  1. I want finger gesture operations

    I want to be able to operate by using "apple pencil" and "finger" different function. When using "pen" with apple pencil, range selection (or eraser) with one finger, "undo" with two finger tap etc. I think this app gets more operability that will be improved, I hope you will improve the tool! Thank you!

      • Pen Tip Icon & Laser Pointer

        I use GoodNotes (MAC version) with a Wacom tablet. I hope GoodNotes can add a small icon (e.g. a little pencil) to the pen tip while handwriting so that users are very clear where he is going to write.

        Another thing I want is a laser pointer so that I can point to some important points while screen recording. This will be very useful for teachers/ presenters.

        • Ability to add more page/margin size to existing pages in pdfs (i.e. textbook pdfs) thus creating more room for note taking

          The ability to take an existing pdf (for example a textbook) and expand the margins/page size on that specific page so that you could have more space to write/ take notes in the margins

          • Sidebar for folder/notebook heirarchy

            Switching between notebooks via a drop-down is clunky. It'd be really nice and defintiely boost usability to have a toggleable sidebar to view folders or other organization hierarchies.

            • Spreadsheet

              It would be really nice to be able to add a spreadsheet function.
              Something simple where you could select the number of column and line and different lineweight ! That would be so much easier then having to switch between goodnotes and excel/word and add it in pdf which are not editable afterward on goodnotes !

              Thank you ! Btw I'm using goodnotes and I love it !

                  • Stamp tool for emoji/shapes

                    You could add on the iPad a stamp tool next to the writing ones, easily accesible to add predifined shapes and emojis easy and fast, not having to go through adding an image etc etc. Right now to add an emoji you have to switch to text then switch the keyboard then resize the text image, it should be faster since emojis are such a big part of how we express ourselves now.

                    • When highlighter overlaps don't darken the overlapped area

                      Have an option in the highlighter options section to either be darker in the overlapped areas or not to darken the overlapped areas (consistant shade).

                      You will blow Notability out of the water once your upcoming additions are implemented!

                      It's already a top 5 app that makes the 12.9" iPad useful. Thanks!

                                • Ability to Update a bookmark

                                  I often work with large documents where I read several pages from several different places. I use bookmarks to find those individual places, but when I finish reading those several pages, I have to delete and re-create the bookmark.

                                  I would like the option to be able to left swipe on the bookmark and in addition to delete which is in red, have an "update" link in blue which Will update the bookmark to the new Current Location. This will save me a lot of time each day.

                                  Thanks!

                                        • Automatic scrolling options

                                          Please make an option so that the Autoadvance smoothly advances to the right so that the writing hand can stay in same place, rather than the current feature where the text box "jumps" forward.
                                          Penultimate has an excellent example of this, and makes writing much quicker and seamless.
