Better organisation ✅
Physically turning our iPads to write notes in landscape feels a bit primitive in 2020. Page rotation is a must-have for a note-taking app. Or at least provide us with landscape paper templates.
Better page customisation
- saving custom templates
- different page templates in the one notebook
- more page size options
Notability 11.0 delivered on most of these! We are making progress, it seems.
Auto-switching from eraser to pen
Yes, this can be useful.
Gestures are faster. The three-finger gesture swipe to the right lets you redo. But our community wants a dedicated icon anyway.
We want to:
- create hyperlinks (🤔 They now support exporting active hyperlinks. It’s a step in the right direction).
Support on multiple platforms.
Notability is currently available on iOS/iPadOS and macOS only. Windows and Android versions will be much appreciated—that way, people are not limited to just one type of device to enjoy using the application. It will mean syncing via other Cloud services as well.
True dark mode
But of course, it’s necessary.
Improved lasso tool selection options
The lasso tool in Notability selectively selects only your handwritten sections. What happens to our images and text? That level of discrimination is unacceptable in 2021, lol! We should at least be able to select everything on the page.
Improvement of PDF features
It would be awesome to see outlines in Notability. Not all PDFs have hyperlinks, but most have outlines.
Bring back the in-app web browser
According to the Notability developers, they changed this because Apple changed its privacy policies. So far, it seems only Ginger Labs has responded to that change. All the other developers from other apps are not listening. Am just saying. Maybe Notability was affected because of how they coded the feature. Is that even a thing?
Adding more things to notes
Yes, we need the ability to insert more things into our notes. Tables and videos mostly. Anything else you can think of?
Add a pencil tool
Please add a pencil tool.
Text alignment ✅
It’s still limited to text boxes only though. We look forward to having it on the text we add directly onto our pages.
Better backup restoration
We should be able to recover our organisation from backup in Notability, not just dividers. Recovering notes from backup is currently a nightmare in Notability. We hope our developers can make that experience better for us. Learn more about backup and syncing your digital notes.
