  1. There should be a better option when I need to send multiple files via email as separate pdfs. I often have to send multiple files from Goodnotes and it would be great if I could select that I want to send them as two separate pdf attachments. But the only option to keep them as separate pdf's is to send multiple emails because if I select multiple files to send as an email it will merge them into one large pdf.

  2. Please allow to add not only PDF but also images from the Files-sheet by tapping +. When draging-and-dropping in splitview from the Files app adding images to documents as new page works fine, so why don‘t you allow it from inside the app?

  3. Can GoodNotes please allow me to export my notes with a table of content and handwriting recognition at the same time? It is such a bummer that I cannot have both of these basic features to exist in the same file :(

  5. Hy guys
    It‘s actually not a feature, but a little detail that was bothering me...
    Every time I tag an important page and skip to the next page using my Apple-Keyboard, the tag continues for all the following pages. Only by swiping with my fingers the tag remains on the important page.
    Could you do something about that?

    Thanks a lot ;)

  6. 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.

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

  9. 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…

  10. 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…

  13. 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…

  14. 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…

  15. 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.

  16. there are a few features that exist on the IOS Application that is missing on the WIndows/WEB Application. for example I am missing the ability to fill in forms and drawings that I made. also, the ability to have several documents open in the same app. I can also not erase notes just by scribbling over them, which might be a problem for Lenovo and also there are just way more possibilities to customize the Pen on the Tablet App.

  17. Introduce the ability to insert an mp3 audio into a document. In this way, in case it was not possible to register with the application itself, I can have the registration and the document all in one file.

  19. When using Good Notes on iPad Pro, it hides the system icons like WiFi, Battery or Date&Time. I need them visible. They used to be visible but changed for some reason.

    Please address this. Thanks you very much for your time
