As you've discovered, VoodooPad 5 requires Rosetta to work on Apple Silicon Macs. This requirement is a known issue.
We investigated upgrading to VoodooPad 5 to run natively on Apple Silicon Macs. It turned out to be a non-trivial undertaking that required removing functionality.
VoodooPad 6 (currently in preview) runs natively on both Intel and Apple Silicon Macs. Since VoodooPad 5 and VoodooPad 6 use the same file format, you can always try out VodooPad 6 and switch back to VoodooPad 5 if it doesn't work.
