      Hi friends,

      We have started to design a whole set of new paper templates, which will be available in one of the next updates. It will contain different cornell note papers, as well as meeting notes, week planner and probably also a set of dark templates.

      Have a good day:-)

      • Add ftp support

        Add support for download directly from an ftp site. Possibly even syncing or access to ownCloud or other self hosted cloud solution.

        • I would love having the option to select different margin size per-document which would not change it for the other document.

          • "Open in..." for Word and PowerPoint Docs

            Unless I'm mistaken, I can use "open in..." to import a PDF email attachment to GoodNotes, but that ability is still lacking for Word and PowerPoint files. Please include this in a future update. Thanks.

              • Make this app available to more platforms

                Please make this app available to more platforms. I think many other tablets users except ipad hope to take advantage of this powerful app as well, such as Android, Windows and Blackberry playbook.

                • Organize alphabetically OR newest->oldest

                  I love GoodNotes and have personally recommended it to dozens of friends with iPads.

                  I love that it can sync instantly with Dropbox.

                  Here's my idea:
                  Allow folders to be organized by
                  -newest to oldest
                  OR
                  -alphabetically

                  I have a folder with 160 notebooks in it. It was tedious, but I took the time to organize it alphabetically. I would love a feature that could do that instantly

                  Dropbox has a simple menu in the corner with the two options. See pic below.

                  Thanks!

                  • Add Formula Match, like Note's on Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1

                    Formula Match is a maths formulas recognition system. You can see an example on the first 30 seconds of this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=26opB8DRf3c

                    As you can see, you can handwrite a formula and the app recognized it and paste it on your document. Also you can add a bottom to export that formula to wolfram alpha to calculate it.

                    Here you have the software you need with an online demo: http://webdemo.visionobjects.com/equation.html?locale=es_ES

                    If Android can, we can do it better!!! ;)

                    • Scroll PDF vertically

                      It is nice to be able to go to the next page going down instead of going left. It would also be nice if scrolling down to the next page continuous without jumping to the next page, so you can see the bottom of one page and the top of the next page.

                      • Reorder notes alphabetically within a folder

                        It would be easier to reorder notes if there was an option to automate "reorder" alphabetically instead of just drag-and-drop reordering.

                        • More Text box capabilities

                          I would like more options on what you can do with the text box. Such as:

                          1) ability to have two different writing styles in the same text box (red and black, bold and regular)
                          2) An indent button
                          3) maybe even a whole different text box for bullet points, lists, and things of that sort

                                • I need an easy way to re-order the pages.

                                  As I'm creating I sometimes I change my mind on the order of the info being presented. That means changing the order of the pages. At present GoodNotes will allow you to copy a page, but how do I paste it? GoodNotes is my favorite, but this issue is frustrating.

                                  1). Re-order pages
                                  2). Add the ability to rotate a photo
                                  3). Add more Fonts
                                  4). Add more colors
                                  5). Add more shapes or stamps as previously suggested. (I need arrows)
                                  6). Add the ability to see the entire page while I'm adding text and moving things around.

                                  I love…

                                    • Add "ToDo list" to notebook templates

                                      I use a physical ToDo list to write down my Things-To-Do. it would be nice to have a template added to the notebook template library

                                      • Add support for use of SpiderOak (spideroak.com)

                                        Spideroak provides much better privacy/encryption options than some of the standards like dropbox. Thank you for your time.

                                        • Add the ability to resize images without keeping proportions

                                          When an Image is selected you get 8 handles to resize the image. The handles at the 4 corners resize the Image keeping the aspect ratio. That is expected behavior. But the handles at the edges should resize the width or the height of an image.
                                          It is currently not possible to insert a white image and resize it to mask a part of a page (classroom).
