Continuous vertical scrolling (continuous page mode)
It would be nice to be able to start writing on the next page while still viewing the bottom of the previous page.
There are many challenges with supporting continuous scrolling between pages. For example, a note can contain pages with infinite size (the default background type), which can be scrolled infinitely within the same page (so you’d never get to the next page). Infinite backgrounds can also be mixed with fixed size backgrounds (including PDFs). There isn’t really a good way to support scrolling through pages in this way. If you have any suggestions, please let us know in the comments!

As others have said, this is one of the biggest things that I feel is missing in Squid. It would be good enough if we could just have continuous scrolling enabled for notes which only comprise of finite notebooks, but I think that it would be even better if we could enable continuous scrolling for notebooks with mixed background sizes, where scrolling would only be allowed within intervals of finite sized pages.
I wish I could Scroll the pages when its on A4 paper and not only turn a page over with the arrows.

Dear Andrew, I can suggest looking at the goodnote app for iOS, this is the model that you can follow in order to make your app really great. I am a student of engineering and use a lot the tablet to save paper while doing exercises. It is very hard to move back and forth with the current page visualization. It would be very nice if instead of having an infinite page unprintable, is better to have an a4 page that we can scroll infinitely adding new page

I would recommend it working like notability on apple products, it is one infinitely long page, but with the width of a sheet of A4 paper, with lines that break up the pages and when you export the note as a PDF it automatically breaks it into multiple pages so it is easier when you have to do things like homework and print it to turn it in.

The difficulty in continuous page scrolling is the realtime view of the pages that are up. Having this available only for fixed sized sheets should remedy the infinite size issue, while having pages not in view be either rendered in low resolution using the same scheme of a preview mode or in the event a large number of pages or sheets having been written, not rendering those sheets far from the view until the view window moves near. I write huge documents and assignments between fifty to a hundred pages regularly and I can see this is an issue if all the sheets are rendered and is present in Android and iOS tablets but does not appear as a problem in Windows 10 64bit applications. If the file is separated into a temp file during edit and the save file, the temp file can always be the size of a few of the viewable sheets around the edited sheet and should continously update to and from the main save file. This would allow the main file to be of the maximum 4GB 32bit size while the temp can be several orders of magnitude smaller. Also, the drive sizes, and processing power of new tablets can easily allow for this. The main issue is that when writing on a single sheet, it becomes difficult when the stylus approaches the side edge or bottom edge of the screen and allowing for a clean flow and view of the document sheets being edited. Also, continuous sheets would be meant for assignments that are to be submitted as printable PDFs, and would not be used in infinite sheets.
No pages. Just one continues page like it was. Absolute pain in the ass taking notes on the phone now with separate pages. Also extremely difficult to add photos to the exact location I want.

If someone wants to add an empty page among the imported pdf pages let it be the same size as the original pdf page size or make it an A4 size page but allowing continous vertical scrolling of an imported book is more convenient.
I think most users would be statisfied if they could scroll infinitely in documents which only consist of pages with definite size. In my opinion this would be a good compromise.
I also support this feature. There are many apps that do this (e.g. 'lecture notes', where you can set the app to view one page at a time, or allow continuous scrolling, where you can see where one page ends and the other one starts, or even the 'write' app has it), but they also have other features lacking. Adding this to the app would make it very appealing especially or people who want to use it in classrooms.
when you delete the infinite background and fix it to DIN A4 every note has same size and u can add continuous scrolling .
PLEASE ALLOW CONTINUOUS SCROLLING. i love squid otherwise

I agree. I just signed up with Pro to annotate PDF's and was finding it frustrating not being able to just scroll down continuously to the next page, which is why I did a google search and found this. It also makes it hard to write towards the bottom, generally, you'd just scroll it up to be writing in the middle of the screen.
I use Drawboard on my Surface Book which has no issues. I use this on my Galaxy Tab 6.
Looks like I will be cancelling as soon as I find another app.
I feel ripped off. This ruins everything about reading, not to mention: when you import a pdf the page isn't infinite!
Seriously it's the only reason I don't use the app.
So there isn't a way for the next page to follow directly below the previous page like when using microsoft word? It is a feature that we expect to have by now.
Well I think that whatever challenge this may cause, their absolutely need to be away to scroll rapidly. I am a musician, there is no way I can hit that arrow fast enough lol this is a must I am sure and not only for me :)

There definitely needs to be a way to have continuous scrolling for imported PDFs. As others have suggested, adding a new infinite page to a document should prompt the user that it will disable continuous scrolling
It would be really, really, great if this feature would be included.
I had previously been using LectureNotes but unfortunately had to change due to compatibility issues, and so I am trying out Squid. LectureNotes has this very useful feature, and if Squid incorporates it I would consider using it for my note taking/calculations (for which it is annoying to have to click back to see what you wrote at the end of the previous page).
Would it be possible just to allow this feature for non-infinite backgrounds and mixings of non-infinite backgrounds? And also to make it an option in the settings that the user can opt out of? Say if one is using a finite size background and then wants to add an infinite background after it, there could be some warning that the user has to change their settings (i.e. turn off continuous scroll) to allow this mixing.
You just lost another paying customer because of not enabling this. There are plenty of good suggestions how to do this in the comments
Yes, I've the same problem. I need to see the bottom of previous page and the top of current page at the same time. Please, develop this function for the non-infinity notes and for PDFs.
