Transition to Paperless in Financial Aid Office

Works well with Apple Pencil. This app does what I expected, but it has taken some trial and error to figure out how to do certain things, like "find on page" (because the search icon is hidden if you have the tool menu on the smallest setting), and how to set up so it will automatically go back to pen after eraser, which is convenient. I am finding that as I use it and learn, I am liking the app more and more. Some people complain that the eraser goes by stroke and not pixel. I think stroke is faster, so I hope they keep the option to choose if they add a pixel eraser later.

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?

Worse than Original

I used the original Flexcil 1 and loved it. It was super easy to do everything I needed to. Now, with this version it is super frustrating to do my work. I have not been able to edit a text box once I am done typing in it, there is no read mode to use the pen to scroll through pages, and the notebooks are now in a folder instead of being in a separate tab on the side like in the original version. Also, if you want to bring up a notebook page within a pdf it does not go to your most recently opened notebook like in the original version, but instead goes to the first alphabetical notebook. I’m not sure why they changed these features, but I hope they are able to fix them. I’m giving two stars because I do like the feature of having tabs at the top of the screen to quickly switch between recently opened pdfs.
