VoodooPad is a great resource for typing stuﬀ out, but what about when you have
something on your computer that you want to import? Well...learn more below!
There are quite a few diﬀerent ways to bring things into your VoodooPad document.
Copy and paste is the most common way of bringing something into your document.
Most of the time it is easiest to copy things from email or websites and paste it into
your VoodooPad document. The same thing can be applied to images as well.
Pasting puts the content into the page you are currently on, and if deleted it all goes
away. If you have pasted an image that you would like to edit later on, please read
the page on VoodooPad Edit Images.
• Select some text in another application.
• Choose Edit ▸ Copy (⌘C).
• Go to your VoodooPad document and click on the area you would like to paste
the information into.
• Choose Edit ▸ Paste (⌘V).
Dragging a File into the Work Area
An easy way to bring things into VoodooPad is to simply drag and drop them in. For
image ﬁle types you will get the option to Paste or Link. If VoodooPad cannot paste
the ﬁle in, it will automatically link it. You can also drag in a whole bunch of ﬁles which
will all be linked at once.
Linking does not copy the ﬁle into the VoodooPad document, so be sure not to
delete the original. Clicking the link will do the same thing as double clicking the
documents' icon in Finder. You can move the ﬁle around and VoodooPad will ﬁnd it
Once a ﬁle is linked, every time you type the ﬁle name, VoodooPad will link to that ﬁle.
You can check out what you have linked by choosing Window ▸ Palettes ▸ Info ▸
Document and looking at the box that says Files & URLs next to it.
Important things to know:
• When dragging in a PDF ﬁle to VoodooPad, it will respond diﬀerently depending
on whether the ﬁle is a single page or multiple pages. If the PDF is a single
page, you will be given the option to either paste or link to the ﬁle. If the PDF is
multiple pages, VoodooPad will automatically link to the ﬁle. If you would like a
single page or multi-page PDF imported into your document then you must
hold down the option key while dragging the ﬁle into the VoodooPad.
