How can we improve GoodNotes?

Implement a splitscreen option.

The splitscreens option allows the user to see two pages of one document at once. With this option the user can open an informative pdf on the one side while taking notes on a different sheet on the other side.

    The ability to open two different notebooks side by side, will most likely be available in the next version of GoodNotes. Thanks for your patience!

        Yes this feature is a must if goodnotes is to replace a paper based notebook where one can see two pages at a time or, for a loose leaf binder see non-consecutive pages side by side

        It is so much easier to have all referenced material in one app. I agree it is already done by the competition. Could we have some feedback?

        Not ideal, but can you open the notebook page in another app via iOS split screen?

        The developer of Goodnotes has been silent on the availability of split screen thus far. Please, we’d like to hear from Goodnotes on this. Was looking forward to Goodnotes 5. It’s great but a let-down too that split screen is still missing.

        As a med school note taker, I like to cross reference notes from two different Goodnotes pages seamlessly without having to go back and forth between tabs. I would hope this would be an upcoming feature on Goodnotes 5- perhaps the only feature that would make me do the upgrade from 4.

        And they just released Goodnotes 5 without the feature. I can do it Notability but really like a lot of the feature in Goodnotes that noteability does not have (such as being to add paper in the middel of a PDF or changing paper type in the middle of a notebook.)

        This is a must!!! Two docs or two pages (consecutive from same file) Please do it!!!

        Please. I’m begging you. I don’t want to switch to notability. GoodNotes did many things better :(

        Implementing a splitscreen option would be most helpful. That was the one upgrade I was looking forward to in GoodNotes 5.

        This would be the only reason I would switch to GoodNotes 5. It is clearly essential. Please add it ASAP.

        What the HELL!! I mean Goodnotes 5 is ok, but missing the ONE feature it should have had!!
