Hello

I bought Bamboo Slate A5 few days ago, and overall I'm pleased with it, great product, I use it with Galaxy Note 9, but there are a few annoyances:

-when in live mode I screen android to TV, Inkspace forces me to use portrait mode, despite landscape orientation is chosen in Inkspace. By the way, a great way to play charades on TV

-why when I start using cloud I cannot have these files locally when I'm logged out? I know, I can download everything or transfer somewhere else, but why is it so, that it is a one way option? I will not have them back in Inkspace anymore available without cloud, or am I missing something?

-why localization is forced? Many people complain about it. In theory you can match notes + exact location, it shouldn't be combined if someone doesn't wish to

-jpg export in Windows is tragical, outputs some garbage, 592x864 resolution, but on Android you get triple in x any of that (interpolated? anyway overall effect is great). I know, Windows version is not the main goal, but you could at least repair this thing

-on Android app freezes when you do: move some notes to a group and try to combine them just after moving. At least few times it happened, not always.

Hello,

Thanks a lot for your feedback. It is very much appreciated. I will forward this to the relevant team. Some of the issues you raised are things being worked on (like the jpeg resolution on Windows or the Chrome cast support) and will only get better over time.

For some of your other questions, I have some answers:

Files downloaded from the Bamboo Slate to your phone will always remain there as long as you don't delete them. Files stored in the cloud will only be visible while you are connected to the cloud. If you disconnect for the cloud, the files will no longer be available. This is mainly to prevent that you duplicate files by mistake. This is something that should also improve in the future.

I suppose you mean the App requirement to access location services correct? To clarify, the app doesn't really access your location or stores any location data. You can see there is no location data in the file's metadata.
This notification is needed because the App requires Bluetooth to be active to pair with your Smartpad device. When you turn Bluetooth ON, your location can be revealed to Bluetooth antennas and / or other devices. The permission serves only to let you know about this. It is a requirement from Google for all Apps using Bluetooth. You can see more information here: https://developer.android.com/guide/topics/connectivity/bluetooth#Permissions

I am using a Note 8 and this has not happened to me yet. if the files you are merging contain a lot of information this can happen. Try merging the files one by one. It takes time but should ensure less issues.

Thank you for response. I'm glad you are working on improving it. One more thing , OCR that is implemented in Inkspace is excellent, top performance. I didn't know that it can work so well and I have a very bad handwriting. I'm really amazed.

Regarding some issues, I think sometimes it's enough to let Inkspace work for a while and then it behaves normally. I usually don't have it running in the background, maybe that's the cause. And usually I operate too quickly in any app
