I suggest you ...

Enhance text tool with text wrapping, direct input, and resizable text boxes

Need text input directly on page instead of the pop out input box. Also need text wrapping for smaller sheet formats for those who type as well as write notes. I would gladly pay the fee for that but not the current input

    Regarding text input:
    1) remove the box used to input text. It shud feel like plain text writing,'not into a box.

    2) so naturally,text ahud automatically go to next line and be visible,in original editing document as well as the exported pdf.

    3) please provide palm support in hand writing mode.

    Note: all the abive features are available in 'notability' for iOS. pls have a look at it. I really need android to come of age. So i want u guys to develop papyrus and make it better.

    I'm a math & phy teacher. Currently papyrus is the only droid app that comes close to meeting my requirements.
    Thanks!!

    I agree. I want to use this app to add comments on student papers, and without these features, the typing tool that I purchased is pretty useless.

    I agree with this comment. Text wrapping would be very useful

    I would like to second this feature. As it stands the text tool is really only useful to make headings. I think the tool would be more usable if the tool allowed you to drag out a line that defines the width of the text box and any text typed into the box will then wrap down to the next line when it reaches the set width (and it would also be good if this was done on the page not in a popup messagebox).

    1- The text should be written directly in the document.
    2. The text box should be self-adjusting during writing.
    3- After writing, the text should be avoidable.

    I am looking for a other app to use because papyrus doesn't work with a keyboard. Other than that,this app is by far the best!

    Text boxes are editable, it's just difficult to return to edit them. Open a doc with a text box, select the dashed circle (circle to edit) tool and touch anywhere on the text box. The dashed line outlining the text box will appear and the upper left of the tool bar will show "Done" and "T"; Twp the "T" and the text box will open the box in the editing window. When you finish, tap "Done". Hope this helps.

    A must! This is what drove me away from lecture notes and gave me hope in papyrus. Excellent app, but would be peerless with this feature!

    Subj, actually. And it is strange that I do not see a bug tracker occupying a highly visible place...

    I suggest you should add a new function. It allow users to use both handwriting and soft keyboard and make a switch between them.This can make the notes more interesting. It makes users write and type notes faster than ever.

    Yes! The word-wrap is key. If you are writing more than a sentence, it just continues on forever on one single line, and then it is a pain to fix. Being able to edit the size of the comment just by resizing, or better yet, pre-drawing the size limitations you want the text box to have would be much more functional. I'd love to see this happen as it would improve my note taking experience dramatically.

    Nope. This would make this an awesome tool. Integrated with a clipboard feature.

    Yes, the text tool is ridiculous. Especially taking into account that it is a paid feature!!
    Papyrus is so nice, and yet I was very disappointed when I purchased the toolbox for text, and it turned out to be so crappy.

    1. Size of fonts is way too small! The biggest font, 50pt, is just big enough to be used as a regular font, and the default font is much too small relative to the size of a line in my galaxy note 10.1
    2. Text formating. Allow the width to be specified, and have the lines be automatically justified. Better yet would be if the text was formated directly on the page, not in a separate dialog.
    3. Selecting text for editing is too fiddly. Better would be that if you click in the area of old text, you automatically edit it.

    And, for charging so much, you could easily add lists, bold, italic, etc etc etc.

    Whenever I paste text into ex. an A4 -page, the textbox should automaticly fit the page, not go outside the boundries. Or a tool for editing the textbox size.

    at least Copied texts Would fit into screen Not extend Out of it
