Dear Goodnotes development team,
I propose adding a new feature that allows adding an audio or video file to the goodnotes file.
I need to reformat a template and don’t want to trash all previous data entries. How can this be done?
Thanks developers this good app.
1. Add Change stroke Option in secretion mode or brush formatting tool in next update.
2. Be available on android version.
adding more fonts would be great (with an emphasis on handwritten fonts)
some fonts suggestions are (short stack, coming soon, delius, etc)
also pitch black writing templates, and cute minimalist cover pages
I need to keep some of my notes private. It would be good to have an option to put a passcode for each notebook or, at least, for the app itself.
As a Good Notes App User, I want to be able to choose a Notebook Template, where I can scroll the pages Up and Down, and not only turn them to the Left or Right, so that I can never ran out of the page space on the iPad screen and keep my hand laid on the screen at all the times, as I write and approach the bottom of the page on the screen and have my hand hanging and that way making it uncomfortable to write.
The eraser is horrible, why is it round? The eraser in Nebo is just like using a pencil eraser. The circle drives me crazy, because it goes into the line above and below to erase and that is usually not wanted. Can you give us a better eraser?

Allow us to colour folders different colours and maybe even design folders like notebooks. Add B5 and B6 sizes. Shape tools are also a bit hard to use, i wish there maybe was a menu for us to select common shapes and just resize it instead of having to draw it by hand first.
Two features that would make things infinitely better would be the ability to work in layers and move them. (this way no matter which order an image or shape is added you can rearrange their layering. And The ability to add links to pages from another page. This would stop those of us who create from creating the doc/ template in Keynote and importing (and then not being able to further customize).
This would be a great feature because I could use the infrastructure I want to store my different files and Evernote is perfect for organising notes etc. It would be perfect to use in conjunction with Goodnotes.
go back to open documents:
Often, when I have a few tabs open, I want to search for another document. Often, I give up and just want to return to the documents I already have open. There is currently no way to do this that I can figure out. It would be very helpful to have such a "give up the search and return to open documents" button. As is, I have to pretend to open a random document to return to the tabbed open docs, and then close it.

Add the ability to upload notes written on paper and scanned via other apps, like Montblanc Hub or Rocketbook.
ive been using notability for a while. l love It, but I wish it had goodntes filing system. the only reason I use notability is because I use the recording device while I take notes. if goodnotes adopted this feature I would switch in a heartbeat. please consider it.
Feature request: page numbers
I am a Physics teacher and use GoodNotes extensively.
Here are THREE SUGGESTIONS:
1. After selecting an object using the lasso tool the menu should automatically come up and should not require an additional tap. Should the user opt to just move the selection using the Apple Pencil, the menu can automatically disappear or move with the selection.
2. The menu should include a ‘Duplicate’ option in addition to the ‘Copy’ option. This would be a great time-saver!
3. Please add support for animated GIF files. I currently switch to Notability to show animated GIFs. Would be great to do it in GoodNotes itself.
Please restore one functionality back to the toolbar!
Inside a notebook, there was one functionality that enables users to see all pages (that icon looked like four squares). It is really convenient!
The previous version has it, but the latest version moved it to somewhere else (this is not convenient).
Please make a version that would work on a surface pro. I would pay all the money for it.
It is not possible to act on a note (e.g. delete or move) from the Search screen. You can only open a note. Once opened you can Move, but only Delete from the Documents screen.
Please make Move and Delete available both on the Search screen and while viewing a document.

Being able to encrypt/password protect notes would be super handy!
As a teacher, I love this app! It's working wonders for me during isolation.
Is it possible to add a 'Number of pages' function when creating a new Notebook? I spend quite a bit of time duplicating blank pages when I start a new Notebook - ideally, I'd just like to say create a new Notebook with 10 pages.
