  1. Double tap to toggle between zoomed out view and last set zoom

    Or optionally, a configurable double tap function, where users can map various popular functions to a double tap

    • Cloud Integration

      Fully intergrate other cloud services so that folders made in GoodNotes can be synchronised to specific folders in the users’ cloud services (I.E. have different GoodNotes folders be able to be backed up to different DropBox locations). It would also be great to have the ability to add files to dropbox folders and have them automatically show up on the GoodNotes apps.

        • More pen options besides ball point and fountain like notes plus

          Notes Plus has four pen styles to choose from. Add pen choices and pencil choices, and I'll use your app most and leave a review.

            • .. add a functionality for rotating objects.

              I prefer sketching my projects and whilst copying and changing size works fine ..

              Using Lasso and having the option to rotate would be great!!

              • Repair the broken iCloud synch and add other cloud services.

                It is obvious. Backup works fine, iCloud sync doesn't.

                • Make miniature view permanent beside sheet

                  Provide a Nebo like permenant view of miniature pages besides the sheet instead of having it as an overlay.
                  I tried it in Nebo (no replacment for Goodnotes) and it gives you the possibilitiy to quickly overview your notebooks content and jump to a specific page immediately.

                  • Different marked area options

                    It may make sense to put the "copy" and "delete" options when tapping a marked area to the left side (so that you see them when tapping directly and don't have to click right in German Language).

                    • Add Full Screen Horizontal View

                      Please let originally vertical pages to be viewed in fullscreen horizontal. Look at the attachment. Because the letters are too small in vertical view, i change the ipad to horizontal view. But in the first screenshot at Goodnotes it's not fullscreen, and i need to zoom every time. I want it to be like in the second screenshot, it is from Adobe Reader app, it automatically makes it fullscreen horizontally and i can read easier and scroll faster. Please make it like that in Goodnotes too.

                        • Dotted lines, tangent lock on shapes/lines and quick 3D shapes

                          I am an engineering student. After trying multiple apps your app has by far been the best for the college student who takes higher level math courses. Every other app that allows to draw decent shapes and lines are way too complicated and targeted more for artists. We need to be able to take neat notes that involve shapes and numbers quickly and efficiently. While I love your shape feature it is time consuming to draw 3D shapes while trying to incorporate dotted lines to show hidden parts of the shape. Having a dotted line feature as well as maybe…

                          • iCloud-Sync-Problem

                            Hi, I'm very disappointed about this iCloud-Sync-Problem .. do you have any ETA for a solution? I have >1000 documents in my notebook and really love GoodNotes both on iOS and macOS.

                            I'm asking if it's worth waiting or better start to migrate to an app that syncs.

                            By the way I'm not convinced that the problem comes from iCloud, because other apps like MindNode or Notability manage to sync over iCloud .. and GoodNotes worked to some time ago ..
                            Also the problem is reproducible for me, after I do your switch-iCloud-off-and-on-cure ..

                            • allow to stay zoomed out

                              I want the "reverse" of the zoom box, or the ability to stop goodnotes from re-zooming-to-fit. I set up "index card" templates, on which I want to write in large letters, but I want to write them in a similar font size I would use on a physical index card... but since goodnotes keeps zooming-to-fit, I have to write "bigly" and it makes my handwriting messy.

                              • Allow setting default cover & paper templates for each category VS last used

                                It would be handy to be able to set a specific pairing of cover/paper templates to be used for all new documents in specific categories (instead of always popping up with the last used ones).

                                • Vertical scroll

                                  Continuous vertical scrolling would be great for quick maneuver. horizontally scroll each page took me very long time.

                                  • have a text-to-speech option

                                    We would like an option where students could highlight the text and have it read to them to help our low readers with difficult text. Maybe have it coordinate with the iPad Accessibility option of text-to-speech.

                                    • Implementation of more levels of sub-categories

                                      I would like to nest one more level in the category of notebooks. For example for Region 1 Client X has Project 1 to 5, the latter being 5 sub-categories of Client X. Is this feature being considered?
