Hi all fellow beleaguered Notes Plus faithful
For the last few months I have been experiencing a new issue with a feature I use heavily and which has become a real obstacle to productivity.
I’ve noticed a dramatic slowdown happens whenever I select a portion of handwritten text, e.g. to move it around, or to copy and then paste it. The larger the selection, the slower the response becomes to any subsequent stroke. If a large portion of a page is selected, it can take up to 10s for a finger stroke to be acknowledged, effectively making it impossible to move blocks of text around.
The problem can be somewhat mitigated by restarting the app - select and move works best during the first few seconds of use. After about a minute however things slow down tremendously.
I am running the latest NP 6.3.7 and iOS 13.3 on a 6th gen iPad with plenty of available memory and no problems on other apps, so the issue must be with NP itself.
I had some suspicion the issue might have something to do with the aftermath of the Great Multi-Copy Screw-Up of a few months back, which affected me badly. However, I have now run the data migration tool and cleaned up my files, as well as my Dropbox backup, and the problem persists.
Any advice, apart from finally giving up on this app I still dearly love despite everything?
