I love taking notes and drawing in GoodNotes and it would be great if I could rotate the objects I've drawn on the page. We can already change the color and scale the object, so it would be nice to be able to rotate these objects.2,513 votes
Rotation of handwritten objects is possible in GoodNotes 5. Select the objects with the lasso tool and tap on “resize”. You’ll also find the option to rotate the selection.
i love the app but a mac version would allow me to use my macbook pro when needed and my iPad when more appropriate. please develop!1,593 votes
It is nice to be able to go to the next page going down instead of going left. It would also be nice if scrolling down to the next page continuous without jumping to the next page, so you can see the bottom of one page and the top of the next page.1,514 votes
Vertical scrolling is supported in GoodNotes 5. It can be set in the … menu of a document or in the document settings.
fonts installed on iPad via profile should be displayed. AnyFont app can be used to install fonts (http://www.anyfont-app.com). competitor Notebooks shows all fonts.1,239 votes
GoodNotes 5 supports all system fonts. If you install custom fonts via profiles to iOS, you can use them with the Text Tool in GoodNotes. Tap the brush icon to modify the text style.
Good Notes needs a universal search option, so that from the main screen, we can search for note titles, folder names, page bookmark and text (typed or written with OCR). Otherwise, it is nearly impossible to find notes back.1,037 votes
We have implemented “global search” in GoodNotes 5.
I'd love to be able to have sub folders and be able to add tags to my documents to make it easier to sort them873 votes
We added sub folder in GoodNotes 5. We don’t have a timeframe for tabs at the moment.
Would be great having a feature that allows you to write stuff with a stylus pen or finger and then, if wanted, convert it to text.790 votes
I *love* that I can search my handwritten notes! The rub is that sometimes something I'm searching for, spans multiple notebooks. It would be *wonderful* to be able to search all of the netbooks for the currently selected category!656 votes

Add/integrate the SDK from Adonit for the new Jot Script just announced. This stylus has a 1.9mm tip and is suppose to produce the best experience for note-taking. Just make sure you can disable pinch-zoom while writing to prevent any unwanted issues while writing (maybe have manual buttons for zooming in the menu bar when connected to the stylus?)497 votes
you can do that on the pc (-> pdf xchange viewer) or on mac (spotlight search): if you enter a keyword it gives you a list of every page your word appears on, which is an incredible feature for learning with e.g. your universties pdfs.
goodnotes offers you the chance to look for a word within ONE pdf file, but there's no global search engine - which I believe is a feature a lot of people would appreciate!!

Create more templates that are quick and easy to edit and change. Make a template management system or folder.
Make templates for Work, School, Business, Time Mgmt, Expenses, Budgets etc.460 votes
For GoodNotes 5, we created new paper templates and covers, including calendars, to-do lists and more. Also, it is now easier than ever to manage your paper templates and add custom ones.
It would be nice to have different pen options, like a pencil and maybe a calligraphy pen. I would gladly pay for them as an in app purchase.445 votes
We added a new brush pen in GoodNotes 5 but don’t have a timeframe on a pencil because it can’t be easily done with vector ink.
We are happy to inform you that update 4.10, including tab-support, has been released yesterday:-) Here are more information on the update: http://bit.ly/2a7Bclh
Even though we have some category options, they are limited and the ui is not the best. Implementation of a folder hierarchy structure with a better ui (may be with tags/labels) will make managing notebooks much more easier. Lack of hierarchy on folder management is the biggest problem&missing feature of all note taking apps which are currently available and this difference will surely make GoodNotes the preferred one over other competitors.394 votes
Using the Apple pencil is really cool, but I find that undoing and redoing is really annoying using the toolbar at the top. Having a feature like in Procreate to undo with a 2 finder tap and redo with a 3 finger tap would make taking notes much more fluid.393 votes
GoodNotes 5.1 is now available and adds gesture control for undo & redo.
- two-finger double-tap for undo
- three-finger double-tap for redo

Fixing slow or never ending iCloud Upload. Just a few notes from me get synced to other devices. The most notes are never synced and just get tagged with the Upload arrow.357 votes
We’re happy to announce that we have finally found a fix for the issues with iCloud. Apple’s engineers confirmed that there was a bug with the GoodNotes folder in their own system.
After updating to version 4.11.11, which is available as an update on the App Store, you should be able to quickly sync all your changes and notebooks across all of your devices again.
We want to take the chance to say sorry again to everyone that was affected by the problems. Thank you so much for staying with us during these hard times!
In case you should experience any trouble with iCloud after updating to the latest version, please contact our support.
Why would an app as fine as Good Notes not have text recognition? I don't like my handwriting and would rather convert selected handwriting to text. I'm very disappointed that this feature isn't available.355 votes
To create a table of content with links to the sections and subsections351 votes
GoodNotes 5.0.15 added the ability to create “Custom Outlines”. It allows you to create a table of content for any document. Subsections aren’t yet supported but it is something we’re considering for future updates.
Here’s more about custom outlines:
