  1. Dotted line and more line drawing options

    Make it possible to make a straight line between two or more points. Would be great to draw graphs with. Also would be nice to have the ability to make a dotted line, maybe choose space between the dots and so on.

    • Teachers need visible rulers! We ar waiting for you, Good Notes!

      TEACHERS NEED RULERS!
      Many Teachers at my school use Goodnotes as their primary Tool as a Replacement for the old classroom board. What we math teachers miss so much is a possibility to view the ruler on the beamer image like in the Notes App from Apple. The students need to see a ruler or a triangle ruler so that they can follow the teacher properly. There is no other App that does that. SO GO FOR IT! The Teachers around the world are waiting for this! If you are interested in working with a teacher for optimizing your App…

      • Continuous scroll for algebra and or math works

        I wish it could be possible to switch between the classic page turning and a continuous scrolling. When working on math projects, it would be very convenient to have a continuous scroll so that I can always see my last result or steps without having to continuously switch pages. Ideally I'd love to be able to mix continuous rolls with classic page by page notebook.

        • Hyperlink (paste URL)

          It would be great if you could paste a URL and it be clickable from within a page!

          • Writing tools shortcuts

            If there could be a tray where I can add 4-5 various colors of pens and highlighter mimicking a real physical object that I can just pickup and write. For example, I could add a red colored pen with fine thickness, a black colored pen with bold thickness, yellow highlighter pen with certain thickness and automatic straight line.

            In that way I can jump between each tools and options without having to turn on/off auto-straight-line function or adjust the thickness every time I change a writing tool.

            You can let this function to be optional that users can toggle on/off…

                    • Full Drag and Drop Support in iOS 11

                      For iOS 11, it would be great if photos, text and pdfs could be dropped into a workbook. You could also add drag and drop support for moving individual pages between different notebooks and moving notebooks to different folders.

                        • Ability to use additional fonts

                          Hello,

                          I purchased the full version of this great application and have been using it for some time. The one thing that I would absolutely love to see changed... I mean I feel if the functionality allowed this it would turn this from being a great application to an amazing must have application is the ability to use additional fonts. Why do you restrict the font selection to just a few??? Why not allow us to use any font that we have installed (.ttf) File) in our iPhone or iPad??? I would be elated if you would consider adding this…

                          • Convert handwriting to text

                            Convert handwriting to text as an option only when using the zoom window to write. Font and paragraph attributes could be adjusted and saved as default for handwriting to text conversion. I write because it's faster but for some custom backgrounds (log forms), having text would be ideal. I can't sacrifice the time to use text boxes when working with clients and patients.

                                    • Layer

                                      Allow users to put comments on different layers. It would be helpful if these could be turned on/ off, or have their transparency % adjusted like in the Photoshop Touch application. Selecting annotations on one layer only or locking others would be useful as well.

                                      • I need lock some notebooks and folders.

                                        I often use goodnotes for work, and some files are confidential. So I really need a option to lock some files and folders with a password.

                                        I hope you can update update goodnotes with this function, just like what notability and UPAD had.

                                        • Create GoodNotes for Windows 8 devices, please!

                                          GoodNotes is the only reason I have an iPad. It would be wonderful to see Goodnotes available on Windows 8 so I wouldn't have to carry a laptop and a tablet. Goodnotes is exactly what Window 8 is missing.
