Writing tools shortcuts
If there could be a tray where I can add 4-5 various colors of pens and highlighter mimicking a real physical object that I can just pickup and write. For example, I could add a red colored pen with fine thickness, a black colored pen with bold thickness, yellow highlighter pen with certain thickness and automatic straight line.
In that way I can jump between each tools and options without having to turn on/off auto-straight-line function or adjust the thickness every time I change a writing tool.
You can let this function to be optional that users can toggle on/off in settings if you are afraid that it will complicate the app too much.

2020 and still we need a " favorite tools " option. Notability added it!

I would like this to go a step further and create some kind of gesture that would allow me to cycle through preset tools so I don't need to move my pencil to the top bar of the page to swap out a color or switch to an eraser. It really breaks my flow to have to stop, select a tool from the top of the page, then try to find where I'm writing.
I think the Apple Pencil 2's "double tap" gives the GN team a great excuse to work out how to switch quickly between tools.
For Pencil 1 users, I could imagine a gesture where you tap the pencil on the screen twice, but hold it on the second tap. A ring of options (user-selected) appears around the pencil and with a radial flick in a particular direction (like drawing the hand of a clock), the user selects a different tool.
Also might like to have the option of making this tray a "floating" item that stays visible on the screen at all times & could be dragged to any convenient location with a finger.
This would be very useful

Oh yes, this would be great. Much easier than having to constantly change thickness, etc.
This would be SO helpful. OneNote has it. Why doesn't goodnotes??

This is a standard for many applications. I wonder why GoodNotes does not have it.
This would be INCREDIBLY useful and allow for me to be much more efficient and save so much time. Please allow this. Microsoft OneNote has recently added this functionality and it would be great if GoodNotes could do the same.
