  1. Every time I color cause I make a lot of my diagrams on this app it takes so so much time to fill it in. Please add a fill function but not like the existing one where it highlights the area, one where it is the same color as the border around it. PLEASE and ty!

  2. The shape tool is amazing no doubt but it still lacks some major shapes. If you try to draw a semi circle by a quick stroke it converts it to a straight line, same goes for an arc. This is difficult while taking maths lectures as it requires a lot of shapes. Some shapes that don't work are: semi circle, arc, sector, parabola.

  3. I usually keep two notebooks open on my iPad in tabs. I write in thin black on one notebook, and the other notebook I write on an index card template in a thick marker like pen setting. Moving between tabs, it would be nice if a notebook would remember the last pen setting used inside it. I need to switch back and forth quickly, and having to change pen type, color and thickness every single time gets old fast. Thanks for your great product!

  5. I wish there was an option for disabling the layering of the highlighter tool, since sometimes we need to colour diagrams or doodles and it gets impossible to do so with the highlighter because you have to do it correctly in only one stroke. If layering could be disabled, the highlighting would all be in one layer, and colouring in multiple strokes would be uniform and not look overlapped and irregular.

  6. GoodNotes needs a triangle ruler for the home schooling! An example for this function you can find in the APP "Digitales Schulbuch" (GooglePlay)

  7. If I want to search for a sequence of words, for example "plant protein", GoodNotes currently shows me all instances of "plant" and all instances of "protein". These search results are often not useful.

    It would be awesome if I could add quotes to my search " 'plant protein' " to make GoodNotes return the exact sequence of words I searched for.

    This is pretty similar behavior to most search engines so it should be pretty intuitive to most users and it probably would be pretty easy to change

  8. I would like to thank you for adding the sticky note feature, but I also have one suggestion about it. When I write on the sticky note, I'd like for the notes to be automatically grouped with the sticky note in order to be moved together whenever I decide to move the sticky note. We should also have the option to ungroup them when desired.
    This would be a lot more convenient than having to use the selection tool in order to select both the sticky note and the notes I wrote on it in order to be able to…

  10. I'd love to be able to make the background of diagram images transparent within GoodNotes. I like how this is action performed using an app called MagicEraser, as demonstrated in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pyty9XGv494&feature=youtu.be&t=262

    This feature would be very useful, especially when using dark paper.

    I wish to skip the step of using a different app just to make the background transparent. I constantly need to give my images a transparent background and I really want a faster way to do it. That's why I would love for GoodNotes to have features like those in the MagicEraser app.

    Thank you!

  11. The ability to study our flashcards by shuffling randomly through the whole deck, instead of using the algorithm spacing and sorting!

  12. I love using the lasso tool to move my handwriting around on the page. I also use the vertical scrolling feature to write my notes, but when I want to move text from one page to the next within the lasso tool, I can’t just drag it on. I have to copy/paste to the next page then cut or erase the text from the previous page. It’s a small thing, but a change that would improve work flow.

  13. Having a color eye dropper would be super helpful for color-coding info when highlighting or simply writing with a pen!
    I also would like to have my custom colors saved such that any color I save on the app on my phone is saved so I can refer to it and use the same color when I use GoodNotes on my computer. Thanks!!

  15. Instead of the one option of a blue folder we should have the option to change the color of the folder to help distinguish subjects better.

  16. It would be very helpful if we are given the ability to select several images and import them all at once. This will save time and it will make it easier to work with projects that require a collection of photos. One way I would use this is to upload multiple pictures into flashcards. I think it would also be great for journaling. A feature like this will help speed up my workflow. It is a nice productivity feature.

    My workflow would be much more efficient if I could multiple images simultaneously instead of individually, since I work with images…

  17. When copying and pasting with the Lasso tool, we are given the option to resize and rotate, but we are NOT given the option to mirror the image, that is, reflecting it with respect to the vertical axis. That would be a useful improvement, in my opinion.

    For example, to draw a face it would be enough to draw the right eye, half a nose and half a mouth, then mirror it.

  18. Hello,
    I am using Notability as well as Goodnotes 5..
    I want to emphasize on the point that you should make it possible to insert videos in the notes itself or at least give an option of inserting hyperlinks to youtube or websites.
    It becomes so much easy for us to click the link and open it there itself..
    U need to seriously think on this..

  19. I would love to see more math tools in general, since I know many people who use GoodNotes for Maths and Pyhsics. It would be nice if this would made the app more accessible for those students, not only for the „typical Medicine student GoodNotes user“.
    Besides all the math tools, a feature of an inbuilt calculator, which can calculate your hand written calculations would be fantastic!
    The App „MyScript Calculator“ is a great example for this feature.
    Thanks for considering my feature request.

  20. A paint bucket would save me time and energy, particularly when I'm creating diagrams and illustrations. I don't have the time or patience to color everything by hand, especially when I'm taking notes for school.
