Works well my projects

I would download, or save materials from the internet, convert them to PDF files, and make annotations or highlight as I read through the articles. In doing this I find Notes Writer doing an almost excellent job. It would be better if I can remove/erase the previous highlights, or the underlines. Also, if I can do "copy and paste styles" it would be great. Thank you!

Perfect for my needs, I'm in love!

The title says it all.

This thing is HORRIBLE

The app crashed every time I tried to save a document. Once I reloaded the app, my documents were gone!
