MobileSheets and MobileSheetsPro v3.0.0 Released

It wouldn't make sense to leave the size indicator up, because it only applies to the annotation that was just created. My goal in doing this is so that you don't have to switch to a different tool to change the size of the stamp you placed. I'm trying to avoid having more floating windows that stay up all the time blocking parts of the score and requiring ways to show/hide them. 

For text annotations, they are handled differently. If you tap on a text annotation with the text tool to edit it, any changes made to the text tool are applied to whatever text annotation is currently being edited. If you use the radial menu to adjust the size, then there is absolutely no need for having a floating window that does the same thing. The reason I can handle text this way is there a concept of them being actively edited. There is not really the same idea when placing stamps, unless you select them with the selection tool. 


I didn't realize that new text annotations can be modified this way, but that makes sense and answers my request (and I apologize if you already explained that earlier in this thread; if you did, clearly I missed it).

For stamps, you say it wouldn't make sense to leave the size indicator up.  I see your point but I'm not sure I agree with it:  If the semantics of the size indicator are that it changes the most recently applied stamp and all new ones (since it adjusts the default size for new stamps), I can see a use for having it remain on the screen as long as the stamp tool is active. In a perfect world, I'd adjust the size of the first stamp applied in a session and all new stamps in the same session would start out at just the right size -- but in a world subject to Murphy's Law, I can easily imagine a sequence of placing several stamps of different types, and having to adjust the size more than once in the sequence.
