I suggest you ...

Allow searching *all* documents, not just the currently open document.

I *love* that I can search my handwritten notes! The rub is that sometimes something I'm searching for, spans multiple notebooks. It would be *wonderful* to be able to search all of the netbooks for the currently selected category!

    We’re happy to inform you that we have started working on universal search and it will most likely be available in the next version of GoodNotes.

        Can we get a glimpse on the planning on this for me essential update?

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Can we get an update on this? This is a glareing flaw in an otherwise very good app.

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I need this, in the short term I'm exporting all my notebooks to PDF and placing them in a folder to search. Deleting this app until the feature is released.

        Any update on this? The lack of this feature has got me seriously looking for alternative apps, which is sad because I'm otherwise quite pleased with goodnotes.

        The question is what next version means? Next update or a whole new GoodNotes 4 we will probably have to pay for?

      • Mahi_ND commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Can we also have a shortcut to add a page of the same style to the notebook with a single tap, or if this already exists someone please let me know how to do it

      • Mahi_ND commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Can we also add a floating eraser and change pencil color, that can be placed in anywhere in the page, to really make it quick to change between pencil and eraser etc

        I could really use this feature. I see it was marked planned a year ago, is it close to being released?

      • Aaron Ray commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        This is the one feature that's missing to make this a truly killer app. Must throw my support behind this as the #1 feature I need.

        Glad to hear that it's planned. Any update for us as to a timeframe?

        Great product but need the ability to search across multiple notebooks. I can not tell from the other posts, is this something that is planned for an enhancement?

      • rwallx commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Yes, let me add my enthusiasm for this. Search across all notebooks would be awesome. It is your handwriting recognition ability that has tipped the scales for me in favor of GoodNotes over Notability. The addition of global search would just seal the deal for me!

        Thats awesome this is planned, i just came here to ask for the same thing!

      • TCM commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I concur with the suggestion. Having the search across multiple notebooks is crucial when managing large collections of notes. Notability has this feature and it is what keeps me going back to that app when I get frustrated and cannot find what is in GoodNotes.
