    • Move palm rest from bottom to right or left side.

      When I write, I use my right hand but I write like a lefty, so my palm is always to the right of my stylus. It would be nice to be able to move the palm rest from the bottom of the screen to the left or right hand side of the screen.

      • Change ratio/properties of shapes (triangles, squares, rectangles, circles)

        Sometimes it's hard to write precise enough to get a wanted shape. For example, often I want to draw a symmetrical circle, but I get an ellipse instead.

        It would be nice if the select tool let you change properties of a shape by dragging highlighted points at the shape. This is similar to letting the select tool rotate objects. This way you could easily change the angle of a triangle - very useful in math classes.

          • Selecting and moving more than One Page inside of a notebook

            I use the App for very large Documents, where I have to change the order of pages. Would be very well if it would be possible not only to mark and delete more than one page in the overall view, but also to select and move multiple connected Pages in One Step.

              • create an option to clear cache

                Today my iPad ran out if storage space. I checked the usage page in Settings and Goodnotes was taking up 4GB of space. A few minutes later the iPad automagically launched into "cleaning" mode for Goodnotes and then, voila, the app's usage had dropped to 65MB. I create a lot of big files in Goodnotes but regularly clean them out when I'm done. It would be great if I could manually trigger a cleaning of the app's cache so that it doesn't grow to several GB again.

                  • Doble tapping

                    I think it is of big interest to activate doble tapping for the text to be automaticaly adjust to the width of the screen, a feature present in the majority of iOS apps.

                    • The Automatic Palm Rejection funtion doesn't work well to me.

                      Even though I switch on the Automatic Palm Rejection and rotate the writing angles, it still can't avoid most of unwanted marks !

                      • Angled Lines and Dotted Lines

                        The shape/line recognition is awesome, but it would be much more useful for myself and my students if lines at a slight angle didn't automatically change orientation, and if there was an option for dotted lines. Thank You!

                          • font size

                            Make the font size slider a drop down list

                            Every time I lift my finger off the slider the value changes! Grrrr.

                            • Add dynamic page lengths option

                              When I use the app to take notes in class or in a meeting I would like to use one page for each meeting or class session. It would be nice if there was an option that allowed the page length to expand a you go in this case instead of being a fixed size.

                                • Add sub-folders within each folder page.

                                  It would be amazing to be able to further organize and divide notebooks within the major folder options. For instance, I have a folder for a class I'm in. Within that, I would love to be able to have an additional folder to store my notes, reading notes, and PDFs foreach particular lecture. As it is now, I have roughly 60 unorganized notebooks within that single folder.

                                  • Turning the page

                                    For those people who work horizontally, it would be great, if the pages could be turnable, or if the little writing box could be turnable at least in order to use it.

                                        It will be good to have support for bookmarks that works with Adobe on PC as all the current bookmarks (in table of content) will be lost when goodnotes sync with dropbox.

                                        • Add Multiple Picture Taking when adding from Camera. Like a quick scan document features.

                                          Some times I need to take pictures several pages of document and use it in GoodNotes right away.

                                          The tapping process now is very long...
                                          +Button
                                          Import
                                          Import Below
                                          Camera
                                          CameraButton
                                          Use

                                          Provide a feature for scanning docs... Fast picture taking...

                                          Also please put the CameraButton in a convinient place...
