  2. I'd like to be able to position the task bar on the side or bottom. I'm a lefty and hook my hand around a lot. The hand position setting works okay with palm recognition on the page itself, but because my hand comes around from the top, I still bump into the controls on the toolbar.

  3. I would like to choose which notebooks / documents get synced through iCloud. I have plenty of documents on my iPad that I don't want to have on my iPhone. Things like PDF manuals or PDF presentations that I just can't use on the smaller iPhone screen.

  4. I use zoom window for all my writing. It allows me to keep my hand in one place and see most of the screen while writing. Currently zoom window is very rigid: it has a fixed aspect ration, limited zoom factor, fixed position and size at bottom of screen. Adding some features would make it a much better tool.

    • Allow to choose both length and width of zoom window (flexible aspect ration) upto half half screen;
    • Allow to zoom starting from 1x magnification;
    • Make the border of zoom window 1 pixel wide to distract less from what is actually on…

  6. I like that there are a fair amount of colors to choose from, but it would be nice to have some way to make and save custom colors. Perhaps some sort of a color wheel.

  7. Currently, there is no way to add new entries to the "PDF Outlines". In principle, I would want to avoid using bookmarks to add "structure" to my documents: IMO, bookmarks should be temporary placeholders, whereas the outline is a more permanent structure of headings and subheadings.

  9. Add the option to hyperlink from the cut tool options. Basically anything I circle I can assign a link to take me to the associated content.

  12. 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…

  15. GoodNotes provides the best handwriting experience, but the lack of rich text formatting (bold/italics, font sizes, font colors, bullets, numbered lists - you can only do one option per entire text box) makes apps like Notability a better option at the moment (despite the fact that the handwriting really sucks). There's no app that has handwriting at the level that GoodNotes has and also had proper text capabilities

  16. Add a paper page as new paper type with the date of today into the default paper type. So you are able to create a new note book with empty pages withe the date of today like a dairy book.

  17. As part of my workflow, I am quite regularly wanting to insert a new page with just parts of what is on on my current page.

    There are two ways I can accomplish this at the moment:

    1. Open the multi-page view, tap edit, select the current page, tap copy, tap done, tap +, tap the + in a circle where I want to insert the page, tap "Paste Copied Pages", tap done, select my newly inserted page, use the lasso tool to select the parts of the pages I do not want to keep, and delete them.

    2. Use the lasso…

  19. 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.
