Ability to do bullet points when typing notes
when typing notes, ability to do organized bullets/numbering would be great.
we have to type "tab" every single line to make an organized list --- that just doesn't work for me. I'm in my first week of medical school, and I know this applies to a ton of people in other fields too -- it's super infeasible to handwrite every note/list. please please PLEASE change this. until then, I have to switch :(
Pleases add this! Something similar to what Evernote or Notability has.
It's the only thing missing for this to be my one-stop note-taking app.
Surprising that so many are noting the “work around” of option+8. On this iPad Pro 2018 with Apple keyboard, that only creates a bullet point *character*, but it does not create an indented list starting with a bullet point. That’s the whole point. People are asking not for “bullets” but for an indented, multi-level, bulleted (and numbered) list. Please add. Sometimes typing is appropriate, even in a hand-writing app. And every note-taking app has that basic functionality.
It would be awesome to have a layer feature. For example, sometimes I wish I could create my own table or planner page by using the line tool. It would be great if I could design the page, then hit a button to basically save everything I’ve done so far and make it part of the background so it can no longer be altered. Then I could use the other tools to take notes or draw right on top of that. Even better if you can just keep them on separate layers, so if you do find that you need to edit the background image, you could still do so
Oh ok. I’m sitting here trying to take notes and type and I thought I just couldn’t find the how-to. Please make GoodNotes more typing friendly. 5 years is a long time. But I hope it gets updated soon. Please and thank you
Update. Like 30 minutes later lol. The app supports bulletpoints, I just can’t find a button or section for it. You can do it directly through keyboard commands. It would still be nice to have the type/text portion of the app to be more stable and user friendly. Please and thank you.
I don’t know about windows or regular keyboards, but for anyone that has a mac keyboard, press option and 8, and it does a bullet point. =)
This is legit the feature that has kept me from switching to GoodNotes from Notability for years.
We need Bullets and tables in GoodNotes!
Needs ability to record, and preferably record while taking notes
Flash cards within the app would be a huge deal!
Bullet points when typing notes and basic typing formatting would be a big help
Yes please add basic text formatting toolbar
I really love everything else about goodnotes, this is the main shortcoming I come across though

Sehr geehrtes GoodNotes-Team,
ich nutze GoodNotes täglich für Mitschriften von Vorlesungen an der Hochschule.
Ich bin sehr zufrieden mit dieser App. Allerdings fehlt mir beim Erstellen eines Textes die Möglichkeit der Gliederung durch Punkte oder Zahlen wie bei der klassischen Word Funktion.
Außerdem wäre es super, wenn man beim Einfügen eines längeren Textes einen Seitenumbruch hinzufügt. in meinem Fall werden häufiger Texte hinzugefügt, die länger als die Seite sind und somit abgeschnitten werden bzw. ein Teil des Textes nicht mehr zu sehen ist. Die App Notability besitzt diese Funktionen, macht es durch die Ordnerstruktur aber nicht möglich mit ihr zu arbeiten. Daher wäre ich ihnen sehr dankbar, wenn diese Punkte noch nachgerüstet werden. Dann ist die App für mich komplett!
Ich freue mich über eine Rückmeldung!

please put in layering features(bullets) in text
It is a very elementary feature, i believe that many are wanting it to be added
Please add bullet points and organized lists.
For studying mathematics, this app is perfect. It allows me to easily transition from type to mathematical notation. However, not being able to use bullets or any form of note taking structure is killing me. Please add!!!
Turning - into bullet points, numbers into a numbered system (1. 2. etc)
This has been suggested before, so I hope you can compile the votes into one post.
Im sure theres more.

Its pretty ridiculous that this has been an ask since 2015, yet we still don't have it 5 years later. Such a simple ask, using this app on my Macbook is annoying as hell since I can't use bullet points. Love the iPad version, as its all handwritten for me. Please implement this soon.
Still asking for this in 2020.

The basic text formatting of the native Apple notes and OneNote would be great: bullets, checkboxes, headings, etc.
