"Favorites pens" as tools
Im using green thin and navy thick pen.
and need to change very quickly.
but everytime I have to select color and pen size.
that would be awesome configurable favorite pens on top of bar for one click select the pensize+color
yes notability has this! makes notetaking infinitely easier!
This seems like an obvious one. I've only had the app 4 days but it's so frustrating and troublesome changing the pencil, color, and size every 20 seconds as I'm writing notes...

Notability added this function! Please Add this in goodnotes as well!
This is an absolute must have.

Add another me as another user who wants this feature. Tied to changing pens, colors, thickness all the time. Especially when GN implementation for dark mode makes colors on toolbar useless writing on dark paper - GN doesn't auto invert. Even iOS Notes has this feature. Why can't GN5 have a list of favorite pens?????? So close to switching to a competitor!!!!!!!!
Amazed when looked down the list and this feature has been asked for YEARS
Agree. Has to have a way to anchor 3 favourite pens with color on tool bar. Also please include pencil instead of all pens.
Flexcil (www.flexcil.com) have implemented something neat for favourite pen selection. They have many options we can define and it is extremely time saving to select my favourite option.
Daniel on 12 Sept 2016 has also presented an easy idea with a link of his idea.
Yes, will be an extremely useful feature to add. I liked Flexcil for that.

They should look at Noteshelf 2. They have the perfect solution for this problem.
I really need quick access to my most used pens (size/color) and markers.
I love GoodNotes, but without that feature I have to stick with Noteshelf most of the time.
It would be great! I study German and use three colors at a time for identifying words gender, changing the color constantly is inefficient.
the ignorance of Good Notes developers is the reason why I changed to Noteshelf.

Having to re-create the same pens that you use over and over and over is extremely unwieldy. There’s plenty of room in the top bars of both the normal and enlarged views for six or more favorite pen/pencil styles. And by “styles” I mean being able to have each of the six be different in all parameters. I use the three available colors in the enlarged view constantly, but the fact that they all have to be the same width is limiting. Please, please, PLEASE!!
Added vote for favorite pens - would make a great program perfect!
I think it could be very simple.
I uploaded a simple example on my website:
Just have not only one but several pens. Each of them can be customized in color and size. That's it. It would improve my workflow extremly.
Thanks a lot!
This is a great idea because I need to change pen color very quickly when I am taking note. Clicking two times to change pen color really makes me frustrating. Please add at least one more color on the toolbar.

Could this feature be set to be gesture controlled as well? So lets say I save 5 Presets (which I can't do now) if i could figure tap 1,2,3,4,5 times to activate my favorites or some kind of gesture anyway.
Would be great to have a favorite choice of different pens like "Noteshelf" has.
I use the highlighter in shape recognition mode. Each time I switch highlighter to pen, I must also deactivate shape recognition mode. That makes work incredibly inefficient with goodnotes. So yes, please add favorite pens, and allow us to select the shape mode for each pen.
