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.

        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.

        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.

        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.

        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.

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

        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.

        Not take away, but have the option would nice!
        I like sth. similar to Microsoft Word: You can see the end and beginning of a page and you can clearly see a page, but you can still see what's at the end of the previous page. indispensable if you're doing some math using goodnotes!

      • Jessica commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        The restriction is the main reason I started using GoodNotes. Please don't take away the pages!

      • Ehsan commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        This is good as an extra option since I like to be able to print my notes.

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I really miss vertical scrolling. I teach and write math with goodnotes and I hate having to flip back and forth to get equations from the bottom of the previous page. Time to try notability again I guess.

        Also, I have a much harder time writing on the bottom 1/4 of the screen and am constantly wishing I could move the page up to get a better writing position.

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Please set this as a priority. I want to switch back to GoodNotes 4 from Notability.

      • dsl89 commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        i was using notability for more than a year now and and right now i am trying goodnotes because i'm thinking about to change.
        this is a feature i really miss! i often need to see what i wrote on the last page. going back and forwards is a pain when the zoom windows is activated! a small grey gap between the pages ("below / above each page") would be fine, but i really need to the the last page! e.g. if you're doing some math, you need to see what you wrote and the end of the last page.
        hope that this feature will come.
