  1. There are many PDF files whose page sizes are not A4 or A3-This kind of the standard size. This causes a problem when importing PDF, which is that the pages added to the document are not the same size as the PDF pages imported. Therefore, I think the imported document should be zoomed when it is displayed. For example, when the page is turned vertically, all the pages should be displayed in the same width, and the standard size of the page should be selected when exporting Pdf.

  3. I want to be able to add shortcuts to certain notebooks so I can get to them faster. I know I can use stars but then they are all in the same location. I want to add shortcuts in different folders.

  4. When selecting text or highlight lines and changing the colours, only the pen color presets are available. It would be great if there was a tab to switch to the highlighter color presets.

  5. Would like a button or similar feature when naming a notebook or folder. I create multiple notebooks weekly and like to have the date as apart of the name. Need a quick way to do it.

  6. The text is too long (take screenshot, resize, color...).
    Instead, show icons. Most these keywords have agreed icons (copy, cut, delete, color, resize).

    At least, when viewing two notebooks open side by side, showing icons in a must because one cannot even see the whole lasso menu, making choosing an action even more time consuming.

  7. Ability to condense power point slides into one, in order to alleviate the storage usage of the document but also to make finding the slides much more streamlined.

    Meaning multiple slides(3 or more) would be put on one page in a slightly smaller version of the original in order to avoid having to scroll through lets say 90 slides or more.

  8. It would be a great addition to the app if you, make it to where you press something to get to notebooks or when you have just a quick note you press something to get there. Where the notebooks are is not organized or appealing. I feel you should press something to get there but opening right up to it. it feels cluttered and not organized.

  10. Instead of the new mirror mode and presentation mode, the old display button should come back since multiple apps can be used w/o the screen shifting and allows more control during presentations. I lecture in front of 1~200 people and use a mixture of apps.

    I need the control so that I can seamlessly zoom in and out on key info without making people feel sick and use apps without having to readjust the screen all the time. Afterall, this is an app for the ipad.

    Everything is done thru finger input and pen so the current mode is not…

  12. Presenting pdf slides on the iPad is important when screencasting lectures. Usually, animations are implemented by advancing pages seamlessly in the pdf file. Presenting such pdf slides is possible in full-screen presentation mode on an external screen using flip-book style page transitions. During screencasting, a flip-book style scroll mode on the iPad screen would allow the pdf animations (or any other prepared flip-book style animations) to appear correctly in the screencast.

    Alternatively, support screencasting directly using the options from presentation mode on the external screens, i.e., screencasting with audio what one would see on the external monitor.

  13. The lasso tool grabs either the picture or the converted text, unpredictably. Using it with other apps (Keynote presentation), the sketch is what I want, the text is unusable. A choice from the right click would be a smart solution, “copy, graphic” or “copy, converted”

  19. It would be awesome that there was a tool to help us Center things. That marks half the page both in vertical and horizontal.

  20. Right now, the maximum pen size is only 2mm. It would be nice we could have a way bigger size limit like all the way up to 1cm for example.
