  3. As automatic backup or icloud sync copy directly of the modification into the backup, it could be useful to have a backup option to allow different backups in time. So that if an error is made (file deletion, bad document modifications), it can be possible ot restore from an old backup.

    Ideally like timemachine for apple or more basically different backups with the delta of modification.

    Thank you for your great job!

  4. There is often the need to change the colour of a handwritten note or a marker sign through the lasso/lazo instrument, but we can’t choose between our personally customized colours: instead there are only a few default ones, that never match the ones that we have been using for the rest of the document.
    It would be very handy of you add this functionality to the said instrument.

  5. Currently, you can only see notes by opening one folder at a time. How about the ability to see “ALL” items that are in every folder. If you take notes all day and you file these notes in separate folders throughout the day, there’s no way to see every note your wrote in the day without opening every folder. If you have an “ALL” option, you will see every note you’ve ever written - no matter what folder they exist in.

  6. I do understand that it makes sense for the document to pop back into central view when dragging to the side, but when handwriting at the document’s edge, this becomes an annoyance.

    How about a new action/feature where the documents still pop back into central view under normal circumstances, but when the user really drags the document far off to the side, the document stays there at the side of the screen. Now the user can handwrite comfortably, with his hand resting on the black part (background) of the screen, and the document on the other side of the screen.…

  8. Respected Sir/Maam,
    I’ve been using Goodnotes 5 lately and I find it really useful, although there is something you could work on for easy accessibility across distant pages of a pdf file of lets say a medical textbook that has thousands of pages.

    You have provided a ‘Go To’ option but at times the exact page number is not known to us and this makes searching for that particular page quite cumbersome. It would be really helpful to us if you could allow an option that can allow us to fast flip across pages...quite the same as present in Adobe…

  10. As my notes expand to hundreds of pages, I think that having a reverse page view would be helpful to find the latest note without scrolling much.

  11. Line styles can give more meaning to charts and graphs and are so important to note taking I find it so strange that they are not available yet. It's a very basic yet very important feature.

  12. The use I meant to do with the iPad is a sort of infinite whiteboard. And I use to draw diagrams and mathematical notation.
    Would I be able to use the Lasso tool for exporting formulas to something editable in text, like LaTeX? Maybe with a huge community of students and researchers currently using Goodnotes that may be interested to that.

  15. Allow the user to see the final writing magnification dynamically as the Mag box size is being changed, so that they can choose a consistent size.

  16. In a pdf, it's hard to markup boxes for writing without guidelines. Being able to pull out guidelines like in Photoshop would make it a breeze to write straight and bring out as many guidelines which would never ever print, and they would not interfere because they are dotted and very light. Especially both vertical and horizontal guidelines would be great, because on PDFs, you can't easily change the paper for the whole document.

  17. Sometimes I want to copy worlds out for googling or something like that. To get a better workflow with Goodnotes 5 for Mac it wood be nice to have a common mouse cursor in the toolbar. Than you can mark worlds or sentences and copy them out.

  19. Çok sayfadan oluşan dokümanlar için çerçeveler özelliğini kullanıyoruz. Ancak çerçeveler ile bir sayfaya gittikten sonra, tekrar başka bir sayfaya gitmek için çerçeveler sekmesini açtığımızda, çerçeveler in en başı çıkıyor ve tekrar aşağı inmek zorunda kalıyoruz. Mesela cevap anahtarı olan bir soru bankasında soru çözerken, soru sayfası ile sondaki cevap anahtarı arasında git gel yapmak zorlaşıyor. Bence çerçeveler sayfası açıldığında kullanılan sayfa en ortada olacak şekilde açılmalı. En baş sayfa en üstte olmamalı.
