  5. We need the ability to make shape templates, science professionals and educators like myself are constantly drawing geometric shapes like benzene rings, carbon chains, orbitals, reaction arrows, mechanism arrows, and some really complex molecules and structures. If we could draw it once, and save the shape to use again later so that we don't have to redraw from them scratch everytime.

    🚀NEW FEATURE ALERT!🚀We introduce this shiny new feature: image tool!


    You can now easily add images to your document! You can add images from you file system, or using our drag and drop feature! You can also edit and delete the added images, or copy, cut and paste added images. With image tool enabled, we hope to make your note-taking experience even easier and more enjoyable!


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

  7. 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.

    📣 Exciting news! We are thrilled to announce that Goodnotes for Windows and Android now supports PDF document imports! You can now easily import any PDF document into Goodnotes for Windows and annotate it as you please.  


    We want to hear from you all about what other types of documents you need us to support. Let us know and we'll make note-taking even easier. Thank you for your continued support and feedback!

  8. Would be nice if you were able to download and insert other templates and premade notebooks, as it is for the mac-version.

    Custom Template feature is live and available to all Goodnotes for Android, Windows, and Web users.

    Kindly go to Setting -> Manage Notebook templates -> Edit at the top right corner to add your custom covers and notebook templates.


  9. 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)

    We heard you loud and clear! Excited to announce that custom color selection is now available in GoodNotes for Windows! 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. It would be very nice if you could just draw a line and hold the stylus at the end of it to automatically straighten it.

    📣 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.

  12. 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.

  13. It would be great if you could change the pen type and the color you wrote in afterwards. This makes it easier to adjust so that a document is clearer, or so that you can read it better when you print it out.

    Thanks so much for sharing your feedback so we can make Goodnotes better.

    Lasso any of the previous pen stroke & highlights to change it's color.


    If you like the feature, please consider leaving a good review and sharing the new feature with your friends.


    Thank you,

  14. 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.
  15. 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.

  17. Currently, when adding a new page it duplicates the style from the page before. I would love to see something similar to the IOS Version, where you can either add a new page instantly or add a different type.
    Happy Holidays btw :)

  20. 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.
