Sync GoodNotes documents between iPhones/iPads/Macs

Synchronizing GoodNotes documents between GoodNotes 5 on your iOS devices on Mac requires iCloud. When your device has an active internet connection, your changes will sync across all devices that are logged into the same Apple ID.

To set up iCloud sync for GoodNotes, please do the following on all your devices:

  1. Sign into the same Apple ID.
  2. Enable iCloud Drive:
    • iPadOS/iOS: Open the Settings app on your device, go to Apple ID > iCloud, enable "Sync this iPad". Tap "Apps syncing to iCloud Drive" and also enable "GoodNotes" in the list.
    • macOS: Open System Settings, go to Apple ID > iCloud, enable "Sync this Mac". Click "Apps syncing to iCloud Drive" and also enable "GoodNotes" in the list.
  3. Open GoodNotes, tap the Gear icon in the top-right corner of the Library view > Settings > iCloud Settings and enable "Use iCloud."

In some cases, app developers can't help with iCloud-related issues, which is why we recommend reaching out to iCloud Support as well.
