Using Split Screen on Windows, Macs, iPads [and Chromebooks]

How to use keyboard shortcuts to make a split screen on macOS, iPadOS, Windows and Chrome OS. Lots of tasks would be easier if you had both apps on your screen side-by-side. For example, you can copy text from a website, then paste it into your Notability document or an email.

Words: Split Screen, centered above two white rectangles, with word "App 1" in center of left rectangle and "App 2" in center of right rectangle.

Windows:

Press Windows and either the left arrow or right arrow to move your app between different parts of the screen.

Then hit Windows-Tab to switch to the other app. Use the above keys to move the 2nd app into the position you want.

it is MUCH faster than dragging windows around with the mouse.

iPadOS:

If you have a keyboard designed for use with an iPad, press Globe key plus ctrl plus either the left arrow or the right arrow.

Then switch the second app with a tap or the App Library. Once selected , the apps will be onscreen next to each other.

Press the three-dots-menu for even more option. {CLICK HERE for more information about that.]

ANOTHER IDEA:

If you have a REALLY LONG document, open the same document up in two windows. That way each side can be set to view different parts of the document – that might be real handy when reading or writing.

MacOS:

The easiest way, according to the article, is to use a 3rd party app called Magnet. There is a manual way to do the same thing, according to these instructions.

ChromeOS:

alt + [ moves a window to the left (and, if pressed again, around the center of the screen), while  alt + ] moves a window to the right (and, if pressed again, around the center of the screen).

[Source: https://notability.medium.com/useful-how-to-tips-in-notability-2fdf1c6aa11a]

Click the links in each section for more details.

You’ll be surprised at what Notability can do…. that you didn’t know about!

Create Perfect Shapes

Draw any shape and hold the ink for a moment; watch as the shape snaps perfectly into place. You can also erase perfect shapes! Try this: Draw a circle, hold the ink down, then erase a circle from the center. Wa-la you’ve made a donut. Now add sprinkles!

Listen to Audio at the right pace

Adjust audio playback speed for your listening style. Audio speed options are: 0.7x, 1x, 1.25x, 1.5x, 2x.

Find ANYTHING in your notes

Search your handwriting (and convert it to text)*, typed text, pdf text, image text, and note titles.

Scan paper documents to import

It’s easy to scan and digitize your paper documents into PDFs or images by simply snapping a photo! Text in scanned documents and images is also searchable!

Import GIFS, photos, and more

Simply drag and drop GIFs, photos, and web clips from other applications like Safari or easily add media from the Notability note view.

Create Custom Colors

Use the color picker to find and save your perfect shades and create your ink palette (you can save up to 32 custom colors).

Edit Audio Recordings

Trim, merge, split, reorder and rename audio recordings. Fine-tune audio by adjusting equalizer in playback mode or Voice Boost. Voice Boost allows you to amplify distant voices that may otherwise sound muffled.

Use Presentation mode

Present a note on an external display in full-screen without any distracting toolbars and menus, and use all of Notability’s tools to interact with your audience. There’s even a laser pointer! Pro tip: Use Multi-Note while in Presentation Mode to view an additional note that remains hidden from the audience.

Multitask with MultiNote

Open and work on two notes at once. Simply drag and drop a note from the Note Switcher into the note editing area to view two notes side by side. You can drag the middle spacer to adjust the note size.

Take notes alongside another app

When Notability is open, drag and drop another app from the iPad dock onto the screen to view both apps side by side.
