  4. It would be great if you could snap the end points of lines and corners of polygons to grid points especially when using graph paper. This would only be on when shape recognition was enabled. The grid should be programmable, but should default to the drawn grid on the graph paper.

  8. The ability to toggle on and off dark mode and have the paper and ink colors change accordingly.

    Selecting dark paper and white ink looks great but is NOT 'dark mode'. When you go to print something created way you either waste a LOT of ink or you have to manually switch paper and ink color on each page.

    For reference - Onenote does dark mode perfectly.

  9. In computer science I draw a lot of diagrams of nodes or trees. I spend a lot of time drawing directional arrows neatly. I think it would be awesome if there was a line option that will automatically add an arrow head to my curve or line, and allow me to adjust the curvature of the line if needed. Thanks for listening.

  10. Non overlapping highlighter! Or the ability to change the opacity on the highlighter! I use goodnotes for drawing and coloring is soooo difficult right now because you can’t lift your pen up or it will overlap the color :(

  11. When copying and pasting with the Lasso tool, we are given the option to resize and rotate, but we are NOT given the option to mirror the image, that is, reflecting it with respect to the vertical axis. That would be a useful improvement, in my opinion.

    For example, to draw a face it would be enough to draw the right eye, half a nose and half a mouth, then mirror it.

  16. Goodnotes for linux :
    why this is a good idea and takes less time to implement compared to windows: since mac os is unix based it should be easy enough to release a linux version. it will benefit computer science, electrical and others( who need linux) students and professionals who need to run linux (start with an ubuntu version) on their computers.

    It will especially help programmers to trouble-shoot code as thought its done on paper-using an ipad using icloud or google drive

  17. I would love to be able to password protect folders that need to be kept private. I keep all my private information in folders so even if only the folders could be password or passcode protected it would be very helpful

  18. When an Image is selected you get 8 handles to resize the image. The handles at the 4 corners resize the Image keeping the aspect ratio. That is expected behavior. But the handles at the edges should resize the width or the height of an image.
    It is currently not possible to insert a white image and resize it to mask a part of a page (classroom).

  19. I use GoodNotes to store my e-textbook PDFs and use it to study. But it’s really troubling to me that i need to use the split view in order to view two separate pages. It’s very difficult and disturbing to use spilt view (which when I want to turn to a page, I need to do the same gesture twice, once left and once right. And every time i want to turn to the next page, I need to swipe twice on each of the separated screens.) when what i need is like reading a book in two pages and…
