iAnnotate Tips & Tricks!

Want to get the most out of iAnnotate? Here are a few tips and tricks to help you take advantage of all the cool things iAnnotate 4 has to offer!


You can view iAnnotate differently depending on how you tap! One finger tap gets rid of your tabs, while tapping with three fingers gets rid of both the tabs and the toolbar!

Scrolling with two fingers is another helpful gesture! Select from pencil, highlighter, underline, or strikeout. Then, mark something up, use two fingers to scroll down to another page or section, and wha-la! The tool is temporarily suspended to allow you to move throughout the document. When you get to the section you want, continue to markup without having to re-select the tool!

Two Document View

Ever wish that you could work on two documents at the same time? Well, you can! Two Document View enables you to multitask intelligently. Utilize all of the same features used to markup and manage your documents in regular view, to work simultaneously.

Drag and Drop

This is a feature only available on iOS 11 and iPad. By tapping and holding down a file, you have the ability to drag it to another storage repository! Need to move multiple files? No problem! Keep your finger pressed on the first file, then use your other hand to click on each additional file you'd like to move.

Need to move files out of iAnnotate entirely? You can do that, too! Drag your file, or files, to the bottom of the screen and use your other hand to swipe up to reveal the bottom bar that shows your apps. Then, simply hover the files over the app you'd like to move them to.
