  1. I take notes for grad school using your app. You have categories. But within those categories I want to be able to organize into sub categories based on the modules that are being covered

  2. Every time i come to scroll my notebooks on my iphone, i end up writing on my notes instead. I wish the experience of browsing my notes on my iphone were more user friendly.

  3. Two dots on the dotted paper templates are a little over 1.1 cm apart on the ruler. It would be great for drawing graphs if they are 1 cm apart, so the templates fit the ruler. The same issue applies to the squared paper.

  5. Add a zoom bar, just like WORD and DOCS. I know we can zoom in and zoom out freely, and that's good, but i wanted a pre-defined zoom bar, with 100%, 125%, 150% and so it goes, and also a tool where i can add which zoom percentage i want. I feel like, when i zoom, it's never the same zoom i used before.
    And i do know about the zoom-page-thingy, but it's not exactaly what i wanted, because we can't use it in the entire document, it's just a window.

  7. When you underline some text, you have to switch quickly of colour: it will bee great to have the possibility to use a command/tab shortcut to pass from one favorite colour to another...

  8. Please add an update or feature where you can continuously draw from one page to another. It would be helpful for students to connect ideas from one page to another.

  10. Dear GoodNotes developer,

    I am a loyal user of your app and I appreciate the features and functionalities that it offers. However, I have one suggestion that I believe would make your app more accessible and user-friendly for a large segment of potential customers: adding Arabic language support.

    Arabic is one of the most widely spoken languages in the world, with over 400 million native speakers and many more who learn it as a second or third language. It is also a rich and beautiful language with a unique script and writing system. However, many apps, including GoodNotes, do not…

  11. One of the biggest drawbacks of the app is that my notebooks and folders are only able to be sorted alphabetically, by type, or by when I used them. This makes for a very unintuitive interface, as the order of documents often makes no sense. I think it would be relatively easy to add the option to just drag and drop folders/notebooks the way you would move apps on a home screen.

  12. Could you guys make it a sort of greyscale effect when given the Night Mode option. Auto Converts any uploaded pdf into dark mode when using in the app, and converts black to white and vice versa. This would be especially useful when revising at night in a medium lit environment. I gave a little idea in the picture. Hopefully would give some idea.

  14. I’d like for there to be a way to “tag” cards within individual study sets a variety of colors. For example, if I have cards related to biology, I can tag them “green” and cards related to math can be “red”. When I go to study all of my cards, I want to be able to customize how many of each “tag” I want in my study session. For example, maybe I want to have a study session that’s mostly Biology with some Math as well. I would customize that I want 15 “green” cards and 5 “red” cards in…

  15. Add a button in the Bar at the top, similar to the pen layout. There is tons of empty space and the only button gives a short explanation on how to use it. There could easily be a button to convert to text, math, copy, paste, etc. Instead you have to click through the menu that pops up by holding with your finger, requiring you to drop the pen etc. This would improve workflow and is an easy implementation. Seems like forgoten feature.

  16. Drag is very weird and hard to move around. Also, when I logged back in, all the colors disappeared, so I had to re-enter a new color again, which was very cumbersome. Page loading time is very slow and sometimes it erase some parts of my writing.
    Lastly, when typing, words are omitted due to buffering or the same words come out continuously, making it inconvenient to take notes.
    Why is it still different from IOS? As I know, it's been almost half a year since the Android version was released, but there are no additional functions like the IOS…

  19. Hey, since I am an student I often use tables to organize myself etc.. I always have to draw the tables with my pencil, while others, that use OneNote etc. can easily add a table, which I would really love in your app. If you added that feature the app would be nearly perfect. Thanks for the support. Max.
