When the Magnification Window is showing then left and right margins will be drawn– these are
used to inform the auto-advance operation. You can touch and drag on the margins (in the top part
of the screen) to adjust their positions.
Find the Select Button on the toolbar:
This tool allows you to touch the screen and drag a rectangle around a selection of drawing objects,
(handwriting, text, images etc.). When selected, control points will be drawn around the selected
lines/writing. Red control points allow you to scale the selection; whilst the blue button lets you
rotate the selection. Touching and dragging within the control points, but not on them, lets you
move the selection.
Select tool options
Both tools require you to draw a shape around the objects you want to select. You can choose in the
setting if this shape needs to ‘Enclose’ or just ‘Overlap’ the object to be selected. If you enable the
‘Mode from direction’ option then whether you enclose or overlap will be derived from the direction
in which you draw the selection shape: Left to right will infer an the ‘overlap’ mode.
Touching and holding within the selection region will display the ‘Edit’ menu. The primary entries are
‘Cut’, ‘Copy’ and ‘Paste’; other entries can be added depending on what is selected. Choosing Cut or
Copy, will transfer the selection into the clipboard. Now if you touch and hold again, the Edit Menu
will pop up again, this time with ‘Paste’ showing. If you choose paste the selected objects will be
placed at the position you touched on, and will be left selected so that they can easily be positioned
as necessary. You can paste onto the same page, a different page or even a different document. You
can even paste into other apps, assuming that they have been written in the standard way. The
selected entities will be converted into a transparent image, and this image will be available to the
external app. Similarly, if you cut or copy an image from another app, you will be able to paste it into
ZoomNotes in the same way.
If you copy text from another app, you can paste it into ZoomNotes and a new text object will be
created which contains the copied text.
