    Thanks for submitting your feedback. We’ll consider it for future updates. In the meantime, you can select the exact pages you want to export in the thumbnail view and deselect the “concept” pages.

  2. There are two small improvements for UX.

    1. When a user exports some of his/her pages, he/she goes into the grid view, selects a few pages, presses "export" and share it, then presses "Done" and "Close" to continue working. It is worth noting that, "Done" is on the top right corner of the window, yet "Close" is on the top left, with "Select" on the right. That means, if he/she doesn't look carefully or press "Done" twice, he/she will again enter the selection mode, rather than quickly returning to work. (See video1). This could be confusing.
      I suggest rearranging the…

  4. It is very troublesome for me to change my typeface,colour and text size。So I think it is necessary to set three buttons and I can set different text configuration and change it when I press these buttons。

  6. I’ve been using notesplus and it has the option of drawing a circle instead of going to the toolbar to select the laso/lazo. If there’s no intention of moving the content rounded, it automatically becomes the circle you have drawn.

  8. App is almost perfect! Would love the ability to choose which functions appear in the phone version due to the limited real estate... like pen, shape & camera all next to each other... thanks!

  9. Sehr geehrtes GoodNotes-Team,
    Erstmal ein Riesen großes Dankeschön- mir als Medizinstudentin erleichtert Ihre App auf meinem IpadPro 12.9 (Version 2020) wirklich das Leben !
    Eine ganz große Bitte habe ich allerdings an Sie. Es wäre wirklich sehr sehr viel effizienter und übersichtlicher für mich als Nutzerin, wenn es möglich wäre PDF-Dateien so zu importieren, dass mehrere Seiten auf einer Seite zu sehen sind. Wenn ich alles nur als eine Seite in GoodNotes importiere ist das sehr schnell sehr unübersichtlich und außerdem weniger praktisch bezüglich der Zeichentools!
    Leider muss ich derzeit jede Vorlesung erst auf meinem Computer mit dem Print-to-PDF-Tool vorbereiten,…

  11. The BOOK of PDF version has cover and table of contents, which will lead to the inconsistency between the page number displayed in the software in the bottom right corner and the page number in the book catalog, which will cause great inconvenience to turn the book, so there should be the function of custom page number to customize the first page

  12. Could you please add a search function into the trash area so we can search trashed notebooks - we search using job numbers so this would be very handy in this area as well.

  14. A way where one could zoom out of the pages, so you could see all of your pages in that file. Like in Word/Pages.

  15. Could we have a mode that defaults to simple shapes for the shape tool? My handwriting is terrible... but if I draw something that remotely looks like a rectangle, I want it to be a rectangle, not some other weird shape.

    So maybe only allow circles, squares, rectangles, triangles? Something along these lines...

  16. I import PDFs that are ADA compliant; but when they get exported out of Good Notes, they have lost all compatibility. Is there a way to preserve the incoming structure, and to include handwriting recognition to make the documents ADA compliant?

    Could you please add more specifics which capabilities are needed exactly to be ADA compliant? We are not experts in this field. Please note that there are two different PDF data formats you can chose from in the export options. Flattened and Editable. Flattened will preserve the option to search for handwritten notes.

  18. The quality of imported images is really really bad! I can‘t read it sometimes or annotate anything because it has so many pixels.

  19. The written area, for example, can be resized (e.g. text field previously over the whole page, afterwards only on the left side). That would make it possible to write or take notes next to the previous text field without having to move the sentence parts individually so that there would be some space to take notes again.

  20. When you open a notebook pages are initially displayed in full height. First thing you have to do is double tap to make the app use the available space of the display. I use A4 paper format, not GoodNotes standard.
