  1. Selective rubber/ selective deleting

    An option to make the rubber selective to specific features would be really helpful.
    Example 1: If you have handwritten notes and you also marked parts of it, you could choose only to delete the markings and not the writings (or vice versa).
    Example 2: If you have notes in black and red, you could choose the rubber to only delete the red parts.

  3. Auto open imported documents after you save to a folder

    Most people who import a document need to use it immediately. The current version saves the document, then you have to navigate through all the folders to open the imported document.

  7. Search for all annotated pages in a notebook

    Sometimes we import a whole pdf into goodnotes and annotate some of the pages. it would be nice to be able to easily search and extract all the pages that have annotation to serve as a quick reviewer.

  9. Performance

    Try to improve general performance.
    Very small written notes (with a lot of text), imported from goodnotes 4, load incredibly slow.
    I can't switch between two pages without "loading-lag", while in goodnotes 4 it works fine.

  10. Gesture control

    Make the new gesture control optional (so we can turn it off, if we don't use it and don't want to risk using it by mistake).

  14. Indentation of “Squared Paper” template

    There is no reason for having the indentation of the “Squared Paper” template the way it currently is. Currently, the right and left sides show no full squares. Resize the squares and/or shift things around so that the left border of the left-most squares aligns with the edge of the paper (and vice versa).

  15. Your tone vs. my needs

    I’d like to respond to the text under “Customer Suggestions for GoodNotes”:

    1st,
    sharing my feature requests with other users doesn’t: 1) help me, 2) help other users, and 3) lead you to implement features I personally want to see, for my own unique use-case. Each user is entitled to their own unique needs. All users’ feature suggestions should be implemented, regardless of what others and/or myself think. Users sharing their ideas with each other only leads to online, intangible arguments. So I do not know why you are making such a statement.

    2nd,
    why can’t you respond to every…

  16. Indexing a Document

    Why cant we have indexing in 5 as we did in 4 ie bookmark and then name the bookmark. I used this all the time in 4 for most of my documents. I really miss it - it was one of the best features.

  17. PDF Overlay with Transparency

    Please add a way to overlay two PDF sheets for comparison/mapping.

    By default PDF backgrounds are clear - can we get a way to overlay the line information from one PDF sheet on to another? This would be extremely useful for architects, engineers, contractors, fabricators, etc.

    For example, in Bluebeam I can take a snapshot anywhere in a PDF and paste it on to another sheet with no white background.

    One way to accomplish this would be with a layer system. Another would be with the option to do an overlay sheet on top of another sheet, with the upper…

  18. Reduce ApplePencil latency

    Considering the high refresh rate of the iPads display, there must be a was to reduce the latency of the Pencil, especially when drawing long lines quickly. Just take a look at Apple's Notes App. There is almost 0 lag, no matter how fast you dran of write.

  20. Larger button

    First, I love Goodnotes!
    Would it be possible to make a larger Return Button. I'm often taking bullet type notes, so I use the Return often, and when going quickly, it takes a moment to look and make sure I hit the button to create the next bullet, as it's quite small. I know this is a minor issue but it would speed things up for me a lot.
    Thank you very much.
    Cheers,
    Anthony
