  2. I would like to submit an idea that would greatly improve the organization and special features of the app for IPad users. I was thinking of an option in settings where you can write your “ideal” alphabet (you write each letter in your best handwriting) so that when you are writing your notes it identifies the letter/number and it automatically changes to that ideal handwriting. This can give ones notes and handwriting consistency and an atheistically neat and organized look

  3. It would be helpful if when vertically scrolling through documents it does not move side to side. This is very frustrating when trying to review and highlight numerous documents.

    This usually happens when there is at least one page in the document that either has a different orientation (landscape) or is larger than the pages you’re currently looking at. Please try locating this page and remove it if possible to avoid the problem. We’ll see what we can do to handle page scrolling better in cases like this.

  4. It would be Fine, when it‘s possible to change the colour from the grey Lines in the squared paper in Blue.

  5. Hy guys
    It‘s actually not a feature, but a little detail that was bothering me...
    Every time I tag an important page and skip to the next page using my Apple-Keyboard, the tag continues for all the following pages. Only by swiping with my fingers the tag remains on the important page.
    Could you do something about that?

    Thanks a lot ;)

  6. Currently, in MacOS, you can only select an element if you are on the appropriate tool. Meaning you have to change tools to select an element.

    IpadOS is better a long press gives you the option to zoom or edit - the zoom option seems a little redundant when it's easy to press the zoom button and drag the box. I feel it would be better if it just defaulted to "edit". Maybe this could be a preference option if there are people who use the zoom box a lot.

  7. Like in the other Big Notes App ;-) it would be great to edit the automatic generated forms after they are generated

  8. Saving past edits/versions like Google Drive does.

    Recently, things I wrote in GoodNotes have randomly disappeared, and they would only sometimes reappear. It's fine if they disappear when I know exactly what I wrote, but if it's something I copied from another part of a document or from another document altogether, and it randomly disappears, then it becomes a problem. A possible solution would be the ability to access past versions (like Google Drive) to retrieve what I copied/cut.

  9. Go from 3 to 5 standard pre-set pen weights. I find the jumps between the 3 weights you offer too big and my perfect weight would be between your thinnest and middle one. I suggest to mimic the 5 pen weights Apple offers in the IOS Notes pen integration.

  11. Take a picture with iPhone camera instead of iPad camera.
    For better usability it would be easier to use user's iPhone to take picture and it is a feature I need every day. (Apple notes app has the feature)

  15. So there is an overview feature in safari that allows you to view all open tabs in the app as windows in rows and columns. I find that I have a lot of notes open at once.

    If we could have a similar feature, like a button that gives us an overview of all the notes open, as well as seeing their first page. This would make navigation between open notes much faster and more productive

  16. Use the first handwritten line of a note as the default title.
    No need of typing when creating a new notebook.

  17. Allow the Apple Pencil configurations to include double tapping to switch between the active menu bar and the hidden menu bar. This would quickly allow me to switch between modes when working in a document that has hyperlinks, which require the menu bar to be hidden.
