  1. Backup notes without cloud services and without Root

    With multiple Android devices I need to backup and also move notes from device to device and from device to a local NAS.

    • There are many reasons to NOT use cloud services for such tasks, as they are inherently insecure. The cloud is a NO-GO for any serious user.
    • Rooting my devices is also a NO-GO too.
    • The ADB backup is again a NO-GO as it doesn't allow for selective backup and/or restore.

    Please simply add the ability to save and load notes from SD card, be it internal or external. This also avoids the problem of notes eating up…

    We’ve added default zoom values you can set in the settings for both fixed size pages and infinite pages. You can also fit to width/height/screen or quickly jump to a specific zoom level from the zoom popup. All these features are available in Papyrus 1.0 (available now in Google Play). Please feel free to continue providing your feedback here or submit new ideas regarding these features.

    Thanks for your feedback and patience!

  3. Quick Tools

    More functionality for the S Pen button. When you click the S Pen button, a little tool box should pop up close to the position of the pen. The tool box should have your most recent colors and custom pens/writing tools.

  8. Export in native format

    This would allow a user to edit notes between devices. For example create a note on Tab A and export to a Dropbox folder and then open and edit on Note 7 phone also running Squid. You can export to .pdf but then editing cannot be done on the original.

  9. import pdf pages into actual note.

    Currently the way to import pdf's is by importing the whole pdf which starts a new note. A better implementation would be to create a note then import the pdf and be able to select pages you wish to be imported. This way multiple different pdf's and selected pages can be imported into one note file.

    You can now insert any number of PDFs into an existing note (whether or not it was created from a PDF originally)! To do so, long press on the current page number, then choose Insert PDF. We’re still working on improving the discoverability of this feature, as well as the ability to only choose certain pages from a PDF when inserting it. For now, you can delete any pages you do not want after inserting the PDF (although this is still fairly tedious since we don’t yet have bulk delete).

  10. Locked "reading" mode

    When I review my notes, it's too easy to accidentally erase something, especially when the eraser tool is assigned to the finger touch

    We just released an update on Google Play today (v0.7.0) which adds a “view-only” mode. By default, notes are opened in the last mode they were in (so at first, “edit” mode). You can switch to “view-only” mode by clicking “view-only” in the overflow menu (three dots in the upper right or menu key on some devices). The default behavior can be changed to always open in “view-only” or “edit” in the Papyrus settings under Note Editor→Open Actions.

  11. New page type: music sheet

    It would be nice to have a music sheet as a page type.
    Better than this would be nice to have a way of importing new page types from a jpg or a pdf.

  13. Add the page select way as typing the page number, not scrolling

    Please add page select as type the page number not scrolling.

    When i see pdf over 500 pages, i should touch right arrow over 100 times or scroll the page number chart so long time.

    I wish i can reach the page at once as type the page number.

    Thanks for good writing app Papyrus with good luck for everyone.

    You can now type in a page number from the keyboard to jump to a specific page. To do this, tap the current page number to bring up the jump to page dialog, then tap the current page number and the keyboard will appear. Enter in the page number you want to jump to, then press Done/Ok on your keyboard and choose Ok on the dialog.

  14. Back to Basics: jump to last page and jump to entered page number

    As the title says you need to add a way where the user can select the page they want to go to. I have notes that exceed 60 pages and if you want to write something new to one of those notes you have to click the right arrow 60 times -.-
    So please add that feature f.e. as a dropdown field appearing by clicking the site number on the upper right.

    We just released Papyrus 1.0 with PDF import and fit page to width, height, and screen options! We do not yet have the ability to change the background color of a page (planned). If you are using a device with an active pen (such as a Galaxy Note device), finger touch should automatically be disabled while using the pen (this is done by the system).

  16. Allow to copy and paste between pages.

    The app currently does not allow users to copy and paste between pages in a single note. It would also be helpfully to be able to copy and paste between notebooks.

    The ability to copy and paste between pages (or notes) has been available since the initial release of Papyrus. Use the selection tool to select the desired items. Choose “copy”. Navigate to another page or open another note, open the overflow menu (three dots in the upper right corner or menu key on some devices) and click “paste”.

  17. Zoom control

    Make default zoom setting "Fit To Width" when opening note book and navigating to new page. Add zoom tool for 100% and other zoom percentages

    We just released Papyrus 1.0 with fit to width, height, and screen options, as well as the ability to set default zoom levels for fixed size pages and infinite pages in the settings. You can also easily toggle the zoom lock and jump to a specific zoom level from the zoom popup!

  18. Share Intent for Android version

    Android version needs to enable Share intent, so other apps can share content into Papyrus.

  19. Export to jpg or png

    How about exporting to JPEG or PNG for sending via Whatsapp and stuff.
    Maybe a page border should be mandatory then, or maybe it could even crop automatically. And when the JPEG is too large; JPEG > 5MB it would give a warning or something.
    I haven't put too much thought into it yet.
    But it would be a really cool feature.

  20. Saving Zoom level at which a note was created at so it reopens at the same zoom level

    When you save a note say at 50%, when you go back to the note it opens at 100% zoom. What I'm suggesting is that the note would automatically open at the zoom level you created, in this case 50%. This would save time and effort when opening notes. Also sometimes when I pinch zoom I inadvertently erase some of the note so I'm having to use the Undo button
