    The only feature I can suggest as an improvement is the one thing OneNote kind of does right, which is the ability to annotate beyond the margins of imported PDF documents. It is great to be able to annotate over a document, but it is better to be able to take copious notes beyond the margins. Example: Most professors provide PDF or PowerPoint lecture notes, but they are typically loaded with information. How angering to hear important commentary in class only to look down and realize that you need to write smaller than the human eye can see to fit information between lines of text, in the narrowest of margins, or between illustrations. The only mechanism I have deduced to combat this is to open a PDF version in Preview, drag one slide at a time into a folder, and import those images on at a time onto a slide larger PowerPoint slide to create blank space, and export the document again as a combined PDF. Talk about a waste of time! If only there was a way to import PDFs onto a larger canvas. Not a ridiculously infinite space like OneNote, but templates of reasonable dimensions. With that, I would be thoroughly satisfied.

    I consider this resolved in Good Notes 5. Just click on the "Search" button, currently between the "Documents" and "Favorites" buttons outside of document viewing mode. Under "Recently Opened Documents" I click on the most recent document to the far left of the category.

    I think this is a much better workflow than creating a navigation path to just go back-and-forth from document viewing to folder structure, as the most recent document I am often trying to get back to without needing to navigate to it in the folder structure, or open a random document just to regain access to the document viewing mode. Two problems solved at one time. Awesome job!
