  • By default, Notability stores all notes on a user's device. If iCloud Syncing is enabled, notes are stored on the iCloud account.

Working in a Note

  • How to: Move, Edit, and Delete Images, Text boxes, and Sticky Notes
    1. While using the text tool, tap an item with one finger to select it.
    2. Alternatively, tap an image with two fingers while using another tool. This keeps you from selecting the item while you write on it.
    3. To move the item, tap and drag it.
    4. To resize the item, tap and drag one of its corners.
    5. To delete the item, tap "Delete" from the menu above it.


Notability is finely calibrated for the Apple Pencil (gen 1 & 2). 

Notability's built-in palm detection and variable-width ink allows you to write with any Bluetooth stylus. At the moment, the app does not support pressure-sensitivity or hardware buttons for Bluetooth styluses other than Apple Pencil.

You can also write with your finger.
