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!!
As a student/teacher I need this. I have many documents of the same nature that I have to read and then prioritize. I need to be able to organize them.
Please consider to enable manual sorting since it is more like real life we put note or notebooks in an specific place not reordered by date or when accesed.

Please bring this back, I couldn't care less about iCloud but manual sorting is a requirement!
Also, blaming iCloud for this has got to be an excuse, there is no reason you couldn't...
1) Store the document positions in a separate [hidden] file that is synced to iCloud
2) Store the document positions locally and just accept that positions will not be synced
Please get on top of this.
I've just downloaded GoodNotes 4 and cannot believe that you can't manually sort your documents. What a backward step!! Why on earth would you remove this feature??!! Come on people at GoodNotes ... sort it out!
Honestly, with the page last viewed menu as well as a direct sync to the file storage of my (dropbox) cloud storage I would be totally happy and organized
YES. What the heck?! Why can't I hold and sort based on what I want and not by the name or date?? Now I have to add numbers or letters to sort in the way I want. Get rid of this date or name sort only. Allow for custom sorting please!!

AMEN! This is a must-have feature. I have lots of related documents in some folders and its a pain to keep them organized.
What a waste of functionality - no folder sort / arrangement capability!
This was recommended to me by someone... obviously they must be using V3!
So frustrating, not to be able to order documents into folders.
Will definitely not be recommending when such a basic feature is missing. Actually will be talking in the negative about this product.
Listen to your customers!
I'm very upset that I had to pay for the app TWICE and I can't rearrange my notebooks!!! The ONLY reason I'm using 4 is because ofcompatibilty issues. I will not be recommending this to anyone until this issue is fixed!!!
I found a good work around for this. Rename your files with alpha character as the first character (A,B,C and so on) or with numerical (1,2,3 and so forth) in your preferred order. Then sort files by name and they will line up the way you choose. It might be tedious if you have a lot of files, but if you just want a few of them in the first order it is a useful trick.
This exactly my first issue from day one, please allow me to do this
I completely agree with you guys.
The reason I used Goodnotes3, in addition to its excellent interface, was the entire bookshelf storage. I think most teachers and writers found that critical for storing papers, homework, documents, etc. This current version Goodnotes4 is a major step backwards, and makes me seriously wonder what the developers were thinking. I cannot recommend it anymore...too bad: you had a great product but ruined its usefulness for many of us.
Not being able to reorganize bookshelf significantly reduces the value of goodnotes. This is a feature that absolutely needs to be reintroduced. Goodnote is actually not a real option without this feature and I would need to look after other products.

I strongly agree. I've been using GoodNotes for maybe 3-4 years I guess and LOVED it. As a medical resident, I'm using a LOT of papers (>200 in version 3.0) and I enjoyed the app up to now. My vauching for GoodNote convinced a lot of my collegues to buy it !! Now I'm disappointed as a lot stated, I've continue using version 3.0 since I did'nt like the upgrade mainly because of the impossibility to customize the order of the files and because when I uploaded all my files to 4.0, my preciously arranged files were all mixed up !! At least we should be able to order them by date but last files first and not the opposite...
PLEASE FIX THIS !

In the 3.0 version, you could see the miniatures ef the current document, the marked ones, and the list of the
Pages viewed previously. This last option, allowed us to navigate through different documents in a very easy way. Coul this option be recovered In the 4.0 next update?
provide sort by date created or by date edited. Would help me a lot
My vote goes primarily to a custom order in the main screen. Tap Edit, and allow us to move the books around.
As much as many seem to love the old bookshelf, it would be totally out of place in the iOS8 flat style. So I don't support that part of this request.
The function is absolutely vital for teachers. I have a lot of text books and my students' home assignments and will be absolutely lost without being able to sort them my way. Will continue using goodnotes 3 for this reason (been using it for a couple of years now and was absolutely happy with it if it wasn't for ios8)
