Ratings and Reviews
Missing two important features!
I love this app. I’m already using it a lot to outline my project.
I have two requests for the developers’ consideration that would bring my review up to 5 stars.
Please give shapes an option to change the shape. It has been really frustrating getting something almost perfect and then realising I needed a slightly different shape and having to start over again. This keeps happening.
Also, please add a select box tool for multiple objects. It was far more frustrating finishing several sections and wanting to rearrange things or even to add a new section earlier on, only to realise that in order to move a whole section of different objects (or more!) I needed to do it one-by-one, object-by-object.
Thank you for taking the time to read and consider
Extremely Lagging and caused problem
At first it’s good, I made notes fluently. However, after using it more than an hour or so, it gets unbelievably laggy, I’m using iPad Pro 2020, I’ve never seen may iPad gets so laggy in an app. No matter writing, tapping, or even open and close the app, it was unbearably laggy in the app. I tried restart the device but eventually the app goes laggy again. When I copied and pasted one section of my notes to another section, it didn’t land in the place I wanted it to be but overlapped with my other notes weirdly, then I tried to move it away, BUT because it’s so laggy, the notes can’t even be moved. Then I reopened the app, and my notes just overlapped with each other and I can’t even withdraw my previous procedure. I’m very upset right now because my valuable notes that took me so long to finished just overlapped with each other without any solution. I am very disappointed and sad, and a bit angry. Not gonna use and trust this app anymore. Until the problem get fixed, which I wish so.
1 teensy thing about drawing
Hello!:) I love the app I use it mostly for drawing I look at this app as a mini pro create since that app is for money, just for the drawing tools I was wondering if u could add a paint bucket or something that can fill instead of the tool where u have to draw out the size of where u want to fill. Because every time I like to to use the tool to mark where I want to colour it would some times overlap certain parts of my drawings and in find it rather irritating have to draw out the filling. I would just like a tool to just fill one thing in one go if that’s ok. But overall the this app is very useful!
Please think about this one problem.
