I suggest you ...

Import more than just PDF files (Ex: .doc[x], .odt, .ppt[x], etc.)

I'd love to see Papyrus be able to import other file formats, since instructors, in my experience, rarely supply their class notes as .pdf. More often they provide them as .doc/.docx (support for both is necessary, since most non-MS Office programs I've experienced don't save in .docx. I rarely see .odt or other odd formats, but some people might use it) or .ppt/.pptx (I also don't know what alternative formats for those are, but I know they exist). I currently have to use another app to convert these to PDF on my device first, which can take anywhere from 30 seconds to 3 minutes, depending on the size of the document, and then I have to import the PDFs to Papyrus.

If Papyrus could import these files, it would save me time, and also potentially save users a lot of headaches over messed up formatting, digging up converted files, and hang-ups in conversion programs.

        100% agree. Import Word documents so that I can take notes on them. Ideally be able to add spaces inbetween so I can fit hand written notes on each point.

        great app just which you could of import powerpoint files also. As most student/lecturer files are in powerpoint

        PLUS PLUS PLUS. It would be less annoying if we can import a bulk of pdfs at once. Even if they are not integrated into one note. Just make us able to add a number of pdfs into squid, whether in the untitled note folder or any other folder. If they can be imported in to untitled note at once, at least we can select them and then arrange them within squid.

        As others have mentioned, there are was to get around this, instead what we need is the ability to create folders and subfolders. That would be much more helpful right now.

        I currently convert ppt to PDF but it can sometimes be a pain to do. Would love to be able to open an annotate ppt files.

        Being able to import PPT files and annotate them with the same efficacy as is possible with PDF is required very urgently,

        Quite happy to pay additional for it as a PREMIUM feature.
