  1. Zoom box bug:

    When using the zoom box, sections of it incrementally become unusable over time by a creeping white screen, usually after only 1 or 2 minutes of writing

    Why?? When will this be fixed?

  2. Create and save and share my own penstyle. Like Procreate or PS. Surely No need to be too powerful like procreate. But More efficient shortcut to different style preset is neccesary.

  3. Una de las mejores características del nuevo teléfono celular (de cualquier teléfono celular, sinceramente) es la capacidad de escuchar radio en línea desde https://emisorasderadionline.es/. Después de todo, sin una radio FM, la única forma de recibir la música que se está reproduciendo es conectar su teléfono a su sistema de radio FM a través del sintonizador FM dentro del estéreo de su automóvil. Entonces, para un teléfono promedio, el fabricante tendría que quitarle el chip FM para permitir que el teléfono reciba música. ¡No es exactamente la mejor experiencia! Afortunadamente, los avances tecnológicos recientes han hecho posible recibir señales…

  4. Dear Goodnotes sales team.

    Thank you for your great service.
    I`ve used Goodnotes 4 for 7 years from 2014 and I was really satisfied with your app before I knew released new version in App Store in the middle of 2020 and finished free upgrade service when I knew it.

    Unforturnately, I missed free upgrade service you provided to Goodnote4 user. But I sometimes thought it is really I am unluckly because I missed free upgrade service or Goodnote team is very unkind and unfriendly compared your other competitor like Flexcil.

    I try to use Flexcil app resently, this app…

  5. My issue is:
    When taking notes, sometimes I accidentally zoom in too much and my writing is too small for a normal document.

    My suggested fix:
    A setting to set the max zoom. That way, for my standard use case, I can set max zoom and have that be my comfortable writing size for the page size.
    Might be helpful to have on a document basis rather than a global setting.

    Thanks!

  6. GoodNotes should store all temporary photos that are pending insertion into a document! My elderly father wanted to take a picture of a client and annotate it in GoodNotes later, using the camera feature within GoodNotes. Unfortunately, the temporary photo was not stored because he did not tap on “Use Photo” in the lower right corner. He assumed that the photo would be stored in his photo library when taken, just like it is as soon as you take a picture with the default Camera app on iOS. Now the photo is lost and there is no way to get…

  7. I’m having trouble emptying the trash. When ever I try to empty it, the option goes away but the trash doesnt empty. I tried deleting them individually but that doesnt work either. Refreshing the app doesn’t help either. It’s making the app really glitchy for me with all the extra storage. Please help! :)

  8. For my lectures, I use "Mirror Presenter Page" to mirror my writing on a pdf file to an AirServer window on my Mac. The AirServer window is then overlayed in OBS with a video of myself (greenscreen). When I zoom out, Good Notes applies a black color to fill the background. I would like to suggest to be able to choose the background color (either black/white or color palette) and/or use a transparent background.

  9. Currently we need to use the lasso tool to do convert but its not practical at all, because we need then to copy the text and post a text box to put it inside, writing in MS word is easier this way! there is an app called Nebo and its doing it write, GoodNotes is my favorite so please make it easy to do so.

  10. I do sketching technical detail works on a black page canvas templates and usually I have to bring up a gradation colour set of white to grey.

    However when Im going back to another Notebook that is a white page I need to use black colours.

    It would be nice if we can first of all we had an option to switch between a customised colours of our own made set of 3s

    For e.g. I would have White, grey and Dark grey
    and Ill be able to hit a switch icon and it will cycle through to another made…

  13. Bring back support for 3rd party styluses! Specifically, SonarPen. According to its Kickstarter, goodnotes was in the beta stage for officially supporting it--what happened?

  14. Yesterday evening I created a folder on my desktop and added 7 files to it (exams I was about to grade). It took over 22 hours for these 7 files to finally appear on the iPad. Both the desktop and the iPad were connected to the network all the time. That's waaaaaaay too long.

  17. Move the COPY option back to the middle of the options when using the lasso tool. Having to move my hand/pencil all the way to the left (or to either far side, for that matter) is not intuitive for left or right-handed people.

  19. Right now good notes doesn't support pinching with three fingers to copy and pinching out to paste. The only option is to hold for a second until the copy option pops up which is a bit tedious and slow.

  20. I've been using Goodnotes 5 for several years both for work and for personal affairs. It's my go-to for note-taking, info filing, etc. (My Notability has gone into the Cloud, maybe forever ..).

    With frequent use over time, the problem is what I stated on the subject line. I know there's a way to "favorite" a page, a folder, etc. And yes, there is a SEARCH bar.

    But there does not seem to be flexibility in customizing my "library" of materials, and the layout of the main page (currently only by date, name, type) to enable me to feel better…
