So first of all - great app! Really useful already at this beta stage. Thanks!
I wanted to give feedback about the pdf viewer. I am aware I am nitpicking here - I understand it’s likely very low priority compared to other issues. Anyways- I like to use apps in split screen on my iPad pro 9.7 because it’s a very powerful way to get almost desktop-like productivity on the go, especially with a hardware keyboard, so I am anticipating to use Paperpile quite a lot in split screen (say, right next to a manuscript I am writing, a note taking program, or right next to a website or other pdf to compare them to each other).
When using split screen on iPad pro (landscape mode), the pdf viewer shows the first page of a pdf as single, app screen filling page (as it should). The following pages however are shown in a double page layout, making it necessary to zoom in every time you scroll through pages. The very last page however is a single screen filling page again (if the pdf has an even number of pages). This is consistent between different pdfs, and also seems to mimic the behaviour of the pdf viewer when Paperpile is running in standard landscape mode (as single full-screen app).
What I’d expect:
Pdf viewer has consistent layout for all pages in a pdf, all of them should be shown as single pages to maximize screen space when in split screen mode. Split screen is essentially two apps in portrait mode side-by-side, so I’d expect the pdf viewer to behave like when Paperpile is in portrait mode.
I hope that wasn’t too convoluted, thanks keep up the good work!
- Update after playing around a bit: Interestingly, the pdf viewer indeed switches to single page layout for all pages after doing the following: 1. Open Paperpile in split screen 2. open a pdf in the viewer 3. minimize Paperpile by pressing home button [4. switch to a different app EDIT- not necessary] 5. switch back to Paperpile (still in split screen mode). Now the currently opened pdf is shown as single pages. When going back to the library and selecting a different pdf however, it’s back to the aforementioned two page layout and you have to repeat the cycle.
