Customer Suggestions for GoodNotes

  1. I came over to the good note while using flexl.
    Good note's handwriting and comfort are touching.
    However, there were many inconveniences.
    First of all, when I see the pdf horizontally, I see only one page, so it is a waste of space. Don't crosswise support double-sided viewing.
    Second, I wish I had a pop-up note. There is a limit to taking notes on the pdf, and split views are uncomfortable.
    Thirdly, I wish I could easily grasp the pdf page.
    Hundreds of pages of major books are hard to open.
    I hope there is a function to see many…

  2. When you add a page by scrolling past the last page (or in front of the first page) it adds the new page in portrait mode even if the page you are scrolling from is in landscape mode.

    This was not the case in the previous version of GoodNotes. Can you make it so it makes the new page match the previous page in format like it did in the last version of GoodNotes?

  3. This was addressed partially in:

    https://feedback.goodnotes.com/forums/191274-customer-suggestions-for-goodnotes/suggestions/38524561-lock-zoom-in-presentation-mode

    But the solution is incomplete.

    The options in presenter mode are:


    • Mirror Entire Screen (can only imagine using this if I was teaching how to use good notes).


    • Mirror Presenter Page - This allows for zooming in, but often leads to some weird scrolling when you've zoomed in on one portion and then bring up the interface box (not sure of its name) and everything scrolls to where the interface box is.


    • Mirror Full Page - This is pretty good. Especially if your page and presentation are both in landscape mode. BUT it is…

  4. I would join this wish, in combination with a feature from OneNote, which I appreciate very much: Create a gap on the page by inserting a space of any height. This creates space between existing text or sketches for additions.
    It might be a problem to move the space to the next page, because the content of the next page is delimited. A compromise would be creating a page on which the moved part is pushed.

  5. I like to use the app because it’s awesome to insert images and make notes as I want, but the text box isn’t practical.
    It would be great if typewriting was easier by having ready-to-use pages and text pre-sets (sometimes it’s hard to adjust the space between lines and texts). It would also be nice to have tables options.

  6. Notability has the option of resizing the shapes, both enlarging and reducing but also making one side shorter or longer etc. I would like that in goodnotes

  7. it will be ok to import a picture ( for example a nautical compass), filtering white so it can be transparent ( already possible now ) and make an area impenetrable so that we can draw straight lines during lessons.

  9. Hello guys, I've been using both notability and goodnotes for over almost 2 years now and i still cant crown one over another, but goodnotes is wayt closer to being the king over notability due to the versatility of the app, custom paper, tools, etc, but theres a tool that i use everysingle day, and that it is soooo much better on notability than on goodnotes, and thats the hold to snap / auto shape tool
    I know we already have the snap to other shapes feature, but that is basically useless unlessyoure using lines..
    I would like for you…

  12. While writing after 12-15 page in a note some alphabets are showing problems while writing. Like n,h,r,k cannot write sometimes. All this issue are arising only after 10 or 12th page. If u write in the beginning pages then there no problem arises.
    Please fix this issue. And let me know this bug is in the application or in my device.

  14. Please add a writing section tool to make space in the document, as on OneNote. The Lasso toll takes a little too long

  16. I use Good Notes for reading Newspaper. Sometimes I track my reading speed by counting the words and measuring the time. Also I practice writing essays or answers where I also need a word counter. For school going students it can be a helpful tool for self testing and self examining their own improvement -Reading speed, writing speed etc For Example I can import a question paper and practise writing a test alone. Given that in quarantine days we are doing our school work like this.Or it can also be useful when writing articles or essays for which you need…

  17. Can you put in image scaling for covers? Not the import image function, it's when importing Covers via the Notebook Templates Section.

    Example, I find a free image I like, and download it, but when opening, find that it's square in shape. If I import this to the covers section, it retains it's square shape, and still, when selecting it for a cover image, it converts the size of the page to square to fit it's size.

    What would be great is to be able to import a certain image, and convert it to the NOTEBOOK page size. For example,…

  19. When you select a paper template of any size e.g. A4, letter, etc. by default have the paper fill the screen width so it's not necessary to expand it. I can double-tap the paper template and it fits screen size but having it fit without double-tap would save so much time when you change from portrait to landscape and back again. Thanks. PS Notability has this feature.

  20. In some pdf, the words are well formatted. Therefore, I thought it would be much easier for us to use mouse cursor or trackpad to select the word for copy and paste or translation.
