  1. We need linked audio recording so that we won't miss anything in the class or in meetings!

    The reason behind the success of NOTABILITY is the audio recording functionality, I use notability just for that!

    Please add it.

  3. It would be great if you had an option to password protect a selected notebook in case you have to create one that would contain sensitive information.

  4. As the contents in the notebook keeps increasing over a period of time, I would like to have a link or connector to a previous page or a different book within the app to quickly navigate to the desired content instead if flipping through the pages.

  5. Please please add a feature to convert hand written notes to the same page. You offer to export the converted hand written notes to text, but you should allow to change the notes in the fly to the same page you converted. Please! Your note application will supersede all others with this feature!

  6. I don't know if there is an API for that, but this ruler is awesome and far better to draw technical stuff than the simple shape recognition (which is awesome, too).

  9. Allow users to insert new brushes similar to the procreate app. That way we can completely customize our notebooks with calligraphy and other word art.

  11. Having stickies that can be pasted on pages - particularly PDFs - would be fantastic. Notes could be made then moved around the page. The more these echo real-life stickies, the better.

    (The ability to export notes made on stickies would also be most welcome.)

  13. It would be a great deal, if it would be possible to tag all documents and (possibly) each position within each note with one or more tags. There should be a tag list for each shelf of notes, such that I can have different sets of tags for each shelf. It should then be possible to open the tag list for a shelf, click on a tag, and get a list of all usages of this tag with all documents and all locations within documents. Clicking on a usage should open the document (in case it is the tag of…

  14. I am a neurophysiologist and am constantly designing experiments. There are many moving parts and it helps to be able to draw flow charts and mind maps for each experimental design. I know many people have requested arrows, and I just want to ask that in addition to arrows we get dynamic colored text boxes (squares would be fine if they could remain editable in brain-map mode) so that I don't have to lasso things to move them and change how they connect. And PLEASE LOTS of color options and thicknesses with these!!

  16. I take a ton of notes and produce a lot of todos from meetings, etc.

    OneNote had this feature 15 years ago whereby you would add a todo box next to the line of a handwritten note. It then had a todo notebook that would pull all of the todo boxes from all notebooks. I'm dying to have this feature. I've searched and searched and can't find the feature anywhere! Please please add this!!

  17. It would be nice if we could have infinitely long sheets like in Onenote. There really isn't a need to be restricted to physical dimensions of paper anymore.

    Hey everyone, in GoodNotes 5, we added the ability to set the scrolling direction to “vertical”: https://support.goodnotes.com/hc/en-us/articles/360000118135-How-to-set-the-scrolling-direction-to-horizontal-or-vertical

    We’re using a framework for page handling that treats every page as a separate file. This allows things like:
    - export of a selection of pages
    - easy reordering of pages within a document
    - rotation of pages
    - adding images/photos as standalone pages
    - mixing multiple file types (PDF, Word, PowerPoint, GoodNotes) in a single document
    - etc.

    Since each page is an individual file, a truly infinite sheet is not feasible with the current framework.

  18. Goodnotes 3 one could manually sort the notes, please add the function again as name and date is not enough, at university I sometimes upload allot of docs at a time and need to re order them!!

  19. To move pages between Notebooks, you have to copy and paste the respective page. After that you have to go back and delete the page from the original place in order to avoid double pages. Please ad a function to just move pages from one Notebook to another.
