  2. Hi, for pdf readers like Xodo, a feature that allows us to automatically trim off the white edge of certain documents is great for zooming in and focusing on the content.

    Could you please add such a feature that turns any documents/textbooks into a tablet friendly version?

    Cheers

  3. How come you decided to go for double-tap /only/ instead of giving us the option to choose between single or double-tap?

    Please add this, and maybe an option to turn the gestures off for those who prefer the buttons on the screen (see the comments on your own post about the update, for example). It would be deeply appreciated.

    And also, the redo gesture does not work very well for many, if at all (not working at all in my case).

  4. I use GoodNotes screenshot-feature on a daily basis to create drawings for my exercises & summaries for uni and it would be very useful if I could export into SVG -> better quality while maintaining a small footprint.

    This should illustrate my idea:

  6. I am a student who uses GoodNotes to study.
    I'm mailing to suggest features that would be great when I study in GoodNotes.
    It's moving to a page you've seen before, which is similar to the previous channel feature of the tv remote.

    While studying, there are many cases of moving and looking to refer to pages that are far away, and then returning from the previous ones.
    If this function is added, it seems that the efficiency of study can be improved.
    Thanks for reading :)

  7. When you choose a new ink, it necessary to select it before use. It will be a very easy use to have an automatic select after click

  8. Make an icon next to the existing zoom indentations that allows the indentation line to move

    I always have to click left indent too many times to get to where I want to write

  9. Allow saving my own favorites text box styles. Allow choosing a saved style from a list when creating a text box. Allow changing the style of an existing box to one of my favorites.

  11. As a student who uses Goodnotes for everything, often it is hard to find notes because the global search includes everything and shows too many results from unrelated notes. The ability to search within select folders would greatly improve the ability to find the notes we need.

  12. When you are creating a new document in goodnotes 5, all pages have the same size /relation, but if you import a new page there´s no option to adapting its size or relation to the other pages of the document and seems out of place. It would be ideal to be able to just have some options of this type.

  13. It would be great if goodnotes adds a pencil tool just like in apple's notes app. I find apple's pencil tool is feels and looks like you're actually writing using a pencil.
    it would be excellent too if you would add a ruler tool or a protractor tool so that users could draw engineering diagrams accurately. I find it annoying that when you want to rotate a selected object, its difficult to rotate the object to our liking without changing the size. And i suggest when you rotate an object it would show the angle of the rotation.

  14. I want to be able to erase using the Apple Pencil (Gen 2) like in the default notes app, where after the eraser is selected the size of the eraser can be varied by tilting the pencil: 90° for pixel-by-pixel, more acute for larger eraser.

  15. When reading a pdf, there are little points that you have to mention in addition. An ability to have a small window/ note beside the main pdf to mention them would be amazing. every time you go over that page, it would tell you that there you have x number of notes on this, or better, it would highlight those lines so you know that there is additional info with those

    The other thing that could be added is the ability to connect boxes to each other like in liquid text

  17. GoodNotes is the excellent app for note taking.Its just above all as compared to all other note taking apps out there in app store.
    Just want to convey a single message to GoodNotes team.
    Please please add scrolling bar function in pages.The slider bar of pages don't work properly.We have to manually turn each pages and that is a too tedious process.Kindly give the option of scrolling of pages using finger or apple pencil.

    Also kindly add search through function in images and pictures which are attached in notes.
    Thank you

  18. I have dyslexia and it would be wonderful if I could listen to the notes I take. Right now I have to copy it and paste is a page that could read it for me. So it would help me a lot if an option for reading out loud is added

  19. Like in the apple PDF modificator, it may be interesting to add a ruler to make easier to underline some text or doing geométric shapes. Currently in Good Note the tool which allow us to do shape or straight line is a bit hard to use.
    Sometimes, we can’t do what we want. It’s a waste of time.

  20. As a planner and student, it would be so helpful to have an adjustable opacity for pictures that we insert. This would allow text underneath to show or for layering stickers or for block scheduling. It would really improve planning on the iPad. Thank you!
