  1. Full Drag and Drop Support in iOS 11

    For iOS 11, it would be great if photos, text and pdfs could be dropped into a workbook. You could also add drag and drop support for moving individual pages between different notebooks and moving notebooks to different folders.

    • Enable pen angle recognition for Apple pencil and ruler function.

      The Apple notes app and some Adobe apps recognize the angle in which the Apple pencil is lead over the surface of the iPad and changes the stroke width depending on that angle,
      Furthermore the ruler feature of Apple notes would be helpful to aim at a certain point drawing lines. Especially drawing graphs would be easier in this way.

      • Enable Fountain Pen style with Apple Pencil

        When using Apple Pencil, a terrific combination with GoodNotes and the iPad Pro, there is no difference between the Ball Pen style and the Fountain Pen style. As a result, the beautiful look of handwritten ink with the Fountain Pen style is unavailable, a severe tradeoff for the added precision of the Apple Pencil. Please enable the Fountain Pen style with Apple Pencil. Thanks!

        • 2 pens instead of 1

          I have a simple idea to provide to pen icons above because during the lecture while changing color of writing pen takes some time . Having 2 pens we dont need to open color menu again and again to select the color. We can do it just by tapping

          • Resize writing

            Sometimes I write too big and need to make what I wrote smaller rather than deleting and rewriting it

                • Fully customisable colour palette

                  I want the full colour palette to be customisable entirely, not only the selected colours in the pen tool.

                  • A search engine to find highlighted text on iPad

                    In PDFs, normally I highlight the most important information, and at the end I want to see in a list, all the sentences that were highlighted.
                    Please make this happen for a next update!
                    Thanks

                      • Read out the words / sentences

                        I suggest that when we highlight the words / sentences, we can have an option to choose and read out the words / sentences as it can facilitate the studies of students.

                        • File search

                          In the global file search, it does not appear that it searches within the folders. So, it seems that you have to be in the folders themselves to search for key words or the documents themselves. In Notability, there is a function to see all files in the master list and search from there. That master list has all files that are categorized within the individual folders and dividers.

                            • Smart Marker

                              A new smart marker which's marks are automatically copied to a new page/document, where the marked text is listed in bullit points chronologically. Further, when using different colors the user would be able to categorize the notes easily and hence get his/her text work done more quikly.

                              • Problem with iCloud Sync

                                it's 1.1.11v and there's still a iCloud Sync problem! I bought this app for Mac and I thought I could work simultaneously with my Mac and iPad, but the sync in my iPad never ends. I work on my Mac and then tray to work on my iPad and, because the sync never ends, I cant open the PDF file in the iPad... So, if you don't fix this problem, this App doesn't work for anything!!

                                  • Todo management

                                    I take a ton of notes and produce a lot of todos from meetings, etc.

                                    OneNote had this feature 15 years ago whereby you would add a todo box next to the line of a handwritten note. It then had a todo notebook that would pull all of the todo boxes from all notebooks. I'm dying to have this feature. I've searched and searched and can't find the feature anywhere! Please please add this!!

                                    • Easy undo gesture

                                      A two finger double tap for undo and a three finger double tap for redo would be great. Quick and easy gesture for undoing and redoing

                                        goodnotes desktop version in order to edit files both on tablets and on desktop laptops and sync in between devices. many people in my medical school would appreciate and heavily use this app if it had these options.

                                          Its the deal breaker between going for goodnotes and choosing notability
