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.

Using Google Keep for Research on the Web

Full credit for the source at the bottom of this article.

When you are using the Web for research, it is often easier and faster to use a desktop machine, with your Gsuite account and the Keep extension installed in your browser. Note that the process detailed below does NOT work on a device [tablet or phone].


When it comes to fast, informal online research, the Google Keep Chrome extension could be the ticket. Just save a link—along with a label and note—then export your Keep notes to Google Docs.

Three Google tools—Chrome, Google Keep and Google Docs—streamline the web research process. The Google Keep Chrome extension, specifically, lets you save, annotate and categorize web links, then export a selected set of saved Google Keep notes to a Google Doc.

The Keep extension eliminates the need to select a site’s URL, copy it, paste it into a document, add a note, then return to browse additional search results.

To streamline the whole process, make sure you have Chrome installed and are signed in with your Google account. The steps below cover how to install the Keep extension (a one-time process) as well as the routine research sequence.

Web research: Search, review, annotate, label and save

As you search and browse the web, anytime you want to save a web link, select the Keep extension. This automatically captures the URL for the page, creates a Keep note with the link, and places the cursor in the Keep Note field. Add any relevant text in the note (e.g., why this link is relevant, important items about the page or any commentary on the contents). Optionally, you may add a title to your note.

Screenshot that shows the Keep extension selected on an HP printer detail page, with the link in the top portion of the note, text added by the author in the note "About $650, but not currently in stock" and a title also typed in, "HP Color LaserJet Pro". Two labels added: All-in-one and Printers.
Select the Keep extension to create a note with the link to the web page. Optionally, you may add text, labels, and a note title.

You can use labels to categorize Keep notes. Select the label icon, then either type text to create a new label or select a previously added label from the list that displays. You may apply more than one label to a Keep note (e.g., for printer research, I might apply not only a “printers” label, but also an “all-in-one” label for devices with a scanner).

On every web page you want to save, repeat the process:
Select the Keep icon and add text and labels.

Go to keep.google.com to review your saved links and notes.
Select from the list of labels (displayed on the left) to filter your Keep notes and only display those with the selected label.

Screenshot that shows Printers label selected at keep.google.com, with two of three notes selected.
At keep.google.com on the web, select a label to show only notes with that label.

You can export a set of Keep notes into a single Google Doc.

There are several ways to filter and select notes.
–> Select a label (along the left) to display all notes with that label.
-> Press Ctrl+A to select all displayed notes.
-> Or, move the cursor over a note, then click near the circle with a check mark in it (in the upper-left section of each note) to select or deselect it.

Once you have selected the set of Keep notes to export, select the More menu (the three-vertical dot menu in the upper right) and choose Copy To Google Docs .

Choose Open Doc (in the lower left) to display the Google Doc created from your selected Keep notes.

At this point, your Google Doc contains the links, notes and titles from your selected Google Keep notes. Now you can edit your Google Doc as needed.

After you have chosen notes to export, select the More menu (three vertical dots in the upper right), then Copy To Google Docs.
Screenshot that shows the "Copied to Google Docs" message (lower left of the screen) with an arrow pointing to the Open Doc link.
Select Open Doc to access the Google Doc created from your selected Keep notes.
Screenshot shows four URLs to printer-related pages, with text notes added by the author to three of the web pages, and one note title added.
The resulting Google Doc includes complete URL details and links from the saved Keep notes, along with any text and titles you added.
