More color options in top menu bar (more than just 3)
On OneNote I have 14 different colored pens and highlighters up top. GoodNotes is superior to one note in almost every way except this one. I color code my notes, so I am forced to used one note. If I were to try and color code using goodnotes, it would take me hours longer because there are so many extra clicks to get to the correct color of pen or highlighter. Having more color options up top and allowing both pens and highlighters in the menu bar like one note would be amazing.
There is plenty of room up there, changing pen thickness is not important enough to have that much space up top, other colors are. But honestly there is plenty of room for more colors, you could just shift the thickness all the way to the right and the other menu options all the way to the left and have room for 10 more colors.
Goodnotes updates many features more frequently than I expected. But I don't know why such a simple request cannot be added to their development schedule. Every year I revisit this page and this question, but as you could expect, always be disappointed.

Yea please give us more than 3 options. We need it
Please add this feature. Please I would like to use GoodNotes but this is critical for me and many other people. Please :(
Well said! Even I have so many ready to use colours in one note.
Onenote lacks a proper color selector but good note has it...but what's the use when I have only 3 options!
I've just switched from another notestaking app. I found out GoodNotes is better but man just make more colour options for us please. I don't know why it takes us almost 3 years to get this feature lolll but I'm waiting and I know there are many people waiting for this feature SO PLEASE GOODNOTES.

This is not the outcome I expected when I googled for how to increase the color slots in good notes. This would take 1 dev 1 day. Give it to an intern!
Adam Brown commented
Yes we need more than just 3 colors, this is one of the reasons why I'm going back to notability

Hope everyone can share this link to everywhere and everyone you know. Really need this to happen! Note taking is so difficult when you only have 3 colors to select quickly. Especially when your class is moving at a face pace and your lecturers talks so fast! Please please please 🙏🏻
I agree. There should be 5 of 6 colors to quickly pick from. Either in the top menu (there is enough space if we use the iPad in horizontal mode), or an advanced color preset list that we can slide out and place it at one of the other borders of the ipad.
Or give us a custom color picker list that opens on a gesture and closes after picking a color.
Being limited to 3 colors is so annoying that I switched to another app for some type of content.

Unistalling because of this. It’s such a basic feature…
Bucks Lin commented
WOW! that's what I'm looking for, at least 5-6 quick color selections on toolbar for smooth noting, PLEASE!!!!!

I totally agree, if there is not space enough you can make us able to delete some tools that we don’t use, I for example never used laser pointer or sticker option. If I could able to not see them there will be 2 more spot for color options that I will add and use them

This is an important improvement! Please include this on the next version. :)
Maybe you can do this by creating a moveable bar on the side.

i totally agree, please do this for the next actualization
I totally agree! The color choices are such a PITA to have to open the color panel every time, as I also use about 6 colors regularly on each page of my assignments!

Best suggestion ever. If I could choose only one change for GoodNotes… just ONE… it would be this. I would honestly consider paying more money for just that. Idk what that says about me, but I REALLY WANT THIS
Thomas G commented
Even if they made it a setting - the option to expand to 5, 7 or 10 colours!
I don't get why the devs are so stubbornly against adding this. Three colours is just too limiting when trying to do mind maps and organise concepts

I wholeheartedly agree. As a law student who uses GoodNotes to annotate all our cases, I use at least five different highlighter colors per case. Having more colors accessible quickly would really help especially when reading hundreds of pages against a timer.

Totally agree, at least a combo box menú with 7 color and 1 customized option
