What’s New

Version 4.3.2

*4.3.2 Fixes*
- Changing a color swatch in 4.3.1 would trigger an irreversible loss of custom color palette data. Our team regrets releasing this bug and we encourage you to upgrade to 4.3.2 immediately.
- Duplicating a page with a background color would result in a change to the page's background color. This is now fixed.
- Cutting images with the Collage Tool would result in large file sizes. We've optimized image storage for this case and significantly reduced the associated file sizes.

LATEST FEATURE
Paper’s new collage tool introduces the simplest way to work with images. Add multiple images to the same page and cut them out or slice them up.
We’ve also added an Unsplash integration so you can search thousands of beautiful photographs right from the comfort of your personal journals.

You can also use iOS drag and drop to import images from other apps into Paper.

*4.3 Features*
- A new tool for Paper Pro users! The collage tool lets you add, cut, and arrange multiple images per page.
- Non Paper Pro users can still add a single image per page as always.
- Templates are still available and now appear separately from imported images.
- Full support for iOS drag and drop import.

*4.3.1 Fixes*
- Added an option in Canvas Settings to hide the drop shadow applied to imported images.
- Drawing with Apple Pencil on photos would sometimes trigger a transition to the collage tool. We fixed that.
- Copy and pasting ink with your finger set to "Cut" was needlessly difficult. Now you can tap on the tool tray without losing your cut selection.
- The image picker has been slow to appear for some users. This release might help.

Useful App, Ridiculous Premium features

I have been using this app for a few years now and got the Pencil by 53 before I had gotten my iPad Pro + pencil. Originally, the notebooks were listed along the left side (as in Notability) which made them easy to view and select. They now scroll across the screen and only the front-and-center notebook is visible, which makes finding and selecting a notebook difficult.
A bigger problem is the subscription. Features that I would consider fairly simple (changing the size of pens, cutting and pasting across notes) are subscription (premium) only features. Several other apps - Notability, GoodNotes, MyScript - are all $10 or less for a one-time purchase and offer similar features. If drawing is your thing, Procreate, Concepts, Sketches, SketchBook, or one of the Adobe apps are all <$20 (or free) and, again, often offer improved features. I mention this for 2 reasons - for one, if I were going to spend money on an app, I would put my money into one of the above apps. With that said, Paper is an elegant app that would be worth $5-10 +/- because it is well designed and seems useful as a place to sketch and organize ideas. Despite its limitations (and my frustrations at what I consider a ridiculous Premium service), I still use it quite frequently.

Skeuomorphism taken too far - lost functionality in latest update

I like the tool palette, and the experience of actually sketching is very nice, but the change to how journals are navigated between is frustratingly bad. Before, there was a list on the left and I could just jump to the journal (notebook? I forget what they’re called) that I wanted. Now that list is no longer an option. Instead I have to swipe through these big, unlabeled pictures of books to find the one I want. Not only is this laborious and a completely unnecessary step backward in efficiency, but the titles of the journals are not even on the pictures of the books themselves; you have to wait until each one is front and center and then the name pops up on the top. This makes a bad situation even worse - because the right journal is even harder to locate. If you were going fully skeuomorphic you’d think you could at least put the title of the journal on the cover of the picture of the journal? Ug. Sorry for ranting. I want to love this app, but this was just a totally boneheaded move. Please bring back the list mode, and if you must develop the UI in a skeuomorphic direction, please try to do so without making it harder to use efficiently.
