Better controlled writing (i.e. Procreate's "Streamline")
When using the writing option on the app, it’s a little hard to get a neat, straight line if that makes sense. I know on the procreate app there’s something called “streamline” where it makes it easier to write controlled. I’m not sure if this is an option or not, just figured I’d mention it!

Thanks to you all for voting on this feature. We 100% agreed with you that line smoothing on the brushes and pens would be really helpful to make your handwriting look amazing. So in our latest update, which we released this morning, we now have line smoothing! To access line smoothing, select the brush or pen you want to use, and tap the brush settings to the left. The settings menu allows you to adjust size, opacity, and now line smoothing. In our beta testing, we have found users to have different “sweet-spots” on the line smoothing scale, so definitely play around with the levels and find what you like best. We’d love to get your feedback on how you like this new feature, and if there’s anything that could be updated or improved. Please email us anytime at email@example.com with your thoughts. Thanks and happy journaling!

Honestly beyond impressed with the Zinnia/Pixite team. I have never ever seen a company actually care this much about the customer experience. This is a feature everyone has been asking for in every planning or note taking app that exists and you all are the first to listen. You guys are great!
Please add a smoothing/stabilizer option for handwriting.
Yes This is my number one issue with using any type of iPad app for planning. A streamlining option is needed otherwise it turns me away. I would also purchase a subscription if this was included.
Steamline to make smooth brush lettering

I think the app should be able to stabilize brush pen strokes - given that we're all writing on a glass screen and the screen is capturing our every move, even the slightest shiver of our hand can be seen in our letters. It makes it really hard to do even acceptable brush calligraphy. Since this app is supposed to replace my pen case and journal in my bag, I'm looking for the similarity of my favorite real life tools in this app and I think the brush pen is one of my really used tools. For now, if I'll be experimenting with the app I still have to use Procreate to do my custom calligraphy but I'd love to see it in the app too. If it has this feature I'd gladly purchase a yearly subscription as I can see it as a supplement to my paper creative journal.

Smoothing. Yes this is what I immideately needed and I’m so disappointed to not see the option!
Anna 1/28 on Slack: have more control over the writing tools. As a girl with terrible handwriting, it’ll be a lifesaver.
