Creating and Editing Notes

Last Updated: Aug 06, 2013 01:17PM CDT
NoteSuite lets you combine typing, handwriting, sketches, photos, audio recordings, and to-dos together on any notes page. 

Outlining and Lists

  Tap the Bullets or Checkboxes buttons on your keyboard to create a list.

Tap the Indent button to create sub-lists under any bullet or checkbox.

Rearrange items in any list by holding down on its bullet (or checkbox) and dragging it where you'd like it to go.

Expand and contract sub-lists by tapping the adjacent triangles. This lets you hide distractions and focus on the parts of the list you're working with at the moment.


Write on the Writing Board to shrink your handwriting so it fits better on each page. 

The Writing Board is available whenever you're 
in Sketching mode. As you write, you'll see a green box appear. Advance the Writing Board by writing in this green box.


​The sketching tools let you create anything from a simple diagram to a beautiful illustration.

Choose from a variety of pens, sizes, and colors. The Opacity slider on the right side of the toolbar lessens the intensity of the colors, making it easy to blend multiple colors on a page.

  Scroll the page by dragging with two fingers simultaneously.

  Zoom into a page by pinching.

Images and Photos

Place images anywhere in a note by choosing "Open Photo Library" or "Take Photo" from the Add menu, or by pasting an image you've copied from elsewhere.  Feel free to sketch and type on top of images and then share these modified images through email, Dropbox, etc. 

NoteSuite lets you choose four ways text can wrap around an image you've placed in a note: 

Keep with Text: This keeps the image pinned to a specific line of text, so it stays with the text as it is edited.
Inline: This keeps the image anchored to a paragraph of text, so it moves up and down the page with the paragraph as the note is edited.
Square: This wraps the text around all four sides of an image.
Behind: This anchors the image to the page, so you can type and sketch on top of it.

Create To-dos

  Instantly add anything to your to-do lists while taking notes by tapping the Make To-do button. This allows you to create to-dos quickly and without distraction in meetings and lectures.

Feel free to include sub-lists within your note when making a to-do. NoteSuite will copy all of it to your to-do lists.

Record Audio

Record audio while taking notes by selecting "Record Audio" from the Add menu. 

NoteSuite synchronizes your audio recordings with each line of your notes, so it's easy to jump to a specific place in your recording. You can also add multiple recordings within a single note. Each additional recording is added to the end of the existing recordings.

 Tapping the Speaker icon on a page will cause whatever you recorded to begin playing back from the place in your audio recording that corresponds with what you were typing.

You can email audio you've recorded in a note by selecting the "Attach Audio Notes" button that appears in the Share>Email menu when an audio recording is present in a note.

Highlighting and Strike-through

To highlight or strike-through words in any note, first select the word by double-tapping on it (select more words by moving the selection handles). Then, choose "Highlight" or "Strike-through" from the menu that pops up. 

Spell Checking

NoteSuite automatically auto-corrects most misspelled words while you type. NoteSuite underlines misspelled words that haven't been auto-corrected in red. Double-tap on a misspelled word to see a list of suggestions.

Viewing a Note's Created Date

By default, NoteSuite displays the date your note was last modified in the upper right of the note. To change this to the date the note was created, tap on the date and choose "Created."

Change Fonts

  Apply a wide variety of fonts, sizes, styles, and colors to any text. Or, create Font Presets that apply a mixture of attributes together.

You can also adjust the size, font, and style of any type directly from your keyboard, as well.

Create a New Note

Create a new note by choosing "New Note" from the New Document menu.

Create a title for your note by typing the name in the title header at the top of the note. Move from the title into a note by pressing Return on your keyboard or just tapping anywhere in your note.
