  1. It would be great if you had an option to password protect a selected notebook in case you have to create one that would contain sensitive information.

  2. Allow users to insert new brushes similar to the procreate app. That way we can completely customize our notebooks with calligraphy and other word art.

  3. Allow users to put comments on different layers. It would be helpful if these could be turned on/ off, or have their transparency % adjusted like in the Photoshop Touch application. Selecting annotations on one layer only or locking others would be useful as well.

  5. Add Zoom Percentage, please. The zoom affects the way we write and therefore if we'd like to keep our notes consistent in size and neatness. Adding a zoom percentage display would allow us to know what zoom size we prefer and always set our zoom percentages to that number.

  6. Allow indentation with bullet points on the "Bulleted List" on the new text feature on Goodnotes 5, not just on the first line of bullet points. Similar to how you would take notes using bullet points in Microsoft, Google, or Pages. PLEASE!

  7. Great App!!!
    I use the Zoom Windows to write notes. I encode items like reminders and events with title, date time, list name, and people using delimiters such as '#today$Buy some milk€Shopping' for a reminder or '$Risk meeting for ProjectX#23/7/18t12h30-13h00@Me;Email.address@domain.com' for an event. I then select the writing using the Lasso Tool to convert to text. I then share this text with Workflow extensions I have created which parses the examples into a reminder or event etc. It works great ;-)
    A long-shot... but... Could you create a button which lassos the area between the top and bottom…

    Definitely a very interesting idea but quite complex and probably only relevant for very tech-savvy power users. We’re not sure but maybe it is already doable using Shortcuts, as other apps can read the converted text.
