        • For vertical writing sentences of Japanese, I want the scroll from left to be able to right.

          Japanese, as it may proceed to write from right in vertical writing to the left.
          In that document, it is difficult to read in the normal scrolling direction.
          So, I want options, such as can move to the next page in the swipe of right from the left.

          • SugarSync

            Please add SugarSync. It's much more useful then Dropbox for me. There is an API available from them

            • Enable handwriting to text conversion for entire notebooks without needing to select text from each page.

              The handwriting conversion is excellent, but it could do with a couple changes. Having to lasso the text on each page is tedious. Please enable the ability to convert a single page or an entire notebook with a single click. Also give the option to maintain or ignore single end of line breaks. Maintain double line breaks to keep paragraphs.

                • Summary of annotations

                  I read my school books using goodnotes because of it's features such as scribbling, adding texts and inserting photos. What would make this app perfect is if it could summarize all the annotations that I've made in the books such as the words and phrases that I've highlighted. This feature would save students time since they do not need to transfer all these info in their notebooks specially when they review for exams. All annotations can be viewed in a single or multiple pages. I hope developer would add this feature.

                  • allow for auto-sync/linking to Folder/file Management to cloud storages. it's for pdf mark-ups

                    i understand the importing step, but it's simply a nuisance that i have to export the pdf and go through the tapping of folders to find back the original file everytime my colleague finishes some docs and pdfs and needs me to vet/markup/edit. it should have some sort of auto-recognition and that after you finish your markups/edits it simply immediately saves back to the original location.

                    OR, maybe during import of the pdf from dropbox, allow for an option to open the file as is, and it creates a temporary copy within the goodnotes app for annotating/editing, and after you're…

                              • Can we please have a SNAPSHOT tool, so that we can take a snapshot of any part of the screen

                                A rectangular (or freehand) selector that will take a snapshot of everything in that part of the screen (electronic ink AND whatever PDF/graphic might be underneath), so that it can be pasted either into a goodnotes doc or an external app...that would be SO SO SO useful...

                                    • give users of Good Notes 4 the option they had in GN v.3 to arrange items in folders as they wish

                                      In Good Notes 3 a user could arrange, e,g,, Notebooks in a Folder any way they wished. In Good Notes 4, items in a Category can only be arranged by date or name. It would be great if this functionality of GN3 could be added to GN 4

                                      • Connection Problems with Adonit jot script

                                        Since iOS 8 my pen isn't working. Sometimes I am able to write for around five minutes, but in the most cases the pen isn't able to establish a connection to the iPad.

                                          When switching to other apps, it takes a while to load the document you're working on again.
