  1. Similar to MS paint it would be useful to have a paint bucket tool that would fill a color inside the lines of a shape. Most of the functionality is already added with the shape fill color option, but for drawings that dont use it there is no efficient way to fill the space.

  2. Pls return the bookmark icon in the toolbar where it was previously with the red mark indicator if selected. Because of the new update i can‘t directly see which notes are more important while learning my courses. Without having to use other complicated features.

  3. It would be nice to set different presets for different documents. For example, in document A, selected preset pen colors are different shades of green, whereas in document B selected presets are different shades of blue. This would be nice when you're trying to make different documents each have their own themes. An extension of this could be preset pen thicknesses. For example, when you enter document A, your pen is automatically at 0.2 whereas when you document B your pen is 0.4.

  4. Hi, I‘m a student and have two ideas:
    The first one is to create automatic tables like those in notes on apple products, because I personally think it‘s a litte bit exhausting to draw them by hand in goodnotes.
    The second one is to add rules, especially triangle ones, and and then you can draw straight lines and/ or look what the angles are. A similar thing existed in word for iPad and I think it‘s really effective. Because, every time I have have to look what angles there are, I use my real triangle ruler while it‘s leaving scratches…

  5. To make space for the microphone/recording icon (perhaps for the sake of symmetry) the bookmark icon was removed. There is now no visual feedback of for a page being bookmarked.

    One on hand, I use this feature with my planner to add the current week to favorites for a quick retrieval. On the other hand I will never use the recording feature.
    My dismay at this new development is self evident and so is my wish for a future positive resolution for my quandry.

  7. An Eyedropper tool so that you can copy the colour of your handwriting when you reinstall the app and import your backup

  8. I know there are a lot of suggestions for a fill tool, but my idea would be to implement this feature without a tool.

    After drawing a Diagram/Shape/Whatever that you want colored in (completely, not shaded), it's always a real hassle to fill it in manually using the pencil. Adding another tool like a Paint bucket would make it easier, but still a bit tedious. In my opinion, the best way to approach this, especially for the Apple Pencil, is the Way Procreate did it. you can just drag a color from the Menu par, and drop it on a…

  9. Similar to Notability have a feature that would recognize hand drawn arrows, and convert them into arrow shapes.

  10. Bring back the bookmark button please. Or make it so we can edit the toolbar to add it back. The record feature is useless to me so I want the bookmark button back where it was.

  11. Non overlapping highlighter! Or the ability to change the opacity on the highlighter! I use goodnotes for drawing and coloring is soooo difficult right now because you can’t lift your pen up or it will overlap the color :(

  13. These languages are available as MyScript ´supported recognition languages´.
    The handwriting recognition in these languages are possible in the Notability and Nebo apps.
    And should be available for GoodNotes. Just press the buttons, please!

  15. We can add images into our notes but there is currently no option to insert video files & audio files. Please consider adding this feature. Allow us to upload audio & video files to our notes, just as we are able to upload pictures.

  17. With the most recent update, microphone access knocked the "Add to Favorites" button out of the main toolbar. I'm regularly adding pages to favorites as part of long documents that I mark up by hand, which I then use to pull only the favorite pages out of the document and send to a colleague quickly; now the button requires 3+ clicks to get to. I'm not going to use the microphone. At least make it the user's option to move around the icons that are featured in the main toolbar.

  18. I would love to be able to change the colors of the folders! Instead of just using the default blue color. It would definitely add to the organization !

  19. Currently I can only save one default setting for a text field. This is very inconvenient when using multiple fonts and font sizes in the notes. It would be nice to be able to save between 10-15 different text field variations.

  20. I suggest adding a layer function to GoodsNotes, which is more convenient for users to perform multiple painting operations on the same picture
