  1. A page reorganiser

    A way of reorganising your notes across notebooks, to drag pages from a source notepad into a target notepad easily.. eh setup a new notepad, go to other notepad and select page and save to other notepad. Hence like taking/copying a page into another notepad

      • face id required for iPhone XS

        Face ID support for iPhone XS Max expected, understood that many users have posted the request of password protection and good to see which has been marked as "PLANNED". This is an additional request for the Face ID support for said password app lock as all of the new iPad pro 2018 and iPhone XS Max have switched to Face ID system. Thank you.

        • Overall Implementation Suggestions

          1. When using the Zoom functionality.
          - While in zoom mode, when using the lasso tool, zoom mode should not end. This breaks imerson when taking note.
          - On the zoom mode's tool bar, there should be shape recognition, the lasso tool, and the highlighter as well.
          2. When viewing a specific page of a document, the user should be able to zoom out further than the dimensions of the current sheet.
          - This would give the user a better view of the entire page as a whole.
          3. Integrate programmable functionality with the Apple pencil 2's double tap functionality. …

          • Better File Tree

            I don't mind the current category interface, it just isn't deep enough. I use my tablet for work and personal, I have a Master Category for each, under that I have my different projects, it would be nice to have at least a third layer in order to organize phases of a project or notes from different individuals working on a project.

            Master Category - Category - Sub Category - etc.

            • 改进反人类工具栏。

              建议工具栏改成可以悬浮的工具栏,每次用橡皮,换笔都要移动到最上面工具栏才能操作,这是一种很差的用户体验。功能上确实已经做的很好了,工程师们辛苦了,但是用户体验真的是垃圾,可能工程师都不用做笔记,这么大的公司难道没有做用户体验设计的吗?
              悬浮工具栏按钮的功能,悬浮栏位置,大小,可以用户自定义。希望快快更新出来!

                    • landscape

                      It would be great if individual pages could be put in landscape mode. Helps alot for us that often use iPad in this orientation.

                      • Hacer que el barrido de escritura sea automatico, como el de PENULTIMATE

                        En vez que tu muevas tu mano, que la hoja se mueva por si sola mientras escribes asi como lo hace la aplicacion de PENULTIMATE. Esto creo que ayudara a tener una escritura mas fluida.

                            • Enable a "Back" link. PDF "Back" links work until I import the PDF into GoodNotes

                              Enable a "Back" link. PDF "Back" links work until I import the PDF into GoodNotes. I know there is a "Back" menu item but it would be so much easier to support it via a link on a document.

                                  • Add an cancel button to the document open area

                                    Sometimes tou go to open a document only to realize you don’t have to. Which requiresyou to select a document to get back to the originally opened document.

                                      • Password

                                        The only thing lacking is password protection for the app in general or each individual notebook.

                                        I love this app but still hesitate to use it for my work. I deal with many sensitive topics and being able to guard my notes is a must.
