Rearrange notes on a page

  • Click the top edge of the note container that you want to move, and then drag the container to a new location on the page.


    • To move a paragraph, move the pointer over the paragraph handle until the pointer becomes a four-headed arrow, and then drag the paragraph to its new location on the page. If the paragraph that you move contains indented paragraphs, the indented paragraphs are moved with the selected paragraph. To select only the top paragraph, click its handle again.

    • You can merge note containers by pressing SHIFT while dragging one note container over another.

    • By default, note containers and other items on a page snap to an invisible grid when they are moved around on the page. This makes it easier to line up note containers, images, and other elements on the page. You can override this setting temporarily by holding down ALT while you drag a note container.
