Rearrange Multiple Pages
Currently I can only rearrange one page at a time.
If I want 5 pages to be moved up or down in page order, I have to rearrange one by one.
Here’s a work around that I use.
This is crucial to moving GoodNotes from a convenient to a necessary app. Being able to restructure notebooks (add sections, append pages for annotation and then move to the proper section, etc) is critical to my work flow.

This is a computer. Moving pages around should be one of the big advantages of using a computer versus a paper notebook. As it is, moving pages is a huge pain, both in the iPad and the Mac version. You should be able to re-size the pages in the contact sheet view on the Mac, select multiple pages, and cmd-X, cmd-V them where you want! The pain of re-arranging my notebook has me re-evaluating whether or not I want to use this product and it has only been 2 weeks!
Would be a great improvement.
In einem Notizbuch kann ich mehrere Seiten auswählen, ein verschieben an einen neuen Platz ist aber nur Seite für Seite möglich (nicht alle markierten zusammen). Diese Funktion wäre sehr hilfreich.
Yes please! Stack pages and drag to rearrange would be a start. Better yet: a possibility to link/unlink pages, so they can be always moved „together“. Not sure „stack“ 75 pages of a PDF document by tapping each one of those pages is a convenient workflow...

Honestly, I'm amazed that this feature is not already in the app given that we are now in the 5 iteration. Would *really* love to have this - would make things so much easier.

I would like this too, but I've found a decent workaround:
1. Go to thumbnail view
2. Tap "Edit"
3. Tap each page that you want to move.
4. Tap "Copy"
5. Tap "Done"
6. Tap the plus sign.
7. Tap a plus symbol between the pages where you want your selected pages to go.
8. Tap "Paste Copied Pages"
9. Tap "Done"
10. Tap "Edit"
11. Tap the originals of the pages you just copied.
12. Tap "Trash".
That's 10+ more taps than it would be if you could just multi-select pages and drag/drop them to another spot in the thumbnail view, but possibly better than dragging each page individually.
It would be good if we could stack pages then drag to rearrange. It is very, very time consuming to move one page at a time. It also becomes confusing which pages to move as you manage a large number.
