    Hey everyone, in GoodNotes 5, we added the ability to set the scrolling direction to “vertical”: https://support.goodnotes.com/hc/en-us/articles/360000118135-How-to-set-the-scrolling-direction-to-horizontal-or-vertical

    We’re using a framework for page handling that treats every page as a separate file. This allows things like:
    - export of a selection of pages
    - easy reordering of pages within a document
    - rotation of pages
    - adding images/photos as standalone pages
    - mixing multiple file types (PDF, Word, PowerPoint, GoodNotes) in a single document
    - etc.

    Since each page is an individual file, a truly infinite sheet is not feasible with the current framework.

    > If infinite pages aren’t currently feasible could a feature making it easier to write on the bottom 1/4 of a page be added. Currently the pages locks and I think a simple allowing the page to not lock to my screen and position the bottom portion freely in the middle of my screen would make a huge difference.

    This is exactly what it needs. Other applications do this, such as Procreate. It's very difficult to write in the bottom section of the iPad and forcing this is terrible UX.

    Update: I've solved this folks. Switch your scrolling direction to vertical, and make sure you've always got an extra page added. Then, when you need to write at the bottom of a page, you can simply scroll up and onto that last blank page, but writing on the bottom of the previous page.
