        • Make amends for the Scrooge move

          This is a bogus move by what I considered a great company until seeing this Scrooge move of on update. I have been using Goodnotes for almost a month now. I've encouraged others to buy (at least 2 already have). Now, you discontinue the "old" version and charge us anew for the upgrade! Poor form.
          I will certainly continue (at least until Penultimate pushes an update) to use my current version of the app. However, I'll give a stern warning to others to consider giving their money to a more trustworthy company.

          • Better support for the Pinpoint Stylus

            The Good Notes app doesn't seem to work well with the Joy Pinpoint Precision Stylus. Letters often get deleted or are misshapen. It would be really good if this could be fixed.

              • Inclined lines with shape recognition

                Drawing inclined lines with the shape recognition tool is almost imossible when the line is drawn close to the vertical or the horizontal plane (say 89° or 1°). Goodnotes always changes the line to a vertical or a horizontal line. You could add a line tool that draws the line between two points.

                    • Optionen für Füller

                      Hallo,
                      es wäre hilfreich, wenn die Shortcuts für die Füllerfarbe nicht nur in der Lupe, sondern immer angezeigt werden.

                      • Improve the automatic palm rejection functionality

                        Also for simple styluses. The application is perfect and I use it every day but last few updates is making me disappointed. Current version is too sensitive for palm touches which causes too much unwanted marks. Due to this I spent twice as more time by cleaning these marks than writing my notes.

                        • List date/time under each thumbnail image

                          When I look at thumbnails for a notebook, it would be GREAT to be able to see the data/time the page was created under the thumbnail. I use a notebook for journaling meetings for an entire month. That would make it so much easier to find a page for a specific date. Even searching for a specific create data range of pages would be AMAZING. Thanks.

                                  • Sync from Itunes directly to the app

                                    When I drag a pdf to the app using iTunes, I can´t find the file in the bookshelf. So I have to drag it to another one and 'open in' in good notes.

                                    • Enable a switch from categoy to notebook view without selecting a notebook

                                      Sometimes I import an external document - g.E.: my newspaper epaper from Safari. This will open the category view, which I‘ve got chosen by import. But in the next step I don‘t want to open this new Document instead I want to work with actually opened Documents. My (very hateful) workaround is:
                                      - open a dummy document to come to the documentview
                                      - close this dummy document to work with my opened Documents

                                      I am a student and love to use GoodNotes for the work therefore.
