  1. Goodnotes is a huge battery drainer, so I hope the next up date will optimize the app resources so it uses less power

  2. Much like the writing magnifier, except it will convert your written words in that window in real time onto the page as typeface text.

  4. I use GoodNotes to take notes during lectures but I also do a lot of my homework in this app. I wish I could at least perform some basic math calculations without leaving the app. Right now, if I want to do any calculations for math class or some other class, I need to leave the app in order to do a Google search or I have to use my phone to do it.

    It would be helpful if I could write out the problems with the Apple Pencil and GoodNotes would be able to help me perform some basic…

    Thanks for sharing your feedback. Would it work for you to open a calculator app as a slide over app and then just swipe it in from the side when it is needed? You won’t have to leave GoodNotes for it and you can easily make some quick calculations.

  5. The ability to convert your handwritten notes to the typed version without having to copy and paste every time.

  6. I would like to be able to zoom out of a page without the page automatically zooming back to 100%. I like to zoom out and have a full view of my page since I’m using an 11” IPad often in portrait mode, notability and OneNote both allow me to zoom the document as I please, would love the feature in goodnotes

  7. It would be helpful, if there would be a checkbox to switch the export of the handwriting notes on or off.
    I often create a presentation in GN. To publish only the slides with the pictures, text boxes etc. but without my handwriting speaknotes, this option would be very nice. Until now, I have to create two documents. One with the handwriting notes and one without my marks.

    Did we understand it correctly, that the option to “exclude” annotation in the export option won’t be suitable for you because you want the exported document to include text boxes and/or images but no handwriting?

  8. Goodnotes uses two rows of tools, which is takes up too much screen real estate, especially in landscape mode. This means I cannot use Goodnotes for teaching, which is what I got it for. (It's a shame, because Goodnotes is otherwise well suited for teaching.) It would be great if you could compact to a single row of tools (or even zero), to get more writing area.

  9. Since ios 13 the notes app with apple pencil has less latency, going to goodnotes again seems so slow in comparison

    The Apple Pencil latency is also down to 9ms in GoodNotes. However, GoodNotes doesn’t use “stroke prediction” which will make the line look “slower” than in Apple Notes when drawing longer lines quickly. It won’t affect the usual writing experience. Do you notice a higher latency when you’re writing as well?

  10. It could be very useful to have the possibility to forward or send a document via mail directly to a personal Goodnotes mail account without saving it in PDF and importing to the app.
    Thank you

  11. 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 !

  13. I am sure I'm not the only one who have asked for this in the past, but I will ask for it once again (not hoping for much though, since 2 years passed since I first asked for it -others too as I said- and nothing has been done).

    ADD NEW PENS! This is handwriting note taking app! Pens have been the same since GN4! Oh, don't tell me that the "brush pen" you added in the horrible GN5 is an addition! It does nothing! How about looking at other note taking apps to see the variety of pens they…

    We’re sorry to hear about the negative experiences you have with GoodNotes 5 and are thankful that you took the time to write such lengthy and detailed feedback.
    We’re optimizing the ink algorithm continuously and haven’t heard many complaints about the smoothness in recent times so we’d like to take a closer look at your case. Would you be able to share a comparison video of how it looks like when you write in GoodNotes 4 vs GoodNotes 5 to support@goodnotes.com? That will be very helpful for us. Please refer to this review, so that we know it is you.

  14. Make new pens

  15. Hello, it would be interesting to be able to open GoodNotes in reading mode rather than in editing mode. I noticed that often, when I want to consult a note, I make a lot of barbel on the first page because I try to scroll through the pages. Maybe just put this option in the settings for those who are not interested. Thank you
