How can we improve GoodNotes?

an option to have another full toolbox at the bottom of the screen as well

When I'm reading and highlighting a page and i've already reached the bottom part, I think it would be easier if there was another full toolbox already down there so i can start using that toolbox instead of having to reach all the way back up at the top of the screen to switch highlighter colors and erase or undo. It saves time and I think will help me read faster and a lot more pages

        I can't understand why this feature doesn't get more love. I use the highlighter a lot, which I suspect a lot of students do. It's so annoying to have to context-switch to grab it.
        It's even worse with the shape selector, because you use it, then do something, then forget you had it selected, and start to write with it activated.

        And there is the nightmarish scenario of wanting to do straight highlighting.
        1. write (bottom)
        2. select highlighter (top)
        3. select shape (top)
        4. trace (bottom)
        5. unselect highlighter (top)
        6. unselect shape (top)
        7. continue to write (bottom)

        That, multiple times a page.

        Definitely that. It's is a pain, specially on iPad Pro 12, to reach out on the top everytime to change a font size.

        Thank you for the votes! This will really help with the studying since this is the only app I use. I always suggest GoodNotes to my classmates
