Align typed text with a template's horizontal bars.
Text box positions and fonts should be aligned such that the multi-line typed text will be aligned with the current template's horizontal bars. This alignment should be the default initial behavior whenever a new text box is created.
The more I wait for this update, the less I want to use their app... It's revolting to see that it's been 9 years, and yet, such option seems evident as it should've been added when the app was out.
It’s been 9 years… this update is extremely necessary!
Some of us users like to type notes in a “standard” manner, meaning without it being necessary to create a text box of our desired size and space between lines.
GoodNotes is one of the few apps that allow to write over typed text, it would be a GREAT IMPROVEMENT if it had a BASIC typed text support similar to word, apple notes, google docs, etc. While for users who prefer the freedom that a text box creates, this should still be an available option.
If goodnotes did this they would change the game. It always bothers me that my text is slightly off. If the text is off then then your handwriting will be off. Please add this feature Goodnotes <3
So I might have found the sweet spot for aligning text on the text box: set text size to 38, click on the four horizontal lines next to the box where you change the text size, and change line spacing to 45.51 pt. Hope this helps as a temporary fix…
People have been wanting this since 2013. It seems so necessary. If you provide pages with lines you should be able to type on those lines!

I hope to have this feature very much. This wil be espetially useful for those who want to combine many keyboard inputs with hand writing.
It is not difficult to implement. I can see GoodNotes already allow setting the line height i the template, why not just add a function to allow setting the line height of the text box, and make it the same as the line heigh of the template by default?

I thought about this too, but sometimes you want to cram a lot of text in a very small space, and some backgrounds don't even have lines. If they do this, I'd like to be able to turn it on/off.
