  2. I have two different App Store accounts! I got a new IPad and had no idea I was using a separate account from my phone. How can I switch between accounts within the app to access everything I have on my iPad when I am using my phone?

  3. Not a suggestion, but complaint. Unable to set a file name to exclude from the auto-backup. I can't click on the section, and there is no where for me to set a file name to exclude.

  4. Hello,
    I am a great user of the app, using it to design furnitures and on measure wood work. Good notes is so fine but two major improvement should be released on the next update :
    I am writing my notes in French and in English. For this I need to create two documents. If you could create a « layer » option, I could simply choose the language I need to export in the same document. The top of the top would be layers even for the draws themselves. I could take a picture of client interior and put…

  5. I was wondering if you can add a feature?

    I would love it if you could make it that you can scroll the page you are working on up the screen further than just to the bottom of the screen. What I mean by this is rather than have the bottom of the page you are writing on stay at the bottom of the screen, it would be great if you could actually scroll the page up so the bottom of the page you are writing on is actually half way up the screen so you can still rest your…

  6. I’m a new user, so this might be a clarification request rather than a feature request, but I’m doing something that makes the tool switch randomly from pen to eraser. Is there a setting somewhere I can change to make it stop doing this? If I want the eraser I’ll pick the eraser.

  7. It would be so awsome for the autobackup feature to have an option to backup all docs to pdf but without the background template. i know it can be tricky if you wrote on a black template with white ink, but for all people using templates just as a guide to keep sentences straight and a yellowish paper colour to avoid eye strain it would be the best feature ever

  8. Folder names/titles are fairly small and there is not an option to make them larger. Please make this available. Thank you!

  9. Can you add a “merge” or “group” lines feature? It would make drawing shapes and ideas a whole lot easier. Similar to being able to group multiple lines or images on PowerPoint or google docs.

  11. My idea includes doing the already available functions but correctly. If you can’t like just give me a refund.

  12. I believe that you all should do an X-ray feature like kindle does that allows you to view only the highlighted portions of your document. This will allow a more condensed view of the things that you deemed most important in the document. This would be so helpful with students as it would allow them a much quicker way to create summary sheets of lectures by distilling only the things that they highlighted ie. what they found most important.

  16. When moving things around using the lasso tool in large documents I often experience that some text just randomly disappears. Sometimes it can be entire pages and it is very frustrating as a student when you just finished a page of an assignment and suddenly it is gone. If I restart the document then the text is back. Also I experience a lot of lagging when in a large document. I think these two things have to be fixed because I find GoodNotes the best note taking app on the market except for this rather disturbing error.

  17. It is getting tedious for me to switch between 6 commonly used colours with a 3-slot palette when there is clearly space on the app interface to accommodate all 6 of them.

  18. For adjusting what should be selected with the lasso tool you always have to open a dropdown menu. This could be done with the property menu on the right. That would be faster and you would see directly, what the lasso tool is going to select before using it.

  19. I would like a quick access to the eraser. Instead of selecting the eraser in the menu bar I would for example love if you could change to the erase with a simple click or gesture on you screen. Maybe a quick double tap with your pencil
