Line Snapping

To help make crisp designs and shapes, straight lines behave uniquely when made.

  • Straight lines automatically connect to nearby straight lines.
  • Straight lines snap to lines and intersections in Notability's grid papers.
  • Straight lines snap to 45-degree increments to make specific angles.

After you draw a straight line, it behaves like any other handwriting. If you use Notability's grid paper, however, the line will snap to the grid's lines and intersections when you move the line with the scissors.
