  3. It would be nice to be able to realign the button options on the bottom of the page. For example, “favorites” is currently to the far right which I use often, and “share” is closer to the middle which I never use.

  4. If we are in a document, that’s not yet marked as a favorite, it would be great to be able to “favorite” the ENTIRE document from there, not just the page were are in.

  5. Good Notes 5 doesn’t allow you to select all bookmarked pages in Favorites and trash them. See attached video. You can trash all but one page. Otherwise you get a pop-up warning message.

    Please provide a Select All button and allow a quick way to Trash all
    bookmarked pages.

  7. Once starting GoodNotes, it'd be nice to have the last document you worked on opened instead of starting from the folder selection screen every time. I have to click through multiple folders just to get to the same file.

    On OneNote, the resume feature automatically puts me back into the last opened Notebook + section + filed so I can get to work right away.

  8. Hi, working on PDFs with GoodNotes for Mac,
    the idea is to create a pinching cursor to drag/navigate/move on a PDF (maps for exemple).
    That would be much easier that using the scrolling/swipping (shift key) wheel of the mouse.
    Inviting you to check the attached pdf to get the idea. Hope to see this feature soonly. Thanking you by advance.

  9. first idea:
    One may think. The share of the target group that uses KEYBOARD shortcuts most probably uses also text boxes (are terrible due to lack of formatink like notability but that idea is already in the top listing her). But when you are „in a textbook“ you cannot hit shortcuts nor can you tab out of a text. Why not make „ESC“ let the textbook unselect or press ⌘ to force other shortcuts. sometime i will change text box mode to pen mode but the short cut does not work. I have to tap with the finger out of…

  10. Zoom window can be resized and dragged anywhere in the screen like putting it on the left side on landscape mode or just putting it on 1/4 of the screen

  14. I appreciate that GoodNotes is constantly syncing to my iCloud account and that feature works great. However, on my MacBook Pro, it is frustrating when the program opens on my screen and interrupts my current activities. Is there a way to have the background sync on the Mac function as it does, while keeping the program minimized in the background? Thx

  15. In my iPhone 8, a button to close the font menu is covered with a status icons on top of my iPhone, and it is incapable.
    I'm sorry just to use it with a very convenient app.
    Could you correct it?

  17. Ich habe 4 Applegeräte, iMac, 2 IPads und ein IPhone. Wenn ich Lernkarten auf meinem iMac erstelle, sehe ich sie auch auf den anderen Geräten. Das ist o. K.
    Aber: Wenn ich auf einem der Geräte angefangen habe zu lernen, kann ich nicht auf einem anderen weitermachen.
    Beispiel: Ich trainiere zu Hause auf dem Mac, möchte aber unterwegs auf dem iPhone weitermachen - aber das geht leider nicht.
    Kompatibilität ist mein Vorschlag.
    Mit freundlichen Grüßen
    Olaf

  18. Sometimes when I read and take notes on lecture PowerPoint pdf on GoodNotes, I feel like the pages display are too big (I used an iPad Pro) esp when the content on the slides is not very compact. So I wonder if it’s possible to set how the pdf to be displayed, like for horizontal it can be set to 2x2, 3x2. Or for vertical, it can be set to 2x4, 2x6, or even 3x4 etc instead? To be able to view more pages at a glimpse like the outlines and also able to actually read the content would be…
