  1. Enable to create links between pages

    As the contents in the notebook keeps increasing over a period of time, I would like to have a link or connector to a previous page or a different book within the app to quickly navigate to the desired content instead if flipping through the pages.

    • Insert New Pens/Markers

      Allow users to insert new brushes similar to the procreate app. That way we can completely customize our notebooks with calligraphy and other word art.

        • ROTATE highlighted notes and drawing!

          I would love to be able to rotate highlighted notes and drawings. For example, if I draw a diagram of a cell, I would love to be able to rotate that diagram for use in another location.

          • Ability to use additional fonts

            Hello,

            I purchased the full version of this great application and have been using it for some time. The one thing that I would absolutely love to see changed... I mean I feel if the functionality allowed this it would turn this from being a great application to an amazing must have application is the ability to use additional fonts. Why do you restrict the font selection to just a few??? Why not allow us to use any font that we have installed (.ttf) File) in our iPhone or iPad??? I would be elated if you would consider adding this…

            • Split the screen in two

              I am doing a lot of maths (I am a theoretical physicist). For this it is essential to be able to check the previous pages of THE SAME DOCUMENT. I suggest a feature that would enable splitting the screen into two for the same document.

              • Better typewriting support. I mean paragraph text and not just a grotty text box.

                A separate button next to the “pens” for typewriting. This would entail being able to type normally wherever we tap on the page to create an insertion point. This would also contemplate minimal text styling; bold, italic, underline, several colours and the ability to change font and/or font size for any given part of the text.

                  • Teachers need visible rulers! We ar waiting for you, Good Notes!

                    TEACHERS NEED RULERS!
                    Many Teachers at my school use Goodnotes as their primary Tool as a Replacement for the old classroom board. What we math teachers miss so much is a possibility to view the ruler on the beamer image like in the Notes App from Apple. The students need to see a ruler or a triangle ruler so that they can follow the teacher properly. There is no other App that does that. SO GO FOR IT! The Teachers around the world are waiting for this! If you are interested in working with a teacher for optimizing your App…

                    • Universal search (across documents, folders, pages within pages)

                      Good Notes needs a universal search option, so that from the main screen, we can search for note titles, folder names, page bookmark and text (typed or written with OCR). Otherwise, it is nearly impossible to find notes back.

                      • 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!

                        • Audio recording, audio recording to text, handwritten to text...

                          It would be nice to have a tool which can record audio and, when we listen to the audio, we can see the moment that we wrote it. It's difficult to explain the last feature, but I hope that you could understand me.
                          Please, add a tool which can translate the audio to text. And also a feature to translate my handwritten to text, like in My Script Nebo.
                          PD: Sorry because of my english, I'm doing as understandable as I can.

                          • Whiteboard mode - Or endless papersize

                            Actual the size of the paper is fixed.
                            But nevertheless that I use A0 I am limited during Brainstorming and other creative workshops. Therefore I must use another tool (Zoomnotes). But this is not helpful at all to switch from tool to tool.
                            Is there a chance in the near future to implement a more to enlarge the size of the paper endless?

                            • Onedrive integration

                              My company just migrated to Office365 and uses OneDrive. I know that I can import/export from/to OneDrive.

                              What I would love to be able to do is a tighter integration with OneDrive:
                              > Select a OneDrive folder as main GoodNotes folder
                              > everything I move to that folder on my PC is automatically synced / downloaded to GoodNotes
                              > everything I edit or move on my GoodNotes is automatically uploaded into that OneDrive folder

                              That would make it much easier to work with my files in sync...

                              Many thanks!!

                                Currently I can only rearrange one page at a time.
                                If I want 5 pages to be moved up or down in page order, I have to rearrange one by one.

                                  I've tried to print out my lecture but I use too thick pen head, to make it smaller I have to write all of my lectures again with a smaller head. I want to be able to change the pen weight after I wrote sth.

                                        • add a button to add a date to the page.
