Fewer clicks to switch tools
I'd like to have fewer clicks to change tools. Like changing from pencil to eraser or shapes. Maybe there could be a quick change or some defaults.
To change tools, you have to
1. click the tools menu
2. Click the tab of the tool
3. Choose the specific tool
4. Click out of the menu
Then, you can start using it. And that is without changing any tool options.
Hi, your app is realy great, thank u for that, but there are some features that are just not effective enough and cause time waisting:
Right now the process is long and not neccesery at all, instead of tap on pen tool>choose marker\eraser\cutting tool>choose kind of these things>choose color>tap again on empty place to close the menu that I will be able to write, just put these options right on the toolbar.
If I want marker I pick marker, if I want cutting tool I pick cutting tool, just like that right away!, and for the thickness or transparency- they can be in the secondary menu by a long tap
And if from some reason you guys dont want to make these changes so at least make the secondary tools picking menu, automaticly close himself after picking tools.....

Selecting a specific width for a pen can be tedious so having a shortcut for pens with a specific width and colour would be very helpful

Samsung Chromebook Plus does not have an active stylus, so switching from pen to eraser and back to pen, is realy time consuming task. I for example, would easily trade existing cast icon for an eraser tool. I also believe the Eraser tool should be accessible directly from toolbar.

At least give the option to either combine pen tools or not. Especially on Chromebooks, there's plenty of room to separate them out.
Have the bar at the top of the screen show favourite tools (eg: selection, true eraser, pen and often used colours). Makes it easier to switch between tools in a fast paced class!
Also, would be nice if notes could be combined into one file before upload. (eg Note A, Note B, Note C --> Note ABC --> dropbox)

When I am copying, I miss a quick access toolbar to change the color of the pen quickly. Apps such as LectureNotes and Inkrredible have these functions. Switching between the pen and the drawing tool(line, square) is slow too.

I agree. Others apps have these basic functions
That ideia would be awesome. Just put like 3 empty button spaces at the top bar so that we could add our own actions. I would add to that too 3 more buttons for shortcuts for the most used colors. Or just put many more button spaces that we can choose from actions or colors. Thanks.
Now you have to use the pen menu for a change of the pen function, like from writing to erasing. It's laboriously. If in the menu bar icons, it would be more easy and effective.
It would be perfect, if you can choose your favourite functions.
i think this is very very essential update. please make it available! thanks
Agree!!! I like to swtich between pen and highlighter and wish i could just do this with one touch! Would love to see this simplified and more accessable.
Alternate idea: Create your own quick access toolbar of favourites/shortcuts of customised tools you use often (including colour, size etc).
Can please somebody official comment why there is no change in the usability for over 2 years? How can you expect somebody to rent your program if there is no basic progress.
And DON'T MAKE THIS A PREMIUM FEATURE please... If im going to get the premium at all, though it's not the most expansive thing 1$ a month or 6 a year, still feels greedy for almost enough features.
If only S note had infinite page length...this is what makes squid for me.
OMG this is so obvious, I used the app for 5 mins and I was like "why I need to click the pen, change tab to eraser pick eraser, erase and then the whole process again for the pencil... Put the pencil and eraser tools on the main menu bar so you can change between them in 1 click.
I can't use my finger to erase (that was the default) because that's for panning, until they put air panning like in the S note app.

À million times this! I want at least a quick eraser button
I beg u pls separate the tools (pen,eraser,colors) from eachother like onenote android or at least make it optional bcaz its so probable to erase parts (while using finger eraser) and bores me, than I don't study so u have to pay compensation :))
Own button for the eraser on front menu.
Allow users (without S-pens etc.) to quickly switch to the eraser tool without having to click into the pen tools list first.
Is there plans to add the ability to add acustom toolbar
Similar to MS paint? It is very cumbersome to switch between select and pencil modes.
I would pay for this feature.

Or make the settings allow me to define different tools for different buttons/finger/secondary button. So I can make text, lines, pen, box, assignments.
Yes, please do it.
