  2. I love the new flash card mode but it would be great if it could be extended

    I have a few ideas


    1. A shuffle mode for going through the cards randomly instead of the order I created them in


    2. A choice of switching between answer and question to study in both directions


    3. an option to write down the answer before checking it


    4. a seperate stack of flash cards with only the ones you got wrong a few times

  3. if you could add a grid on your pdf to help you take notes in a line. For class, we are given pdf's to take notes on but my writing is never straight. A grid i could turn on and off would be very helpful so i could turn it on to take notes and turn it off when reviewing

  7. There are three different sizes of erases to choose. It would be great to change the size, so that I can erase very small written things.

  8. The ability to save custom text box styles and easily access them (using the text style icon) so that they can be re-used rather than changing the default each time.

    It would be great to use when trying to type out different styles of notes such as for headers or key notes. Take for example creating agenda week headers using pretty fonts and fun colours vs text boxes to note key points during a lecture that must be done quickly and can easily be read. In this example, it would be valuable to be able to quickly switch between different…

  9. I would like to have a feature where you can press and hold on any writing in the note and your pen will automatically use that selected formatting, similar to a colour eye dropper tool.

  10. As an upgrade to the one-directional auto-backup feature, I hope there would be an auto-sync function available which allows me to automatically view my numerous uploaded files in gdrive in goodnotes without having to export them one by one.

  11. A lot of the notes I download for school have diagrams with text labels that the search function doesn't find. An OCR program built into the search function would smooth this over and wouldn't be difficult.

  12. I love to have each notebook a different theme and it would be cool if you could assign certain colors, pens, sizes ect... to a note book instead of switching back and forth

  13. Suggestion: in the options menu (per document), there should be an option to see the location and go to original folder.

  14. Should be able to customize way more-
    • unlock aspect ratio on things like rectangles
    • choose if you want border
    • pre-set shapes instead of being required to draw it
    • drag straight, vertical, horizontal line options again, instead of having to draw
    •graphs

  15. Please....
    - add dotted and dashed lines
    - add the function, that the lasso tool recognises lines and objects
    - add gifs and sticky notes
    - add the function that you can record an audio while taking notes, so that you can play it afterwards and it shows what you’ve written in this moment
    - add new sizes to the eraser
    - add that you can change the background colour of geometric forms
    - add that you can select, if the text should be a flowing text or not

  16. Please add mouse scroll wheel support. This makes scrolling through pages using a mouse (aside from Magic Mouse / trackpad) much more convenient than having to hold and drag to scroll.

  17. Would really appreciate if the flashcard feature becomes much more versatile like anki.
    A few suggestions are
    1. Show number of Flashcard left for the day
    2. Integrate several files to form one Flashcard deck without hampering their current progress
    3. SETTING A NEW CARD LIMIT PER DAY
    4. Customising which cards I would like to see first.

    Basically a lot of anki inspired stuff that could help us replace anki cards with handwritten goodnotes cards. Thanks a lot!

  18. The current highlight tool adjusts its position based on how user draws the line. However, lines drawn manually may not perfectly align with text from the PDF file, so the inconsistent gaps between different highlights may look awkward and ugly.

  19. When I use my Mac along with my iPad for Goodnotes, I will use my laptop to copy and paste longer text into my the notebook that I am working on. So if I copy and paste from a website, I always have to change the font and font size to what I want it to be.

    I think there should be a button in the styling area that says "Convert to Default" or maybe even a pop up button after you paste something that says "Convert to Default" or "Convert to Default Font."

    This would be very convenient!
