  1. I am contacting you due to an error in the application. since several updates when you write a text and resize it, the text box is crooked and the text is not in a straight line. if you want to enlarge the text by enlarging the font size, it happens that it stays outside the text box and does not scroll correctly

  3. When batch importing images / files (via icloud) they are placed in random page order and need to be manually sorted.

    Example. I photograph my hand drawn Moleskine note books into Goodnotes as a reference and archive. BUT, the images in Icloud are all in a numbered order, but they are randomly imported in Goodnotes and I need to spend a considerable time putting them in order.

  5. I recently purchased GoodNotes and I’ll currently rate it 7 or 8 out of 10. But it’s disappointing that a $8 app is missing important, trivial features like a dotted line. Moreover, a suggestion for such feature has been on the forum since 2013 and has gotten a lot of votes. Seeing such a requested feature hasn’t been implemented in 9 years is honestly disappointing. Please pay more attention to feature requests.

  6. Please add a feature so that you can change the name of a file/document when you use shareable link. It will only show “GoodNotes”. Which makes it very confusing to know what’s what. I have attached a photo of what I’m talking about.

  8. Please fix the following bug: when duplicating a document, the pages in the new document are not in the order of the pages of the original, but rather in the order they were created in the original. I.e. if you inserted a page somewhere in the middle, this page will end up last in the copy. This means that before a copy becomes useful, one has bring the pages back into order.

  9. It would be convenient to add blocks from several sheets to the structure so that they can then be dragged together inside the document.

  10. Add a small box at the corner of each page to show the current zoom level. This will enable user to have the same zoom level on each page when taking notes to ensure consistence in writing style.

  11. When formatting text for example by using underline, bold, cursive, the whole text is being formatted with the last effect being used in the text when changing font size. Please change it so that when changing the text size already formatted words are being saved and not applied to the whole text box.

  13. Goodnotes Dokumente ineinander verlinken, sprich wenn ich im Dokument „siehe Kapitel xy“ schreibe, würde ich gerne dieses Kapitel aus einem anderen Dokument verknüpfen um somit mit einem Klick dorthin zu gelangen.

  14. Paging Transition WITHOUT any effect (like one can with PowerPoint or Adobe Acrobat).
    I use GoodNotes in virtual meetings as well in presence ones. The page transition animation are ‘nice at first’ but always distracting, specially in cases of two or more pages that are identical except a few visual clues (like an added box to call attention to a detail)… in those cases a clean, seemless transition, is a MUST.
    I saw many other suggestions of the kind here, all SHUTDOWN by some ‘moderator’ as being a non issue that you can set the presentation mode to always full

  17. When inside a notebook, it would be great to be able to open another notebook/document in a new tab (not a new window), without having to hit the back button and go back to the main list of folders/notebooks/etc

  18. GoodNotes still does not have implemented this great feature that apple introduced with iOS 13. Everywhere I can press long on the scrollbar and just slide it wherever I want. So I can reach the last page of a long book pretty fast. In GoodNotes I still need to scroll page by page until I am at the last page. This is pretty annoying. Even Notability has this feature implemented.
    You can see three photos attached, one while using Goodnotes (no thick scrollbar), one while using Notability (thick scrollbar) and one while using Safari (thick scrollbar).

    Please implement this!
