Bad flipping pages in landscape 2 page view

In the first Flexcil you could have your notes on one side of the screen and when you flip the pages it goes to the next page but you don’t have to move your notebook page. Not with Flexcil 2!

For some reason on Flexcil 2 when you flip to the next page it skips the page that’s under the notebook. So no more of the seamless experience of going on to the next page and leaving the notebook page there. You have to do this awkward moving your notebook to the other side of the screen to see the second page and then flip it and then move it back to the other side of the screen again.

For all the features you guys are adding for Flexcil 2 why not keep the features from the last Flexcil. And using Flexcil 1 has all of this annoying stuff about upgrading and promotions. Why? Why would I upgrade to lose basic features?

Support Arabic text&search handwriting

Hello, there is a problem when writing in Arabic (add Arabic text), the Arabic text appears as dashed, broken, disconnected and inverted letters, which means that words and sentences become incomprehensible and inverted. Handwriting search must be supported

Please give me back the original!

I have relied heavily on Flexcil for the last year as a working my way through grad school and I have to say, I am so disappointed by this update for so many reasons. The biggest and first I noticed was the removal of read mode which I found totally unnecessary and incredibly annoying. I’m not sure why this was done but I’m pleading with you to please bring it back. I also deeply dislike how tiny everything is I don’t have the greatest vision and the fact that I can’t change the settings to make things more visible is incredibly frustrating and makes using your product very challenging at times. I really wish I could continue using the original as this update is making me rethink whether or not I want to continue using flexcil at all.
