Adding a quick note would just add a note without title, which could be edited directly in the margin. You just tap hold a phrase and select the quick note icon. Then an empty note appears in the margin and the input focus is set to this note. This would avoid opening the note edit window and thereby being thrown out of context. Would come closer to real life. Would require inplace editing of notes in the margin.
During a lecture, taking notes after importing the lecture slides as a PDF is painful when you need to highlight and make notes at the same time. Thus, this request is ESSENTIAL. I can't use MarginNote for lectures which is why I bought it. This means I need to do manual paper notes and then transfer them to MarginNote just to organise a summary and create flashcards to study.

Thanks, I'm thinking of UX optimization of the app, it's a very good suggestion, I 'll consider it seriously.
