  1. Have color swatches stay fixed, not connected to the brush

    If I want to use airbrush red, airbrush blue, and airbrush green frequently I will try to set up those three items in my tool tray area... but right now the color travels with the tool type, not the slot. It would make more sense if the color stayed fixed with the tool+slot and not just tool-type. That way I know what to expect when I reselect the airbrush in that slot. It will be how I left it. Am I making any sense here? No? LOL I will include a video below to explain...

  3. Working with darker colors it is sometimes harder to see user interface

    when I was working with dark grays the user interface overlay elements were not really that visible anymore...

  4. Magic brush to apply stickers, washi, etc. with brush strokes

    So any little collection of related stickers maybe could be applied in a seemingly randomized ribbon w/my ink strokes? Can you picture this? Let me just put a video in here. I’ve seen this called Magic Brush a couple times.

    We’ve been hard at work on the iPhone version for Zinnia, and we’re excited to say we’re in the testing phase! If any of you would be interested in testing out the iPhone version (and you do not already have the iPad version) please get in touch as we’d really like to speak with you. Thanks so much! – Rebecca

  9. Ball-point pen tool

    Jann during initial alpha testing: Have a "ball point" option that isn't pressure-sensitive to make writing in print easier. Tech pen... has quite a bit of variation (almost like a brush pen)... hard to write neatly

  10. Adjust UI to better indicate selected tool, color, line width, opacity

    The little tools change a tiny bit when you select a color. Like, the tip of the pencil turns the shade of blue I have selected. But it does not change much and the tools are kind of small.

    Could you make the body of the tool change to the color I selected?

    Can you make it easier to tell which tool I have selected by having dramatic drop shadows appear (for example) when I have “picked up” the tool?

    I am also weirdly frustrated by the opacity and stroke. I am constantly surprised when that tool I select has…

  11. Stamps or stamping tool so I can duplicate stickers quickly.

    I want to be able to put the same sticker on the page over and over... without having to re-select it or take multiple copy-paste steps... so I can do it rapidly and fluidly. In other words, I want stamps!

  12. UI changes to reduce taps in Editing mode

    I realize this might be due to technical constraints on the back end, but if it’s possible, I think tapping on a tool that belongs to another mode should be sufficient to exit that mode and enter the mode of the tapped tool. The goal being that frequently used actions should be one tap.

    Even actions from the sticker library should have the option of becoming one tap if the user chooses to pin the sticker tray/box open. I’ve tried to draw a sketch that visualizes the concept of one-tap-to-rule-them-all (attached!) but I’m sure you guys already have all this…

  13. Sort and filter pages and journals by name, date created, date updated, or reorder manually

    The journal page thumbnail display. I'd like to see the timestamp(s) of the page with its thumbnail -- create date, last edit date. I also want the ability to sort & filter by create date and last edit date. I also want to be able to name each page so that I can search for it and sort alphabetically. All this so I can group, section, identify, and find my pages in ways that make sense to me.

    I know you can name the journal but I would like to open the journal and see the name of each note…

  15. Ability to mirror flip content

    Ability to mirror flip content. This would be helpful for thought / speech bubbles, or other content where the direction of the content matters.

  16. Ability to stretch content / unlock aspect ratio

    Ability to stretch content so it fits better horizontally or vertically. For example, I want this paper background to fit my spread perfectly, but it's just slightly too wide. I'd love to be able to shrink the width just a tad so it fits the area.

  17. Put Delete, Forwards, and Backwards buttons in the same place as Copy, Paste, and Lock

    Put Delete, Forwards, and Backwards buttons in the same place as Copy, Paste, and Lock. Not sure why these buttons are separated, but since they all impact the selected content, it makes more sense to have all these actions grouped together.

  18. Dot points in Full Journals line up to dot grid

    It would be fantastic if the dot points could line up to the dot grid!

  19. Tabbed journals with dividers, index hyperlinks, or table of contents

    Being able to click between dates in your journal or entries to help organise (which can also mean tabbed journals are an option) would be fantastic.

    Thanks for this great request, and to everyone who voted. We absolutely agree that this would be an amazing feature to bring into Zinnia. Our Design and UI team is hard at work exploring the different options, talking about needs with users, and creating design specs. If you have feedback concerning this request, we’d love if you could write a comment on this Uservoice ticket. That way we can really understand the pain-point here, and what exactly you are looking for. Thanks so much!

  20. Photo Frames

    As using your iPad means you have access to your photo library, it would be awesome if you could use Zinnia for logging photos as well, and in a pretty way with nice layouts like Unfold has available for instagram stories.
