  1. I don't know if there is an API for that, but this ruler is awesome and far better to draw technical stuff than the simple shape recognition (which is awesome, too).

  5. 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. 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.

  9. Ability to sync using Google Drive rather than iCloud. Right now you can only backup to Google Drive. There should be seamless integration with Google Drive (similar to PDF Expert.)

  10. 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.

  12. Sometimes to sketch things out letter or DIN A4 are to short, so it would nice to have endless paper (like OneNote). Which you can scale if you need to print it out. Or have something like 4 DIN A4 papers which fit together with tesa strip.

  14. I have not yet found any apps that let you annotate a PDF or hand write notes which also allows for a reminder pop up for when a note or notes need to be looked at again. Due dates to finish a. Project.....

  15. When pen or highlighter is selected, the possible colors should appear in the top toolbar for easy switching. In order to keep it uncluttered, only 5 colors are visible in the toolbar. The rest of the colors are available via the current method of long pressing the pen/highlighter.

  16. Can be used to cover portions of images such as screenshots. White would be the most useful.

  17. If I write an important reminder in one of my Goodnotes books I would like funtionality that allows the option of linking this to a calendar reminder date and time. When the reminder goes off it leaves me a message that links to a bookmark where the remix we originated from in Goodnotes.

  19. a bookmark icon on the top menu to bookmark the page you are viewing with just one tap. Just like when using a post-it on a book.
    Current bookmark menu has too many steps including entering the bookmark title.
    Bookmark menu inside the "add" menu can be used to edit the title and so on.
