Feature requests for DPT-RP1

[ Edited ]

I'd like a place where people can post feature requests and vote on other people's requests. Does Sony have a UserVoice page for the DPT-RP1? 

 

In the meantime, some of my requests: 

 

 

Annotating

 

- option to change the color of the highlighter and the pen. I'm fine with how things look on the DPT, but back on the PC the annotated files show the highlighter as cyan and the pen as navy blue. I'd like these to be light yellow and bright blue. Seems like an easy change to add color customization in the Digital Paper app.

 

 

Navigation: 

 

- go-to-page option (show number keyboard when tapping on the page number indicator)

 

- On multi-page folder listings (menu > documents in same folder) I'd like to be able to swipe to go to the next page of files

 

- Option to tap near the edge for switching pages as opposed to swiping. Easier and keeps the screen cleaner.  

 

- A 'close' button on the settings page. I find it unintuitive to have to press the hardware button again. 

 

- swipe from top to invoke the top menu. I'm not a big fan of the hardware button

 

 

Other 

 

- more detailed battery info: estimated time remaining, current total screen-on time

 

 

- if possible: get battery from pen, and display it on the reader

 

- faster response when loading a landscape PDF. It takes two seconds to open a file with the same orientation, but five seconds to open a landscape file when in portrait mode and vice versa. 

 

- Future hardware change: battery indicator for the pen. I'm very nervous about running out of battery when away from my desk, because once you're out there's zero annotation, not even highlighting with a finger. Is there any indication of low battery on the pen? I haven't seen it because I'm recharging daily.

 

- better error reporting on the Digital Paper app. I had too much trouble pairing to a Win10 PC, with no error messages at all.

Another change I'd like to see: zoom gestures. I know this can't work like on an iPad because of the low refresh rate, but the following gestures seem simple to implement, technically possible, and would make the experience a lot better: 

 

 

Basic zoom gestures:  

 

- 'pinch-zoom in' gesture (like on iPad) would activate the zoom dialog. The user is asked to use the pen to mark the to-be-zoomed area, the same as is currently done when we tap the zoom button

 

- pinch zoom out: return to full-page view. Simple, intuitive

 

- double tap:  zoom to the previously user chosen level centered where the user tapped, or zoom to 2x if the user hadn't chosen a zoom level yet. Doesn't conflict with any existing gestures/functions afaict 

 

 

Additional gestures while zoomed in:  

 

- swipe in any direction: move the page view in that direction by 100 percent of the view area

 

- double tap anywhere: center on the tapped location while keeping the zoom level (pinch out still moves to full-page view)

 

 

With these fairly simple implementations, zooming and moving around the page would be way more natural IMO.

Re: Feature requests for DPT-RP1

The most important missing navigation feature for me is the "back" function. When you click on a hyperlink, whether it is to a refrence, another section, footnote, theorem or definition (in a math text), etc, you definitely need to be able to get back to where you came from. Otherwise, the hyperlink following function is close to useless.

Makes sense. In browsers this gesture I think is a long swipe across, but Sony has mapped that to 'previous/next page'.

 

They could instead make 'left edge tap' and 'right edge tap' switch pages, which is how the Kindle readers do it. It's an easier gesture, and doesn't smudge up the display.

 

Left swipe and right swipe could then be used for 'navigate back' and 'navigate forward'.
