  2. There should be a way to toggle on and off the different icons we see in our toolbar at the top of GoodNotes. I never use the Text Box Style button and it is extremely inconvenient to have to keep maximizing my page when I want to change the Text Styling Default.

    Please make it so that we can slide across the toolbar when some icons are hidden when viewing in multiple windows.

    Also please add a paint bucket and pixel color picker eyedropper tool!

    It would be so nice to be able to fill something in without having to…

  3. It would be awesome adding some LaTex text recognition so Engineering or science students could be able to take amazing notes. Also increase shape recognition capabilities like Bézier curves. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS APP!!!

  4. I know that the Mac App hasn't been updated recently, and there isn't an app for PCs yet.

    Why not instead make a web app that will allow you to log in through your Apple ID or "GoodNotes code" (something that is generated to all GoodNotes users), so that both Mac and PC users can use it?

  5. It should be allowed to show two pages of the same notebook at the same time instead of only able to show two notebooks side by side. This allows us to read more at a time, or even draw diagrams that can span two pages.

  8. Having the option of changing the whole notebook template with a simple click would be very useful for people who uses a lot of pages with grid template to standardize the writing at first, and wanting to change it to other template for a cleaner look.

  9. Add a paper page as new paper type with the date of today into the default paper type. So you are able to create a new note book with empty pages withe the date of today like a dairy book.

  14. Have an option in the highlighter options section to either be darker in the overlapped areas or not to darken the overlapped areas (consistant shade).

    You will blow Notability out of the water once your upcoming additions are implemented!

    It's already a top 5 app that makes the 12.9" iPad useful. Thanks!

  15. Sometimes to sketch things out letter or DIN A4 are to short, so it would nice to have endless paper (like OneNote). Which you can scale if you need to print it out. Or have something like 4 DIN A4 papers which fit together with tesa strip.

  17. Have the option to add page numbers to the notebook pages. I sometimes need to reference a page of my notebook along with a task form another page or notebook, right now I don't see a way to have page numbers happen automatically when adding or deleting pages from the notebook. Having a link system (so my task says "see notes on page 4" and when I insert a new second page - the note is now on page 5, the text would change "see notes on page 5".)

  19. I often use GoodNotes to revise documents sent to me or scans for textbooks.

    Often I need more space to make notes on the page that I am commenting. It would be great if GoodNotes could grow margins around the imported page giving me plenty of space to write.

  20. I'd love to be able to make the background of diagram images transparent within GoodNotes. I like how this is action performed using an app called MagicEraser, as demonstrated in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pyty9XGv494&feature=youtu.be&t=262

    This feature would be very useful, especially when using dark paper.

    I wish to skip the step of using a different app just to make the background transparent. I constantly need to give my images a transparent background and I really want a faster way to do it. That's why I would love for GoodNotes to have features like those in the MagicEraser app.

    Thank you!
