I suggest you ...

Implement a splitscreen option.

The splitscreens option allows the user to see two pages of one document at once. With this option the user can open an informative pdf on the one side while taking notes on a different sheet on the other side.

    The ability to open two different notebooks side by side, will most likely be available in the next version of GoodNotes. Thanks for your patience!

        Fantastic news! This will be VERY useful.

        I have been using goodnotes every day for years (having tried pretty much every note taking app out there) and constantly refer people to goodnotes. Thx for your good work.

        This would be amazing! Please implement asap. I like good notes but would consider switching if I could get this function elsewhere..

        When giving a lecture, I would like to have the notes for projection and a document next to it (e.g. a pdf or other notes with my preparation) that is visible only on the iPad screen, but not to the audience.

        Please do split screen for PDF and notes. I dont own an iPad that can do split screen, but you would safe me if I could open both at the same time just using one app.

        Please Please Please!!! So I don't have to use other App to facilitate it. I'd love to just stick with One and the Only note taking app, Goodnotes!!

      • KenKen commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I am using other note taking app to facilitate. I'd rather focus to one and the only, Goodnotes. Please Goodnotes team!! The split screen will beat the others by so much!!

        I'm constantly comparing my notes between different sections/chapters for classes at school. I.e. Flipping back and forth between blank version and answer key version. Would be VERY handy to be able to have even just two PDFs open side by side for comparison/editing.

        I just like to see two pages from the same document.
        This is really helpful when organizing and restructuring ideas.

        This feature is much needed.

        "Use the tabs" is a cumbersome solution for many multi-document use cases. There is huge value in seeing both documents at once. For example, marking up a PDF while taking notes in a different document which is very common for students. Having important notes in one place is much better than looking for the note you made in a margin somewhere.

        Or combining documents in more than the simple "import below" method. It's much easier to copy and paste when you can see both at once. Heck, this is a perfect use case for drag and drop across documents.

        The only wish i have about goodnotes! I want to at least see two documents at same time.
        I study without paper.. just my ipad. It works good for me. But at the moment i have to use 2 Apps to take notes out of a document (Textbook, teachers notes, own notes). It would be perfect if i could write down my notes and annotade textbooks in Goodnotes simultaniously. Because, i love doing both of it with goodnotes. Actually i annotate in goodnotes an write my notes in notability...

        I really need to see my 2page week at a glance together. Right now, It's one half at a time.

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Yes, please. The ability to work on two notes at the same time is necessary for my schoolwork. As it stands now I have to use two different apps. I would much rather stay in GoodNotes.

        Plz. I really need this option. I want to see 2 pages at once!!!!!!

      • AnonymousAnonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Yes please!! It is so frustrating to not be able to multitask by viewing 2 files at once within the app

      • AnomAnom commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Just like the split-view option we have on Safari with the tabs. Love it, definitely will be making Goodnotes more powerful than what it already is.
