  1. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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!

  8. 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.

  12. 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.

  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!

  17. Add more languages for the awesome new optical character recognition.

    Specifically, I'd really like to see Swedish, but I'm sure there are people from all over the place wanting to see support for their language. Cheers!

  18. 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!!!

  19. 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

  20. Expandable folder/file list

    If there was one thing I could change or add to it would be the library view, I don't particularily like the virtual bookshelf that so many apps use. I'd much prefer a simple expandable folder/file list, ideally sortable on file name and revision date.
