  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.

    • 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.

      • 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…

        • 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.

            • 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.

              • 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.

                      • Ability to erase or undo on the spot.

                        It would be great if one could erase or undo while writing on the page by simply scratching or drawing a line over the character or words similar to the "MyScript Nebo" app. Another option could by a double-tap with two fingers anywhere on the page to undo. While taking notes from long lectures or presentations I find it less practical to look up and move my stylus to the top of the page to hit the undo button or switch to the erase tool. This add-on feature alone will make note taking on Goodnotes a pleasurable experience and bring…

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

                          When you take notes, it is usefull that you would like to add a date. This feature would allow by simply click to add the current date or dropdown to access calendar.

                            • Password protected notebooks

                              This is amazing app to write notes, but there is no option to set password on some notebooks, these make more privacy on some personal notebooks , we hope you add this feature in next update.

                              Regards

                              • Disable eraser when using finger with pencil connected in eraser mode

                                When eraser is selected and Apple Pencil connected, current version will erase the notes when you try to zoom with your fingers.
                                Isn’t it supposed to zoom with out erasing anything? Eraser should be restricted to be triggered by Apple Pencil when it’s in eraser mode.

                                • Ability to zoom/scale PDF's to a specific %, and to rotate handwritten notes/lines

                                  My company uses this to draw over PDF's and we need to constantly use a ruler on the screen to scale to 100% to measure. If we could enter 100% scale and lock to this it would be helping thousands of people here!

                                  Also the ability to be able to rotate notes. Seems very odd there is no function for this yet.

                                  • Dark mode

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

                                          It appears that the only way to get a white piece of paper is to use the standard paper. It would be great to be able to change the default paper type color within a notebook.
