Show two pages of the same notebook in landscape mode
It should be allowed to show two pages of the same notebook at the same time instead of only able to show two notebooks side by side. This allows us to read more at a time, or even draw diagrams that can span two pages.
Thanks for the suggestion. We’ll consider it. In the meantime, please try opening the same notebook twice in two windows, which is possible after updating to iPadOS.
Please do this! The two windows implemented right now feels just like a work-around, not a solution!
This feature will be also *super-awesome* in the MacOS version of the app, since the screen size on it is almost always bigger than any iPad's screen and also practically always in "landscape" mode.
I'm currently using a 34'' and usually I have to switch app whenever on my Mac because I cannot stand the fact that I can just read one page at a time with GoodNotes. It's quite annoying!
The fact that this has been requested hundreds of times in multiple posts over the past 8 years, yet nothing has been done is quite sad. It is clear this is a desired functionality that other apps have figured out how to provide. The two-window solution simply doesn’t work in every situation, otherwise there wouldn’t be so many people requesting the two-page view. Please make this happen!
The "try this instead" is not helpful. I hope devs can see all the comments.
I agree with all comments! I came here through a google search to learn how to do this because it felt like an obvious feature. A definite drawback of GoodNotes...

More people use widescreen and it would be a great help, if for example 3-4 subsequent pages could be displayed next to each in a way, that if the user scrolls all 4 displayed pages change accordingly.
The side by side view can't do that, because each window needs to be manipulated individually.
And it should be allowed to choose "show the first page separately" or not, in order to display scanned document normally.

The multi window workaround - is not acceptable. To be a real notebook, it has to act like a real notebook - we need a view that spans two pages at a time. I need this for my bullet journal template. reviewing the site, people have been asking this for 6 YEARS! Is this just impossible to do?
I wish the same! This would give the exact same feeling like a real notebook: having two pages open side by side in landscape. Currently it’s hard for me to write a real bullet journal like in a analog notebook (Leuchtturm or Moleskine). Opening another GoodNotes windows in split screen ain’t a satisfying solution.

The "try this instead" is not really helpful because the whole point of a two-page-at-a-time navigation (like macOS Preview's "View -> Single Page / Two Pages / Continuous Scroll" feature) is that you can quickly see a lot and flick through many pages quickly. If you open two windows of the same document you would have to keep turning pages independently on both windows--what??
