            • The iPhone version should introduce a 3D Touch shortcut so that I can have a quick note much more easily!

              Tap the app icon with force to have an option of creating a quick note, or searching for a document so as to make the phone more meaningful and agile.

              • Make Goodnotes 5 distributable via MDM

                Hi,
                we ditribute Goodnotes 4 via our MDM (MobileIron).
                We added Goodnotes 5 to the AppStore of the MDM, but it is not visible in there. Our MDM-Support told us, that they saw this problem on their installation too.
                Please fix.
                Thanks
                Michael

                    • UICollectionView removal

                      UICollectionView with a flow layout is a very cheap way to do the library. I would like to re-order notebooks by drag and drop - and if I put one in the middle of the third shelf, it stay there, and not animates it's way to the end of that section.

                      Great app, by the way!

                        • Create a “favorites” or “recently viewed” list

                          This is part of an overall request for faster and easier navigation between notebooks and categories. Consider recents and favorites as a subset of “easier navigation”.

                          I’m finding that I’d like to have the relevant notebooks for the day or week visible at start-up. I won’t always need the same group of documents, but being able to have a customized list of what I’m using (or will use most) will save me a lot of time. Right now I have to constantly navigate between categories, or keep too many tabs open.

                          Thanks!

                          • I'm a little resistant to purchasing the desktop version.

                            The reviews for this are not good. As a result, I will have to put the iOS version on the back burner. Such a shame as this app. works well on my iPad. Another downer is the price. I really do think anyone who has purchased one version should pay a much reduced price.

                            I will have to return my previous note app. as both iOS and the desktop version work perfectly together.

                              • Simpler, less hierarchical note structure

                                I find browsing categories and subcategories, then note books too time consuming.
                                I'd prefer a faster way of browsing, more like a file browser(finder with splitscreen or explorer)

                                      • Paste extracted pictures to documents

                                        If you add a picture to a document which is extracted from the background it shows nevertheless the frame. Couldn't made background transparent?

                                        • Recycle bin in GN 5

                                          I can’t find a recycle bin in Goodnotes 5 when you delete books. It could become a problem if you accidentally delete one.
