Hi Earnie

I've recently gotten into using screen shots in a big way to make flash cards from what I'm studying. For example, I'm studying on LingQ, and I want to make a flash card of a word, I screen shot it, then look up the word, and screen shot it again. Then swipe over to FCD and add both images but on the first image I'll do something to indicate the word being tested typically add a rectangle or an arrow. I'm really happy with these cards. If I do it on the iPad using the Apple Pencil, marking the word is really easy. But on my iPhone, sometimes it takes a few tries to get it right. If I could zoom in on the image that would really facilitate it. Is that a hard feature to add? Or maybe I'm not doing it right and you can already do it?

If you haven’t tried making cards like these I suggest it as I am enjoying them quite a bit. Anyway. I just found out you can tap the little icon of the screen shot right after you take it and then edit it and it lets you zoom and add rectangles too (no arrows) but that seems pretty good for what I’m doing.

Hi Kraemder,

Cool, I'm happy to hear you've found a fresh way to look at things.

The app won't let you zoom in the draw screen. This is not going to happen anytime soon because of the difficulty. Sorry. It sounds like you have a workaround by using Apple's built in editor. That is my recommendation... if my simple editor doesn't cut it... use a more advanced tool.
