Re add manual sorting of documents in goodnotes 4.0
Goodnotes 3 one could manually sort the notes, please add the function again as name and date is not enough, at university I sometimes upload allot of docs at a time and need to re order them!!
Adjust your hand position.
Adjust the Sensitivity.
Find a pen style that is close to your preferred writing utensil.
Play around with line thickness.
Try adding lines or grid lines while you write.
Try changing the position or angle of your iPad.
I spent the evening last night putting astericks and z’s to my folder names in order to force them into an order I preferred. Would be much easier if I could just customize how I want them sorted!
Better inner organization, such as manually placing documents in a order we prefer within the folders. Could possibly be a option labeled "custom" if implemented
I'm missing the function to sort the library items by created date!

That way I could put the folders or files that I use the most on top and those that I use the less on the bottom. It would help to organise it our way so it is more practical.
Would be great!

Please add the feature to sort your notes manually!
For example: my prof uploads page 1 and 2, so I import those files into GoodNotes. After a week he reuploads page 1 because of a mistake. I delete the earlier version of page 1 and import the new one into GoodNotes. Now I can't change the order, so page 2 is before page one.
Yes, I was about to post the same thing! This is supper annoying (especially with folders) and the reason why I'm thinking of switching to Notability..
In OneNote, which I currently use alongside GoodNotes, there is the option to order notebooks and pages in whatever order I want. Meaning, I don't need to stick to alphabetical or date related organization; I can drag around my documents in whatever order I want and they stay put in that location until I move them around. There should be an option that allows free, subjective moving of such notebooks/folders with no "rule" dictating their location along with the current options for organizing based on name/date. I order my notes based on chapters by titling them Chapter 1, Chapters 3-4, Chapter 5, etc. However, my Chapters 3-4 show up after the Chapter 5 under the current alphabetical organization, slowing me down when I'm trying to quickly find certain documents.

I have the problem very often that I search for notes very long because I can not sort them manually.
So I would really love to hear that a manual sort option will be implemented .

I solve This problem by numrering the notes as i ceratet them. This way the sort by Name is converted to sort by creation date.
the new added folders are nice, but the file management leaves a lot to be desired as mentioned in the key comment.

Please consider this. This way I can revise a notebook and conveniently put it at the last for revising again.
This will really help in simplifying my revision schedule!
My first GoodNotes was GoodNotes 4. This version had a great sorting feature - where you could make it look like the index in a book. I REALLY miss this feature. It is so hard to sort the notes now...
There is mix of note files and folders. they must be aligned and seperated.
GoodNotes 5 ,The document interface has been sorted by “date” and “name”. Can you add “manual sorting”? Thanks
Please re-offer this functionality. It’s really an important time saver for visual and kinesthetic users. Also, being able to adjust icon size (small-medium-large) is really necessary to quickly find what I needs I grow my notebooks. I see that two posts have offered technical work around solutions for getting this to work with iCloud sync. I appreciate this great app as it’s revolutionized my work style. Thank you so much!
Please please please enable this feature. Also why only 3 docs per row? Used to be 4, if this could be a layout option that would be great. But more importantly let us order the notes manually, was so helpful.
I have been using goodnotes for years now, mainly for music charts, and I would always customize the order according to the set list of each live set. Now I have to try find each document on the go, which is very inconvenient for live performances.
I can't really see any improvements of goodnotes 4 over goodnotes 3, apart from stability of the app, there seams to be a few backward steps of functionality. And why did we have to pay $12 for this?! For something that should have just been a free update, and for a lesser product :(
And to combine several documents to one single document .... So when you have 3 PDFs in a Mail, you take them each one to Good Notes, but can not combine them right now ....
We need to be able to manually sort our notes. By name and date is not good enough :(
