Choice of notebook orientation and fullscreen in portrait mode on tablets
I am using a Surface Pro 4, and while I find OneNote great for basic note taking, Plumbago would appear to be my potential favourite for a digital notebook.
No way to switch orientation of pages. I can understand if I make a notebook in landscape it wouldn't like being in portrait, but even if I make a notebook in portrait mode, it looks just fine - but if I put my tablet into landscape mode at any time while the notebook is open, it screws up the page orientation.
Also, even if the page stays nice and portrait shaped, the background image (using lined paper) doesn't - so you get tiling lines.
My suggestion would be: when creating a notebook, to have an option for choosing the orientation of your notebook, so that the pages are fixed as either portrait or landscape.
Also, I love the fact you can fullscreen this app - it really does make it feel like digital paper - but it will only fullscreen landscape. This may well be a SP4 problem as I have yet to find an app that DOES fullscreen in portrait mode, but if there's anything Plumbago can do about it - portrait fullscreen would be fantastic.
Also - this may not be a problem in Plumbago, but I have encountered it in other programs on other devices - an option to set "page size", either to a standard paper size such as A4 or to the screen size of your device. There's nothing more frustrating than having either nice looking 100% zoom but about an inch of page at the right hand side that you can't use without constant scrolling, or letterboxing.
Another suggestion would be a button to reset the zoom to 100%, as I can pinch zoom beautifully, but once I have, there's no way to tell what zoom I'm at, and if I am zoomed in it's hard to tell the difference between panning and turning the page.
As I said at the start, overall this app is already one of my favourites, and when these issues are fixed it may well top my list.
Was this fixed? Wondering how to set it or if I am having a hardware issue
split screen ability please. i'm still using antiquated windows journal to take notes on whatever I'm doing on the other side of the screen.
I would love to be able to have Plumbago share a split screen - so I have a pdf on the left of the landscape screen and plumbago on the right. Thanks

The page orientation issue will be addressed in next release. We hope to release very soon.
