  2. The one that changes when clicking Select, Edit, Text, Pen, Highlight, Eraser...

    I honestly think it doesn't make sense to have that toolbar always active when you are just visualizing a document without editing it. It takes up valuable space for visualization! (specially in Macs with small screens).

    Is there a way to disable that "sub-toolbar"?

  4. When choosing a preset, it would be useful if presets remembered what thickness you liked for that pen and if you had shape recognition enabled.
    Use case: I'm studying on a PDF book; to underline and take notes I'm using:
    - A yellow marker with shape recognition enabled to draw a perfect line on the text
    - A red thick pen with shape recognition enabled to further underline
    - A black thin pen and a red thin pen without shape recognition to write notes.

    With the current implementation, I have to choose the color, then choose the thickness, then enable…

  5. Add more pen options please! I don't like how my handwriting looks in this app but I love everything else this app has to offer. Notes Plus offers pen types that resembles my handwriting but is limited in areas where this app excels. Adding more pen options would eliminate the competition altogether for me.

  6. As far as I can tell, the current version of GoodNotes (4.7) uses the default highlighter color of yellow when highlighting selected text with the "highlight" button. It would be great if GoodNotes could use whatever the currently selected highlighter color is, as I often use multiple colors of highlighters on a single document, and find the highlight button to be a far more accurate method of making crisp, accurate highlights than using my finger or stylus.

  8. Please keep the original full screen reading mode option. Having the menu bar at the top while you are only reading the notes is very distractive and buttons might be pushed unintentionally.

  10. Hi I love your app because it beats so many other apps that I have encountered. The only issue is that I know a few other apps that have various colors abd tones you can pick for the page you're taking notes on. That is what I think would complete your app for me. I use it a lot and have recommended it as well but the page color and tone would make it all complete. Please consider adding this option. Thank you !

  13. fully customisable quick select options on the zoom box to allow us to have heading-width pen size and colours and different highlighter colours all just a single tap away.
    6 quick select boxes as well as the eraser would be great!

  16. Sometimes you highlight or add comments to a PDF using Preview or Adobe Reader on a computer. You then want to use GoodNotes to take additional notes; however, the previous annotations do not appear. This would be extremely helpful when taking notes.

  20. it would be very useful to be able to import short video in a notebook, an alternative would be the PDF import with embedded videos. is a feature planned for the future?
