  2. When 'Mirror Presenter Page' or 'Mirror Full Page' is active, it would be useful to be able to progressively reveal elements.

    I imagine this would be grouped with the laser pointer tool and when selected would dim or reduce the opacity of all elements on the page in the device view but hide them on the external display. The tool would then function like the inverse of the eraser (stroke, standard or precision, different pen sizes) to reveal the elements. Selecting another tool would reveal all elements again (no saved state) and selecting another page while the reveal tool is…

  3. Goodnotes should add more shortcuts for Macbook users. For example to hide or show sidebar, or to transfer from reading type to annotation type.

  4. Problem: I’m used to write down a few sentences as P.S. on original pdf files. When I export the edited file as pdf its size increases ~ 800%.

    Solution: Algorithm optimization for compression for simple editing on already original files.

  5. Problem: sending pdf files to GoodNotes via e-mail the home screen is updated with new files and pdf extension is added to the file’s name, what it turns out to be MyFileName.pdf.pdf when the edited pdf file is exported.

    Solution: Adding a favicon to the top left indicating it’s a pdf file and removing the .pdf from file’s name itself.

  6. When studying flashcards on iOS, the card is severely minimized to the point where the text can’t be read. Not all people use flashcards for single words or short texts. It’d be better for the whole question portion to be maximized in full screen when studying the flashcards in landscape mode, then have the answer show up in fullscreen next.

  8. Es wäre hilfreich, wenn beim durchgehen der Lernkarten auch der Fortschritt angezeigt und gespeichert wird, wenn nicht alle Karten durchgegangen werden, oder zu einem späteren Zeitpunkt weiter gelernt wird. Außerdem wäre es toll, wenn man den Fortschritt separat abrufen könnte.

  9. Quickly toggle this mode on, GoodNotes will ONLY respond to your stylus. This means absolutely zero accidental tab closes and switches, tool selections, anything that could happen from resting one's palm near the top of the page. For completely relaxed, unworried writing in any position.

  10. Can you do a highlighter tool that UNDERLINES the text instead of highlighting?

    I would help in productivity so much rather than have to hold and wait for it to form a straight line.

    Thanks

  11. On my Mac, when I double click the mouse pointer on a word to select it, GoodNotes responds by increasing the zoom level of the note -- the word is not selected. When I double click again on the word, GoodNotes responds by unzooming. In every other app, I can select a word by double clicking on it -- this is my preferred app response since it is what is expected throughout all of computing. I would appreciate it if GoodNotes behaved the same way -- select, not zoom. Thank you.

  12. I was trying out ZoomNotes after discovering adding to a note on my phone is kind of terrible in GoodNotes, and they had a handy shortcut that would help a lot in GoodNotes: When placing a text box, double tapping prompted whether I wanted the box to fill the page. I agreed and just that easy I can add properly (horizontally) aligned text to the note. GoodNotes could add a similar feature pretty easily and it would make the iPhone and Mac apps more useful for adding to notes.

  13. will be widely used for mathematical equations

    the left side will be what I write, the write side will be what it will transform into. this can be also used for irregular shape or time consuming shapes to draw but is used often.

  14. I want to create a new Quick Note and then when finished move it (all pages) to a Notebook. At present I can tap the File name and it only allows me to move to a Folder. The only viable option is to use the page picker, select all pages and then I can move to a Notebook - lots of taps

  17. Would love to be able to add a few blank pages so that while taking note we can just continue writing instead of having to pull vertical/horizontal to create a new page. Sometimes I have to sit before class and create the number of pages I estimate I’ll need in order to have the space.

  18. Eraser should be able to erase text as well. When I want to erase a text I have to lasso and click delete or I have to edit the text. It would be nice to use the eraser to erase some parts of the text you want without having to delete or edit the whole thing

  19. It would be practical to be able to select which files you would like to upload to iCloud, as, if you don‘t have enough storage for every single file, you can‘t even share a single file with anyone, which is quite annoying.

  20. Ipad用戶,以前在不使用編輯工具時也可選取文字。更新後要在使用編輯工具下才能選取文檔的文字,操作變得極不方便且不能用apple pencil選取文字!建議改回原來版本!
