Drag and Drop on iPad and iPhone

Home Help 04 Make Best Use of SnipNotes Drag and Drop on iPad and iPhone

Important: This functionality requires an iPad or iPhone running iOS 11 and SnipNotes 2.6 or higher

Drag and Drop is an intuitive and fast way to interact with your notes. SnipNotes supports Drag and Drop in the following areas:

Import text and images (iPad only)

Put SnipNotes side-by-side with another app, e.g. Safari. Long-press on an image or a paragraph in the other app until it hovers under your finger. You can use another finger to select additional elements. Drag these objects onto the list of notes in SnipNotes and lift your finger. SnipNotes will create a new note for each element.

Export notes (iPad only)

Put SnipNotes side-by-side with another app, e.g. Apple Notes. Long-press on a note in the list until it hovers under your finger. You can use another finger to select additional notes. Drag these notes into the other app until you see a little plus icon. Lift your finger and your notes will be copied into the other app.

Move notes between categories

You can use Drag and Drop to quickly move multiple notes into another category or into the trash. Drag them onto the category icon in the upper left corner. Hold your finger for a second until the category picker opens up. Drop your notes onto a category to move your notes there.

Merge, share or delete notes

Instead of using the multi-select button in the lower left corner, you can access the same features with Drag and Drop. Start to drag a note and you will see a little arrow button in the upper right corner of the notes list. Select additional notes and drop them onto the arrow button. From there you can select to merge, share or delete them. For deleting your notes you can also drag them onto the trash button in the lower right corner of the screen and lift your finger.
