  2. I just bought this pen, and it's by far the best bluetooth tablet pen I've ever used. Just the right weight, comfortable, the pressure sensitivity is perfect, and you can even use it as a regular stylus in any app.

    But the only supported app, Bamboo paper, is not very good for note taking.

    Please consider adding support for this superb pen.

  3. I have a lot of Folders in my GoodNotes Library and every Folder is just blue. On my Mac I've changed every Folder Icon in my music library with the album cover.

    Should be great to have that option in GoodNotes

  4. Currently I can only rearrange one page at a time.
    If I want 5 pages to be moved up or down in page order, I have to rearrange one by one.

  5. The old version used to allow the iOS clock to be visible at the top of the screen. In the new version, the clock is no longer visible. This is much cleaner, however, if there are other users like me who teach a class using GoodNotes with my lecture notes, having that clock visible is pretty important for keeping the class schedule. Would it be possible to add an option for a clock to display on the GoodNotes menu bar?

  6. I just purchased the app today and all I can say is that it's amazing! I can now stop carrying my notebooks with me, which makes life a lot easier. I think fluidity is important when it comes to note taking, and not having a eraser on the Zoom Window gets in the way and is a distraction. If you guys can add this feature aim sure many users would appreciate it!

    Keep up the good work! I'll definitely recommend this app to all my colleagues who are trying to go paperless.

  7. Having highlighted some hand-written notes, the eraser will delete both the highlight and the text. Please give an option for the eraser to delete only the highlight, leaving the notes "underneath" intact.

    In GoodNotes 5, the eraser can be set to “erase highlighter only”. Tap and hold on the eraser icon to access the settings.

    Don’t forget to deactivate it afterward to also erase regular ink strokes again.

  8. Other pdf apps should be able to detect the bookmarks and outlines.

  11. Either a feature or separate app that uses your software to make flash cards at someone could draw on and then be able to flip them on the iPad

  12. One of the best features for me were searchable PDFs in GoodNotes with the last update.
    You could further enhance this experience, if you would add the ability to search your handwritten notes, too. I know this feature would be a lot of work, but you would get really close to Pro Note Tools like OneNote from Microsoft.

  14. While its only a minor inconvenience, when I'm taking notes in a class where the professor really likes to speed along, having to go to the top of the screen to select the eraser, then back to select the pen, I can quickly fall behind what the prof is saying.

  15. I often need to go back and forth between multiple documents. Can we have three or four such open documents at once, possibly selecting them from icons on a toolbar, etc?

  16. It’s a bit tedious to switch to the shape tool every time you want to draw e.g. a perfect line. What about having GoodNotes draw a perfect shape when you hold your stroke like in Procreate or Notability? Bonus points when it’s possible to edit the shape size and anchor points.

    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 & editing, and curve drawing. It further improves the recognition of circles and squares and adds back the ability to draw shapes with the highlighter.

  17. There is a categories option but visual folders would be more nicer to see and far more usable
    Obviously with subfolder support

  19. I would love an added dark mode option. Having darker greys and blacks could make the app look so much cleaner.

    Dark Mode is now supported in GoodNotes 5.3 for iPadOS and iOS 13. You can enable system-wide Dark Mode in the control center and GoodNotes’ design will switch to Dark Mode. We also added a set of dark paper templates that you can use when creating new documents, adding new pages, or changing existing templates. Please note that paper colors won’t be automatically changed when activating Dark Mode because backgrounds are static.
