Zoho notebook Feedback

Zoho notebook Feedback

I already have given long feedback to Taylor Backman in Zoho notebook blog. Here I am suggesting you some alternatives to improve current Zoho notebook design and limitation. This is particularly very EFFECTIVE in Windows and Mac desktop version where you have more flexibility to design. I have annotated my feedbacks in attached 2 images
If implemented, It will continue to give clean view but also with great flexibilities.
The first image in which  star mark indicated my feedback and second with notebook menubar ( I am not a designer so i have used the limited tools have to annotate )
Remember I have assumed that currently, notes can only open in a popup. In my proposal, the popup is optional to view notes. Another big thing I have suggested is second secondary vertical menu ribbon on the right side. 



Past feedback
Hi Taylor. Been using your web app for some time but has just kept it on hold. Reason as compare to Evernote or Onenote it was really making me slow due to its organisational and default features. 
Even a non-power user frequently switch between many notes. Now as it doesn’t have Multi windows or left menu-bar or pin feature it is really a pain to use efficiently ( It uses popup so i am very -ve about it even in the future and doubt that multi-window or tab will ever come in Zoho ). Taylor you obviously have used other notes app and probably have understood what happens when there is no multi-tab. It becomes a SERIOUS ISSUE PARTICULARLY ON DESKTOP APP. Come on, this is a note app not a word app. 
The situation is exasperated by lack of proper organisation tool like folder, Sorting, tag. Sorting is in Notebook not in notes. I fear when my note list in notebook grows how I will find or use notes( It become more serious as Zoho uses tiles and thus have less thumbnail information ). 
Another issue Font type which is not interlinked to a note rather than it is to the whole app. Whenever i copy paste from the web it randomly takes fonts. Its ok for me after some time( as I am a medium blog user where I use the same font everywhere and it looks great ) but it becomes complete mess as App does the same thing for font size. Font size option should be within a note rather than in the setting which is unacceptable to any user. Another issue is Option to change the font colour or Highlight it ( Font colour is even present in Medium blog ). As font colour is inalienable to good online notes I really miss it.
 Another suggestion as People frequently closes and open notes there should be Option( Not compulsion ) to open the app in default note or Notebook rather than notebook list. It just wastes so much time. 
I have given this feedback with a lot of work and analysis and covered only critical needs which is must if Zoho has to be competitive with Onenote and Evernote( You know because of Android and Google search hegemony it is not pragmatic to make it look like and compete in the segment as with Google keep ). In fact keep is just a memo app and Google power is the main factor behind its wide use. BTW look at the Google keep on iTunes and you will know whether people desire it or not( It has hardly made any impact after a couple of year of its iTunes launch )
