  2. If you take notes for multiple subjects/classes but use different color systems for each, it may be a good idea to make custom groups for specific colors so that they don’t get lost in a mix of all the custom colors you’ve added to the color set

  4. It would be great to have two page view as mentioned before, but to build on that, being able to link text to other pages and better to see them at the same time. I included a video of an example/inspiration (shoutout Baldurs Gate 3).

    This would be great for compiling tasks, and with linking, you could add more in depth notes that would be easily accessible when you want. I know it would make organizing my work and notes so much easier.

  5. Need to be more intuitive & simulative when using the App, so we don't need to always try to find the right function & apply it to the document.
    Thanks a lot !

  7. Not sure if this is possible, but it would be nice to import a pdf document into an existing note and not have it much larger than the existing pages in the note.

  8. Every time I open GN in my MacBook, the app window is small. We should be able to open it in full size each time without having to adjust the size after each opening.

  9. It would be nice to be able to realign the button options on the bottom of the page. For example, “favorites” is currently to the far right which I use often, and “share” is closer to the middle which I never use.

  10. If we are in a document, that’s not yet marked as a favorite, it would be great to be able to “favorite” the ENTIRE document from there, not just the page were are in.

  13. Good Notes 5 doesn’t allow you to select all bookmarked pages in Favorites and trash them. See attached video. You can trash all but one page. Otherwise you get a pop-up warning message.

    Please provide a Select All button and allow a quick way to Trash all
    bookmarked pages.

  15. Goodnotes for linux :
    why this is a good idea and takes less time to implement compared to windows: since mac os is unix based it should be easy enough to release a linux version. it will benefit computer science, electrical and others( who need linux) students and professionals who need to run linux (start with an ubuntu version) on their computers.

    It will especially help programmers to trouble-shoot code as thought its done on paper-using an ipad using icloud or google drive

  16. A keyboard shortcut to toggle between read-only and edit modes. (⌘R perhaps?)

    For both the Mac and iPad versions

    I use a planner with hyperlinks and frequently have to toggle between the two modes, as the hyperlinks are easier to use in Read-only mode

  17. Any template, for any screen size, should be resizable. I.e. instead of "Ruled Narrow" or "Ruled Wide" There should be one "Ruled" with the option to change to whatever size / scale I wish.

    This is especially important for the sheet music template which are too small for writing. (At least on my ipad)

  18. When zoomed out, the cursor for the pen becomes a plus sign, which is not very easy to write with... It would be easier if the cursor were just a dot when zoomed in or when zoomed out.

  19. Please add the auto-advance feature on the Mac app too, because it is quite useful but available only on GoodNotes 5 for iOS.

  20. Would be great, if you can create a bookmark, which you can write on and slide in like a real book mark in a journal.

    Check Video 12 on the following page.
