How can we improve GoodNotes?

Convert Hand Written Notes to Text to the Same Page, additional feature to the export in converted to text.

Please please add a feature to convert hand written notes to the same page. You offer to export the converted hand written notes to text, but you should allow to change the notes in the fly to the same page you converted. Please! Your note application will supersede all others with this feature!

    Please make this happens it would be super useful for college students and business people alike.

    Soy formador online y sería de gran utilidad que aquellas notas que comparto con mis alumnos en las clases en directo, poder convertirlas directamente a texto en el mismo momento sin necesidad de tener que enviarlas o compartirlas. ¡Muchas gracias!

    AND ... to be able to canx, edit, copy or replace the converted text PRIOR. Some text conversions are spot on while others aren't.

    The ability to correct the converted text before taking an action makes the workflow much more efficient.

    Like many others, I am baffled this is not how the feature was initially implemented. This would be a great addition to GoodNotes

    The only thing Notability really is doing a better job at the moment. Such a good application with just a little deficits.

    I honestly have no idea why they haven't implemented this. I mean jeez even on an ugly coding method it'd be simple, "lasso" the whole page, text box whole page, paste. A lot harder for the user to do that, and it's been a requested feature since...well as far back as I can see them having handwriting integration.

    I was honestly baffled this wasn’t one of the main features the app included, sort of dissatisfied that this app costs so much but doesn’t have this feature. I will stay disappointed until they make this update because this is something that NEEDS to be included.

    Yes! This. Some folks may like leaving their handwritten notes,but most folks will want text to stay in their notes!

    I was ready to but the app, then I noticed that this (what I would think is the most basic of features) isn’t supported.

    Nebo will convert to text only within the Nebo Application. The text must then be exported to a Word document similar to what must be done currently in GoodNotes. I need to place cursor in the Word table and have handwriting converted to text as I write, expanding the table as text is added (not do extra conversion/export).
    If GoodNotes could import a Word document with tables, the cursor placed into each table cell and expanded with text converted from handwriting (with no two-step export process), that is what is needed.

    Nebo integration would be fine.
    The recognition of Nebo is by far the best there is at this moment

    Eagerly waiting for this update. If I can also convert flow charts like how nebo does then there’s no competition.

  • C Cherry commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Add my vote for Nebo integration. It would double the value of the app for me. The Mac text conversion is nice, but my goal is to travel only with an iPad Pro.

  • F D commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Will this function be implemented in GoodNotes 4 or in a newer, "redesigned" Version of GoodNotes (Maybe GoodNotes 5?)?

  • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Nebo has this feature and works well! I suggest you add this feature to goodnotes. It will be perfect.

  • WC commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Adding my vote to the mix, please please add this feature!

  • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    So it’s now Jan 2018 and this function isn’t available?other apps are superior based on this function alone!
