Continuous vertical scrolling (continuous page mode)
It would be nice to be able to start writing on the next page while still viewing the bottom of the previous page.
This is something we're investigating while designing the Squid10 note editor.
As mentioned previously, this is challenging since notes in Squid can contain both fixed and infinite sized pages, but we have some ideas to make this work that we will be exploring.

For notes which does NOT contain (infinite size). Continuous pages are only displayed for fixed-sized sheets, eliminating the problem of infinite document size. If by chance the page does contain an infinite size, then a notification informing the user that the feature cannot be used would pop up as long as an infinite page are in the note or adding a new infinite page to a document should prompt the user that it will disable continuous scrolling.
Accordingly, as said by a user from a previous idea; specifically Andy Wang (april 25, 2021 9:43 PM) "It would be good enough if we could just have continuous scrolling enabled for notes which only comprise of finite notebooks, but I think that it would be even better if we could enable continuous scrolling for notebooks with mixed background sizes, where scrolling would only be allowed within intervals of finite sized pages."
Additionally, would it be possible to have like a "space" outside of the "paper/note" since I find it hard to write towards the top, bottom and corner of the paper.
@Andrew Hughes the solution for the problem with continious scrolling and infinite notes is to only enable the continious scrolling setting, if no infinite pages exist in this note. So when I create a new note I can enable the function and new pages will be displayed beneath the first one. But as soon as I set one page to infinite, a pop-up appears that says, that continious scrolling has been paused, because of that infinite page, or something similar. If I change the setting of that page to a fixed size, the note will restore the continious scrolling setting.
If I have a note with infinite pages and enable the continious scrolling setting, a pop-up appears to inform me, that this function won't come into effect as long as infinite pages are in the note.
If you have any other problems regarding this topic, just post these here. I probably have a solution for these, too. ;)
Any updates on this? Otherwise i have to look for a different app .... it's almost 5 years since the last awnser ...

Hello! Has this feature being implemented? I use squid a LOT, but recently I need to do a lot of exercises on imported PDFs and the exercises continues (like multiple answer questions a b c d e) and it's really bad to go forward and back through pages for split exercises.
For doing exercises in PDFs, a vertical scroll is a lot better and fluid.
I'm sadly looking for alternative apps to do this as well (Adobe Acrobat app does that but it doesn't let me do annotations) since it's an important feature for me. Is it implemented? I see people asking for this for almost 10 years now wow!!!
How about apply that fuction to only ”insert PDF”?

This was the main reason not going on with my subscription, beside not having any quick pen selection tool and no folders. Using it professionally with many and large pdfs makes no sense in this case - and it is supported by basically all others.

As others have said, this is one of the biggest things that I feel is missing in Squid. It would be good enough if we could just have continuous scrolling enabled for notes which only comprise of finite notebooks, but I think that it would be even better if we could enable continuous scrolling for notebooks with mixed background sizes, where scrolling would only be allowed within intervals of finite sized pages.

For studying in larger pdf scripts, continuous scrolling is much more handy and intuitive than the hard switching of pages.
In combination with the pen functions for describing and higlighting, Squid would be a perfect tool for students.

One of Squid's most useful features is the variable page sizes and pdf page insertion. I do not want vertical scrolling if either of these features would be compromised in any way. Vertical scrolling is bit of a non-issue for me anyway though, I'd rather the developers focus on making scrolling work without the blocky transparency mask.
but will the page scroll if you accidentally swipe it? currently it's more stable. It will be good if this option is implemented but we have the option to turn it on or off in the settings
I wish I could Scroll the pages when its on A4 paper and not only turn a page over with the arrows.
It's literally the feature that's making me consider deleting the app. Please add.
Vertical scrolling is an essential feature. Anything apart from this is a deal breaker.

Dear Andrew, I can suggest looking at the goodnote app for iOS, this is the model that you can follow in order to make your app really great. I am a student of engineering and use a lot the tablet to save paper while doing exercises. It is very hard to move back and forth with the current page visualization. It would be very nice if instead of having an infinite page unprintable, is better to have an a4 page that we can scroll infinitely adding new page
Sidney Lacey commented
I would recommend it working like notability on apple products, it is one infinitely long page, but with the width of a sheet of A4 paper, with lines that break up the pages and when you export the note as a PDF it automatically breaks it into multiple pages so it is easier when you have to do things like homework and print it to turn it in.
It would be very comfortable if vertical scrolling would be present

The difficulty in continuous page scrolling is the realtime view of the pages that are up. Having this available only for fixed sized sheets should remedy the infinite size issue, while having pages not in view be either rendered in low resolution using the same scheme of a preview mode or in the event a large number of pages or sheets having been written, not rendering those sheets far from the view until the view window moves near. I write huge documents and assignments between fifty to a hundred pages regularly and I can see this is an issue if all the sheets are rendered and is present in Android and iOS tablets but does not appear as a problem in Windows 10 64bit applications. If the file is separated into a temp file during edit and the save file, the temp file can always be the size of a few of the viewable sheets around the edited sheet and should continously update to and from the main save file. This would allow the main file to be of the maximum 4GB 32bit size while the temp can be several orders of magnitude smaller. Also, the drive sizes, and processing power of new tablets can easily allow for this. The main issue is that when writing on a single sheet, it becomes difficult when the stylus approaches the side edge or bottom edge of the screen and allowing for a clean flow and view of the document sheets being edited. Also, continuous sheets would be meant for assignments that are to be submitted as printable PDFs, and would not be used in infinite sheets.
