Customer Suggestions for GoodNotes

Categories

  1. I want to paste a url and have the rendered html as a document.
    Now I have to do it the other way: from safari I can open in GoodNotes (doesn’t work well) or Markup. Then export to goodnotes. This works well but I have to click about 12 buttons along the way, which is frustrating.

  6. Remove the banner on top after undo, as ist distracts while working, without any benefit. As soon as I undo, I notice the change in the content anyways.

  7. Thank you for developing such an useful app! I use goodnotes to take notes for my lecture. I write on my books or ppts and sometimes I want to add same-size template but with plain background so that it look like a continous work. So, I manually add present template and then add plain white image.

    Can you please add an extra fuction such as adding same-size template with plain white background??

  8. Some of these ideas may have been mentioned before, and maybe they haven’t, but these are some features I would like to see.

    Sending things forward or backward. Or picture layering.

    Being able to select handwriting, photos or text boxes and being able to bring it forward or backward so they can layer. It would be super useful for those who digital planner journals or scrapbook.

    This one I know has been said, but voice recording.

    The ability to convert text directly, rather than a cop and then have to paste, while proceeding to delete the original handwritten text.

  9. I’m a maths teacher and would like to see a wide variety of shapes that can be easily drawn, than having to draw it line by line. The inclusion of 2D and 3D number planes would also be great.

  10. Since I am using Apple Pencil, switching the pen to eraser need to click on the eraser icon on the tab.
    I suggest that there is a floating eraser icon on the screen, so I can drag that icon to my left hand side( I am right hand user). When I need to erase something, I can just tap the floating eraser icon using my left hand. Then it will be more efficient to user who are using Apple Pencil.
    This idea might be useful to other pen functions too.

  11. I think that apple’s File app has some bugs, so every time I upload a file to my google drive from PC, I cannot see that file via import button.
    Looks like it didn’t sync well on the File app.
    In my opinion, GoodNotes should request user permission directly to access the file from google drive.

  12. 開發者您好:

    我是貴產品的愛用者。感謝貴公司創造這樣好的產品,嚷我可以在生活上以及工作上,有效率又可以輕鬆地生活。
    有一點使用上的建議,也許不容易做到,但是,還是以一個使用者角度與需求,向貴公司提出建議。
    我是在居住在台灣的使用者,但是,中文的使用環境上,是繁體中文的。但是,生活或工作上,都會有很多機會是使用簡體中文,如果在軟體中內建簡體字轉換繁體字的功能,這會讓我在使用得到更好的體驗。word的軟體上有這樣的功能,我知道在PDF的檔案上,也許需要很大的工程,但是,我還是提出我以上的建議與需求。希望有一天可以達到這樣的效果,
    感謝您的聆聽

    陳翰璋
    敬上

  13. I would love to see the ability to save custom colors for fonts. I love the fact I can personalize the colors for pens but my handwriting is messy and I like to type certain things when making note pages.

  14. Simply make goodnotes snappier when opening folders and files, add little animations — for the selecting tool, for example.

    Goodnotes feels a bit “heavier” than Notability on this part, in my opinion

  15. When importing a new paper template being and you are writing in the zoom text field and click enter the whole box jumps down the whole box length. So being able to select where it jumps to when pressing enter and it so it can for example jump to the next line like with the pre-installed GoodNotes templates would be very good

  17. It would be good to be able to edit and save the convert to text function so when you're searching for specific prompts later and the convert to text did not work correctly automatically you could still find words later on.

  18. I don't know why, but the GoodNotes app sits inside a GoodNotes folder in the Applications folder. That intermediate folder isn't necessary. Just put the App in the Applications folder.

  19. It doesn't always let me switch color when typing. If I switch to a different color in text mode, it always switches back to the previous color I used. Please fix this!!!

  20. Hi, I hope you can make a feature so that I can edit the a specific bookmark and change the page number without having to delete it.

    For example, when I use Foxit Reader (a PDF reader software), I can set bookmark at page 10, Then jump to page 30, and then 'Set this a new destination'. So that I have changed the page number of the bookmark
