  1. Add Palm Rest to GoodNotes 5

    Add a palm rest option to GoodNotes 5 like there was in GoodNotes 4. It makes it a lot easier to make notes on my iPad, especially when getting towards the bottom of the screen where there is no option to move the paper higher so I can rest my hand on the screen. It's very hard to write with my hand held in the air trying to balance on the edge of the iPad. Hope what I've described makes sense.

          • MAKING 3 COLOR SELECTION TO 6 IN GN5

            I'v been taking a lot of notes on my IPP 10.5 with GN5 & I constantly struggle in changing colors within the 3 color selection options. I just had an idea - we can make it as 6 by adding a way of double tap switch. It would be innovative and extremely useful.

            For example I use 4 colors mostly, as do most of us I suppose viz. Blue, Black, Red, Green. If this was to be implemented - I would use Blue & Black in 1 Selector, Red & Green in the next & additional switchable ones in the…

            • Variable grid size on square paper

              Variable grid size of the background grid on the square paper. For example 4mm Boxes would be very nice!

              • An error occurred with the cropped PDF

                In the same PDF cropped by Adobe Acrobat Pro DC, the text selected by GoodNotes4 is normal, while the text selected by GoodNotes5 needs to be at the top of the text. The blue check box clearly shows that the text is offset, but The correct location can be found by using the search function in GoodNotes

                  • Selecting a tool that is already selected

                    When selecting a tool that is already selected, the default behavior should be to close the tool, competitor apps have this behavior. Currently, to close the tool, you have to tap outside the menu for the selected tool.

                    The current behavior is to re-open the tool, which is kind of weird, try it yourself, tap the brush tool then select it again, it just does the tool-selection animation again.

                    • Enable hyperlinks!

                      Notability - you drag and drop a url in. You can then click on the link and open in a browser.

                      Goodnotes - it just copies plain text from the webpage. Urggh.

                      • Set reminders for notes.

                        Guys - the ability to snooze/set a reminder for a note would be amazing. When i'm using notes to generate ideas etc i often want to come back to them but you get busy and forget. A prompt would be invaluable (similar to 'nudges' in gmail) thanks

                          • Please please please vertical continuous scrolling for goodnotes sake!!!!

                            Cmon guys this is why so many are switching to Notability. We want Goodnotes but you force us out by your refusal to have this feature that even Apple notes uses. C’mon......?

                                  In GoodNotes 4, if the iPad was connected to Beamer the second screen was hided. As a teacher I saw the Screen the students saw AND my notes for the lesson (for example pages) but Students couldn’t see. That was great. Can’t find the option in GoodNotes 4

                                    • Fullscreen Mode with annotate/writing option

                                      It would be useful to be able to edit a document while being in fullscreen mode.
                                      Having some kind of guesture or small button to toggle the fullscreen mode in that case would be great. As of now there always is a menu bar displayed on the top.

                                      • Zusätzliches Format: unendliches Papier

                                        Unendliches herauszoomen in diesem Format ermöglichen um die Begrenzungen von Seiten aufzuheben. Sehr hilfreich bei Entwürfen und Mindmaps
