Would like to see support for tablet mode split screen in Chrome OS13 votes
Split screen is fully supported by Squid. Whether this works on your Chromebook depends on which version of Chrome OS and device you have. In general, this should work on Chrome OS 70. However, it is currently broken on the Pixel Slate (running Chrome OS 71 with Android 9) as well as Chrome OS 72 with Android 9. Both of these issues have been reported to Google and should be fixed in a future update to Chrome OS.
If you ever have any issues with split screen, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know what device and version of Chrome OS you’re on and we’ll let Google know about the issue if we haven’t already.
I updated my Surface to Windows 10, and didn't realize this would break my premium features. I considered re-purchasing (loved the app), but the link to the store is broken.
This app was used every day -- I've switched to One Note for now (ugh), but the more notes I build in OneNote, the less likely I am to go back to Papyrus.2 votes
Update: Squid is no longer available on Windows (it was removed some time ago). We hope we can bring Squid back to Windows someday, but right now we’re focused on Android and Chromebook support.
This issue was not related to Windows 10. Papyrus (now called Squid) was removed from the Windows Store due to a trademark issue (see http://feedback.squidnotes.com/knowledgebase/articles/716574 for more info). Squid is now back in the Windows Store, and your premium features should be working again. I apologize for the inconvenience this has caused!
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.58 votes
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).
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.51 votes
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.
this would make this software the ULTIMATE graphic facilitation tool. a total game changer! Imagine seeing a cast icon at the top of the screen. once pressed your television mirrors your drawing surface. meeting becomes interactive. upon completion, export a pdf to all who were present. awesome. Please make this happen.8 votes
Import PDF files directly from Google Drive on a Chromebook.95 votes
This is already possible. You just need to install the Google Drive Android app from Google Play on your Chromebook. Please see http://feedback.squidnotes.com/knowledgebase/articles/1874122 for further details.
Some of the comments on this idea appear to be for automatic Drive backup or sync. If that’s what you want, please vote here: http://feedback.squidnotes.com/forums/177239-general/suggestions/6379530.
We college and high school students would love to be able to take cornell notes on our tablets. A keyboard, typing feature would also be a plus.8 votes
Squid 3.0 for Android adds new premium paper backgrounds, including four different Cornell notes papers! For more info about available backgrounds, please see http://feedback.squidnotes.com/knowledgebase/articles/839010
the app has a CTRL-Z undo feature but there's no CTRL-Y redo feature
too many times I've deleted whole notes and not been able to bring them back1 vote
The keyboard shortcut for redo is Ctrl + Shift + Z. FYI, you can also tap the redo (and undo) buttons in the action bar at the top. Please see this FAQ article for a list of keyboard shortcuts: http://feedback.squidnotes.com/knowledgebase/articles/1201054
It would be great to have the option to deactivate the return button while note taking to avoid accidentally closing the app1 vote
There’s an option to “Disable back button” in the Squid settings under Note editor.
I like being able to annotate .pdf versions of my professor's slides, however, if I want to add more notes, I have to go all the way to the end of the file, then add a page, then drag it to the right spot. It would be so much easier if I could just add a blank page right after my current page.11 votes
This is already possible (as Tony mentioned in the comments). Just long press the current page number to insert a page or PDF before the current page. Please see http://feedback.squidnotes.com/knowledgebase/articles/501193 and http://feedback.squidnotes.com/knowledgebase/articles/1136155
The ability to delete the page while you are on it, so that it doesn't save.1 vote
To delete the current page, long press on the current page number, then choose Delete page from the page actions menu.
You have a pretty awesome app but it lacks what all the rest lack - a dark (black) background.
You need to beat competition...most people want that.2 votes
As Tony described in the comments, this is already possible. Either create a new note with a blank background and choose the desired color, or change the background of an existing page by going to the Page Settings.
You can export PDFs to any app that will accept a PDF.
it would be great if you can change the written's color after writing1 vote
As mentioned in the comment, this is already supported. Use the selection tool to select what you want to change, then choose a different color from the selection menu.
Not compatible with the new Samsung Chromebook Plus. Have one of your devs buy one and look at it. Its the future of Android.1 vote
The app is compatible with the new Samsung Chromebook Plus. If you’re having any issues, please email us at email@example.com with as much detail as possible so we can help!
I am a proffessor at a university and had been using your program very efficiently.
With the last update screen mirroring is not working.
As soon as I open Squid, screen mirroring connection is being lost.
I lost my other devices' mirroring ability with this update.
Please solve this problem urgently.
This issue has been fixed in the latest update.
I love the new round icons, and it would be great if you would make some icons just for google's round icon revolution.
If it helps, I made some perfect conversions of the squid android icon and uploaded them here.2 votes
This will be in the next release (currently in beta)!
Like when I take a screenshot in my android phone, press share, into squid, write a note, wonderful! There are a lot of other apps I can Share a screenshot into/ through, but Squid is not there, at least not on my device...15 votes
This was added a while back!
In the list of default apps that can open PDFs, I did not see squid listed. This means that each time I want to open a PDF, I have to open squid and import PDF. Then I have to search through all my files for the correct PDF. This seems like a waste of time. Do you think you could make squid available as one of the default PDF programs?3 votes
Squid should show up as an option when opening a PDF from another app. If it doesn’t, please contact support at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can investigate.
I currently do field surveys using squid. I am able to create a document using 1,2, or 3 page pdf templates. I can add additional note pages, but it would be awesome to pull in additional pdf files, in case I have to add more findings, rather than create additional reports and then export to a pc to combine the pdfs into 1 using adobe products.1 vote
You can do this by long pressing on the current page number while in a note and choosing Import PDF. We’re working on ways to make this more discoverable. :)
