  1. Stamp

    I love the app! It's the best Notes app ever. I would like to have a stamp function. For example with a logo and a signature, which you can insert and design yourself. I complete a lot of pdf's sent out and must sign this and stamp. As a stamp, I always add a picture of the additional function. Goes, would be with the function however much easier.

    • Show two pages at a time

      I’d like to see an update with the ability to open two pages adjacent side by side, like Microsoft Word, for example, to have a continuous view of the current page and the previous, making it more like a traditional notebook for a better experience in overall view of the notes i’m Currently taking.

      Thanks!

      • Show two pages in landscape orientation

        In landscape orientation, there's enough space to show two pages of your document at once instead of just one. It would be really useful if this was implemented.
        I know there is a split screen feature planned to have two different documents open at once, but what I want is much simpler - just show the upcoming page next to the current one if there's enough room.

        • Writing tools shortcuts

          If there could be a tray where I can add 4-5 various colors of pens and highlighter mimicking a real physical object that I can just pickup and write. For example, I could add a red colored pen with fine thickness, a black colored pen with bold thickness, yellow highlighter pen with certain thickness and automatic straight line.

          In that way I can jump between each tools and options without having to turn on/off auto-straight-line function or adjust the thickness every time I change a writing tool.

          You can let this function to be optional that users can toggle on/off…

          • 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.

            • Do, Undo, and other functions with keyboard

              To change pen, eraser, highlighter, and lasso tool, I need to click botton upper side of the ipad screen but it is irritating and tedious work. If I can do 'undo' by pressing ctrl+z as in window or 'h' to change pen to highlighter, Movement of hand will be significantly reduced.

                • Add print margins. Include front/back and two-pages-per-sheet front/back print

                  The printed page has no margin for binding.
                  Please add margins. Best, mirror margins for front/back print

                  Printing, two GoodNotes pages fit well in one A-size or A4-size sheet.
                  Please include the option of margins for this, with front/back option
                  (4 GoodNotes pages in a front/back physical sheet)

                  • Resize writing

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

                    • Ability to erase or undo on the spot.

                      It would be great if one could erase or undo while writing on the page by simply scratching or drawing a line over the character or words similar to the "MyScript Nebo" app. Another option could by a double-tap with two fingers anywhere on the page to undo. While taking notes from long lectures or presentations I find it less practical to look up and move my stylus to the top of the page to hit the undo button or switch to the erase tool. This add-on feature alone will make note taking on Goodnotes a pleasurable experience and bring…

                      • Bugs of Goodnotes

                        Sometimes after I modified some PDF files, the original one will appear the next day. I think it is a bug in Goodnotes. It is very painful when I have hundreds of files. Please update the software as soon as possible.

                              • I cannot copy and paste words in ios 11.

                                I really love this app. I always have thankful to the developers that made this app. I found one big error on this app.

                                I use ipad pro 10.5 with ios 11. I cannot copy and paste the words.
                                When I cut or copy the sentences, and try to paste, it doesn’t work.
                                Could you confirm and fix this error? Thank you so much.

                                • Let me choose the name of the file I'm saving to

                                  When saving a document it doesn't seem possible to choose the filename. I cant save it with the same name of a previous versio; an annoyinh (1) is automatically added to the name of the document.

                                  • Change thickness while using scissor tool

                                    When using the scissor tool, I would like to not only be able to change the color, but also the thickness of the selected drawing.

                                    • Add scan-as-PDF import capability

                                      Add the ability to import a PDF page by "scanning" a document from camera, similar to many other PDF scanners in the App Store today. Include the ability to trim the margins, save in grayscale, B/W, etc. This would save one more step from saving my written notes into GoodNotes. Thanks.
