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.
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
Create a favourites bar to quickly and easily allow switching between tools withouth having to go through the menu.
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.
I customized my s pens button to work as an eraser. Works great, it's better than using my finger to erase as I would accidentally erase important notes. My finger now works as the selection tool

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.
It's too hard to switch between selecting and writing. When in selection mode, a quick double tap should take you back to writing mode.
Switching betwen pencil, keyboard, hilight need to be done quickly.
I would also like to see a customizable toolbar where you can place the tools that you need most. Also, it would be better to place the highlighter next to the pen instead of at the bottom of the pen drop-down window (this just adds an extra click to get to the tool).
I think the customizable toolbar feature is very urgently needed and if its difficult to make the toolbar entirely customizable, at least add 5 slots to customize (maybe more slots for tablets).
I´m disappointed in the development of Squid.
The prime focus should be improving the interface of notetaking, not changing the Design or add additional features or even porting the App to different eco systems.
A customizable toolbar with control over click counts is a must have for an app like this.
The Team (?) behind Squid surely has a lot on their mind, but it seems you lost the sense for what is really important.
Anyone agreeing with me? Comment here with a " + "
The only reason why I dont use the app. By the way i paid all extensions.

I'd refer if v had the small toolbar so that we can have a few of our favouritre colors so that v can access them quickly
