  1. If there could be a tray where I can add 4-5 various colors of pens and highlighter mimicking a real physical object that I can just pickup and write. For example, I could add a red colored pen with fine thickness, a black colored pen with bold thickness, yellow highlighter pen with certain thickness and automatic straight line.

    In that way I can jump between each tools and options without having to turn on/off auto-straight-line function or adjust the thickness every time I change a writing tool.

    You can let this function to be optional that users can toggle on/off…

  5. I love using the lasso tool to move my handwriting around on the page. I also use the vertical scrolling feature to write my notes, but when I want to move text from one page to the next within the lasso tool, I can’t just drag it on. I have to copy/paste to the next page then cut or erase the text from the previous page. It’s a small thing, but a change that would improve work flow.

  7. As teachers, we use this to take pictures of lessons on which we are working, allowing students to highlight and write on the photos. Students also create short presentations of their work, which we record. It would be awesome to be able to insert video into Goodnotes!

  8. I would love it if there was a way to access notebooks online in a way that we could edit the organization of the notebooks. This could be in the form of a website where you can log in to access your notebooks, or maybe making a downloadable app/program for Windows.

  9. I would like more options on what you can do with the text box. Such as:

    1) ability to have two different writing styles in the same text box (red and black, bold and regular)
    2) An indent button
    3) maybe even a whole different text box for bullet points, lists, and things of that sort

  10. Since iOS 13 there is the possibility to hold and drag the scroll bar on the right to scroll. This does not seem to be the case in GoodNotes 5. It‘s a very small but useful feature to get a quick glance at the document or finding a page in a big document. Once you get used to it in other apps like OneNote, you start to miss it in GoodNotes 5.

  12. I think it would be great if we could lasso an item, whether it be pen, text, or image and have the option to move it back or forward a layer. Ie if you write something handwritten then insert an image and lasso the text/whatever you've drawn on top of it, it gets hidden behind the picture. I've love to lasso it, select move to front and then move it on top of the picture.
    Don't necessarily need layers to be like in Procreate but, some ability to move lasso'd items in front or behind other items would be a…

  13. The shape tool is amazing no doubt but it still lacks some major shapes. If you try to draw a semi circle by a quick stroke it converts it to a straight line, same goes for an arc. This is difficult while taking maths lectures as it requires a lot of shapes. Some shapes that don't work are: semi circle, arc, sector, parabola.

  16. A separate button next to the “pens” for typewriting. This would entail being able to type normally wherever we tap on the page to create an insertion point. This would also contemplate minimal text styling; bold, italic, underline, several colours and the ability to change font and/or font size for any given part of the text.

  18. Actual the size of the paper is fixed.
    But nevertheless that I use A0 I am limited during Brainstorming and other creative workshops. Therefore I must use another tool (Zoomnotes). But this is not helpful at all to switch from tool to tool.
    Is there a chance in the near future to implement a more to enlarge the size of the paper endless?

  19. Many users asked for a ruler but in my opinion it makes more sense to add a triangle ruler as a new funktion, because then you can't only measure lenghts, but also measure angles and draw straight.
    Especially in math or physics classes, you often have to measure or draw angles.
    And putting your physical triangle ruler on the iPad isn't a nice long-term solution, is it?
    Therefore I would be happy about a triangle ruler funktion in GoodNotes 5 :D.

  20. I usually keep two notebooks open on my iPad in tabs. I write in thin black on one notebook, and the other notebook I write on an index card template in a thick marker like pen setting. Moving between tabs, it would be nice if a notebook would remember the last pen setting used inside it. I need to switch back and forth quickly, and having to change pen type, color and thickness every single time gets old fast. Thanks for your great product!
