Add dark mode when launching the app. The initial light appearance is frustrating.
we should be able to view the outlines for a page while viewing the page
You can only import documents up to 16 pages. should be more. also you should be able to delete a page while viewing it, not have to go to the mosaic view :)
It would be so cool if the camera\document import from iPhone would work in GoodNotes as it works in other Apps.
Would be cool to be able to import pictures directly from a phones camera without the need for saving it in camera roll. This is useful for Mac and iPad!
1. Every time I change the colour in the toolbar of textbox, the colour often automatically changes back to its preset one (i.e. red/blue/black).
2. If I want to remove the background colour of text temporarily or change the colour of text temporarily, I often need to repeat the same moves several times to achieve it.
(I hope these bugs will be fixed in the next update.)

I love Goodnotes for werything like taking notes and PDF function.
I am using Goodnotes’ TODO list template, but It would be great if we have a dark mode Todo template as well since IpadOS 13 is featuring Dark mode, and I love it!
Could you guys please add the dark mode todo list notebook as well..?
Thank you so muvh!! It is a good product!!
Adding a page to a document was faster in the GoodNotes4. I teach with GoodNotes and was able to insert pages wherever I wanted by hitting plus, add page below and I was good to go. Now it seems I have to first click on showing all pages, then find the current page (which isn't immediately on the first page), then choose to add below, once it does I still need to manually click on that new page. It is cumbersome and I would prefer if we were back to the plus sign directly in the top menu.

Add automatic backup in pdf format to Google drive. Same feature that’s in Good Notes 4
Please connect goodnote with evernote 🙏🏼💪🏼👌🏼👍🏼
You need a way to add sections to a note book. As I’m writing more notes in a single “book” it’s getting larger and larger and it’s becoming difficult to find things.
You really really really need to 1st improve your shape tool and integrate with regular writing tool. This problem has been solved by other note taking app and I’m sure you can find a way to do it!!!!!!

First things first, please move from a forum to tools where you're sharing an organized list, accumulating/deduplicating/organizing ideas and allowing upvoting? I'm sure many other users have had the ideas I'm about to suggest.
-- I second (or fifth, or 100xth) a request for a shape tool in addition to the free form version. (perhaps just pick the shape you want to draw) I would love to create squares, rectangles, equilateral triangles and polygons quickly, and I'm a horrible artist. I'm tired of mashed rectangles...
-- Please add styles/templates to the text editor, so that I can create headings and other repeated markup quicklydddsss. Bullet and numbered lists too. Tables would be really cool, but you can create text columns and arrange them.
-- adding borders to text boxes is incredibly complicated, and may be broken. in my version (5.3.9, 297071.510305518), I needed to create a 4pt border before it would show up on a text box, Also, if I'm attempting to set a line color for the border, changing the color, it might be good to automatically set a line width. zero is a bad default if I'm telling you I want a color.
-- please make the text context menu nclude full formatting features (the menu bar pulldown with border colors, etc),
-- Markdown support -- I imagine it would be like converting text, so a widget could have native text, but interpreted if requested.
I love the product, want more...

Please add the ability to link either to a web address AND also be able to link from one note page to another.
LOVE your app. Thanks!
I use both apps on a daily basis, and it makes it very difficult when searching for note.
A go „Back to reading“ button would help a lot like its available on a competitor app which also starts with good but the ending rimes with feeder.
If I know I have a file open and working on it I currently need to open again any other file so I can go back to the note I am working on.
Problem1: I created a notebook which I put many pics in it. But sometimes the pics can't be copied and I need to restart the goodnotes 5, and then it works.
Problem2: When I open a notebook with many links (link to other pages), only the first click works and then all links are invalid. I need to move the notebook (change its location) to make it work again.
When I do presentation with split view, I often use safari and go back to the goodnotes.
After coming back, the presentation window in external screen is changed and the external screen show my hidden window. I do want to fix the presentation window.
Add colour code to different folders
For handwriting mode it is assumed I’m writing text rather than doing maths (diagrams, equations, etc..). A maths mode would be handy where it auto pans down instead of across and recognised when you’re making graphs.
Also currently you cannot view the bottom of the page in handwriting mode or use the lasso tool which is bothersome, you may have reasons for this but it is just inconvenient for the user.
Keeps crashing commented
Ever since the new update, I can no longer export larger than 25 pages of notes. Before, it can handle 56. Now, it crashes even at 30 pages. Such a hassle. i'm starting to regret buying GoodNotes. It cannot maintain its momentum. Every new update, new issues come up which was not there before. I tried everything from updating my iPad to updating the app. No use. Please fix this. I might transfer to Notability due to this issue. How can I send my notes if you won't let me export a measly 30 page notebook. This is absurd!
