A pen/drawing tool that creates straight lines, shapes, arrows
We've begun working on this feature - stay tuned!
I would like to have the ability to straighten the lines when I use the pens for handwriting and highlighter.

Like other apps it would be really helpful to have snap to shape while in drawing mode so it’s easy to get perfect lines and shapes
Snap to straight line, square, etc.

This would allow you to know how big your creation is. So if I need to print something off for another project I can make it the correct size, and not have to adjust it after each print

I think its called a snapping tool? where you can draw then hold the the pencil in the same spot for x amount of time so that it automatically creates a perfect circle or line. Lots of drawing/art apps have it and I think it would really beneficial to add to Zinnia.

Allow free-hand creation of custom sized square or circle shape
customize border size, color, and background
Shift to make ratio consistent
Ctrl to move transform origin from top right to center
This!!!! I specifically made an account for this site to either find this recommendation or make one my own. I LOVE this.

This would make zinnia the PERFECT planning app....right now I have to toggle between goodnotes and zinnia

Surprisingly a the straight line is missed. Please do so 👏💕

The ability to draw straight lines, crop objects & stretch objects is what I’d like to see.
This is the main feature that is keeping me with goodnotes instead of transitioning to zinnia, it's very important for how I plan out my work schedule for the week.

For sketchbooks! Allow long-press to straighten drawn lines. Straighten curved line with long-press. Drawn triangle, ellipse, circle, square, arrows convert to clean shape w/ long-press. Toggle on-off grid-lines with adjustable widths— not actual grid in the page. Auto-draw features like Snap line to grid. Different drawing grid angles like square, isometric, symmetry. Basically I’m asking you to embed the features of Procreate Lite. Even better if we could edit and import popular file-type brushes to make more “art supplies”: gouache, calligraphy, watercolor, acrylic, oil, smudge, blender. Customize basic & allow creation of new nameable collections of art supply color palette collections: e.g., Siam Sunset palette, Neon rave. Color picker options to stay on screen are excessively limited. Name default palette colors as per art conventions: Thalo Blue, Prussian blue to look aesthetic like the real art supply array…As seen gorgeously in the Moleskin sketchbook app. Allow infinitely long paper, endless scroll with bookmarks to skip around, like Moleskin app.

We need snap to shape very badly. That feature may make zinnia my go to app for all planning.

A shape tool would be outstanding. I was surprised this wasn’t already a feature in the app!
It would additionally be cool if you could define a shape as a container, that way you could place imported photos (or anything really) into that container!

When I draw in my journals I draw my own mood trackers and can never draw perfect circles or shapes. I don't like using the stickers because they are very specific styles that sometimes don't fit my aesthetic.it would be so lovely if there was an assist to help with it.

YES PLEASE! I just started using zinnia and I am a bit disappointed that we cannot make straight lines/snap to straight lines, create shapes like squares, rectangles, circles and such. It seems like such a basic feature! I wish there was a way to create our own grid as well.

Totally agree with the Ruler!!!
Yes yes yes yes!!!! This is definitely the feature that keeps me going to google notes. If you had this I would not use another note app
This is definitely a necessity for an app like this. I’m surprised it wasn’t added sooner, especially with other apps having this capability for iPad already. Really hope they implement this soon!
