  1. Custom Labels and Calendar

    I would like to see some type of label feature that allows me to organize my notes in multiple ways. This could be used to apply custom labels such as “Meeting Notes” and “Follow Up” to a page so that I can easily look for all notes under meeting notes or under follow up without hoping that the search feature will recognize my handwriting every time.

    I would also like to see a calendar feature that allows me to easily find notes I took on a certain day. I regularly look back on notes that I took during a meeting…

  3. cropping multiple pages and splitting the scanned pages in the middle.

    When i scan a book , it is faster and more convenient to scan to pages together and we also get some black spaces because the size of the book doesn’t match the size of the scanner.

    I want to be able to crop the pages (get rid of black spaces) and split the ‘ two page’ scanned page in the middle.
    This site is doing the task but we have to pay for that

  4. More shortcut gestures for common actions

    Being a Concepts user as well as woodnotes (they serve different purposes for me) there are several gestures which greatly increase productivity for me:

    - tap two fingers to undo
    - tap/hold the pencil for 1 second to activate the lasso tool and quickly move something. Just like the eraser is can auto-deselect.

  5. Faster way to get back to root level of documents tab

    GoodNotes 5 supports infinite levels of folders and subfolders. If you opened a document in a folder that is on a deeper level, it requires a lot of taps on the back button to get back to the root level.

  11. Change Canvas Size of Imported Pages

    It would be great to resize imported pages. For example, I import a lot of PowerPoint PDF pages, it would be nice to resize page canvas size to allow more room for sidebar notes.

  15. A Chinese(Simplified) translation error in GoodNotes 5

    There is a translation error in GoodNotes 5, just inside the red circle in the picture. It's the translation of 'Convert to text' in Chinese and it should be '转换成文本' instead of '转换陈文本'. Hope you fix that, thanks a lot.

  18. 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!!!!

  20. Get Rid of the Carriage Returns on Converted Text

    I like to convert hand written notes to text for transfer to Word etc. having to deal with the carriage returns your converter puts in is a pain. It would be much better if the conversion just used word-wrap and let us deal the the txt box shape.
