  1. Currently, in MacOS, you can only select an element if you are on the appropriate tool. Meaning you have to change tools to select an element.

    IpadOS is better a long press gives you the option to zoom or edit - the zoom option seems a little redundant when it's easy to press the zoom button and drag the box. I feel it would be better if it just defaulted to "edit". Maybe this could be a preference option if there are people who use the zoom box a lot.

  2. Like in the other Big Notes App ;-) it would be great to edit the automatic generated forms after they are generated

  3. Go from 3 to 5 standard pre-set pen weights. I find the jumps between the 3 weights you offer too big and my perfect weight would be between your thinnest and middle one. I suggest to mimic the 5 pen weights Apple offers in the IOS Notes pen integration.

  4. Take a picture with iPhone camera instead of iPad camera.
    For better usability it would be easier to use user's iPhone to take picture and it is a feature I need every day. (Apple notes app has the feature)

  7. Two reasons I still prefer Noteshelf over GoodNotes.

    1. The menu bar area in Noteshelf takes on the default Mac colour scheme whereas GoodNotes has this dark blue top bar area for note windows. It's a little think but it's a slight niggle.

    2. While I make my notes on my iPad, I like to see my notes on my Mac and mostly have 2 notes open all the time on an additional monitor; one is my todo list and one is my planner. If I did this with Goodnotes, any time I close the app or restart my computer and then…

  8. I'm considering buying an iPad Pro and I love the idea of using a Pencil to take notes. My problem is that my handwriting is awful and my printing isn't much better. Back in the day I owned a Palm PDA. The quick way to enter notes into the PDA was by the use of gestures. A portion of the bottom screen was dedicated to entering gestures using a stylus. Yes, you had to memorize gestures but, this was not to hard as every letter and number was close to the way letters and numbers are usually hand written with…

  11. On Goodnotes Macbook, I believe that when I want to delete markings in an area, I would use the select function, and circle the area which selects the markings I want to edit and by pressing "delete" on my keyboard. But somehow that doesn't work with goodnotes, and apparently I could only switch to the eraser function. (Somehow the "delete function after double-tap is also greyed out, along with all the other functions including making screenshot, changing colour etc, not sure if its a glitch specifically regarding the macbook version of goodnotes, or is it something im simply not doing…

  12. bug: at the position where the outline is added, the cursor cannot be moved left and right with the keyboard only, this should be a mac version bug

    Suggestions: 1. The mind mapping function is really needed. The way to make and import using other software is very silly, and the pictures will float on the lines of the notebook, which is unacceptable!
    2. The outline needs to be arranged by itself. It is recommended to cancel the automatic arrangement or add related setting options. Want to refer to the way of the paper, 1 can have a subordinate directory…

  13. Hello dear GoodNotes team, I have been using your app for a long time and am thrilled. I would still have 2 change requests that would make my work easier. 1. Fixed zoom level when writing, so that you always have the same writing feeling or typeface. At the moment the typeface is constantly changing, because you can write at different zoom levels. 2. Always offer the last storage location when importing and also always offer importing as a new document (do not insert it because you happen to have a document open) (possibly adjustable). These two points would considerably…

  14. I found a very bad bug. That is, if you write text on the right side using the magnifying tool, it will look like a photo. I want you to fix it as soon as possible.

  17. Bug: When a pdf file was the last one I opened and then I moved it to the trash bin, it tries to be reopened and throws error when I open GoodNotes app again.

    Solution: Make sure the deleted file is also closed, preventing it to try to be reopened as the last one I edited when GoodNotes app is opened again.

  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. Hello there!
    I wanna ask you to change the word "move to trash" to something like "delete" or something like that, I don't like the fact that you say about some notes "trash".
    As you can know sometimes we delete a valuable note just because it is duplicated or some other reason not because it is a trash
