Importing: File Content Doesn't Appear

Some documents store content (images, text, media) in a way that Notability can't display. 

As a workaround, flattening the files before importing them into Notability should nudge things into order. 

To Flatten: Open the PDF in "PDF Expert" and when sharing the file choose "Flattened copy" and a share screen should appear for you to send the document to Notability.

If you have a Mac, you can use these steps to make a new PDF that shows the annotations:

  1. Open a PDF in the built-in app named Preview.
  2. Click "File > Export as PDF..." from Preview's menu bar.
  3. Navigate to the folder where the new PDF should be saved.
  4. Click "Save".
  5. Open the new PDF in Notability.
