  1. Infinitely long sheets

    It would be nice if we could have infinitely long sheets like in Onenote. There really isn't a need to be restricted to physical dimensions of paper anymore.

    Hey everyone, in GoodNotes 5, we added the ability to set the scrolling direction to “vertical”: https://support.goodnotes.com/hc/en-us/articles/360000118135-How-to-set-the-scrolling-direction-to-horizontal-or-vertical

    We’re using a framework for page handling that treats every page as a separate file. This allows things like:
    - export of a selection of pages
    - easy reordering of pages within a document
    - rotation of pages
    - adding images/photos as standalone pages
    - mixing multiple file types (PDF, Word, PowerPoint, GoodNotes) in a single document
    - etc.

    Since each page is an individual file, a truly infinite sheet is not feasible with the current framework.

  2. Create folders within notebooks

    To be able to organise pages into sub folders 'within' each notebook would be very useful.

    In GoodNotes 5 we implemented the option to create infinite subfolders to replace the concept of “categories” in GoodNotes 4. Consider using multiple documents in a subfolders instead of adding everything to one notebook. If you want to further divide your notebook internally, you can use bookmarks or custom outlines to label your pages.

  3. Include Recorder

    Be able to record session (voice and desktop), to broadcast a lesson or presentation. Like in explain everything...but GoodNotes is better!

  5. Add a Mac Version of Goodnotes5

    Goodnotes 5 is amazing. Thx for listening to us and adding so much long time requested features! But one great feature for me was the mac sync. And now after purchasing gn5 I noticed that the mac version does only work with gn4 and there is no v5 on the mac. So I cannot use my notes on the mac anymore?!

  6. Display name of the notebook inside the “Move to Trash” confirmation dialog

    Before confirming deletion, could the dialog include the name of the notebook I am about to delete? I often feel unsure whether I tapped on the right document.

    Just if other users would find such feature useful as well...

    Thanks for a lovely product!

    Thanks for the suggestion. We’ll consider it. In the meantime, you can always use the recovery feature in the trash to recover accidentally deleted documents. You can find the trash in the menu.

  7. TEMPLATES

    As a student I like to use different colours for different subjects - I think pastel coloured A4 templates with both narrow and wide rulings plus a margin would be very useful.
