Updates & Known Issues



Notebook Pro Updates

We are working hard every day to improve Notebook Pro and make it the best paper replacement app. We are concentrating on making Notebook Pro stable & fixing all problems as they get discovered. We then have so many more plans for the future.


Known Issues

Certain Fonts have Bold style available when they do not support bold natively. These fonts will not display as bold until applied and might be incorrectly positioned. Working on a fix for this.
