In Goodnotes 6, you can now use the Eyedropper to select custom colors to add to your presets. Eyedropper color picker works with pen, shapes and highlighter and you can save any color in your document.
How to use Eyedropper
The Eyedropper can be accessed in the same way you access other custom colors.
1. Select a preset color on the Toolbar and tap it again to bring up further options.
2. Tap the final color circle in the pop-up manu to add a new custom color.
3. Choose the Eyedropper in the top-right corner of the pop-up window.
You will then see the Eyedropper appear on the page of your open document. Hold and drag this to your chosen area, then tap on it to add the color you’ve selected to your presets.
Where can I pick colors from?
Colors can be picked from anywhere inside your document. While this means you cannot take the Eyedropper outside of Goodnotes, you can use it to pick colors from imported items such as pictures or PDFs.
Custom colors are not available for the Text Tool or Full Page Typing, as such the Eyedropper Tool is also unavailable in these modes.
This tool is not available for GoodNotes 5 and can only be used on Goodnotes 6 in iPhone, iPad and Mac.
