Your invite menus need a rewrite on the ui. Is far too many clicks to add an invitee.

I may do some mock ups layer, but for now, frequent contacts needs the option of last used, and the last five or so need to be on the screen belle the option to bring of recent. Don't make me click that button.

There are about seven button presses to invite someone. It should be 3.

Also, shared with me needs to be a tag (out look like one). It would be better by far I'd I could just integrate the shared (invited) items and tag them directly (and allow a whole tag to be invited I've suggested previously).

When using InNote to annotate a multipage document the annotations on page 2 replaced the annotations on page one. I could send the document, but I do :'(think it would be too useful to you.

I'd really like to see two changes in the next version:
1.  I'd like to have the option to always be in multipage capture mode.  I usually rely on Camscanner to crop the pages now, and even if I have to go back and adjust them, or some of them, its easier to do by editing than watching it done in real time.

2.  I want to be able to share everything in a Tag with someone/a group of people.  This will be really powerful, and I find myself duplicating this feature manually regularly.  This would be a killer feature for teachers sharing with students btw.

Hi Ralph! We are going to add the feature of remembering previous scanning mode in the coming V3.8. So in the new version,  if you are using batch scan mode, then next time when you use the app, the default mode will be batch mode. We are looking forward to receiving your feedback after you use it :)

as javi coca pointed out a couple of months ago, I should be able to make comments without sharing a document first. 

Sometimes comments are just to me.  Sometimes I want to make comments THEN share them  with others.

CamScanner's Multiple page capture mode is now good enough that users should be able to make it the default.

I now find that I want to trust it, but when I take out my phone and start scanning, I often find that I needed to back up, and after the four steps of the first page hit auto.  

If you (option 1) make the feature sticky, then i would have the opposite problem of needing to get fine controls when I need to micromanage the corners on object (which isn't as bad as the current situation).

If you (option 2) make it sticky in settings, you have the reverse problem as above, but it's hard to change the choice (not recommended).

If you (option 3) added a fourth button (same as multiple page button) when approving the first image in the set, that lets the rest of the capture proceed as multiple page capture, you  get the best of both worlds.  This option is essentially "make the rest fast capture" (which is what I would have meant anyway).

Hi guys. Nice suggestions! We agree that the third option is currently the best one. We'll try to improve the batch scan mode according to your suggestions in the future version.

The buttons/icons  that show whether you are taking the photo in portrait, landscape or automatic are round.  

They should be rectangular, and in the orientation of the phone to better tell what's going on.

I needed to experiment to figure out how this feature works.  Good feature.  Needs better iconography.

Actually I see what the button does. It leaves the camera in the orientation that it current is in, but makes the picture taken be (auto) the orientation of the phone, (horizontal) horizontal even if the orientation is vertical, or (vertical) vertical even if the orientation is horizontal.

But since my sensors are not working well, I cannot tell how the UI should respond.

Second feature:

- "Landscape" mode.  I have a bunch of photos of things that are naturally best viewed in "landscape" I understand that you might not want to just use the Landscape mode from the OS.  I suggest that you have your own "Screen Rotation" checkbox.  If  checked, and if the screen is rotated, this changes nothing unless looking at an individual page.  If looking at an individual page, it rotates the page image to landscape if in landscape orientation, and in portrait if upright.  the image is assumed to be upright as taken in portrait mode.  

Swiping would then go left/right, rather than top bottom.

This will allow for more natural viewing of landscape images in both orientations, while leaving everything else as is.

Feature request: when I import multiple images from my gallery, it's nice that you auto crop them. However I sometimes import stacks of photos that don't need to be cropped. I suggest you give the choice of crop or no crop for the group.

Instead of having one sticky post for this community, which has both the beta download site and the questionaire, you should at least put the beta link first, since that's what most people are looking for, and possibly put them in separate posts.

Hi Ralph, thanks for your kind suggestion! It helps a lot. We have posted the download link of the 3.7 beta version here when the beta was released. However, it's a mistake that we haven't posted the link with the pinned questionnaire and may confuse the members here, As the formal 3.7 version is ready for release now, we have unpinned the questionnaire. And in the future test, such mistake won't happen again, any contents about a beta version will be posted with the download link. Again thanks for your reminder!

Two feature requests that won't make it into the upcoming release, but you should consider for the following release:

- First, when taking many photos of documents freehand, I like to either hold the phablet with one hand.  I would naturally want to hit the take photo button with my thumb, but you have the button in the middle bottom of the screen.  It should be on the right side of the screen (for right hand people) to allow the image to be snapped easily single handed.  This would still be helpful for two handed operation, because I like to hold the phone by the ends, and I'm still struggling to use that thumb to perform the snap.

 There should be a "Left-handed" check box in the settings to support the 10 million users who are left-handed.

One tremendously useful feature I'd like to see is to be able to share an entire Tag with someone.  This would be especially useful for educational situations where I want to share assignments frequently.

The way this would work is that under a given tag, when there are currently two buttons, Camera and get from gallery.  I suggest you add a third, which is "Invite". It would appear to work just as the current share does, except it would share all items under that tag.

OK, I understand that you considered the idea of automatically sharing everything in a tag, but decided not to do it right now. OK.  (It would be really helpful to encourage collaboration, and promote the use of your cloud service, but you have your reasons).  

Thanks for considering it, and I hope you will consider it again in the future.

I think this is the single best idea I've seen for how to promote and encourage additional use however, for whatever my opinion is worth.
