Pretty Good

This is a pretty good writing app, all I ask for is to add italics and bold.

Thank you for the review!

You can make text bold or italic. Create a Markdown document from the big plus icon. Write some text. Swipe left on the row of icons above the keyboard until you find "B" or "I" icon. Tap on the "B" icon to add bold style. Tap on the "I" icon to add italic style.

In case Markdown is not your thing, tap on the cog icon in the top right corner and toggle Preview Mode.

Lost all my documents!

Been using the Paper app for the last 3-4 months... all of a sudden all my created documents have just vanished! Nowhere to be found.... serves me right not to use a trusted software like google drive.... it’s as if all the documents literally vanished from my iPad! If you can help, I’ll consider changing the review

Hi Kilaah,

Sorry to hear that!

Paper saves documents to the Files app. You might have accidentally moved or deleted your documents through the Files app. Another reason might be that iCloud support got turned off for Paper.

Here are a few things you can try:
1) Open the Files app and see if you can find your documents. Try using both the search bar and just tapping through the folders. Check the "Recently Deleted" location is the sidebar.
2) In the Settings app tap on your profile picture and check if you are logged into iCloud. Then go to iCloud menu and see if both iCloud Drive and Paper are enabled.
3) In the Settings app scroll down to Paper settings, then tap Document Storage and check what is selected there. Should be iCloud Drive by default.

Thank you for contacting us via the email. We will offer any help we can.

It’s charging me when I start to type. But it’s ok

Hi ChucleIPod,

Thank you for the comment!

Are you referring to the Pro Features popup? This popup appears only while you are using Paper with active unpurchased Pro Features. In order to get rid of the popup, you can either purchase Pro Features or reset them to defaults. You will not see any popups while Pro Features are on defaults.
