  1. I wish I could select only the highlight in the page. It is under the Handwriting toggle. I wish the pen and highlight were separate for the lasso tool so I can selected them individually.

  2. Sometimes we users forget to stop the audio recording, and wake up the next day to a notebook that has been recording for 12+ hours. Currently there is no way to trim the audio recording. It would be great if it were possible to trim it so only the part we're interested in remains in the notebook :D

  3. I love the new feature that involves internal links (linking to a seperate page within your document) however it is only accessible for a text box.

    I write most of my notes by hand with my Apple Pencil and would love to be able to use the lasso to select my handwritten notes and attach an internal link to other pages. The same could be said for elements/stickers

  5. My handwriting is so messy that I write with a ruler in daily life. I tried it with the ruler on the screen, and it’s not possible.
    The words are ‘sucked’ like a magnet to the ruler and automatically draws a line.

    It would be soooooo nice to be able to have the ruler not be ‘magnetic’ and write on it.

    I can’t read my own handwriting without ruler and it looks very very stupid when I’m holding a real life ruler against my ipad screen in meetings…

  6. Currently, in the GoodNotes app, annotations made in other note-taking apps like Apple's native Notes app are embedded into the PDF upon import, making them uneditable within the app. I would greatly appreciate it if you could make it possible to recognize and edit annotations within PDFs.

  8. I use the Text Tool a lot but every time i want the text in another color it takes too much time. I would love to see the simple ability (as with the Pen tool) to put text color presets in the toolbar!

  9. The ability to handwrite or text annotation on a PDF with infinite space for those who do not have very tiny handwriting. Goodnotes uses the margins of the PDF for handwriting. Maybe adding the PDF to a page to allow for more handwriting space.

  10. Please create a subscription plan option for only Apple device support. I don't mind paying a subscription fee, but I don't want to pay $10 for platforms I don't use. Give me a $7 Apple only option like you have a Windows/Android only option.

  11. When searching handwritten notes, the word is highlighted is yellow colour which is visible in white or yellow paper but it is very difficult to clearly see the word on a dark paper. So highlighting it with a lighter colour will be easy to see.

    • Once an external link is placed in the document, it is interruptive to have to click through approval for External link every time you follow the link

  13. Similar to the study cards, it would be great if you could implement Research Index Cards to be used during the literature research when writing your Thesis. Ideally the set can be grouped and sorted in a flexible way. I have attached a sample how it could look like.

  14. The fact that this hasn't been resolved yet is a bit silly. Moving to a subscription model, adding a bunch of AI no one asked for and then one of your basic tools has been broken since release...

  16. It is difficult for us Japanese people to use it.
    Unlike other countries, Japanese text is turned in the opposite direction.
    Will a setting to turn pages from right to left be added?

  18. When I airdrop a Goodnotes 6 file or page to someone using GoodNotes 5, it crashes down and the folder to which the page has been added can‘t be opened any more. Especially at school this is a big problem - all our pupils use GoodNotes 5, some teacher use Goodnotes 6. And now I can only airdrop pdf files, which does not allow the children to move around bits of text. Please make the two versions compatible.

  19. Apparently, Goodnotes 6 is no longer available for children under the age of 16 - familiy sharing does not work any longer and a purchase can‘t be made for under 16s. Most pupils need Goodnotes for school, however. How can this be?? Please find a solution for this!
