Layers are mostly used for drawing. Apart from the Background Layer and the Main Layer, you can add three additional layers to meet your creative needs. The Main Layer is mainly used for handwriting. It’s the only layer where you can set titles and keywords for notes, create links and calendar events.
1. Add or delete layers
Tap the plus icon to add a new layer and the trash box icon to delete it.
2. Show or hide layers
To toggle a layer's visibility, tap the open eye icon next to the layer name to hide it and the closed eye icon to show it.
3. Reorder layers
If you have more than two layers, you can move a layer forward or backward using the arrow icon. The Background Layer cannot be moved.
4. Rename layers
You can rename the layers you add. Select the layer you want to rename and tap the edit icon to change the layer name.
Templates can be helpful when you need to add structure and organization to your note-taking process. Your Supernote comes with more than 20 pre-built templates for writing, sketching and other specialized needs.
1. Set a template for your notebook
- When the toolbar is docked on the left/right side of the screen, tap the Templates icon directly. (If it's docked on the top/bottom of the screen, you will need to tap the three-dot More menu icon first.)
- On the Templates page, simply tap on a template to apply it to the notebook.
2. Add templates to Favorites
- Tap the star icon underneath the templates you want to favorite.
- Tap the Favorites tab and you will see the templates you have favorited.
3. Set a default template for the next new notebook
In the notebook you've created, you can go to the three-dot More menu > Preferences > Default Template to set a template as the default for the next new notebook. It will be applied as soon as the new notebook is created.
4. Use PDFs as templates
5. Use images as templates
Starting with the release of Chauvet 2.10.25, we have removed the size limit on image templates, providing you with more freedom and flexibility for customizing note templates.
Previously, the dimensions of the PNG images had to be set at 1404 px * 1872 px in order for them to be used as note templates. This restriction no longer applies.
With that said, we still recommend setting the image dimensions at 1404 px * 1872 px to ensure they fit the screen perfectly. Using dimensions with deviations may not yield the desired results where the image templates could not cover the whole screen. If the image size is smaller than 1404 px * 1872 px, the image will not fill the full screen when used as a template and will retain its original size and be aligned centrally. If the image size is larger than 1404 px 1872 px (for example, a 2000 px 2000 px image), both the width and height will be scaled down proportionally to fit the screen. Our recommended width/height ratio is ¾. Images larger than 1404 px * 1872 px but with the exact width/height ratio will fit the screen perfectly.
Note: Apart from PNG images, we now support using JPG, JPEG and WEBP images as note templates.
