    The latest update GoodNotes 5.5 is now available on the App Store. While scrolling through your document, you can now see the current page number and the total number of pages in this document. If you don’t like to see the page numbers, you can disable it in Menu > Settings > Document Editing.

  2. Good Notes 4's shape tool was significantly better than Good Notes 5's tool. On Good Notes 5 it is almost always imperfect. Can you please add an option in the shape tool that allows for a subset of perfect shapes, like circles, squares, rectangles, etc... Another suggestion is that you could make it so that when we draw a shape using the pen tool and hold it the shape automatically snaps to a perfect shape.

  5. So it is useful being able to erase with your finger, but it would be great to be able to toggle just using the apple pencil to erase to avoid accidentally erasing notes on review etc. and not noticing!

  9. If one could share a notebook and work on it with somebody else in real time that woukd be huge. Things like online tutoring and group projects would be so much easier.

    We added an OCR document scanner to GoodNotes 5.3 on iPadOS. You can now scan documents and add them to your library in GoodNotes or to existing documents. Tap the + button in the library or in the navigation bar of an open document and select “scan”.

    the document scanner supports OCR to make typed text searchable in GoodNotes for all latin-based languages. You can read more about our latest update on goodnotes.com/ipad-os.

  13. I could not find a way to add page numbers to my notebook. Is this feature already available or can it be added, including automatic page renumbering when pages are moved? Thanks

    GoodNotes 5 introduces the concept of folders to replace categories. You can create unlimited levels of folders and subfolders to organize your notebooks and documents.

  16. Sometimes you want to highlight for a purpose (follow up, to do etc.). Once you are done, you might want to undo the highlight. Would be great if a highlight is a layer that can be removed layer instead of becoming flattened onto the page.

    The eraser in GoodNotes 5 can be set to “erase highlighter only”. Tap and hold on the eraser icon in the toolbar to access these settings. Don’t forget disabling it again afterward.

  17. one type of paper that I like in other apps (and in real life) is dotted grid paper. it's like graph paper but instead of lines, there's just a dot at every intersection. example: http://www.dottedpaper.com/

  18. The ability tu subdivide and organize the documente shouldnt be so limited in an app like these, wich is meant for students and also is paid

    One sub folder is not enough when organizing modules inside courses wich compose a determined MBA or postgrade title etc, this is a must for the student and cant be much hard TO do

  20. Goodnotes is my weapon of choice for teaching, since I'm able to annotate and zoom right on my slides, during the presentation. Nevertheless, having to juggle two pens (laser pointer + stylus) at the same time is cumbersome and often induces me to humorous mishaps during class, which distracts the attention. I really like Apple's Keynote laser pointer. Why not make something like it!?
