- You can import a PDF into Squid as a new note and easily write, draw, and markup on the PDF just like a standard note. A PDF is displayed as the background of a note in the original PDF format, so zooming in re-renders the PDF (as well as all your handwritten notes) in high quality. If you want to share your marked up PDF note with others, simply export it as a new PDF or set of images. Exporting a PDF note as a new PDF preserves the original PDF while adding all your handwriting and markups to it!
- Please note that your notes will be lost when you perform a factory reset, so make sure to back them up! You can create a local backup in the Squid settings.
- Go to the Squid settings and tap Backup and restore
- Tap Local backup
- Tap Create backup
- If the navigation drawer is not showing, tap the three horizontal lines in the upper left corner to open the drawer
- Choose the desired Drive account
- Navigate to the location within Drive where you want to save the backup file
- Tap Save
If you are creating a backup before factory resetting your device, make sure Drive has completed the upload before doing so. To do this, open the Drive app after completing the above steps. It should show a progress indicator with the upload/sync status.
