Choose page size, journal orientation, and dot grid size
1st request: I’m used to a grid size of 27 dots x 39 dots and many love their bigger B5 journals, is love to be able to change the size of the pages
2nd request: A4 portrait journal

I work with 8 1/2 x 11 notebooks. It is so hard to try and design a page when everything is landscape. I have tried locking my iPad, unlocking, everything, but it’s just such a pain to have turn everything, especially when you are grouping/ungrouping, copy/pasting and resizing objects.
It would be nice to have also portrait format as a layout format for the idividual pages
Love using this app for taking uni notes however it is difficult that when I use a line template I have 2 pages visible at the same time. Would be great if this could become a feature!
The ability to change page size would be great. 12x12 is standard for scrapbooking.

Yes. I would really love the ability to select the size of my journal/pages.
Can choose paper size like A4/A5 so can merge with other pdfs easier

I would like to be able to print out my planners for specific planner sized binders and travel notebooks. Making it so I can choose the page size when I start would make this a looooot easier.

I agree with “Anonymous” about sizing to 12x12 for scrapbooking!!! That would be amazing! Think of all the scrapbookers you get to subscribe, I currently use another program for scrapping and cardmaking but Zinnia’s is so much easier to use. I’d vote multiple times for this one if I could.
If I could change the size of the book to 12x12 in this could be an amazing scrapbook app! Export to jpg or pdf and I can get printed albums.

Let us edit how many grid line or dot per widht and height
It would be nice to have different page/journal dimensions or customizable page/journal dimensions.
I agree with this, it's hard to adjust to the digital dot size - something like matching to the standard LT1917 would be ideal
Jann comment during initial alpha testing 1/8/20: Dot grid spread makes the notebook seems too "small" - because of how many dots their are on the page, the size of the page feels like a pocket A6 instead of an A5. It means that a lot of the "spreads" feel like they're too big. When you size your handwriting to the size of the grid, you don't fit as much as you would on a normal A5 notebook
Slack convo 1/24/20
Whitney: Ability to create your own grid or journal size! This is big for me because I create layouts on a specific size A5 journal and would love if the app matched, and I know a lot of others like bigger sized pages
Nicole: I agree with everything Whitney said. Especially the snap straight feature, ability to create shapes, and the A5 journal with the 5mm dot grid - its definitely smaller now which is great, but it's still not quite matching up.
Nicole: I think the dot grid is accurately sized in that it seems to be a 5mm grid, but that must mean that the page size itself isn't A5 - this isn't a HUGE deal for me, but it definitely would help if it was the standard size with the standard dot grid, mostly for continuity and easy transition from a paper journal to digital.
Johnny: So essentially it’s just a matter of parity with a physical journal dimensions. Is it safe to say A5 is a nice general size to match out of the gate? (Assuming other pages sizes will not be an option with the first version of the app.)
Whitney: Yes! That’s the most popular size. The majority of the most popular A5 size journals used for bullet journaling use the 5mm grid with 39 dots down and 27 across on each page. Really not a HUGE priority, because there are some that vary just a bit from these numbers. May be too picky of me
