    • Merge notepads

      Would be great to be able to add a notepad after another notepad. My one way backup is set to pdf, so importing it would result in loss of flexibility. Copy and pasting of dozens of pages one by one does not seem like a good idea either.

      • It's really useful to add lines (especially straight lines with that tool) but it would be even more convenient if I could make those lines

        It's really useful to add lines (especially straight lines with that tool) but it would be even more convenient if I could make those lines into arrows!

          • Improve Notes Structure/Orgnization

            On top of the existing folder notebook structure it would be nice to be able to have sub-folders within a folder and searchable page titles within a notebook.

            As a use case, I am taking grad classes in the fall. I would like a folder that contains all my notes related to grad school. Within that folder I would like to have a sub-folder for each class with separate notebooks for class notes and reading notes. Within each notebook I want to be able to title notebook pages for the class date/topic they are on, or the chapter from the…

              • Add a bluetooth sync between Iphone and Ipad

                A sync between IPAD and IPHone. This would allow users to keep both devices updated. The IPhone could then be a handy reference device for your notes

                • Button to mark special pages

                  Can you add a Button in the taskbar to mark special page. eg important ones. They should be marked in the overview, too.
                  So you can mark them and find them easy. I need that for learning, cause not all the pages have important content.

                      • dictation- speech to text

                        As a teacher, I would like to give my students a record of our conferencing (hand written post-it) while keeping a record of the conference for myself, too. If I can dictate the conference to Goodnotes while I am handwriting the post-it, I will get the best of both worlds. Other notes apps have this dictation feature, but they are not as well organized as yours.

                          • Please may you create subfolders on Goodnotes and further break the subfolders down into further folders.

                            Example: A folder called 'Third Year' and in that folder have subfolders called 'semester 1' and 'semester 2' and in each subfolder have subfolders called Economics, Mathematics etc.

                              • Improve accuracy

                                Improve accuracy: this app and many other (penultimate, upad etc ...) is imprecise. The sketch is offset upwards in the upper area (about 2mm), the offset is reduced in the bottom area. In Paper app that does not happen. It 's very annoying (impossible) to write with the offset. I think the problem is software. Paper App works perfectly.
                                I tested on four different iPad
                                You can try moving a little metal washer on the screen(the sketch is not centered.
                                Thanks in advance
                                Best Regards

                                • Enable Goodnotes to connect to Webex so you can share content during a meeting

                                  It would be great to be able to share Goodnotes documents with other meeting users through Webex or other virtual meeting apps. Currently designing something, I made amendments to the original plans using Goodnotes and wanted to talk through them with others via Webex as well as continuing to make amendments as a result of what was discussed in the meeting.
