Sub-Outline in Outlines
When I import some PDFs their outlines are imported too. I love this feature. I have noticed that when this happens, the outlines have sub-outlines to make navigating the outlines easier.
However, I can not create this in my own GoodNotes outlines. It only works when I import a PDF that already has this structure built into it.
I would like to have a feature in GoodNotes where I can create sub-outlines in my notebooks.
100% support this suggestion too here. I think this could really be a game changer, especially for class notes.

This is crucial for me. I need to be able to FULLY edit the outline of a pdf like pdfexpert does. Right now, to do the same (create sub outlines, for example), i need to export a pdf, use adobe acrobat pro to edit the outline, compress the pdf because Goodnotes exports horribly large pdfs, import the pdf back to Goodnotes and delete the original file... :-|

And make the Outline tree collapsible so that you can navigate and sort pages quickly into sections/subsections.

To organize notes, pages and sections.

Add subsections to each outline for better organization. For example, in a textbook there can be one outline for each chapter, and then when you click on the outline a drop down menu of each section in the chapter comes up. This would be great for organization. Something like this.
I support this suggestion.
There are already various posts wishing for a way to make the outline structure more hierarchical, but under various names, so I am trying to summarize the wish here.
To navigate more efficiently within a notebook, it would be super convenient to have outlines on various levels as (Chapter-section-subsection structure):
- 1.1 section
- 1.2 section
--- 1.2.1 subsection
- 2.1 section
--- 2.1.1 subsection
- 2.2 section
and so on...
This would make GoodNotes so much better!
If there is an error in the automatically imported outline, it cannot be deleted. I hope that the automatically imported error outline can be deleted, and I can create a secondary outline myself. The automatically imported outline can be more intelligent, because my imported outline is often wrong.

This is the best suggestion so far

Chapter 1: Number Systems & Conversion
— 1.1: Digital Systems & Switching Circuits
— 1.2: Number Systems & Conversion
— 1.3: Binary Arithmetic

@Robert: That's not true. In one note I have the possibility to indent pages and thus I can represent a structure.
Adding sub-outlines respectively levels to GoodNotes would increase the overview a lot and hence make navigation within a notebook so much easier!
None of the note taking app does this or do it in limited bases. It requires restructure the entire program. PDF template is the only way to do it. There are some choices for purchase or make one yourself.

I’m looking for an option to create an outline with more than one level. Currently it is not possible to indent additional bullets. I’d like to structure a notebook with an clear agenda like the following example:
1. Project #1
1.1 General Information
1.2 Phase xyz
1.3 Another phase
1.4 Close out
2. Project #2
2.1 General Information
2.2 Meeting minutes
2.2.1 November 2019
2.2.2 December 2019
2.2.3 January 2020
2.3 To dos
2.5 Close out
3. Project #3
... and so on
- those unnested sub-outlines appear along with the main outlines, making the outline page a big messy. To find a specfic outline, I need to sort through all the messy outlines
Some classes have very long slides making it hard to handle large amounts of bookmarks. The ability to nest bookmarks (like the PDF outlines) would be very handy.
