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.

        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

        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.

      • Richard commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Would prefer this to be an option, not the default. In most of my use cases (calculations) I still need to present the output in hardcopy. The ability to paginate immediately prior to exporting could potentially be a more productive alternative for me (would need to try it!) that would allow this.

      • Stefan Bien commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Would love this for university because we have still this one guy with his endless roll for the overhead-projector. This feature would arm me equally.

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        This would be very helpful when one wants to paste a copied page that is longer than the prescribed page.

      • Guy commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        It need not truly be an infinite sheet (it's not infinite in OneNote either). Just that the pages would "connect" on their short edge, with the ability to scroll continuously instead of scrolling complete pages at once.

      • Bernd Thaller commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I agree that continuous pages are an essential feature (as an option). Page breaks are terrible when you give a lecture using GoodNotes. But there should be a possibility to insert space later, and to insert page breaks for printing.
