        Hi all. Love good notes 5 and am compiling a notebook for a speech this fall of 2019. I like the ways to insert copy and paste or any image I can see on my iPad screen. But to add a footer and page numbers would be a big plus. For now I must jot the page number on each new page.

        It would be nice to have a "Header & Footer" option for each document, maybe a couple quick preset options and a custom option.

        I really believe as well, that this feature is missing. What I did, is export one of the pages goodnotes offer as template, and added a "Date" and "Title" fields at the top of the page. Then saved it as pdf, and imported it as a new template page. This way, now I have it, however, it is true, it does not detect the date and page number automatically, I have to write date, title and page myself. nevertheless, at least it's there...
        I might have different notes of different dates on the same page, so I would really love some sort of "date-title" text macro, something that you could choose to place where you want it, it would be a fantastic feature.
        In this sense, Notability adds a date and title when you first create a note, but never again on the same group of pages, but we actually need a field that we may add when needed. Goodnotes does not have a mechanism like that at all, so if they bothered to do it, it would be nice to have it like that... more dynamic

        Desperately needed please - until then I'm having to use Adobe which I want to be able to ditch.

        Urgently needed! I use the App to mark up documents which are then paginated for use at court hearings - please add a feature where you can automatically paginate a large PDF document with auto-generated pagination. E.g. if the document is tab 36 of bundle C and the pagination starts at page 345, the feature could automatically add in "C/36/345", "C/36/356" etc in the bottom corner of each page (or any other chosen location). The pagination could then be removed throughout and re-paginated as required for future use.

        I’m new here, and this was first thing I looked for when starting a new notebook. This is a necessity. I see it has been under review for a year and a half! I hope it is implemented soon!

        It would be really helpful. Choice should be to display it in the toolbar or on the paper. If on the paper, one could choose the font and position -- e.g.:
        - horizontally: distance (number + choice of units) from (left edge, center, right edge);
        - vertically: distance (same) from (top edge, middle, bottom edge).
        Enhanced features:
        - parametrizable prefix (e.g. "P. ");
        - option to display the total number of page (e.g. 1/23);
        - starting number.

        Have a look at noteability - being able to have automatic pagenumbers would be so great (and have you tried add a page in the middle of the document, and then rewrite all the page numbers manually? - Pain in the a** :-)

      • Valentin commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Date could be useful. Page numbers is for micro-managers. :-) If you need it, write it manually. No big deal.

        This is a no brainer - I’m surprised it doesn’t exist already

        Who doesn't take notes without a date? Even my 5 year old kindergartener puts the date on top of each page!!! Please move this app beyond kindergarten!

        Yes. Definitely need auto page number. I shared my files to others but took a while to explain where the content was. Please uregently fix this.
