  1. I saw this interesting article and it would be really cool if you could add to good notes or emulate it having a floating pallet.

  2. I am a Maths teacher from Vietnam. I love technology. About 2 years ago, I came across your Goodnotes application, which was the number one paid application in AppStore and I felt lucky that I bought it. I got excited and engrossed in your app at the very first time I used it. I work with Mathematics problems very frequently. When using Goodnotes, the problems become much easier and more intriguing. I learned a lot from these and thanks to it, my students got many prizes in local competitions. I wrote a “long essay” to you in the reviews section…

  3. The inclusion of hyperlinks or jumps in one text to another, or other texts included in the same notebook or in a different one, makes it possible to work with live texts and therefore subject to evolution, correction or expansion, ultimately subject to continuous changes.

  5. Replace the current option menu with the iOS 13 context menu (long tap) for files in file list. This would provide a better user experience on both iOS and macOS since context menus are used a lot. Also I think that having to tap on the title is not really convenient.

    (Sorry for the screenshot in french)

  6. 工具栏面积占比太高了,浪费屏幕显示区域,关闭了状态栏显示都还是觉得工具栏占位置过多,影响阅读及书写体验。小小建议:把工具栏缩减为一行,或者在不减少工具选项的情况下把工具栏做窄一点,个人认为没必要做得那么宽。希望能改进一下下。

  7. On MacBooks, iMacs, Mac Pros (etc...) there's a lot more room than on an iPad.
    I'm thinking about page thumbnails, about how many pages are shown on a single screen (and how much space rests unutilized on the left and on the right of the note).
    Please make the Mac app "Mac friendlier"!

  8. More templates that are dark: easier on eyes and battery. A true black, a blue print blue.

  10. A function for setting the size on screen to be equal to the size on printout (like on Preview app in macOS). This would ensure that the size of the text/diagram on the screen can be reflected on a 1:1 scale to how it would look like when it is printed out. Such a function will give users a greater sense of context when using the app, especially if the exported note has to be printed.

    For example, in the screenshot below, the width of the PDF open on the computer is equal to the width of an A4 paper…

  11. I want to paste a url and have the rendered html as a document.
    Now I have to do it the other way: from safari I can open in GoodNotes (doesn’t work well) or Markup. Then export to goodnotes. This works well but I have to click about 12 buttons along the way, which is frustrating.

  15. Remove the banner on top after undo, as ist distracts while working, without any benefit. As soon as I undo, I notice the change in the content anyways.

  16. Thank you for developing such an useful app! I use goodnotes to take notes for my lecture. I write on my books or ppts and sometimes I want to add same-size template but with plain background so that it look like a continous work. So, I manually add present template and then add plain white image.

    Can you please add an extra fuction such as adding same-size template with plain white background??

  17. I’m a maths teacher and would like to see a wide variety of shapes that can be easily drawn, than having to draw it line by line. The inclusion of 2D and 3D number planes would also be great.

  18. Since I am using Apple Pencil, switching the pen to eraser need to click on the eraser icon on the tab.
    I suggest that there is a floating eraser icon on the screen, so I can drag that icon to my left hand side( I am right hand user). When I need to erase something, I can just tap the floating eraser icon using my left hand. Then it will be more efficient to user who are using Apple Pencil.
    This idea might be useful to other pen functions too.

  19. I think that apple’s File app has some bugs, so every time I upload a file to my google drive from PC, I cannot see that file via import button.
    Looks like it didn’t sync well on the File app.
    In my opinion, GoodNotes should request user permission directly to access the file from google drive.

  20. 開發者您好:

    我是貴產品的愛用者。感謝貴公司創造這樣好的產品,嚷我可以在生活上以及工作上,有效率又可以輕鬆地生活。
    有一點使用上的建議,也許不容易做到,但是,還是以一個使用者角度與需求,向貴公司提出建議。
    我是在居住在台灣的使用者,但是,中文的使用環境上,是繁體中文的。但是,生活或工作上,都會有很多機會是使用簡體中文,如果在軟體中內建簡體字轉換繁體字的功能,這會讓我在使用得到更好的體驗。word的軟體上有這樣的功能,我知道在PDF的檔案上,也許需要很大的工程,但是,我還是提出我以上的建議與需求。希望有一天可以達到這樣的效果,
    感謝您的聆聽

    陳翰璋
    敬上
