zoom percentages display
Hi, I was wondering if you guys are considering a zoom percentage display. The issue in having is when I zoom in and find the magnification I like and then zoom out and zoom back in it’s hard to get that same magnification I previously had because I don’t know how far in or out I zoomed. It would be nice to display the zoom in and out percentages in a small box on the top or side of screen.
This really frustrates me. We requested this over 2 years ago and it’s such a simple feature. Yet so critical.

Guys! how hard is it to have a zoom percentages display???
I do need a consistent note.

Yes. It is very important. I struggle a lot to keep the page at the perfect zoom level. In Notability, by default, in horizontal view, the paper completely fills the ipad screen. This should also be for GoodNotes or else a lot of people will struggle to get the perfect zoom level to fit the paper to the ipad screen completely. Thank you.
Below I have attached the default page view for both the apps.
One more important thing is that the maximum zoom out level in GoodNotes is very less. I cannot get the complete view for few pages by zooming out. GoodNotes is not letting us zoom out more. This can be done in notability. Please add this feature to GoodNotes.

Yes! I really need this. I’m going to look at OneNote… just can’t be spending so much time finding the right spot. I think I’m going to number the lines on my dotted notebook and take note of how many I need to display to be in the right spot for my handwriting

This would also help when switching from portrait to landscape mode and vice versa
Yes please add this and a default zoom setting (full page, page width, or a specific percentage).

... and a way to easily snap to a 1:1 zoom scale.
Please add this!

Soooooooooooooo important and necessary
🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏 please ad this feature.
If I understand it correctly, currently only the following options are supported:
- Zoom to fit page width (double tap).
- Zoom to fit whole page (double tap).
- "Free" zooming (pinch), without any clue about the current zoom level value.
These are good, but the following improvements would be great:
- Zoom percentage indicator: it would be great to have one on the toolbar. If possible, it should indicate the current zoom percent in real-time even when zooming in/out is in progress. If not possible to update real-time on the toolbar then an additional overlay value could be shown temporarily during zooming.
- A UX solution to be able to save and reuse some custom preset zoom values. The preset values could then be selected with e.g. a dropdown list, or a slider with marked sticky spots (like in MS Office), or even with additional buttons on the toolbar (although it's less preferred). By default the preset list could include "page with", "full page", and "100%". As others mentioned before, 100% zoom should mean the natural size of the paper, which would be calculated based on the paper size and the device DPI.

I would strongly support this. Just to be clear: "100%" zoom should be when the 1cm on the screen matches 1cm on the virtual paper. So it would depend on the device DPI.
Please add this! I always have a hard time when I have to zoom out because I know that I’m going to loose my sweet spot and it’s going to take time to get back to it
I don't want to be harsh on you but you should get inspired by the OneNote MS for iPad, try it out it's free! They have great solution! They have in "view" option to rest the zoom of the page to 100% and the option of pinching the page in and out and simultaneously showing percentage of zoom. Implement that for an ordinary page (and maybe something different for "zoom box that can be turned on or of, I don't use that.. but some do.." You should definitely add that to the goodnote5
Onenote has a good implementation of zoom percentage. It helps me get back to my sweet spot for writing with the pencil. I would like to have it in goodnotes too!
In my case mostly I’m using zoom and resize. so my zoom ratio mostly miss matched. Each and every time I’m wasted or distracted my time&mind in zooming and resizing page. So kindly provide this is a feature or settings. I hope this feature mostly useful for other also.
I wholeheartedly agree with this. Plus, having a 100% zoom option would help me anticipate what my writing will actually look like in a pdf or when I print a page of notes on letter-size paper, for example.
I have the same problem, every time I zoom in and out, letter size changes. A zoom percentage indicator would be a very good addition to the app.
Yes, we need this function very much!
I find I have a sweet spot for how zoomed in I named to be for an optimal wring experience. Having a small indicator that tells me I’m zoomed in X percent would be really useful.
Big quality of life improvement.
Its a really a useful feature. To get good handwriting, we use the technique of zooming the the page and writes on it. This technique works perfectly but problem is, if each zoom is not same then size of the text will be different in each page. If you know the zooming percentage, we can keep it consistant text size or keep similar size for each type of headings. zoom, i mean, zooming in page using fingers.Thanks a lot for this wonder full app.
