  1. Make it possible to make a straight line between two or more points. Would be great to draw graphs with. Also would be nice to have the ability to make a dotted line, maybe choose space between the dots and so on.

  2. Currently all folders appear as blue. It would be great to organise folders with different colours (e.g biology- green and maths - red)

  5. I use Goodnotes for all my Uni lectures, and I have to hand draw massive tables for reducing finite state machines in discrete mathematics. If there was a table wizard that would be awesome!

  8. When you take notes, it is usefull that you would like to add a date. This feature would allow by simply click to add the current date or dropdown to access calendar.

  10. The Apple notes app and some Adobe apps recognize the angle in which the Apple pencil is lead over the surface of the iPad and changes the stroke width depending on that angle,
    Furthermore the ruler feature of Apple notes would be helpful to aim at a certain point drawing lines. Especially drawing graphs would be easier in this way.

  11. To be able to organise pages into sub folders 'within' each notebook would be very useful.

    In GoodNotes 5 we implemented the option to create infinite subfolders to replace the concept of “categories” in GoodNotes 4. Consider using multiple documents in a subfolders instead of adding everything to one notebook. If you want to further divide your notebook internally, you can use bookmarks or custom outlines to label your pages.

  12. In the tool bar there are only 3 available colours to select from
    Adding more colours to the toolbar would make more efficient and fluent writing

  13. On OneNote I have 14 different colored pens and highlighters up top. GoodNotes is superior to one note in almost every way except this one. I color code my notes, so I am forced to used one note. If I were to try and color code using goodnotes, it would take me hours longer because there are so many extra clicks to get to the correct color of pen or highlighter. Having more color options up top and allowing both pens and highlighters in the menu bar like one note would be amazing.

    There is plenty of room up there,…

  15. Allow users to put comments on different layers. It would be helpful if these could be turned on/ off, or have their transparency % adjusted like in the Photoshop Touch application. Selecting annotations on one layer only or locking others would be useful as well.

  17. Often the pdf documents have ~1" margins and there have been paragraphs that I would either like to add my own commentary, create a small sketch of an idea, or note an idea related to the material. The margins aren't big enough to fit, but adding a whole blank notes page is too large (I use an iPad Pro).

    I request a feature for having a color indicated "sticky note" that fits on either side of the margins and can be placed anywhere alongside it. Tap the little box, and the expanded note comes into view with various options for…

  19. If there could be a tray where I can add 4-5 various colors of pens and highlighter mimicking a real physical object that I can just pickup and write. For example, I could add a red colored pen with fine thickness, a black colored pen with bold thickness, yellow highlighter pen with certain thickness and automatic straight line.

    In that way I can jump between each tools and options without having to turn on/off auto-straight-line function or adjust the thickness every time I change a writing tool.

    You can let this function to be optional that users can toggle on/off…
