What’s New

Version 5.4.0

This release adds a highly requested feature for Pro users: custom templates. 

Create your own design for a reusable page background and save it to the library of templates.

You can also capture templates from any of the journals you’ve downloaded from the Paper store:
• Monthly planner pages
• Manuscript paper
• Custom grids and ruled lines

And don’t forget — you can set any template to be the default for an entire journal. Every new page will start just the way you want it. 

This release also contains several bug fixes, including:
• A fix for navigating to iCloud-only journals from the search dialog
• You can once again drag and drop images from other apps into the ‘butterfly view’

Editors’ Notes

Ingeniously designed, Paper presents a powerfully modern tool for writing, drawing, note-taking and beyond. Sketch out ideas and whip up diagrams with a rich selection of responsive brushes. Using simple gestures, quickly annotate photos or transform text into beautifully formatted lists. It’s an excellent medium for capturing and organising the thoughts and images that you need every day.

Very good, but

Where is the scaling and rotation tools? What is the purpose of cutting if it cant be rotated or scaled? I’m still subscribing pro and pulling my hairs off every night before the update comes out.

Developer Response ,

There is a workaround for Paper Pro subscribers. In the Collage tool, tap on the "add image" button and then select "Journal Pages". You can then scroll through your Journal pages to the image you'd like to import. The content of your canvas will be imported as one element without the background color. Once in the Collage tool layer, you can scale, rotate, and duplicate finished elements from the ink layer. If you run into issues, please send us your Diagnostic Report to open a support ticket. In Paper, tap on the Settings icon top right then “Support”. On the next screen, tap on “Send Diagnostic Report”. An email window will pop up. Please add a detailed description of what’s going wrong in the body of the email. Once we’ve received your email, we’ll be able to dig in. Thank you for your patience.
