Creating & exporting outlines in GoodNotes

First method

  1. In the PDF overview window, tap on the down-facing arrow at the bottom of the page thumbnail.
  2. Add Page to outline.
  3. Enter the title for the outline item.
  4. Tap Add.

Second method

  1. From within the app’s workspace, tap on the three dots at the top far right corner of the top toolbar.
  2. Add This Page to Outline.
  3. Enter the title for the outline item.
  4. Tap Add.

To make sure the hyperlinks in your notebook are not deactivated, export your PDF as an editable PDF file.

  1. Tap Export.
  2. Tap Export All.
  3. Select PDF format for exporting.
  4. Tap PDF Data Format.
  5. Tap Editable and export your PDF.

The hyperlinks will work only in apps that support hyperlinks. If you export your notes as a flattened PDF, both hyperlinks and outlines in your document will be deactivated.

  1. Have you found a way to create an outline with multiple levels like you can sometimes find it in PDF-files?

    If you import such a pdf into goodnotes, the multilevel outline also works in goodnotes. I haven’t found a way to create such an outline myself though.
