  1. I would like to use TouchID to both open the app (a la Dropbox) and/or individual notebook TouchID verification.

  2. 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…

  4. 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

  5. Great App!!!
    I use the Zoom Windows to write notes. I encode items like reminders and events with title, date time, list name, and people using delimiters such as '#today$Buy some milk€Shopping' for a reminder or '$Risk meeting for ProjectX#23/7/18t12h30-13h00@Me;Email.address@domain.com' for an event. I then select the writing using the Lasso Tool to convert to text. I then share this text with Workflow extensions I have created which parses the examples into a reminder or event etc. It works great ;-)
    A long-shot... but... Could you create a button which lassos the area between the top and bottom…

    Definitely a very interesting idea but quite complex and probably only relevant for very tech-savvy power users. We’re not sure but maybe it is already doable using Shortcuts, as other apps can read the converted text.
