What’s New

Version 5.1.0

This update brings new dimensions to the Cut tool. You can now scale and rotate your cut selections in the canvas with simple gestures. This is a surprisingly powerful and highly requested feature.

Additionally we’ve fixed a rare bug that resulted in a blank grey screen.

Please go back!

I love the app and use it professionally on daily basis.
Today the iPad version updated on its own and I reeeeally don’t like the new one. This purple background, the books in perspective, no option for a transparent cover band color, ... and also became slower to load pages/ images. This does not feel like an improvement :( please reconsider this interface/ version.

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.


no Paper 53 enthousiast no more

Years I have made good use of the original UI, paid in full for all it’s features. Suddenly I lost I all, every intuitive feature Moved to a new subscription called Pro. suddenly I need to pay again for the same features, but now part of a subscription.

I am very diaspointed. Just may have to look for a new App to work with from now on.

Very nice update

I use this app from the beginning and I love the powerful simplicity.
The last update with rotation and scaling images and drawings make this app almost complete, the only thing I wish is layers, maybe in the future 😉
