Crop and Zoom features on NS1 needed ASAP, please :)

1) We need a “crop” feature for pictures ASAP. GoodNotes has an excellent way to edit photos taken with the camera while maintaining quality. I enjoy Noteshelf quite a lot, love its different pen styles and colours and the smoothness of the writing with the Apple pencil. With this said, just being able to modify the size of a photo, instead of manually being able to do so, limits the use of that particular feature especially when you need to take a quick picture from a presentation and paste it on your notes.

2) Zoom option. Yep, this is necessary as well. I don’t find Noteshelf 2 of the same quality of NS 1 even though NS2 has the zoom option. We need it in NS to make notes even better, smoother and more elegant. I like my notes clean and neat and every feature to make notes clearer and manageable would be highly appreciated.

Thank you!



I have been using this app for a few years and found it great. However, a few weeks ago I started to experience a problem. I copy and paste quite a lot of stuff that I like to go back to, but recently after I’ve saved the content it cuts off the bottom few lines. It doesn’t discriminate against how much or how little I copy either. Even if there is only one paragraph on the page it still cuts off the bottom few lines. Hope this problem is soon resolved.



I use Noteshelf for recording site visits; I hand write notes with the Apple Pencil, I take video and still images; I record conversations and back in the office I transfer the notes and photos to the desktop for final report generation.

It has saved a lot of time and is a more secure way of storing the notes rather than with bits of paper.

If I wanted more, I would say that handwriting recognition would be great, but I’m not sure there’s an app out there that could recognise my handwriting!!
