  1. Show in text format what I am writing by hand so I can see in real time what I need to edit.

    It would great to see if the app is understanding my handwriting before I convert to text.

    • View documents as lists as well as folders

      I have a large number of documents which means I need to scroll to find things. It would be good to have an option to view documents as a list which would enable more documents to be visible on the screen.

      • Reveal the screen step by step when projecting

        Hello, I use goodnote to project with a beamer. Would it be possible to add a cache to reveal step by step what is on the screen?

        • Enable master backup export/import function in native GoodNotes file

          Auto-backup of individual PDFs in real time to a cloud source of our choice is excellent! But what I'm talking about is the ability to do a one-click master GoodNotes database backup/export combined with the ability to do a one-click master database import. With the widespread iCloud sync errors, and the other problems that have risen, it would be nice to simply backup everything that is currently on my iPad (my master, the one file location that has all my notes, categories, organization, etc. just the way I like) to some cloud destination, then be able to delete the app…

          • Increase capability/depth of Categories and improve Category browser

            Limiting the number of number of categories and sub-categories to 1-in-1 keeps things "simple" when you have a small number of Categories. I use my iPad Pro and GoodNotes primarily for my pre-med studies. Each semester I make a new category, and a new sub-category for each class, then import lecture notes/slide presentations/PDFs into the sub-category. It would be nice at the top-end to be able to make a master category of "School" apart from other uses, a "Year" category within that, then "Semester," class, chapter/section, etc. This would be a VERY nice feature, but as the category browser currently…

              • Screenshot mode during presentations

                This mode which is already available with "PDF Expert" can be used to freeze the screen at the page you are presenting. This allows you to switch the page on your ipad and prepare something on the next page while everyone can still see and maybe copy notes from an earlier page on a big screen.

                  • Stickers on goodnotes

                    For those who want to customize their notebooks by adding stickers this is a very easy way to get nice stickers. Simply by downloading from app store any keyboard sticker app that you want, then insert a text box at goodnotes, switch the keyboard which belongs to the sticker app and finally copy or paste any sticker you want. I use chatsticker. Good luck

                    • 안녕하세요. 맥북 굿노트에 관한것 입니다.

                      우선 맥북용 굿노트는 손으로 쓰는것이 아닌 타이핑하는데 초점이 되었으면 좋겠습니다.
                      그리고 저는 논문을 읽고 하이라이트나 밑줄용으로 주로 쓰는데 밑줄 옵션이 없습니다...
                      또 글씨를 드래그 하고 일일이 하이라이트 버튼을 눌러야 하는데 그러지 말고
                      command를 누른 상태에서 글씨를 Drag하면 자동으로 하이라이트나 밑줄이 되겠금 했으면 도움될것 같습니다.
                      (이 부분에 있어서 맥용 어플이 ios 어플보단 훨씬 빠른 작업이 됨)

                                When having an selection with the lasso, let the menu-bar also alow to fill (pen or highlighter) the selected area with a color of choice.

                                      • When should we expect the iCloud sync to be fixed?

                                        I understand that you are working on a fix. Can you share with us the estimated date of the upgrade?
