You can start from scratch inside the app by creating a new notebook or planner, as the app has a few options in terms of paper styles. But if you have a digital planner with hyperlinked tabs like I have then you want to import a new document.

When you click on ‘import’ a window will open. Locate your file inside your device from there, it can also be stored in the cloud. When you find it, just click on the file and it will open inside GoodNotes.

2. open file from the folder

The second way to add a new digital planner to GoodNotes is to first locate your file.

It might be located on your downloads or photo folder. In my case it’s on my one drive.

Now you must select the document by tapping and holding. Then click ‘share’ at the top.
