How can we improve GoodNotes?

Allow searching *all* documents, not just the currently open document.

I *love* that I can search my handwritten notes! The rub is that sometimes something I'm searching for, spans multiple notebooks. It would be *wonderful* to be able to search all of the netbooks for the currently selected category!

    We’re happy to inform you that we have started working on universal search and it will most likely be available in the next version of GoodNotes.

        A global search feature for when you have over 100 notebooks would be highly desired.

        Nearly a year without any update on when we can expect this realy basic and much requested feature? Cmon guys let us know when we can expect it at least. Some kind of System-Level integration would be great too. Searching Goodnotes documents via spotlight would be a dream come true!

        It’s good to see that a search facility has been started. When will it be delivered..

        I agree. Also it would be great to be able to search file names. Let's say one searches for all pdfs that contain a certain string in the file name.

        Do i have to use a huge notebook in order to search anything that i want to find. Allowing search in all documents is a vital feature for me. Waiting for development.

        Can we get a glimpse on the planning on this for me essential update?

        Can we get an update on this? This is a glareing flaw in an otherwise very good app.

        I need this, in the short term I'm exporting all my notebooks to PDF and placing them in a folder to search. Deleting this app until the feature is released.

        Any update on this? The lack of this feature has got me seriously looking for alternative apps, which is sad because I'm otherwise quite pleased with goodnotes.

        The question is what next version means? Next update or a whole new GoodNotes 4 we will probably have to pay for?

      • Mahi_ND commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Can we also have a shortcut to add a page of the same style to the notebook with a single tap, or if this already exists someone please let me know how to do it

      • Mahi_ND commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Can we also add a floating eraser and change pencil color, that can be placed in anywhere in the page, to really make it quick to change between pencil and eraser etc

        I could really use this feature. I see it was marked planned a year ago, is it close to being released?

      • Aaron Ray commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        This is the one feature that's missing to make this a truly killer app. Must throw my support behind this as the #1 feature I need.

        Glad to hear that it's planned. Any update for us as to a timeframe?
