The drawing screen

You can set up your new document by tapping on the menu button in the top right corner of the screen. You can set a name for your document here, set the paper size and so on. If you associate tags with your current document you can filter by a tag in the overview screen.

Document options


You can start drawing right away. If you have a device with a stylus you might want to open the pen settings Pen first to check "Stylus only" to avoid drawing accidential lines with your finger. This option is hidden in the second tab of the pen settings popup.

Zooming and moving

You can zoom in or out with the "pinch gesture". Use two fingers and move them closer together or further apart. To move the canvas you have to move two fingers closely together.

Reset the zoom in the settings.


If you want to exit and save your work just hit the "back" button. Your work will automatically be saved if you leave the drawing screen. If you don't want to leave tap "save now" in the menu.
