Last Updated: Mar 12, 2015 01:35PM PDT

PDFs can be imported in four ways --

1) email attachments
2) the web
3) other apps
4) Google Drive, Dropbox, Box, & other cloud services

1. For PDF email attachments: Tap the PDF attachment to preview it from the email. Then tap 'Open in' in the upper right hand corner. This will display a list of apps to open the PDF. Select Notability and you'll be able start a new note or add the PDF to an existing note.

2. For PDFs found on the web: Once you're viewing the PDF in the Safari browser, tap anywhere in it, then tap 'Open in' in the upper right hand corner. This will display a list of apps to open the PDF. Select Notability and you'll be able start a new note or add the PDF to an existing note.

3. For importing PDFs from other apps: Each app often has a unique way to sharing with a PDF through the 'Open in' feature. Check with the app to see how it's done. 

4. For importing PDFs from a cloud service: From within Notability, tap the import button; located next to compose in the upper right hand corner of the library and looks like an arrow entering a box. Then pick the cloud service and choose the file. You'll be able to create a new note or add the PDF to an existing note.
