    This is a must, however, this has been recommended many times over the years with no action. This is the best writing app on Android, and while some people don't agree with me, I am OK with a yearly subscription IF, and only IF you are taking that fee and improving the app. I use the app every day, every day... and have done so for years, back when it was Papyrus. Over the past couple years I have not seen any improvements. Yes there is likely some things in the background, but you have a long list of recommended user interface features that I believe could be done easily. If you truly want a top notch app, then give us some improvements. If you don't, then people will start to look at other options....

    Some ideas 1. fast tool bar so we can have custom pens/highlighters/shapes and color combinations, 2. the ability to open a new note based on a pdf background, and every time you add a page that pdf is used as the background, not the standard grid note. 3. Backup notes to Google Drive or other cloud based storage

    P L E A S E do that. I have to click 7 times to adjust pen/color/size everytime i want to write titles, subtitles and body. I use squid everyday, it's very annoying after 1hour writing. Would be also great to have a shortcut to selected combinations of pens/highlighter. THE TOOL BAR HAS A LOT OF EMPTY SPACE.

    This would be soooo helpful! Even just one toggle in the blue bar for switching between pen & highlighter mode would improve UX massively.

    Pleas I'm begging for you guys, pls make this app a perfect one, just by simply moving the tools from this sub-menu to the tool bar !!!!!!! Its a simple tiny easy update, Pls show the apple guys with their app (goodnotes) that squid is the best !!!!

    I would love to be able to easily switch between pen sizes too, like saving a palette of sizes or something. I usually use 0.3 mm when I'm writing, but I prefer larger sizes when I'm annotating pdfs or drawing. The slider bar for size can be finicky when trying to set a specific size.

    Exactly what I'm looking for too. So much screen real-estate on a Chromebook going to waste.

    I would suggest the same. Could be a frequntly used tool bar or you can create a set of your favorite tool/color.
