My app keeps glitching in various ways. the lasso tool not working properly, delayed erase/write, issue with selecting other pens, lag when flipping between pages, recognizing lines as ovals, etc. anyone else?
That sounds annoying! Are you on iOS 16 or iOS 17?
Mine is also recognizing lines as ovals. There have been some other strange things too, but I have been busy and don’t remember what happened. I have the latest iPad OS.
Thanks - do you remember when this started for you (days or weeks ago)?
it is so annoying but I still exclusively use pen book. I’m on iOS 17.0.2 but an update to 17.0.3 comes out tonight.
I would say right around time of the update
I also am unable to use the lasso tool, it just pans the page instead.
I think it stopped recognizing lines after the big update.
Thanks - are you on iOS 16 or iOS 17?
I am on iOS 17. I have discovered that it does recognize lines if they are straight enough. I think it was more forgiving earlier, but long lines are recognized very well.
Something I have discovered is that if I use the lasso tool, it easily scrolls to the previous page. The ink is quite far from the edge of the paper when it starts to happen.
I have another problem that has been there longer. I have had the app about a year, but do not remember when I did this the first time. When I resize and move around several stickers, and press undo, all of them ends up in a heap on top of each other. Redo to get them back does not work. I have to move each one in place and resize manually. Quite annoying. It also happens if I have done other tings after adding stickers, and happen to press undo one extra time.
Thanks for the info - we do tweak the shape recognition as sometimes it gets too aggressive. I will look into it and also the stickers/undo issue.
Yes, mabe that is why I think it behaves differently. It recognized lines that were more inaccurate earlier. I just have to adapt to the new limits.
Another issue I have is that if I press undo after using shape recognition nothing happens. It does not undo the recognition. I think it has been like that all the time. Neither does it undo the line itself. I have to erase it if it turns out wrong. And that is not so good if I have drawn something on top of something else. I may end up erasing everything.
Thanks for listening to us users. It makes a great app even better. I am using PenBook almost daily.
Thanks for the kind words. You’re right - there is a bug in the undo stack with regards to shape recognition, thanks for the report. We’ll try to improve it.
