    Love Goodnotes and use exclusively.
    Finding however that Goodnotes is demanding on iPad power so battery consumption feels extraordinary.
    Switching iPad to Airplane mode helps (but is not ideal).
    Thoughts or assistance please?

    From what I can tell, I can only Clear Page for a single page. I teach multiple sections of a class and annotate the slides and then save them for that section number. At that point, I would like to clear ALL annotated slides with one selection without having to select each slide and then Clear Page, then the next slide and Clear Page. Of course, I could import the original document without any annotation, but being able to clear all pages at once would be very useful for me and I'm guessing pretty easy to implement. :) Thanks.

    One more request to find a way to integrate goodnotes and Evernote. Match made in heaven.

    Highlighting can be effective as I drawn this idea from [ ]

    Everyone will use highlighters efficiently if it's implemented. Remembering which Color I have used to highlight important>review>terms>unknown etc is hectic task.

    Please do update Good notes with this feature.

    I so enjoy everything about your app. It is the perfect journaling app and I cannot find another that compares. I have an iPad Pro, but prefer a Note9 for my phone. Please please please consider creating this for Android so I can access my notes from both devices. Microsoft OneNote is the closest I've found that is cross platforms and it just doesn't compare. Thank you!

    take this comment pls💛 I’m one of the students who use this app like 7-10 hours a day
    1. goodnotes always bring my writings(especially moved or copied one)behind the photo! why would i put it there though if it’d not be seen
    2. the new version of goodnotes gives the very low definition for the photo screenshotted within the app
    3. palm rejection is not that good in the gn ver5
    4. i wish to duplicate the color of the pen to the highlighter so i dont have to add it twice everytime i want the new color
    luv your app keep improving pls♥️

    An abundance of keyboard shortcuts for iPad. Seriously! Would love to see easily memorable command key based shortcuts to switch between the most common tools. How hard would this to be add?? In my mind it would hugely reduce the time going back up to the toolbar to switch tools. That way one hand can be on the keyboard changing the tool tip and the other can be using the apple pencil to annote

    The ability to make a quick hyphenated lists or bullets in text boxes please!!!! This would be HUGELY HELPFUL and I’m was honestly sorely disappointed to discover this wasn’t a feature in good notes. After all it is a note taking app! You should be able to seamlessly switch between writing and typing notes. Thank you!

    You MUST incorporate some type of integration for PC users. I have an iPhone, I have an Ipad pro, but I USE A PC for work and at home. THE ONLY REASON I NO LONGER USE GOOD NOTES is that you lack the flexibility of using it on other platforms. One Note does this out of the box natively. It makes no sense why you have not gotten this done! Outsource it. Make a competitive partnership I don't know but GET IT DONE!

    If you are worried about the viability - DON'T! Your market is THERE. You have the best note-taking app out there - hands down. But you are behind the ball on this. Evernote is also cross-platform.

    COME ON! Or send me the APK and I will have someone get this thing coded up. Shit.

    Would like to have colour function that could be determined by what the user first pressed on. Similar to photoshop function, to be able to sense the RGB Colour of what it tapped on and replicate the similar colour out. This would improve writing to similar colour of the image to help the user understand things better.

    GN5 Toolbar is inefficient.

    I do alot of re-arranging my pages after inserting text and images, so I switch between writing and not writing quite often while using the selection tools.

    While I'm in NON-Writing Mode, I can't get to the SELECT TOOL, or use hyperlinks. (in GN4 all these tools are in one place at the top: writing, highlighting, erasing, selecting, NON-write, AND undo.

    IN GN5 I am FOREVER on the WRONG setting. There is PLENTY OF ROOM for all elements to be on the same screen at the top of the page... please bring this back!

    I am finding it very UNINTUITIVE to have to click on the WRITE to find the eraser or the select tool. I don't like how the screen shifts to hide the tools when I select NON-write tool... all that moving around is making me dizzy!

    PLEASE KEEP THE TOOLBAR SIMPLE AND COMPLETE and don't hide the tools on us.

    Customize page toolbar. As a user, I want to be able to customize the position of the icons in the toolbar so that I can quickly access want I want.

    For example, I would like to move the UNDO to the left side of the toolbar.

    In the "zoom in" window that helps writing so much in Goodnotes 4, there are accesible undo buttons. But in Goodnotes 5, those are no longer there and are replaced with buttons to move where to write next. Those backwards and forwards "undo" buttons need to go back where they were in Goodnotes 5!

    Not only is inconvenient because people are used to those buttons being there, but if someone sends a text at the same time I reach to the top of the app to undo something, I accidently click the text and I leave the app to go to imessages (just an example).

    Please fix this. Thank you.

    I just downloaded Goodnotes 5. I never once had a problem with underlining with the "shape" feature on (to make straight lines) in Goodnotes 4, but every other time I try to underline something in Goodnotes 5, the line either disappears (dont know why) or it is not where I wanted it (too low or too high, on the words themselves). Again, this seriously never happened in Goodnotes 4, so it's not like Im a novice that doesnt know what he's doing.

    Please help/fix! Thank you!
