How to Publish and Unpublish a Note

Publish Your Notes to the Gallery

  1. To upload your own Note or Template to the Gallery, open the Note in Notability.
  2. Take a moment to review your notes. The Gallery is a public place—Is there private information in your notes? Does everything follow our community guidelines? We are dedicated to making the Gallery a safe space for everyone, and you can help by making sure your notes follow the rules.
  3. In the top left corner of the screen on Mac and iPad, you’ll see a Share button, which is a square with an arrow pointing upwards. Tap this button.
  4. In the “Share” menu, click “Publish to Gallery”.
    • If you don’t have an account yet, you’ll be prompted to create one.
  5. To help your Note be more discoverable, add a description, and up to 5 relevant tags.
  6. Click Publish Note, and you’re done! Remember, all Notes published to the Gallery are public, so be sure not to add any personal information you’d like to keep private.

Unpublish a Note from the Gallery

  1. In the Gallery tap on your profile icon in the top right hand corner and then press on “My Profile”
  2. All of the notes you have published are under the “Published” tab.
  3. On each of your published notes there is a cog wheel with an arrow pointing down, press this and you can either edit the note or unpublish it.
  4. Or you can press on the note, and then press the three dots to bring up the same option to edit or unpublish your note.

Notes can't be link shared and published to the Notability Gallery at the same time. You must un-share a note in order to publish it and vice versa.

If you have published a note and wish to edit it, you will first need to unpublish it, make any changes you wish and then publish it again.
