some sort of a color wheel.
