Customer Suggestions for GoodNotes

Categories

  1. Every time I select the eraser tool, it defaults to the largest size. So I end up erasing more than I want to, and then have to undo accidental erasures and then set the eraser to smaller size. I should be able to set the smallest eraser as default size to begin with. I love Goodnotes, but erasing is so common, this is getting to be an important usability issue.

  3. When you draw some shapes on top of each other and you would like to align the shapes perfectly, you can't select the shape you draw afterwards. May you can do it better. E.g. you can select all shapes near the area you have tapped with your finger.

  5. When you would like to change the colour of the second colour stack an you are already in the first stack you can't double-tab onto the second coulor stack to change it.
    E.g. you already write in the coulour black in your document. Then you would like to have the colour blue (but you don't have it on the other colour stacks) then you would like to change the colour immediately and you doubletab onto the second coulour stack but this does not work.

  6. As a user, I'd like to be able to share links to specific pages within a notebook rather than the sharing a link to the entire notebook.

  8. Group and ungroup favorite pages in one same document. For example, when you do literature reviews in academic work is always useful to group information related to one concept or research question. It would also be useful to see group favorite pages from different documents that have been label with the same name

  9. It is very annoying to me that the text mark-ups I make to a pdf get auto-formatted (e.g., inserted capitalisation I do not want because the text goes to a new line). If I could turn this feature off easily I would do it in a heartbeat. I type what I want to type, and changing it in front of my eyes is incredibly annoying, particularly as it is hard to edit text boxes in general.

  10. GoodNotes takes several gigabytes (sometimes more than 10 gigs) of RAM on my computer for just 5 documents. These are not fancy documents, just one note with 17 pages, one grayscale textbook PDF around 400 pages, and 3 more notes with about 5 pages each. This definitely should be fixed. This happens when the GoodNotes is running for several days, and seems like GoodNotes will never release acquired RAM, which is something any programmer should have learned in his/her Introduction to Programing course. Chrome, which is famous for its RAM consumption, "only" (I used the word loosely, comparing to GoodNotes…

  11. Sometimes reviewing physics equations and organic chemistry mechanisms can be tiresome.

    I have a suggestion, if possible, design a way for the laser to record your writing. Allow the laser pointer to record how you write your notes so when you replay it and you can watch exactly how you drew your mechanism or how you did your physics problem.

  13. I would really enjoy a standard size for imported pictures from my MacBook. For Example imports could always take up the space of 10 Blocks or so. This would really help, because right now I always have to adjust the picture size manually.

  14. When I try to activate the option "Get shareable link" an error pops up very often saying that the Goodnotes server is too busy, and asks me to retry in a few seconds or minutes. Recently, this error pops up more frequently than before. Can you improve the server that is offering this service please?

    The ability to collaboratively edit a document is very useful, but this problem makes it difficult to exploit it.

  15. Like we are pinning a flash card to a book and we can write on the flash card while we study on the same page, then we can hide the flash card if needed. And whenever needed we can open that flash card by touching at that specific site.

  18. Lernkarten: Es wäre toll, wenn die Lernkarten sowohl -wie schon jetzt- randomisiert; aber bitte unbedingt in der Reihenfolge (der Notizen) abfragbar sind! Da sie so nicht nur als Karteikarten, sondern auch als Lernzettel (thematische Ordnung möglich) fungieren können!!!

  19. While studying the notes, pages should have a turning effect just as in a real notebook. Having only a scroll option makes the experience very animated.
    Currently, some pdf readers like pdfViewer support the turning effect but having it in the same note taking app will make it complete for paper like study and note taking experience.

  20. I suggest to develop a tool to quickly increase or decrease white spaces in between text lines to add or delete content in the middle without manually shifting the lower contents up or down. this is very efficient especially If I have multiple pages. so all content move across the pages seamlessly.
