For Apple Pencil Users

I have one problem with this app which is the support Apple Pencil receives. I use iPad Pro 1st gen and with the original Apple Pencil.

Suggestions to Apple with regards with what’s missing and should be added to their app:
I love writing notes but I do wish to have more options for different “brushes”. I would like an option for there to be more than one option on the bottom tool bar at any one time of the same thing! What do I mean by this you might be asking? I mean I would like to have a red blue and black pen in the tool bar at the same time instead of having to use the colour menu to reselect a colour every time, this is a work flow issue I’ve noticed. Would love PDF support for the app too. I hope that one day support for gestures is added such as holding the Apple Pencil in a spot for a while puts it in line mode allowing the drawings of straight line. A ruler with measurements would be a great addition. Graph and line paper inserts would be amazing. Quick shape which a tool in Procreate where if you create a shape when drawing and hold it down the app recognises the shape it resembles and creates a perfectly straight or curved lines for the shape (look at Procreate quickshape for reference).

Was good once

I have been a Mac user since 1989, and as a lecturer I have had time to evaluate most of Apple’s own Mac Word Processors. The best was MacWord which was replaced by Apple Works which was lighter weight but ok. Pages wasn’t as good as good as Apple Works, then they crippled the programme when the iPad was released, dumbed it down for ‘novice’ users. Each iteration of Pages for iPad gets worse and worse, it has really difficult to use menus when compared to a competent programme like Drafts. The selection tool has gone backwards, you once were able to select individual letters, now it’s impossible.
Have a look at Nisus Word as an example to design a user friendly UI, or perhaps borrow their programmers.

New Update is Terrible

I loved Pages and have been using it for three years now. I like to write creative stories and it was great to have an app automatically downloaded onto my device so I could do just that. The way the thumbnails were organised was nice (plus you could change the way it was aligned), and you could sort by now you wanted things ordered (name, size, date, etc).

However, for some reason, these features have been removed in the new update? Unless I’m missing something, there is now no way to change the way the thumbnails are set and how to sort your documents. The new layout is atrocious and turns me off. I hate how small and cluttered it all looks now, this wouldn’t even be an issue if it was customisable! I used to be able to sort my stories form oldest so that I could look back and read my old work to see my improvement. Before I could just tap a simple button and boom! Sorted. Now I have to manually find my old work, which is way less efficient.

If these features haven’t been removed and I’m just being stupid, then I humbly take back what I have said and apologise. But until I’m corrected or these wondrous features come back, I am sadly going to have to find an alternate for Pages.
