Not being able to insert extra material in my existing notes is a big problem for me.
I agree with Heikki that we do not need the three finger swipe. This feature is so important for usability that it should not be delayed by the challenge of implementing the swipe.
That is great news that you are planning to implement this.
The three-finger swipe sounds like a fun idea. We have to see how well it works in practice. Only trying it out will show whether I will manage to get my fingers aligned well enough so that the space gets inserted at just the place where I want it.
I know that everyone has been waiting a long time for sync and I want to reassure you that it is high on our list of priorities. As users of Squid ourselves, it’s something we really want as well! We appreciate your patience.
This is something we’ve been investigating since the app’s inception and we continue to investigate constantly. Syncing is a very difficult problem to solve, especially with regards to handwritten notes which can be combined with images and text and contain backgrounds from multiple PDFs. I don’t have an ETA for when sync will be supported, but rest assured this is a high priority for us. We appreciate everyone’s feedback on this idea.
When I open a pdf file from within my Dropbox on my Android tablet in Adobe Reader and then add notes to that pdf file, then those changes get synched to all my computers automatically by the Dropbox app. Similarly when I open a .doc file from within my Dropbox it opens in Polaris office and any modifications are saved back to dropbox and automatically synced. So it seems that the app does not have to do anything special beyond being able to work with files saved in the dropbox folder rather than its own folder.
There are many challenges with supporting continuous scrolling between pages. For example, a note can contain pages with infinite size (the default background type), which can be scrolled infinitely within the same page (so you’d never get to the next page). Infinite backgrounds can also be mixed with fixed size backgrounds (including PDFs). There isn’t really a good way to support scrolling through pages in this way. If you have any suggestions, please let us know in the comments!
Use an SVG document format for saving the files so that they can be viewed and edited by other programs on other platforms, in particular on a PC. The app "write" does that well.
