Not super intuitive

I got this for my iPad and I'm wondering if it's different on a desktop. I find myself going to the help page a lot and it doesn't always have the answers. I can't figure out how to get PLAIN text outside of a box or balloon. There seem to be lots of features that I am missing. I'm having fun playing around, but I need to sit down and read through the whole help section. maybe things will make more sense and I will update my review.

It's kind of unusual ,

Things I like number one able to upload pictures on the Internet and create comic books

Number to find pictures from my photo library and also the make up into graphic novels the titles it’s number three difficult number seven completely hard and also difficult
Number five figuring out of course how many other comic book writing apps out there where they would’ve never heard of one of them was is immensely frustrating as it was though what is the marvel him event there was one that literally didn’t stick the landing it was the comic book illustration app it was buggy wagon infested trench foot Roche us like cocktail forks and it sucked ours lots of oursI mainly enjoyed comical have three and I do recommend people using it though if you do want to creek, comic books are integrating novels I do

Needs a simpler GUI

I love this app on my Mac and it’s a very powerful iOS app however it would be nice to have a simpler GUI for commands. The undo seems to be buried at times when accidentally touching the wrong command and I don’t see an easy way to bring up the undo or a simple back button to navigate.
