  1. Let the users select some text and create a linkable symbol attached to the selection. With this, it would be possible to create links to these symbols.
    At the first release, an index could be built from all linkable symbols in the notebook.
    In a second release, it could be possible to create tags for linkable symbols and create index for specific tags (i.e.: #indexEntry, #sourceReference)

  2. GN5 crashes when a corrupt PDF is imported. GN5 should complain about a corrupt file without crashing.

  3. Let’s say I have a page for each category moving vertically I would like the ability to also add pages to add to that category horizontally. And when I’m looking at the whole thing it’s like tiles.

  4. I am using GoodNotes as a teacher to present my lessons. It would be great to have a ‘screen’ that could cover what I have written on a goodnotes page that I could gradually pull down to present the page content as I talk (like smart notes software). Also it would be wonderful if I could I insert live links into my goodnotes page so I can click on it to show a video or math application like Desmos. Are either of these features in the works?

  5. Scaling and rotating selections are very useful for making diagrams, but reflections and scaling only horizontally (or only vertically) are missing.

  13. Please consider the option of a bigger (indefinite?) surface under the working sheet - onto which elements/drawings/ scetches can be moved out for later use or rearrangement.
    Right now when you move something out and its partly outside the paper and not connected - you won’t get it back in.

  14. I would like to be able to select an area of a page and have every non-white pixel change to a color of choice. This would let me change the color of handwritten text.

  15. PDFs should export as "Editable" by default. Its bad design to have "flattened" as the default. The flatten action is destructive.

  17. If I draw a note and then use Handoff to get it onto my Mac and then try and copy it into Pages it always tries to convert it to text. I just want the drawing. There should be two copy modes, one for drawing, one for text.

  18. When I import a pdf with large white margins on the sides it would be great if we could set a specific zoom that would “crop out” the white margins and then lock the horizontal panning when scrolling a bit diagonally - that way the text is bigger on the screen and we don’t have to constantly adjust the text column to be centered. Thanks!

  19. When I paste more text than will fit on a page the text gets cut off. Is there a way to get it all onto one page? Not ability can spread text between as many pages as it takes.

  20. Immediately after I started using the app to take notes in class, I have found myself wanting a contextual menu that can show up around the pencil.

    My idea would be to use the double tap in the Apple Pencil, or a double tap of the Pencil on a note (or another shortcut), that would open a menu around the last position of the Pencil.

    This menu would have color palette, tool options, and tool selection.

    This could allow the user to have the toolbar off or just have a shortcut to the toolbar options.
