          • Stop charging people that already purchased goodnotes!

            I paid for the original version of good notes. Now when I go to use it the program crashes all the time! When I looked for updates there are none. It doesn't exist anymore. Now you want me to pay more money to buy a new version! This is ridiculous!!!

                • Make more easier to zoom page with finger and canging eraser usable without finger touch

                  You have an incredible app I have ever used, the search engine is unbelievable. Please be aware you can be most amazing app only change a few things.

                  Many of your users wrote important part but you need to think about a few tiny change, please.

                  One of the important things is usable of the eraser with a finger. If you choose the eraser and if you try to make zoom page with your finger then you can erase your writing. The interesting thing is only the eraser is working with fingers so it can make like the pencil.

                  • Improve handwriting recognition

                    The app suddenly stopped recognizing handwritten words that it was able to search for and recognize before (within the same document/notebook). This search feature was the MAIN reason I chose this app over the others. I write a lot of my notes and being able to search through my handwritten notes for certain words/phrases is important. Please fix this or can you provide any light as to why the app is no longer producing results for my search function. Thank you.

                    • Fix iPad Pro highlight

                      When the Bluetooth option is turned off on the iPad Pro, highlighting does not work. If the pencil is not active, then allow normal highlighting with a stroke of the finger.

                        • Add Notebook to Homescreen

                          I am currently an iPad Pro user. I am using iPad for four years and tons of apps, not even one bringing the experience which is closer to the feel writing on a real notebook. I wish I could write on the iPad as soon as I unlock it and tap any notebook I want. Simply like a real notebook, flip open the cover and write on the paper with a pen, that's it! I tried to go fully paperless, and I am studying in college bringing my iPad Pro. I really wish you could allow us to add notebook…

                          • Hide tool bar when start writing

                            As a left hand, I always have trouble with the toolbar when write in the top of the sheet.
                            Would be perfect if we have an option to hide the toolbar when writing to avoid a miss touch in a button or even in a different document.
                            Every time I have to write in the top of the sheet, my hand position change documents or push a different button.
                            I`ve already changed the hand position in the option, but this doesn't help to avoid this situation.

                            • VERTICAL AND HORIZONTAL SCALE FOR TECHNICAL DRAWINGS

                              It would be very helpful adding a vertical and horizontal scale for technical drawings. (As you can see in the attached file)

                              The possibility of choosing different scales for each direction would be a great thing too.

                                    It would be nice that we could change the colour of the text in de textfield for every word and not only for the whole field

                                    • Save pdf passwords

                                      My Professor uses a long password on his pdfs. It would be nice to type it in once and store it for future use.

                                      • Rename document at import

                                        Some pdfs that I import have cryptic filenames. It would enhance the workflow when importing a lot of files by renaming them at import.
