  1. Add an option to change the paper template throughout the whole notebook, so that in the end every page will have the same background with one simple tap.

  2. I typically need to work on the same document in multiple devices. For example, i may annotate a pdf at home using my iPad but at work I may need to read the annotated pdf in my laptop. Would be great to have full synch using iCloud Dropbox or similar services

  5. I'd love to be able to make the background of diagram images transparent within GoodNotes. I like how this is action performed using an app called MagicEraser, as demonstrated in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pyty9XGv494&feature=youtu.be&t=262

    This feature would be very useful, especially when using dark paper.

    I wish to skip the step of using a different app just to make the background transparent. I constantly need to give my images a transparent background and I really want a faster way to do it. That's why I would love for GoodNotes to have features like those in the MagicEraser app.

    Thank you!

  6. You definitely have to include the Dropbox sync function as realized in goodreader. this would be essential!
    And I'm convinced a bunch of people will be willing to pay more for your app

  7. Have an option in the highlighter options section to either be darker in the overlapped areas or not to darken the overlapped areas (consistant shade).

    You will blow Notability out of the water once your upcoming additions are implemented!

    It's already a top 5 app that makes the 12.9" iPad useful. Thanks!

  10. Having the option of changing the whole notebook template with a simple click would be very useful for people who uses a lot of pages with grid template to standardize the writing at first, and wanting to change it to other template for a cleaner look.

  12. I often use GoodNotes to revise documents sent to me or scans for textbooks.

    Often I need more space to make notes on the page that I am commenting. It would be great if GoodNotes could grow margins around the imported page giving me plenty of space to write.

  13. Add a paper page as new paper type with the date of today into the default paper type. So you are able to create a new note book with empty pages withe the date of today like a dairy book.

  15. Have the option to add page numbers to the notebook pages. I sometimes need to reference a page of my notebook along with a task form another page or notebook, right now I don't see a way to have page numbers happen automatically when adding or deleting pages from the notebook. Having a link system (so my task says "see notes on page 4" and when I insert a new second page - the note is now on page 5, the text would change "see notes on page 5".)

  16. We need an option to somewhat invert dark papers with bright colors into white papers with a dark color but in a more controlled way so we can read on a dark mode and print it on a typical paper.

  17. Sometimes to sketch things out letter or DIN A4 are to short, so it would nice to have endless paper (like OneNote). Which you can scale if you need to print it out. Or have something like 4 DIN A4 papers which fit together with tesa strip.

  18. I would like to have the option to share a whole folder with team members. All of the members should have the possibility to work in all notes inside the folder and to add new notes to the folder.
    Also I would like to get notifications when someone changed or added things inside the shared folder/note. So that I can directly jump in and see the changes. It feels quite cumbersome that someone has to contact me outside the system to tell me that he worked inside the notes/added notes etc.
