More toolbar customisation
It would be good to be able to customise the toolbar since I’m sure there are features that some of us don’t use and could use the space for something else.
- Toggle which icons appear in the toolbar. Personally I never use and will probably never use the in-app camera and presentation mode. It would be great if there was an option to just turn those off.
- Allow the option to have more colour and pen size presets. 3 isn’t enough!
- When the zoom window toolbar finally returns, it would be great to have the same level of customisation.
Notability now has this feature and it is great! Makes the app much more useful to each individual
Can’t believe this option is not there yet. When I’m working in Goodnotes i always have to watch Al my pictures that are in the cloud. I don’t want that. I don’t want to constantly see the latest picture of the pimple in my face that I made yesterday.. (just to give an example) i hope that the option to adjust the toolbar will be there soon 🙏🏻 thank you Goodnotes!

For example, to be able to move items of the toolbar around or hide the one we are not using. In my case, because I’m right-handed, each time I reach to the undo button (which is on the top right since version 6), not only my arm hides the screen, but I also unwillingly touch other toolbar items, or worst, the arrow that leads me out of the document: pretty annoying.

ALSO: Please add the ability to toggle/hide the toolbar to allow full-screen writing without the distracting and intrusive toolbar.

I agree - I use an iPad Pro 11 and fin
d buttons I don't want (stickers and laser) mean I have to slide left and right. Also being left handed I'd like to rearrange these for left hander use - they favour right handers.
I agree. I only need pen sizes, colors, the pen and eraser. In the current state at least 50% of my screen are filled with functions I will never use.
100% agree -- it would be great to be able to switch off tools users don't need and have more efficient access to ones they do.
E.g. I mostly switch between pens, highlighters, different erasers and the lasso tool... I find I tend to have to two 2-3 selections for many of those switches:
- pen then different colour of pen
- eraser then eraser sub-menu then just erase highlights
This could be fixed with a direct access button for e.g. my colour-1 pen, my colour-2 pen, a normal-eraser, a highlights-eraser etc

I have made a design of how you could let us customize the Toolbar to hide the tools that we rarely use or never use them, in a Drop Down Menu in which we can add or remove tools.
It also acts as Hidden Toolbar, if you ever need one of the tools inside the Menu, you can simply tap on it (for example, the Typing Mode) and it will be selected and replace the one that is active in the Toolbar (in the image this is the Laser) and show the settings of the tool (in this case, the Style & Formatting, Paragraph and Colour) in the right of the tools in the Toolbar.

Customisable toolbar will be awesome. I like to switch colours a lot when highlighting. And as a lefty, I need to move my hands all the way across to change colours too often.
Definitely need toolbar customization. Being able to add/remove unused tools would be perfect for managing the limited space. E.g. when editing two documents side by side, I would rather see my pen thickness options and a few colours as opposed to the shape, sticker, image, textbox, and pointer tools
Also, if the pen size and colour scroll could be kept separate, that would be amazing. I.e. sliding the colour sections to the ones on the far right without the three pen thickness options being slid over and partially hidden.

Toggle icons toolbar is a MUST

Yes! Toolbar customization is a must for usability. The last update allows for adding more pen/highlighter colors, but now the pen/highlighter sizes are hidden behind a button for me (on iPad mini 6). This is essentially a downgrade for me since I constantly switch pen sizes just as much as colors. Being able to customize the toolbar to remove or hide the functions I barely ever or never use (zoom, stickers, shapes, laser pointer) so there is more room for pen sizes and colors would be a HUGE improvement. I am starting to look at other apps to see if they have the features I want, as the current version (5.9.90) is hindering my use.

This issue has been talked about since 2019 on different forums and on this page and they still haven’t updated it. Honestly poor from their behalf. If they really care about their users, they would have implemented it as this issue was discussed.

Please add the ability to add more pen colors to the tool bar at least 5. PLEASE

We need more quick color selection in the toolbar right now. It’s so awful with only 3 colors now
Chang Kian Hong commented
More colour of pen is always a better option, please make the changes since everyone is studying and working from home. Struggling to change the colour of the pen all the time and make my progress slow.

Exactly and there is so much room on the right side that an additional 2 colors won't even make difference.
