About coping

  1. I have loved using Penultimate. I use it for so many things. I often think better when I'm able to write and draw. Unfortunately this new release has ruined the app in my opinion. I've only just started using it, but so far, here is what I'm seeing: - very slow performance while writing. It doesn't keep up with my writing, misses strokes, and puts strokes in the wrong place. The old app was nearly flawless at this. - I can't easily see my pages. I have to scroll (and scroll, and scroll). This is a big issue as I have lots of pages related to projects. The simple overview allowed a quick way to jump to just what I needed. - speaking of scrolling, the app often misses the two fingers and draws a line that I then have to go erase. And, I just find scrolling to be awkward when I'm using a stylus. Before I could swipe with my thumb to a new page, but now I have to lift the stylus and get two fingers on the screen. As noted, this often results in unwanted strokes. - speaking of erasing: the hidden menu items for very common tasks just slows me down - zoom seems much less usable to me. Not only is it also slow at rendering, but the area is too small and it's quite a pain to have to move the zoom box around. - the "drift" feature is much, much worse. The old app would adjust as you wrote, slowing down as needed. The new app goes really fast at a constant speed making it really hard to write effectively. - I can't seem to get very good strokes no matter how I write. Some of it is due to the laggy rendering, but it seems there is more going on here. I'm not sure what changed, but it's just not as smooth to write anymore. I am so disappointed in this release. And of course, thanks to auto updates, I am stuck. I don't see a way to revert to the old app and keep my notes. I really hope something can be done. But, without re-releasing the old app, I'm sure it will take quite some time to fix. Unfortunately I just can't wait for that. I have real work to get done. Sadly I'll have to see what else is out there. (BTW, using it on an iPad mini Retina)
