I only draw in Flow with my Apple Pencil, so I've disabled the option to draw with one finger, but I think it would be nice if there was a toggle to allow me to navigate the page with that one finger instead, rather than having to use two fingers to get around.
I’d like to see a single page that acts like a whiteboard that is effectively infinite in size in all directions, that can be zoomed and rotated.
Select / Move / Transform
To move, resize and rotate, change color and change tool of part of your drawing. I would suggest you take a look on NoteAlways implementation of this feature as well. Also not a specific tool, just draw a circle around part of your drawing and a Hand icon appears, if you grab it, the circle will be ignored and the circled part is now selected for you to move/resize/rotate/recolor/change tool. Very natural and easy.
A key advantage of digital over paper is ⌘F. If I could Find In Document, Find In All Documents, and _especially_ find handwritten notes through Spotlight integration, I’d subscribe in a hot minute.
I find myself accidentally zooming quite often (both Pinch-to-Zoom and double-tap). Ability to disable would be useful.
One of the things I love about Flow is its simplicity, so I don't mean to advocate for adding a ton of new brushes. That said, I think it’s fairly common for sketchbook users to carry around a tiny water color palette and brush and so would like to suggest this as a particular kind of brush which might be reasonable to have in this kind of app. (I noticed in the help documents a water brush was mentioned, not sure if this was an accident or a peek of things to come.)
Light pencil shading + Apple Pencil improvements
It’s difficult to do consistent, light pencil shading when tilting the angle of the Apple Pencil. In other apps (Linea, Tayasui Sketches Pro) I can get a consistent light shade by applying a minimal amount of pressure at a very shallow angle — I don’t even have to think about it. In Flow, however, I have to apply more pressure or the app doesn’t register the Apple Pencil’s input. When the app finally *does* register its input, the shading appears quite suddenly and it’s usually darker than I had intended. The end result is pencil sketches that look smudged, blotchy, and inconsistent. Would love for pencil shading to work more naturally with the Apple Pencil — it seems like Moleskine should be the one company that gets this right. Thanks!
