Features request for stylus users

Post by onlytolook »

Feature requests:

- Implementation of a stroke eraser
- Add a lasso
- Ability to use the vertical toolbar in full screen mode or other floating customizable bar, because every cm matters when it comes to tablet
- Option to easy format the vertical toolbar: see pictures of pdf annotator, samsung note, Drawboard PDF.
- Make fullscreen mode, more UI friendly for tablet users, every cm matters when it comes to tablet; DrawboardPDF, OneNote (microsof365 version 2301
- The ability to add margins to an existing page; PDFannotator, OneNote
- Horizontal scrolling -> One page, double page, cover page, continious etc.

- Ability to convert handwritten text (stylus) to text; Samsung Notes and windows have this feature
- Probably the most difficult, but definately worth it: OCR / A search option for handwritten notes (like OneNote).

- The ability to do active recall and spaced repetition, by blurring a part of your page; DoYouNotes, remNote
- when selecting or highlihting text, a top bar appears, with the following options; xodo
Change style/format ,Add comments, Translate, search dictionary, add text, Delete, Flatten (annotation), Share, Search (on web), Read (out loud),

+1 for stroke eraser and lasso tool.
There are other threads that have requested similar features.
https://forum.tracker-software.com/viewtopic.php?p=166171&hilit=lasso#p166171

Just opened this post by chance because I wanted to rant about the same :)
Much needed.

And with the lasso tool... it would as well be nice to(be able to) choose "include/exclude partially selected elements" :)
