GoodNotes supports the new iPad Pro models and the 2nd generation Apple Pencil starting with version 4.13.1.
The following Double Tap actions are currently supported in GoodNotes:
- Switch between current tool and eraser
- Switch between current tool and last used tool
- Show/hide color pallet of pen tool and highlighter tool
To set your preferred action, open the iOS Settings and navigate to the Apple Pencil menu in the left panel. You can choose one of the actions there and it will be the default Double Tap action for GoodNotes, too.

No. The new iPad Pros don’t support the 1st generation Apple Pencil.
Will you add more Double Tap actions to GoodNotes?
Yes, we’re planning to add custom Double Tap actions to GoodNotes. For the first release, we supported the default iOS Double Tap actions.
