  2. Add a small, but expandable sticky note that can be placed in margins and uses the text zoom interface.

    Often the pdf documents have ~1" margins and there have been paragraphs that I would either like to add my own commentary, create a small sketch of an idea, or note an idea related to the material. The margins aren't big enough to fit, but adding a whole blank notes page is too large (I use an iPad Pro).

    I request a feature for having a color indicated "sticky note" that fits on either side of the margins and can be placed anywhere alongside it. Tap the little box, and the expanded note comes into view with various options for…

  3. Full screen mode

    The GUI has a lot of "lost space" - especially in landscape mode. Would be great to have the full screen for a sheet of paper with a rearrangeable toolbar. Would be extremely helpful for iPads with 9.7 or the upcoming 10.5".

  9. Dark mode

    I would love an added dark mode option. Having darker greys and blacks could make the app look so much cleaner.

  10. Add grid system to shape tool

    It would be really helpful for engineers and engineers to be if the ends of the lines would "lock" onto the corners of each square on squared paper.

    That would make it a lot easier and faster to draw vectors, circuits, functions...

    But only as an option that can be turned on or off easily like the lasso tool for selecting images or handwriting..., otherwise it would get very annoying.

  11. Knowledge management capabilities

    I am working with lots of pdfs and it's really fun to read an annotate them with GoodNotes. However, I'd like to use keywords and attach them everywhere in my notes (pdfs). Thereafter, I'd would link all keywords for all notes in one or more mindmaps. The, I should be able to access all occurences of a keyword (in all notes resp. pdfs) from my mindmaps. But, it need not to be mind maps. Structured listes (with subitems, subsubitems, and so on) could be a much simpler way to implement the structuring of keywords.

    Crucial in any way would be…

  12. Optimize battery usage of GoodNotes

    Goodnotes is a huge battery drainer, so I hope the next up date will optimize the app resources so it uses less power

  13. Endless Paper

    Sometimes to sketch things out letter or DIN A4 are to short, so it would nice to have endless paper (like OneNote). Which you can scale if you need to print it out. Or have something like 4 DIN A4 papers which fit together with tesa strip.

  14. Insert Video option

    As teachers, we use this to take pictures of lessons on which we are working, allowing students to highlight and write on the photos. Students also create short presentations of their work, which we record. It would be awesome to be able to insert video into Goodnotes!

  15. Add an option to only erase with the apple pencil

    So it is useful being able to erase with your finger, but it would be great to be able to toggle just using the apple pencil to erase to avoid accidentally erasing notes on review etc. and not noticing!

  17. More math options

    Would like to have more options regarding math figures.

    LectureNotes does this very good (see attached image)

    You can create and adjust coordinate systems, grids, dotted patterns, arrows, dotted lines and tables.

  18. Portuguese support

    Hi guys. I love this app, But GoodNotes does not support the Portuguese language. Please fix this. Portuguese and Brazilian users would appreciate this care. Please! With the excellent Handwriting Recognition, it is very important.

  20. LaTex text recognition

    It would be awesome adding some LaTex text recognition so Engineering or science students could be able to take amazing notes. Also increase shape recognition capabilities like Bézier curves. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS APP!!!
