  1. Add a streamline option for the pen/pencil/marker tools similar to the streamline option in Procreate. That way, those who write in cursive won't have as much trouble with shakiness & therefore there wouldn't be any "jerky" lettering.

  2. I usually keep two notebooks open on my iPad in tabs. I write in thin black on one notebook, and the other notebook I write on an index card template in a thick marker like pen setting. Moving between tabs, it would be nice if a notebook would remember the last pen setting used inside it. I need to switch back and forth quickly, and having to change pen type, color and thickness every single time gets old fast. Thanks for your great product!

  5. Text needs to be improved
    - Bullet points and other text features like tables needed to be added
    - Switching quickly between preset text fonts and sizes
    - Text recognition on pdfs is terrible, some fonts like ones used in some of my text books are hardly searchable
    - Text boxes are annoying, don't mix well with handwriting and do not fit into the lines of the default page

  8. Hello,
    I am using Notability as well as Goodnotes 5..
    I want to emphasize on the point that you should make it possible to insert videos in the notes itself or at least give an option of inserting hyperlinks to youtube or websites.
    It becomes so much easy for us to click the link and open it there itself..
    U need to seriously think on this..

  11. As a professional musician, GoodNotes is almost perfect for viewing and marking up sheet music both during rehearsals and performances! In my circle of friends and colleagues, GoodNotes is really becoming our go-to app! We unanimously agree that the only feature that is missing for viewing sheet music is the ability to view two pages at once (like an open book or in Mac's Preview "double-page viewing"). Is it possible that I'm just not seeing this feature?

    We’re excited to announce that we have completed this feature. It is now available in the update GoodNotes 5.3 for iPadOS (13.1).

    With the update, we added full support for iPadOS’ multiple windows. It lets you do much more than viewing two documents side by side. To read everything you need to know about opening multiple documents, please visit goodnotes.com/ipad-os.

    How to open a new window:

    You can now open GoodNotes in multiple windows to view two documents side by side, view two pages of the same document in Split View, or pair it with other apps in spaces across your entire system. To open a new window, drag any of the elements listed below to the side of your screen:

    - the app icon from the dock
    - documents from the library
    - folders from the library
    - individual pages from the document thumbnail view
    - tabs from the…

  13. I typically need to work on the same document in multiple devices. For example, i may annotate a pdf at home using my iPad but at work I may need to read the annotated pdf in my laptop. Would be great to have full synch using iCloud Dropbox or similar services

  15. Would like to have more options regarding math figures.

    LectureNotes does this very good (see attached image)

    You can create and adjust coordinate systems, grids, dotted patterns, arrows, dotted lines and tables.

  16. It would be really helpful for engineers and engineers to be if the ends of the lines would "lock" onto the corners of each square on squared paper.

    That would make it a lot easier and faster to draw vectors, circuits, functions...

    But only as an option that can be turned on or off easily like the lasso tool for selecting images or handwriting..., otherwise it would get very annoying.

  18. You definitely have to include the Dropbox sync function as realized in goodreader. this would be essential!
    And I'm convinced a bunch of people will be willing to pay more for your app

  19. I wish there was an option for disabling the layering of the highlighter tool, since sometimes we need to colour diagrams or doodles and it gets impossible to do so with the highlighter because you have to do it correctly in only one stroke. If layering could be disabled, the highlighting would all be in one layer, and colouring in multiple strokes would be uniform and not look overlapped and irregular.
