  1. Since GoodNotes 6, family sharing via the Apple iOS app store is unfortunately no longer supported by GoodNotes.

    This is really frustrating because it means that we can no longer use the app as a family. That's why I would like to suggest that the developers reconsider supporting family sharing in GoodNotes 6 as well.

  2. The "UNDO" and "REDO" buttons in Goodnotes 6 have moved from the top right corner in Goodnotes 5 to the top left corner. When using UNDO, it's often necessary to see up to which step I've undone. But after moving to the top left, not only does my right hand have to move a considerable distance, but my entire hand covers the screen, making it hard to see where I've undone to. I hope the UI design can be changed back to the top right corner.

  3. I am incredibly happy that you have added the voice recording feature. I would be very pleased If you add another feature where we can adjust the speed of the audio recording. (such as 1.25x, 1.5x, 2x or 0.5x)

  9. 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.

  10. On OneNote I have 14 different colored pens and highlighters up top. GoodNotes is superior to one note in almost every way except this one. I color code my notes, so I am forced to used one note. If I were to try and color code using goodnotes, it would take me hours longer because there are so many extra clicks to get to the correct color of pen or highlighter. Having more color options up top and allowing both pens and highlighters in the menu bar like one note would be amazing.

    There is plenty of room up there,…

  11. Currently all folders appear as blue. It would be great to organise folders with different colours (e.g biology- green and maths - red)

  12. It would be good to be able to customise the toolbar since I’m sure there are features that some of us don’t use and could use the space for something else.

    • Toggle which icons appear in the toolbar. Personally I never use and will probably never use the in-app camera and presentation mode. It would be great if there was an option to just turn those off.
    • Allow the option to have more colour and pen size presets. 3 isn’t enough!
    • When the zoom window toolbar finally returns, it would be great to have the same level of customisation.

  13. Good Notes 4's shape tool was significantly better than Good Notes 5's tool. On Good Notes 5 it is almost always imperfect. Can you please add an option in the shape tool that allows for a subset of perfect shapes, like circles, squares, rectangles, etc... Another suggestion is that you could make it so that when we draw a shape using the pen tool and hold it the shape automatically snaps to a perfect shape. This would be incredibly useful for making graphs and charts that need precise lines. Not everyones hand is as steady as an artists and for…

    We’re happy to announce that the update 5.6.0 that we released today adds an improved shape recognition including the option to hold at the end of a line to make a perfect shape, shape selection, and curve drawing.

  14. I could not find a way to add page numbers to my notebook. Is this feature already available or can it be added, including automatic page renumbering when pages are moved? Thanks

    The latest update GoodNotes 5.5 is now available on the App Store. While scrolling through your document, you can now see the current page number and the total number of pages in this document. If you don’t like to see the page numbers, you can disable it in Menu > Settings > Document Editing.

  15. When I connect the presentation of reflection through AirPlay, found that in the Good Note application, can be extended or zoom the screen at the iPad normally. But the image that is reflected through AirPlay, found that the image drawing board of Good Note also shows only the full screen. And display the expansion or zoom screen, not same the screen of the IPad So Making it difficult for presentation. Please update as well.

  16. It would be efficient and productive to be able to set a default font. Perhaps there is a way and I don’t know how to navigate it yet. But right now, every time I use the text box, and while I’ve already changed the font, it will default back to Helvetica Neue. Not a bad font, I just have work & schoolwork that requires a different font. It would be nice to just pick that font and stay until I decide otherwise.

  17. I'd love to have the possibility of having larger than A4 paper templates.
    A2, A1 and even A0 templates would be awesome when you have to create flow charts.

    Hi there 👋 Thanks for the suggestion. GoodNotes allows you to add any PDF or image as a custom paper template to your template library and you can easily create your desired paper template size using a text editor like Word or Pages. Alternatively, you can find many additional paper templates for free (or a low price) online.

  18. I'm starting to doubt that GoodNotes 5 team even visits this Feature Request page; there are MANY great, INTUITIVE features that have been suggested here YEARS ago and didn't come to life. Like, come on!

    This is a paid app; it should get more attention than free ones. Before I purchased the app, I was really confused between which app to get, GoodNotes 5 or Notability? I chose GoodNotes 5 because I saw the potential this app could become. I read the requested features here and I believed it's a good investment if these requests later came to life. I…

  20. We need to be able to select certain pages when exporting. Selecting only one page or all pages is annoying and if we have to submit homework or notes, some pages we don't need to submit. It would be helpful and practical.

    To export selected pages, open the thumbnail view with the overview of all pages in your document. Tap on the select button, then tap on the pages you want to export. You can now tap the “export” button at the top.
