Infinitely long sheets
It would be nice if we could have infinitely long sheets like in Onenote. There really isn't a need to be restricted to physical dimensions of paper anymore.
Hey everyone, in GoodNotes 5, we added the ability to set the scrolling direction to “vertical”: https://support.goodnotes.com/hc/en-us/articles/360000118135-How-to-set-the-scrolling-direction-to-horizontal-or-vertical
We’re using a framework for page handling that treats every page as a separate file. This allows things like:
- export of a selection of pages
- easy reordering of pages within a document
- rotation of pages
- adding images/photos as standalone pages
- mixing multiple file types (PDF, Word, PowerPoint, GoodNotes) in a single document
Since each page is an individual file, a truly infinite sheet is not feasible with the current framework.
If not making an infinit page…
Please add the option to arrange PDFs on an infinit space. To have like a mindmap overview of all topics on the pages. To brainstorm and to arrange things between pages (fitting to the new feature, of moving things, with the lasso, in between pages.
View it as a new way of displaying a page overview.
The pages system could exist like normal separat to it.
That would be even better cause you would be able to view specific parts (the pages/ ‘topics’)as single normal pages.
It is so important…

In response to moderato comment, this is an option in noteability which also treats each page like a file. Also,in notability, I can write on on one page and continue it to the next without lifting my pencil.

Infinite scrolling is very important to move objects around

Will Goodnotes add infinite canvas to their next update? I am considering not using this app because of how long it takes to change from requests made by so many.

The app Nebo has this exact feature. The “infinite boards” aren’t truly infinite, they have a border. What happens is that as you zoom out, the app pops in new chunks of board. This makes it easier to run this feature on older devices, but still gives the sensation of having an infinite canvas. I imagine in 99% of cases, users would never go to the furthest extent of Nebo’s “infinite” board, but that feature is important for brainstorming and other activities that sometimes need more real estate.

I agree with all of the users, I understand why you may handle every page as a separate file but it makes it really hard to shift things around or connect ideas when you are a student. Connecting ideas is very important especially on powerpoint PDFs that are provided by teachers. I made the switch to Good Notes from notability because of the beautiful interface but now I am considering switching back due to this feature not existing in Good notes.
This would be so great!! To not have to keep creating new pages and having breaks between them interrupting the workflow thought flow.

But is it possible to retain that feature of selecting which pages to export by treat each page as an individual file but still has a feature like OneNote where it is able to take notes outside of the pages if the imported pdf pages are too small and no space to write on? Bcs it will be very useful to students as we have a lot to write on notes that reference to the original notes in the page but sometimes the pages are just not big enough

This was my request a few days ago! I would love to have just one continuous page in vertical mode
This is a very important function.I hope u engineers can make another framework for user to choose rather than telling us u can’t do it under the current framework

Users have been requesting this since 2016!
I believe users only want an option to have freeform/infinite pages versus replacing the main framework. Such as NEBO they have regular notes/documents and a freeform page
And you can export it as a whole as a pdf/png/svg etc
PLEASEE THIS WOULD MAKE THE APP SUPERIOR instead of having to use multiple different apps.

Really wish we could have infinite scrolling on at least one page template. Particularly infinite horizontal scrolling.
Michael Echteld commented
I too would like to work with an infinite canvas. I agree with the user who mentioned the unwanted breakdown of a train of thought. My notes often combine text and graphical elements / diagrams, and I rarely can predict how they will evolve re: shape and size. Having an infinite canvas would be great. Remember this? "Since random access memory is restricted to 640K, multitasking and graphical user interfaces are not feasible with the current framework."

I don’t particularly like the feature of pulling up to get a new page

In 2023, there are many more infinite canvas software, such as hepatabase, obsidian, and logseq, but they do not have such mature handwriting technology as goodnotes. Maybe we can consider adding a function to create infinite canvas while retaining the current framework. Or is it a good way to simply re-create a software that focuses on handwriting infinite canvas?

It is insane that this isn't already a feature. If having discrete pages is the limiting factor, it seems like the obvious solution would be to have an infinite grid of pages displayed with zero gaps between them, then only the "pages"where the user has written something would be saved to the notebook. This may have been too hardware intensive once upon a time, but there is no excuse with modern tablets
If you updated your iOS to the newest version just use Freeform! thats what I've been doing at least
