  2. I read and annotate a lot of PDFs. Some of these PDFs although very compressed and have relatively small size (~30MB). Have lots of pages (200 plus). When I attempt to export back to PDFs, for review on my computer, the file becomes too big (>200MB) to transfer to my computer.

    Please incorporate a PDF like editing engine ( e.g.Adobe, Goodreader, etc) to control the size of exported PDFs with large number of pages)

  4. Please make it possible to sync with a private or Company cloud.
    (Synology, Qnap, etc..)

    Many Companys dont allow to sync with third party storages :-(

    Thanks!

  7. Specifically, I'd really like to see Swedish, but I'm sure there are people from all over the place wanting to see support for their language. Cheers!

  8. While taking notes in meetings I find that tasks end up getting embedded in my notes.

    Without having to switch to another task management app it would be convenient to be able to create a task on the fly and have it inserted into the page where I'm taking the notes.

    Then, please allow me to view/manage tasks across the entire notebook, the entire folder or my entire GoodNotes installation.

    For starters, all I would ask for would be the ability to check a task when it's completed and view/sort tasks by notebook / folder / all GoodNotes, checked/unchecked/either, toggle…

  9. When an Image is selected you get 8 handles to resize the image. The handles at the 4 corners resize the Image keeping the aspect ratio. That is expected behavior. But the handles at the edges should resize the width or the height of an image.
    It is currently not possible to insert a white image and resize it to mask a part of a page (classroom).

  10. Would be great to lock an image in place so that we can select/erase images above without compromising the locked image.

  12. I'd love to be able to insert a blank table or graph in which I could then write/draw. This could easily be added under the existing plus symbol for inserting images, text boxes, etc.

  13. 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.

  14. 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!

  15. In computer science I draw a lot of diagrams of nodes or trees. I spend a lot of time drawing directional arrows neatly. I think it would be awesome if there was a line option that will automatically add an arrow head to my curve or line, and allow me to adjust the curvature of the line if needed. Thanks for listening.

  16. If there was one thing I could change or add to it would be the library view, I don't particularily like the virtual bookshelf that so many apps use. I'd much prefer a simple expandable folder/file list, ideally sortable on file name and revision date.

  17. In PDFs, normally I highlight the most important information, and at the end I want to see in a list, all the sentences that were highlighted.
    Please make this happen for a next update!
    Thanks

  18. Hi guys. I love this app, But GoodNotes does not support the Portuguese language. Please fix this. Portuguese and Brazilian users would appreciate this care. Please! With the excellent Handwriting Recognition, it is very important.

  20. 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.
