But wait, what is a Dark Mode Goodnotes PDF?
So, if you’re new to the world of dark mode digital planning, it’s essentially a PDF with black pages and white text.
It works exactly like a light mode PDF would but it’s made with darker pages so that it’s easier on the eyes.
This works perfectly for when you decide to set your iPad to dark mode and you’re using Goodnotes in dark mode too!
What’s great is the fact that you can write on the pages using the white ink and highlighters. Plus, digital stickers in dark mode look amazing too.
What’s included in this FREE dark mode digital notebook?
In the Bold Visionary dark mode Digital notebook sample, you get 6 divider sections which have been left blank for you to customise.
These are hyperlinked so you can access them at any time.
You can also access your divider sections from your contents page which can be accessed at any time by clicking on the ‘burger menu’ or index.
The contents page has index buttons which can be written on and labelled however you choose.
Then, when you toggled your pen off, you can click any of these buttons and be taken to that particular section.
This notebook comes with 3 sample paper templates. They are lined, dotted and a checklist.
You can access these via the paper menu icon on your tabs. Then, simply click on the paper template button to be taken to that paper type!
How does a Digital Notebook work?
If you’ve never used a digital notebook before, it looks almost exactly like a paper notebook but there are a few significant differences.
Firstly, unlike a paper notebook, you’ll be clicking on linked tabs to ‘flip’ through the pages.
Although it feels a little alien at first, it’s actually a real time saver! Because you can get anywhere you’d like to go in your notebook in just a few clicks.
Also, unlike a traditional paper notebook, digital notebook dividers and their sections are left completely blank.
This means that to start using your digital notebook you will need to copy and paste your paper templates into your divider sections to start using them.
Although it takes a little time, it’s actually amazing as you can customise your notebooks and the pages around the page types you like.
You can then duplicate those pages as many times as you like too – so you almost have infinite pages which you can use or recycle. Leaving no waste.
How do I transfer the dark mode digital notebook into my Goodnotes app?
Ready to start using your free dark mode digital notebook? Awesome!
Firstly, make sure that you have downloaded the PDF to your iPad or Tablet.
If you’ve downloaded it from the freebie library, this will be in your ‘files’. The location will be wherever you have set your downloads to go!
Open up the PDF and then click the ‘Share’ icon in the top right hand corner. From here, you’ll get a drop down of apps.
Make sure you choose Goodnotes, Noteshelf or your favourite note taking app on the menu (you may have to scroll over a little).
Then, when you have selected Goodnotes, click on ‘Import as New Document’.
You should then have transferred your FREE notebook and can start using it!
How do I copy and paste pages in Goodnotes?
So, once you have your dark mode digital notebook transferred, make sure the pen is toggled off so you can start clicking on the tabs.
You can then start labelling your divider sections and exploring all of the sections of your notebook.
Once you’re ready, head to the paper templates by clicking on the paper tab at the top right hand side of the digital notebook.
Choose which paper template you’d like to start using and then click on the three dots at the top right of the Goodnotes app.
Once you’ve done that, head to the divider section that you’d like to start populating with pages.
While you’re on the divider page itself, head up to the ‘Add Page’ icon in Goodnotes. Then, make sure that you have the toggle set to ‘After’.
Once you’re here on the list there will be an option to ‘Paste Page’. Click on that and now you have your notebook page pasted and ready to use. You won’t lose any links either.
Then, you can duplicate this page again by heading to ‘Add Page’ and then selecting ‘Current Template’.
Note: adding pages into your digital notebook will be fine but deleting pages will break links! Make sure to save a copy somewhere incase you break your hyperlinks.
