  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.

  2. Enable Good Notes on the web so you can edit notebooks from a webpage on a computer

    I would love it if there was a way to access notebooks online in a way that we could edit the organization of the notebooks. This could be in the form of a website where you can log in to access your notebooks, or maybe making a downloadable app/program for Windows.

  3. Maths

    would love to see more mathematics tools such as a ruler, a pencil compass, a real life scale on the paper, and maybe even a calculator within the app. Maybe a calculator you can move on the screen or click it with your finger to summarize an easy equation? I bought an iPad intending to only use your app for all of my notes when I go into college now, but unfortunately I do not see myself using this app for mathematics just yet. Pie charts, gifs and videos in the notes would also be very helpful. (I could for…

  4. 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.

  8. 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…

  11. 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!

  13. A layer ability, or the option to move an item forward or back a layer to where required

    I think it would be great if we could lasso an item, whether it be pen, text, or image and have the option to move it back or forward a layer. Ie if you write something handwritten then insert an image and lasso the text/whatever you've drawn on top of it, it gets hidden behind the picture. I've love to lasso it, select move to front and then move it on top of the picture.
    Don't necessarily need layers to be like in Procreate but, some ability to move lasso'd items in front or behind other items would be a…

  16. 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.

  17. better textbox gadget!

    Text needs to be improved, like in Noteshelf 2!!!!
    - Bullet points and other text features like tables needed to be added
    - Switching quickly between preset text fonts and sizes, this is really bad at the moment! Often settings just don‘t work.
    - Text boxes are annoying, don't mix well with handwriting and do not fit into the lines of the default page!!!!

  18. less space between icons / thumbnail view

    Goodnotes 5:
    Thumbnail view of the various notebooks as well as the thumbnail view of the pages within a notebook contains a lot of space between the thumbnails - wasting a lot of display area, and making it difficult to read the thumbnail content.
    So: Use much less space between the thumbnails, and make them larger (check noteshelf 2, but make it even better i.e. with even less space than there!).

  20. 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…
