I really need this option to group text with images!!!
Especially images and handwriting notes must have the option to be grouped, otherwise it makes a mess when accidentally moving the image.

Would love the group feature to include being able to group the text you want on your sticky note that way it can still be editable and easier to move
Todd Warrington commented
This would be a significant improvement. I would use the feature to group branches of mindmaps to make it easier to manage and move things around as I add new branches.
Pat Bautista commented
Agree please add this so that it will be easier to move different elements and to rotate it.

We really need this feature. It's confusing that Good Notes doesn't have it.
Ludan Huang commented
This feature would make goodnotes a much better app! Same thoughts applies to text and highlight, and many other combinations - grouping would make the note much more versatile.
Grouping and locking items (objects or “layers”) are right up there with most important missing features.
Joel Nat commented
Please add this feature

I was really annoyed that this isn't a feature, I accidentally select objects I don't want to select and miss objects that I want to. Please add this.
An option to merge a group of text together, merge stickers with text, etc.
I would like to be able to group sections of text, eg it may just be titles, or parts of text from various parts of the page, so that I can edit (and re-edit) as a group, rather than having to select them individually every time I want to make changes.
To be able to group elements/objects to prevent accidental movement and to add charts/tables into GoodNotes please!!
The ability to group objects would be invaluable. Please GoodNotes team!

Yes please. It is actually very troublesome to use the lasso tool and keep on circling a math equation carefully in order to move and resize. Every time doing so, I always selected something else and it is getting quite frustrating. Please make them possible to be group together!
Please make this happen! This feature would be huge

Please, GoodNotes 5!

It is 8 years since this post and still the most frustrating thing is writing over an image and then being unable to move the text without moving the image - or erase text without erasing shape behind it. It would be so good if you could lasso elements and choose to lock them in place on the page
