  4. When moving things around using the lasso tool in large documents I often experience that some text just randomly disappears. Sometimes it can be entire pages and it is very frustrating as a student when you just finished a page of an assignment and suddenly it is gone. If I restart the document then the text is back. Also I experience a lot of lagging when in a large document. I think these two things have to be fixed because I find GoodNotes the best note taking app on the market except for this rather disturbing error.

  5. I would like a quick access to the eraser. Instead of selecting the eraser in the menu bar I would for example love if you could change to the erase with a simple click or gesture on you screen. Maybe a quick double tap with your pencil

  6. I'm sorry to use this forum incorrectly. I'm not here to contribute idea, but rather seeking help. The zendesk on your website doesn't help to solve the issue.
    I have the GoodNotes 5 on my IpadPro and recently I downloaded the same apps on my iphone 11. During the syncing, there is a pop-up message to urge me to update the GoodNotes 5 on my IpadPro or it is unable to sync. Both apps were updated and I restarted both devices. But the problem persist. I need some help but do not know where to get it... Hope to hear…

  10. I love that users can propose new functionality and vote on others’ suggestions.

    What if users who are really keen on seeing certain projects get up, could also pledge $$ to help fund development of specific features?

    It would be a way of us putting our money where our mouths are. If lots of users really want to see a feature, and if we all throw in even a dollar or two behind that feature, then this could give you the resources to pay for hiring developers to implement that idea.

    You could even offer an Incentive Scheme — that…

  11. I have documents open. I quit Goodnotes on my iPad Pro (swipe up). The next time a open Goodnotes I have to drill down into one of my folders to open one of my documents to open the section of the app that shows all of my documents I had previously been working on. A button on the home screen that lets me resume previous session without the drill down would be spectacular.

  13. when you copy/paste something and add it at another place/page, you may not see everything, since it overlaps the page. As long as you still have the edit-window open, it's not an issue. However, when you tap on the page accidentally and you lose th edit-window, you're not able to see the text which is not directly on the page.

  15. I know, this suggestion sounds strange at the beginning. But if you take a moment to think about it, actually, it makes perfect sense:
    1. The best part of goodnotes is not editing text but handwriting strokes. Thus, when text from a keyboard is converted to handwriting strokes, it would be much much easier for majority iPad users.
    2. Save a lot of terrible handwriting users, like me. And it also makes notes look more consistent. :-)
    3. I guess it would not be too difficult to implement, just let the app pretend to get some perfect user handwriting.

  16. Safari PDF export and iPad OS full page screenshot generate a long single page PDF file. If I read it and then close, next time it opens zoomed out so that the whole single page is visible, so I lose the reading progress.

    With multi page PDFs this seems to be working, so this may even be a feature caused by that zoomed out view: it would be better to open the pdf so that you match the viewport to the display width.

  17. Allow "deviding" one page within a document into two separate ones.
    For instance; if there is a page with two excercises on it (1&2), it would be very helpful if you could "cut" or "divide" the page into two separate (smaller) pieces. This allows you to do exercise 1 right under the instructions, if there is not enough space to do so.

  18. Hi! I was reading from a GoodNotes book today and felt that if the window did not move (in both x and y) every time I touched the screen, it would be awesome because I would know that the motion of the page would be restricted to one dimension only. Think of it like adobe acrobat with mouse. This could be accomplished by a button in the UI. I feel it would greatly enhance user reading experience. Thanks!

  20. Email to Goodnote 5 is not a good feature.

    I have Goodnote 5 installed on my iPad and home computer Mac. The PDF files are no issue to sync. When I am in the compony which only use the Window 10 computer, I can't easily put the PDF file into the Goodnote easily. The easier method I know is to put the files into the Dropbox or cloud storage. Then, import the PDF files to the Goodnote 5 from Mac or iPad when I go back home. If I annotate the files using other software then follow the same steps…
