Doesn't really get better

Update 2: the blur is still there. Please turn it off. There's absolutely no need for it and I can't read my notes before opening

All booklets are blurred!!!

Is seems like most updates don't really improve the program. Except for zoom and line thickness we're almost back to older versions. The page swipe was there in early versions, but doesn't work well in this version. It interferes with zoom a lot.
Please put back some love in this program. The realistic feel and ease of use are still unsurpassed, but with a few additional features it will be able to be a daily driver for artists. (One sketch layer would be nice for example)

Developer Response ,

The Depth of Field and bloom effects will be removed entirely in Paper 4.2.8. It should be released later this week. Thank you for your patience. Please feel free to reach out to us at if have further feedback.

Super app!

Ik werk er graag mee. Makkelijk overzichtelijk en genoeg mogelijkheden.
Het enige nadeel is dat de afbeeldingen prima zijn voor afdrukken op A5 of in een digitale presentatie, maar niet voldoende kwaliteit voor grotere afdrukken. Als dit wel zou kunnen, zou ik deze app waarschijnlijk nog veel vaker gebruiken.

Installed new update and lost my extra tools

Not funny to force your loyal customers into a subscription model for things they allready paid for.
