  6. It'd be awesome if the Windows application can support document imports just like the iOS app. Importing lecture slides to annotate note is an integral part of our study workflow, having this ability would help a lot of students out there.

  8. As of now, I have only been able to scroll down through all the pages in a notebook. It would be nice to have the option to swipe left or right to flip through the pages. (like a Kindle Book)

    📣 Introducing Draw and Hold! We're happy to announce that now you can hold your stylus at the end of a drawing to automatically straighten or snap into a shape. Also, now you can enable the option to always draw highlighter in straight line 😉

    You can enable this by going to advance settings of Pen tool and enabling Draw and Hold.

  10. Can we have option to add more colours. The current color set presented is very limited and I would love the ability to add more custom colours in.

Now you can choose any color you like and save it as a preset for future use. This is perfect for adding your personal touch to your digital notes and documents. Get ready to make your notes pop with your own unique color schemes! 🎉🌈

  11. The medium-thick pen is thick, and the thin one is too thin. I hope the thickness selection step will be increased to five.

    🚀 NEW FEATURE ALERT! 🚀 You can now customize your pen or highlighter thickness to suit your exact needs! 


    Whether you prefer a finer point for more detailed notes or a thicker stroke for emphasis, the choice is now yours. Simply select the custom thickness option and adjust the slider to your desired width. It's that easy!


    We're gradually rolling out the update.  Refresh your GoodNotes for Windows app or restart your Goodnotes for Android app to today.

  12. Instead of having a premade notebook cover, it would be nice if we could upload an image of our own. For example, if I am taking Bio 2401, I would like to upload the image of the Bio 2401 textbook cover.

    Methods for adding your desired images as notebook covers:

    1. New Notebook Creation:Tap on +New -> Image or Take photo to begin a book with your preferred photo.
      Continue by adding new pages to your notebook, choosing from a variety of template options.
    2. Existing Book:Open the sidebar and navigate to the first page.
      Tap on ... -> Add page before -> Import from camera to add images as notebook covers.
  13. Being able to download your goodnote files would be a great addition, since you can only access your files while you are connected to the internet right now.

    Thank you for reading.

  14. It would be nice if you could choose a new style for each page that you add to the existing notebook. For example: You chose blank pages for your notebook in the beginning but you need lined pages later.

    We're excited to introduce support for circle and oval shape recognition with draw and hold. Now you can draw a circle or oval shape freehand and GoodNotes will automatically convert it into a perfectly shaped object.


    To use this feature, simply enable draw and hold in your advanced pen settings. Then, draw your circle or oval shape and hold your pen in place for a moment. Voila! Your shape will be recognized and turned into a perfect circle or oval.


    We're gradually rolling out the update. Refresh your GoodNotes for Windows app or restart your Goodnotes for Android app to update.

    • allow us to import/export PDFs while being able to edit them

    Users can create a new notebook by importing a PDF, or they can import a PDF into an existing notebook. Additionally, they can also export the notebook as a PDF file.

  17. Would it be possible to be able to make text boxes like on the original application (on apple)
    which would make it easier to take notes at school

  18. I'm having a little issue with constantly having to undo because the slightest touch creates pen marks or drawings. It would be nice to have the touch sensitivity feature that iOS does because I currently use a Microsoft surface pen to draw and not my finger or another similar stylus. I know you can use 2 fingers to move the screen, but in the iOS version, it isn't necessary. I would love to see this update included!

    Happy to announce that we've introduce a new toggle under advanced pen options to connect or disconnect stylus. This will ignore finger touch as drawing input when connected to stylus. Give it a try and let us know if it solves the issue that you faced.


    Thank you for your feedback and keep em coming. We are actively monitoring this forum to know what to work on next.

  19. The ability to create custom page templates to use in the notebooks. Also, need to be able to change templates to accommodate what we want with out changing ones we already have in notebooks.
