Enable to create links between pages
As the contents in the notebook keeps increasing over a period of time, I would like to have a link or connector to a previous page or a different book within the app to quickly navigate to the desired content instead if flipping through the pages.

Yes please! ZoomNotes already has this capability but I don't really like the interface on that app.
For now, just being able to link within the one notebook would be great.
The good thing about GoodNotes is the ability to move my pages around, but that makes it very hard to make any kind of indexing - or manual page references - useful.
If there's a way to point to a page, no matter where it gets shifted in the notebook, that would be great!
Agree - need to be able to easily jump between pages within a notebook & across notebooks.
This Please! I love taking notes and would love to be able to link things together by topic, despite where they fall in my "notes".

Yes. And not only within notes, but between different note files. One could also imagine that the resulting relationship tree, if visualized in some way, could be the basis for an automatic and interactive mindmap.
Up! This would be lovely

I’d like to use that feature for let say I’m taking notes about a patent idea, I’d like to later link the patent draft to those initial technical ideas. Or if I have notes about tasks a new person could take care of, I could laker link resume of candidats to those notes.
Gosh I really hope GoodNotes will have this in the future!! It would help me out so much.

Love this idea! I have been converting bullet journaling to Good Notes and this feature would be helpful for jumping to other sections of your journal.
Right now this has 2063 votes. How many votes before it gets included in the next release?
YES! This would definitely persuade me to buy Goodnotes if this was a feature. I want to create a digital bullet journal, everyone says Goodnotes is the best app to use for that but it doesn't have this functionality.
I would love to be able to link a page of notes to my daily timetable. Say I plan to study German from 2pm-3pm, I could write it in to my bullet journal and then link to the page of notes I made when I actually studied. Same for class/lecture notes to be linked to a daily/weekly planner spread. It would be so useful!!
Please. Just do it already.

Definitly what keeps me from using Goodnotes :(
I love the possibility of adding links between pages of an annotated pdf or even between different pdf in other apps like Liquid Text ...
I wish Goodnotes would do something like this !

Here's another vote for links and an URL scheme in general. I want to be able to put a marker anywhere and generate a link to it. This link could be put in a TOC in that document itself, another document or could be pasted into something outside of Goodnotes. That way I could make a todo item in Omnifocus with a link to the Goodnotes doc and page that it refers to. Right now this is a huge pain and costs a lot of time. I literally love everything else about GoodNotes -- if it could do this too then I could use Shortcuts, etc, to extend the functionality to do so many other things. Thanks for reading.
We really need links in Goodnotes 5 :-/
YES YES YES YES YES!!! And a thousand more yeses!
I love the OP’s suggestion of hot zones. I would want the option of hiding or displaying hot zones as well. The lasso tool should also be able to include/exclude hot zones in the selection.
See Apple’s free Keynote app for iOS for another nice example of implementation — including the general document navigation links (next, previous, last viewed page, etc.)! There should also be a way to link to a page in a different GoodNotes doc.
And when any linked item is copied and pasted elsewhere, I would certainly want the link settings to go with it. This would allow me to create tabbed dividers for navigating.
Agreed, this would make navigating lecture notes and textbook notes a lot easier, and make it more user friendly.
Please add the possibility to paste clickable web links inside notes. When working with different websites, this is a must. Otherwise, I have to keep the web links separately from my notes. It is very inconvenient and inefficient.
