Mind map tools, arrows, outlined text boxes
I am a neurophysiologist and am constantly designing experiments. There are many moving parts and it helps to be able to draw flow charts and mind maps for each experimental design. I know many people have requested arrows, and I just want to ask that in addition to arrows we get dynamic colored text boxes (squares would be fine if they could remain editable in brain-map mode) so that I don't have to lasso things to move them and change how they connect. And PLEASE LOTS of color options and thicknesses with these!!
Yes, different ready shapes are really very needed. common shapes, arrows,lines like found in Microsoft word or, powerpoint are of absolute necessity. I felt the need for ruler and shapes many many times

Mind mapping feature should be added. Makes learning things easier.
In One Note you can keep on writing to the right. It’s really cool. I hope to see the same feature in GN.
Disagree. Keep Goodnotes simple. It is a handwriting app for taking notes and sketches. If you like Mindmaps, draw it manually or use a MindMap App. For arrows, symbols or stamps, you can create your own library of PNGˋs and strore them in „Fotos“ or any cloud service.
Again, please do no overload Goodnotes with dedicated features. It should stay a digital note-taking-app, just replacing the paper.

I would like arrows and other signs like Skitch app for Ios for anoted sketch

I think some of the mind mapping tools will export your mind map as a PDF and then you could add it to your notebook.
Never. Use a "mindmap" App instead.
Besides and with my full respect: Mindmapping is overrated.
Also it'd be awfully nice if we'd be able to make vector-shapes ourselves, e.g. in Affinity Designer :-)
Fully agree with Jessie, using diagrams (engineering, modeling for ex.) within handwritten text require predefined shapes. For example, See how powerpoint implements this in its Insert/Shapes drop down menu under shapes.
There is an Open Source project of the Omni GraphSketcher. It will be amazing to have those capabilities in GoodNotes.
The project is here:
If you want mind maps, use a mind mapping tool like iThoughts. Please don't expect Goodnotes to do everything. It's beauty is in its minimalism.

It is my favourite as I can make mind maps for students assignment
I would love this as well
