  2. When writing, I would love the option to duplicate whatever I wrote/drew using the lasso Tool directly (just moving the selected handwriting) like I can do with images. also for some reason it's possible when using split screen but not in the same page. I will attach a video of me duplicating something right away using split screen and then how it's possible to do with the same page ( it takes longer and not as efficient) I will be talking to explain further. thank you

  5. I've been using GoodNotes 5 since it had been launched. I found that my handwriting was not as good as in Notability. The ink in GoodNotes 5 seems to lag. I feel like it tries to bend my stroke all the time and I'm quite annoying this. I've tried to set the pressure sensitivity to low, medium and high, however, it stills bending everytime. So I have to write slower in order to make a beautiful handwriting and sometimes it wastes a lot of time!

    Ps. I've used GoodNotes 4 before too. The GoodNotes 4 doesn't have this problem.

  7. Dear GoodNotes team, unfortunately I activated the automatic backup function once and only created the PDFs. Re-creating the backup (now with the GoodNotes files) is unfortunately not possible - unfortunately I have a lot of documents and so would have to "touch" each one again to update!? Is there a solution? If not my suggestion would be to be able to start the "Autobackup" manually!
    Many thanks
    Tom

  8. Instead of having to scroll through different tabs for notes when several of them are open, they should condense and all stay on the screen for easier access (similar to how google chrome tabs do)

  9. I really miss the feature that many other pdf viewers (and browsers, eg safari) have, where one presses and holds the scrolling button to move it up/down to a desired page.

  13. After I export a pdf document to another app and then import another file to GoodNotes, the screen is just dimmed as if it would give me the option to select an import location.

    For example, i would export my science homework file to an app. Then, I would import another homework file into GoodNotes while the export option is still open and it goes dim.

  18. Please fix “keyboard shorcuts” while in text mode. Goodnotes for some weird reason only makes you select a letter to switch between tools instead of “ command and the letter. So when trying to type on a external keyboard i cant type a P,E,H,S,L,I,C,or T with out it completely switching tools and existing out of typing mode. I feel like this is pretty big oversite and is unfortunately the only reason i have to us notability over good notes when typing at times. I can understand if this is a mac feature but as far as an ipad goes its…
