  2. Plz give me back the Zoom tool!

    1.In the Zoom Window, eraser, frequently used color, backward, etc. have disappeared. It is annoying because the move is long.

    2.After all, it does not seem to support two page views at a time.

    3.No highlighter in Drawing Shapes. Drawing shape with Highlighters are only linear ...
    At Goodnote 4, i can draw circle, triangle, etc with highlighter.

    4.There is still no changing the template at once ....
    When I write i use grid and i print i with only white page.
    I have to change it every single page.

    5.On the preview page, version 4 shows the current page…

  4. Invisible Undo/redo Slider on two finger tab to allow undo of multiple pencil strokes with precise control

    The new two finger tab undo feature is awesome, but I think that it can be taken a step further with an invisible slider to undo more than 1 event. Imagine you wrote a whole bunch of stuff, or accidentally stroked your pencil across the page and made several strokes as it bounced a little to make tiny little strokes. What’s easier? double tapping ten times with two fingers? Tapping the undo button multiple times?
    OR...
    double tap with two fingers, and slide to the left to remove as many strokes as you see fit, and if you go too…

  7. Personal language font

    It would be great an option that ask you to handwrite some numbers and letters to make your personal font, so even if you haven't the pencil with you,you could take notes without make drastic style changes

  8. add options for the highlighter marker

    I usually draw in my notes to make it more clear, and some times i color the figures with the highlighter, but there are 2 main problems:

    1) there is no option to prevent the line becoming darker where
    you have already passed.

    2) Some figures need a smaller size.

  9. More flexible toolbar for split view on macOS

    The toolbar should be small or flexible enough to allow a smaller windows for the split view in macOS. At the moment GoodNotes uses almost 2/3 of the screen, in previous versions with the hidden toolbar you could size the window freely.

  10. Edit the tool Bar

    You could let us choose which tools to add to the bar... So that we could easily find the more frequent tools we use and discard/ hie the ones we don’t.

  11. Allow more customization of outlines.

    I would like to create sections and subsections within a custom document. Currently I can only create a list of pages that compose the outline.

  12. Bulk import and export of PDFs

    I need to grade term papers and would love to simply sync (or drag and drop in the GoodNotes desktop app) a folder with PDFs and export all of them in one step when I am finished.

  13. add tag color or pattern for faster tag/file management

    can you add color selection on the tag, that we can distinguish the tag more fast and intuitive? (when the tags and files increased, the more difficulty to find the correct tags i need )

    eg: just like the picture i upload, thanks !

  14. Allow toolbar customization

    Allow us to move around tools so we can pick the order they show, or whether they show at all. Just like many Mac apps allow toolbar customization.

    This would also allow the option to show/hide other functionalities that have been requested but might not fit in toolbar. For example, if “search” were an optional toolbar item, then we could choose whether we want it to take up toolbar space.

  15. Neutral-coloured navigation bar option

    The way I use GoodNotes (and have for 2 years) relies heavily on colour coding. It’s a creative process to make notes and the new blue colour of the navigation bar inhibits the feeling of starting with a blank canvas. (Like a painting app with a blue UI.) It seems to interfere with my colour associations.

    Please add a toggle in the settings to turn the navigation bar grey like when the pen is disabled.

  17. Import “in the same folder” option

    While importing a file (e.g., from a mail attachment or from Safari) in goodnotes, it should be proposed to import this file in the same folder than the currently opened document in Goodnotes. For the moment, the only options are import “before current page”, “after current page” or, in the bottom of the import window, “change location”.

  18. Different color options for the folders

    Currently all folders appear as blue. It would be great to organise folders with different colours (e.g biology- green and maths - red)

  19. Improved Bookmarks

    Like bookmarks for different parts on one page and are able to name the tags, sounds a bit of like MarginNote(which is also a great app), that will be very useful to long pdf notes which can’t be located as easy as keynote pages. I love your product very much, using it everyday and I sincerely hope that you can figure it out someday:)

  20. Auto shape function

    Coming from Notability, I feel the strong lack of the function that allows you to draw straight lines automatically by holding the Apple Pencil on the sheet for a moment longer, without having to select the lines tool each time and then return to the pen tool.
