🍩 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.

📸 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.

WMDS – Volume issues

There are at least 3 and maybe 4 different places to adjust the volume when viewing WMDS on the computer or ipad.

1. The speakers you are using.

2. The computer – on Windows, click the volume icon on the bottom right. Make sure things are not muted and the volume is all the way up.

3. There also may be some hardware buttons that mute/unmute the audio and adjust the volume.

4. ONSCREEN, there is yet ANOTHER volume control!

At the bottom of the video window, you should see this. Click it.wmds controls

Slide the volume slider to Max.
