Studying Preinstalled GoodNotes Paper
In this tutorial, we will take a look at the preinstalled squared paper design in GoodNotes. The steps below were done in GoodNotes on the Desktop. But you can use the mobile version of GoodNotes.

  1. To start a new GoodNotes notebook, click the Plus icon in the Documents window and choose Notebook from the pop-up menu (see screenshot).

  2. In the New Notebook window, select the Cover thumbnail to display the Cover options. Click the No Cover option. Now select the Paper thumbnail to display those options. Click the Blank option (see screenshot).

  3. With the Paper thumbnail still selected, verify that the notebook template size is set to Letter. If not, click on the line under the thumbnail to open the Templates menu. Choose Letter from the menu (see screenshot).

  4. If the notebook layout orientation is set to Landscape, click again and set to Portrait (see screenshot).

  5. Now we will set the paper option to Squared Paper.

  6. With the Paper thumbnail selected, you will see a list of paper options. From the Essentials section, choose Squared Paper (see screenshot).

  7. At the top, name the new notebook Template Kit Testing and click Create (see screenshot).

  8. A new notebook will open and have one paper, which is the Squared Paper (see screenshot).

    Now we will export the Squared Paper design as a PDF.

  9. With the notebook open, right-click on the Squared Paper thumbnail on the left and choose Export (see screenshot).

  10. From the Export Selected Page window, click the PDF option. From the Options list at the bottom, set the following options and click the Export button (see screenshot).

    Include Page Background
    Include Annotation
    PDF Data Format set to Editable

  11. Save the PDF into a new folder on your desktop or favorite place on your computer. Give the new PDF the same name as the page design, which is Squared Paper.

In the next tutorial, we will open the Squared Paper PDF and study the layout details.
