  1. 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…

  4. Folders or folios inside journals, to divide months or topics

    In a 12 months planner, I want to be able to close Out months when I’m finished with them, but easily reopen for reference later as needed. Or if my journal has several topics, be able to open and close those topics and work within one space at a time. Page organizing.

  5. Auto-date yearly calendars based on month/year chosen

    When you add a yearly planner template, the dates for each month would automatically be added.

    Once you select the month and year the app would auto fill in the numerical dates for that month for the user. This would also save you on having to create actual yearly calendars. There maybe is a back end thing that you could sink with google or iCal. Since the dates are already known its just a matter of linking the data

  6. Calligraphy pen writing tool

    Now that smoothing has been introduced (yay!) I’d like to see a calligraphy tool introduced to do custom lettering. I tried using the highlighter tool (because it is tapered) with max opacity, but I wasn’t getting the small skinny up strokes and thick downstrokes that I wanted with the highlighter. Plus, if I use a light shade with the highlighter and run back over a section, I can see where I went back on my letter.

  7. Desktop or web version

    Several requests for a desktop version of Zinnia:


    • Being able to edit online to be able to access images and objects from my computer.

    • I would love Zinnia to have a MacOS desktop app which it syncs to, so that I can plan on both my iPad and my Mac.

    • Possibility for a Zinnia windows 10 app and have the option to sync from iCloud devices

    • Be able to make it on desktop for apples

    • I need the ability to view notes on other platforms

  8. Order a bounded physical version of your Journal

    I’m loving this app so far! It’s what I’ve always wanted - but once this year is over, I’d love to keep the whole 2020 journal as a physical book. If this isn’t a thing already, I’d be overjoyed if it became something, even if the prices would be a little higher.

  9. Global community user gallery to share content

    It would be nice if there was a gallery for users to be able to share custom-made content, like new themes they made, new letterings, fonts, headers, frames, etc.

  10. 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!

  13. Layers System

    [Zinnia admin note: It has been asked by several users for some type of layering system, possibly similar to the way "Over" or "Adobe" does it.]

    I think as a Digital Planner user we so need a Layers Panel so we can change all kind of things like Lock and Unlock all Items on the page. Move items a lot easier. Change the Opacity or all items on the page. Also sizing of any item. Also Lock and Unlock Aspect Ratio for all items. Oh and a really good cropping tool to crop images that has multiple stickers like on…

  14. Directly upload photos from iCloud, Dropbox, Google Photos

    Being able to download pics from not just photos, but iCloud, Dropbox, or Google Photos. It would be more convenient than downloading to photos to upload into the app. Direct uploading from cloud storage.

  17. Stencils

    Stencils. HUGE. In digital terms, essentially a masking functionality that would allow journalers to fill in a defined, shaped area with any pattern (flowers), color (rainbow), medium (oil paint), and/or visual texture (glittery!), either original or from their bundles.

  20. Ability to lasso text

    Being able to use the lasso tool to better select text then an option to change the color of the text without having to write the same text with a different color. Doesn’t make sense to be rewriting things.
