Currently when you free-shape select objects, a best-fitting selection box is created and used to select objects. This hinders the selection of objects that are close to each other but have complicated interaction, for instance in drawings.
My suggestion would be to have a real free-shape selection of objects, with only the objects selected that are within the original selection, without expanding the selection to the best fitting box.
Furthermore, differentiating between CW and CCW selection might help too, where CW will select *any* vector touched by the free selection, and where CCW will select *only* those that are completely within the free selection.
Finally, having adding and remove capabilities of the selection, just like Photoshop/Illustrator, would be an amazing bonus.
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.
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!
