How can we improve GoodNotes?

Infinitely long sheets

It would be nice if we could have infinitely long sheets like in Onenote. There really isn't a need to be restricted to physical dimensions of paper anymore.

        would prefer it as an option. Like a notebook with infinitely long sheets and others without

        I cannot use goodness 5. Infinate scrolling is essential to my journaling and general notetaking. Its hard to understand how a leading contendor for a notetaking app does not have this. Please fix it.

        When pasting text that is longer than a page , it needs to be broken up into smal pastes which is a major pain in the ****

        This is the one feature that means I have to choose another app.
        When you are typing and you reach the end of a page you can’t see where you are typing, this is the only note taking app that doesn’t automativpcally flow onto a new page, Otherwise the app is brilliant. But this is a major flaw for me.

        They should allow the view to be like in iBooks, scrolling vs flip pages

        Is this feature in the works? I use the iPad for wireframing and flow charting, and running out of space while working is kind of a deal breaker for me.

        Even if it was possible to just increase the size of the page that would help!

        A workaround is to make a custom gridnet (you can make one here: https://incompetech.com/graphpaper/square.html) export it as pfd. and then import is as a new page in goodnotes. So you make it obscenely large and then you get it as large as you want. Obviously a page that you can expand as you wish would be better.

        There should be a color fill in box when making shapes so you can quickly change the color inside instead of having to color

        I just want to be able to scroll vertically, like the invention of digital screens implies...
        Take a look at NotesPlus to see how they do. I'm using that and waiting for GoodNotes to implement vertical continuous scrolling before I migrate.

        In Onenote I used letter sized pages to create printable lecture notes and an infinitely long page for lecture presentations. It was wonderful to be able to do both. I’m trying to abandon Onenote as they degrade it with every update, but will be stuck using it for presentations until GoodNotes offers infinitely long pages.

        Ahahah i prefer that App because he doesn't have it.
        If you do it please leave a bigger mark than the mark of Notability, because I want to print all my data later.

        Yes this is a massive problem for me especially when working through long equations I have to mess about with flipping the page it would be so much better to have it like onenote

      • Tashi Walde commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Unfortunately the app is completely useless to me without this feature.
        As sad as it sounds even the basic Notes app which preinstalled on the iPad has infinite pages by default, while GoodeNotes does not.
        When taking notes and especially when brainstorming it is just so uncomfortable to always have to start a new page.

        I would give ALL my votes to this!!!! baffles me that you don't have this. I actually bought the app thinking that this was a standard feature!!!! Kind of heartbreaking that this isn't even in their plans

        René Bazan nailed it. If there are going to be infinite sheets, we need to be able to select a page size for potential printing (real world or .pdf) so that notes aren't inappropriately split.

      • René Bazan commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I would love infinite scrolling too! One could add lines to divide the infinite roll into A4(or another size)-pages to be able to print notes or to export them as PDF.
        Also, only as an option.

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Agree, only as an option because not everyone would want this. I like my notes to be the same as if I wrote the on an 8.5 x 11 inch paper. Makes printing them much easier.

        Please only as an option, not default. It’s useful to have paper sizing fir those of us who like to or need to print things.
