  4. It would be really great if you could add pages to the right, left, top and bottom. At the moment you can only add pages either top and bottom or right and left.

  6. As I do not need the reminder to learn old study sets of the past semester, I would really look forward to establishing the possibility to deactivate study sets with regards to smart learning. Otherwise I always have to delete my studysets to get no notification any more.

  7. When moving texts or images it would be very helpful to have lines that equally space out the text or images like in Canva

  9. 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…

  11. Goodnotes need to be little innovative to help manage time for its users. The readers must have the option to add timer per page. Once activated, the user should have the ability to hide or show the timer with one tap on top right corner of toolbar. This will ensure effective management of time to complete the required work.

    The doc timer tool can enhance effectiveness and therefore help boost confidence in their daily schedule.

    Once timer crosses scheduled limit,
    The user has to bear temporary consequences (any option as selected from following choices in setting)

  13. The history buttons are positioned too close to the Library View button. I usually miss clicked them so instead of going back to my previous edits, I totally LOST them all!

    • Maybe position them to the bottom as shown in the attachment?
    • And/or make the documents preserve their editing history

    Be mindful about handedness though.

  14. It helps to know if you see the number of the Flash Card when in Practice Mode.

    And maybe add a feature, where one can categorise the flash cards when in practice mode. Sure, Uncertain, Don't know. This would help when reviewing a lot of flashcards so that if one only want to study the flash cards in chapter 3 that one can not memorise that well and not spend time on the ones one already knows.

  15. Move the undo location on the toolbar. The undo icon on the toolbar is directly below the library icon in the NAV bar. I always tap the Undo button by mistake when trying to return to the Libray of my Documents. I have lost many final changes when I try to return to the library.

  16. The new numbered and tiered bullets and numbers are a huge step forward. The numbers are just single level while the bullets do differentiate by indent level.

    Please add tiering to distinguish levels.
    Two versions (preferred): 1, a. i. etc. and hierarchical: 1, 1.1, 1.1.1, etc.

    The simple 1 a i approach would help differentiate levels. The Hierarchical will help with technical writing.

  17. It would be great to have an option for a larger canvas. The current tab design is 3 levels. Especially with the new customisable toolbars, if you don’t use page tabs. Everything can fit in one bar, increasing canvas size.

  18. I would like to be able to create a general notebook "template" of PDFs/notes for my students and share a copy with them. Then they have it on their own devices and can edit/write in the notes as we go. Every student would have their own copy of the master notebook, but edit in their own ways.

  19. It would be great to be able to have the opportunity to add indices and exponents to our words/letters/numbers!
