  1. Allow cloud backups to work on a note-by-note basis (incremental backups)

    Currently, cloud backup saves one single file to my Dropbox account. If I have a few large notes (containing annotated photos, for example) my database can quickly get HUGE, and every sync session takes forever (or fails, very frequently). It would be great if Papyrus could do incremental backups so only new or updated notes will be synced to the cloud.

  2. Improve stylus style to be like s-notes

    Basically, copy the style/feel of the s-note software which is so much better than what we currently get with squid. Let me explain.

    Squid uses the pressure sensitivity of the stylus to control the width of the line only. S-note uses the pressure for the width and the opacity of the line. This results in having a better feeling when drawing multiple lines over one another. Important also, squid uses a width range that is too big. This means that when I'm writing something the size of the letters may vary so much that it gets unreadable. Therefore I usually…

  3. Add more ruled paper options

    Please add

    1) wide & college-ruled backgrounds with a light red vertical line on the left side about 1" from the edge, and

    2) wide & college-ruled backgrounds with a light red vertical line on the left side about 1" from the edge plus a lighter red vertical line on the right side about 1" from the right edge.

    Manually drawn lines are vulnerable to erasure.

  4. Lines !

    There is a line feature - you draw a line (freestyle) and it become a straight line. A lot of apps have that feature.

  6. Add layer support

    I'd like to use layers for 1) sketching things first, then finalizing on another layer 2) changing the order of layers 3) hiding and unhiding elements for presentations and different scenarios. See Sketchbook or Photoshop for reference.

  7. Export specific pages of note

    I want to be able to select which pages in a note to export rather than just a single page or the entire note.

  8. Import more than just PDF files (Ex: .doc[x], .odt, .ppt[x], etc.)

    I'd love to see Papyrus be able to import other file formats, since instructors, in my experience, rarely supply their class notes as .pdf. More often they provide them as .doc/.docx (support for both is necessary, since most non-MS Office programs I've experienced don't save in .docx. I rarely see .odt or other odd formats, but some people might use it) or .ppt/.pptx (I also don't know what alternative formats for those are, but I know they exist). I currently have to use another app to convert these to PDF on my device first, which can take anywhere from 30…

  14. Sync to OneDrive and Google drive.

    It's frankly just silly that notes cannot be backed up to two of the most popular cloud services. Sigh... back to OneNote for me :/

  15. Allow storage location to be on SD card

    Since many tablets like Note 10.1 have limited storage it would be useful to allow setting default location of data to SD card

  16. Add page number function

    It would be very useful if the users could add page number in its notebooks pages. When printed, it becomes easier to go thru the pages when they are numbered.

  18. Make the page auto advance as I write.

    When writing while zoomed on GN2, I would like the screen to automatically advance to the right when I reach the screen's edge. Sliding and zooming and panning when I am trying to write at normal speed is tedious to the point of being painful. Thanks for considering.

  20. Ability to choose other cloud services that we wish, public and/or private

    While dropbox and box are a step forward, why not just. Allow Squid users to be able to choose whatever cloud services they wish whether public or private cloud service.

    I personally don't like dropbox or box services they are very limited in how you can choose what folders files are stored in.
