  3. I downloaded the app because I'm jealous of all the Apple users and the good notes app. I love the functionality that I witness others being able to use. This Android version has a long way to go. The first two things that I would like to see happen is horizontal scrolling and hyperlinks working. For example I have a 365-day journal but I cannot click on the hyperlinked days to jump from date to date. And I cannot horizontally scroll I have to vertical scroll all the way from January 1st to current date. That is tedious and very…

  5. It would be very usefull to be able to change the color of what we wrote.
    Use the tool to select, the one which allow to move the text. And select a different color.

  9. We can now import documents into Goodnotes which is AMAZING, but now I think it is more crucial than ever to be able to have text recognition, select texts, highlight texts, and add comments that are linked to the highlighted text. This probably also goes in line with being able to type text with a keyboard.

  10. Especially now that importing pdfs is available, it would be very useful to be able to copy and paste pages and/or move them within the notebook or between notebooks. For files such as planners, digital pdf notebooks or other documents, I need to be able to copy and paste different page templates at the end of the notebook to the beginning or the other way around. I hope you will be able to incorporate this into the Beta Version of the app.

    Thank you for considering my suggestion.

  11. Because the functionality is so incredibly limited, I'm guessing the beta was released just to see what the interest level was.

    I would suggest adding far more features so that we can really get excited about having the full version, just like the iOS one. You could set up pre-orders even!

    The beta does not give me any incentive to want to switch from my current pdf markup app. From what I've seen others do with the iOS version though, I would switch in a heartbeat if this version were anything like that.

    Give us something to get excited about…

  13. On the one hand, I would find importing files very important. In addition, I lack the function to insert my own pictures or pdf's as a booklet template. There are too many differences in the thickness of the pins. The smallest step is too thin compared to medium, which is already very thick. Otherwise, maybe text fields or similar for typing with a keyboard. In addition, of course, sharing or exporting would be very helpful. Maybe just have a look on some functions of Goodnotes 5.

  16. Allow the eraser option to either remove by stroke or just the way it is
    Making our own pallete (this would include a colour picker)
    Allow the users to have the ability to control their pen stabiliser (similar to that of digital drawing softwe)
    Making our own page templates or importing from the web
    Pinning pens with different colours
    Most windows styli has two buttons it would be great to allow the user to change commands between those two buttons
    Zooming in and out is a bit laggy as well as writing very quickly
    Costumising page size
    Brush imports or…

  17. A PDF file that I imported has tabs across the top linked to other pages in the same pdf. The links don't work though. It does nothing when I click them. This is a crucial need for those who use GoodNotes as a Calendar/Journal. Also, importing our own custom PDF files to be used as templates is extremely important to most users. I can't find anywhere to set pressure sensitivity or turn off pressure sensitivity for the pen either. Writing doesn't feel as natural and smooth as it does on the iPad either.

  18. I'm really happy to be able to import pdfs. One thing that I wish we had is the ability to add new blank pages onto pdfs we imported. So if I run our of apace, I can just add a new blank page between the pdf pages.

  19. 5 Mar 2023, I was not able to find a text tool. And I was not able to copy text from a webpage and past it into a note page in GoodNotes. If I'm missing something I am sorry. Is this feature just missing right now or am I missing something? Currently I am only using mouse and keyboard input... I'll connect my Wacom Intuos tablet and try again.

  20. Hello, I am a first time user to GoodNotes. When I heard that GoodNotes Beta was available on Windows, I immediatley grabbed my chance to try it out.

    As a student, PDFs are one of the most abundant resources for University materials. It would be very nice to be able to both edit PDF pages and add whole/speicific PDF pages either in between some pages in the notebooks or anywhere else in the notebook.
