How can we improve GoodNotes?

Split the screen in two

I am doing a lot of maths (I am a theoretical physicist). For this it is essential to be able to check the previous pages of THE SAME DOCUMENT. I suggest a feature that would enable splitting the screen into two for the same document.

        Dissapointed this isn't a feature as when studying I would have my reading material open and make notes in my pad. Please add the option for multiple pages

        Dual page view would add so much more functionality for this wonderful app. I would have thought it was a no brainer from the start especially on the iPad Pro! Please add.

        I frequently use large .pdf files in which the Agenda is page one and I'm constantly flipping through the pages of supplements. Allowing the Agenda to sit on a split screen while I scroll through the body of the doc would be amazing.

        Definitely add this please! Right now I’ve had to switch to a different app in order to create my study notes because split screen isnt offered with goodnotes ;(

        Maybe not just the same document, but having a pdf text book and a notebook opened at the same time would be awesome!!!

        I'm and 1st Assistatnt Director for films and yes. It would be very useful for me to have this split screen as I'm constantly comparing between script and schedule.

        Is this coming soon? I love ur app but have change to Evernote. Can’t wait my whole life my favourite app to evolve. Really love all the work you’ve done so far <3 Let us know you amazing developers and doers :)

        this would be amazing. Im a med student and frequently need to refer to my anatomy or path books to answer questions. I get really frustrated flicking back and forth!

        I agree that this is a necessary addition for the app. I use GoodNotes for uni study and wish i could annotate a PDF in one tab whilst taking notes in a notebook simultaneously. It is very disappointing that goodnotes does not allow me to view two tabs at once.

        Please add this ASAP so that one can dive in and use this app for theatrical and music production purposes. When working in production with a music score, directors and stage managers need to be able to see two pages at the same time of what they call their “production book” For example, even pages may show the musical score, while odd pages show theatrical renderings, staging notes, choreography, and 1 million other bits of vital info. It would be amazing to be able to do this on an iPad, sync it to the iCloud, and modernize things. Without this feature one is forced to drag a klunky printed production book around a theater or concert hall, sometimes the book is hundreds of pages...it's heavy.

        Yes I am waiting for split screens! Or continuous scrolling!! like in notability..

        yeah, when you put this to practise, it would be very helpful. otherwise it would be sufficient when you just add a future, which allows you to adjust to swip vertical or horizontal, without the 'add new page' function.

        if you like, this could happen automatically, with that the workflow will be better!

        As a teacher I would LOVE to see this. I often need to see two pages at a time for planning. I downloaded google notes specifically for planning but find myself using keynote.
