Create Drawings

From the Butterfly view, tap the + below the currently selected Page to insert a blank Page to the right.

From the Grid view, tap the + . If you are scrolled all the way to the top of the grid, the new page will be inserted into the first position of the journal. Otherwise, the new page will be inserted at the end of the grid.

 

Create Notes

From the Butterfly view, you can add a note to the current page by tapping the '...' button and selecting 'Add Note'.

If the current page has a drawing on it, the note will appear as a small square in the upper right corner.

If the current page does not have any drawing on it, the note will appear as a half sheet.

Rotate Pages

From the Grid view, tap the Select icon and then tap to select the page you wish to rotate. Paper Pro subscribers can select multiple pages.

 

Delete Pages

Reorder Pages

You can reorder pages in the Grid View. Tap and hold on a Page to lift and drag the page to a new position in the Journal.

You cannot reorder pages in the Butterfly view. If you are using an iOS 11 Drag and Drop compatible device, you can tap and hold in the Butterfly view to drag the current page to another app. However, this does not allow you to reorder in this view. Reordering in the Butterfly view is a feature coming soon.
