How To Change Cover In ZoomNotes For Digital Planners

Want to learn how to change cover in ZoomNotes? In this quick tutorial I’ll show you how to add a cover to your digital planner or digital notebook in ZoomNotes.

Today I’m going to show you how to change the covers of any document inside ZoomNotes.

When you import a document to ZoomNotes, the cover will show the last page you visited inside that document.

Every time you click on a different page of that document, the cover will change. This may not be ideal when you are using ZoomNotes for Digital Planning.

Luckily it is easy to tweak things a little and create a permanent cover for your Digital Planner, regardless of what page you’re working on.

You can watch the video below to follow along or read the quick tutorial to learn how you can change cover in Zoomnotes.

How To Add Covers To Documents In ZoomNotes

So let’s get started.

The first thing you will need to do to change the cover of your digital planner in ZoomNotes is to tap on the name of your document and then tap on ‘Properties‘.

Using this tool you can change the document name too. But what we want to do is to toggle this ‘has cover’ setting.

Turn it on and tap ‘done‘.

Next you have to set a cover to be the first page of your document.

To do this go on the ‘pages’ tab on the top right corner of the app screen.

Tap on the first page of your document and now insert a page before this first page.

With this new page you can simply type the text you want on your cover. But I always love to have a beautiful cover for my Digital Planner… because it makes me happy every time I go to open my planner.

Here’s how you can add one if you would like too.

To add an image if you have one ready in your photos folder, head to the top of the screen and the tool bar area. Tap ‘add images‘ icon and locate your image from your photo’s then tap to add it to your newly created cover page.

If you are like me however then you may have your cover on the cloud.

To get an image from the cloud you will need to split the view on your iPad to drag and drop that image inside ZoomNotes.

    To split the screen swipe up gently from the bottom, until the dock appears. I have my favorite folders here and my cloud application too where my all images are located. You may see your favorite apps or ones you have recently opened.

    If the app where your image is located isn’t showing here you will have to open the app for a few seconds. Then when you head back to the dock you will see it in your recently used apps at the right hand side of the dock.

    Gently hold on the app you want to use then drag and drop it to the other side of the screen. Now you can use both apps at the same time.

    Once you find the image you want inside the app, just drag and drop it into ZoomNotes.

    After it is imported you can distort swipe the image file to the side to get the full screen again.

    Now you will just need to resize the image to cover the whole first page of your planner. To do this tap on the ‘lasso‘ tool.

    Import a new cover to zoomnotes

    And now you will have a permanent planner page. If you every want to change this page (I love to change mine for different seasons) then just repeat the steps in this tutorial after the first page creation.

    Change the Cover In ZoomNotes

    If your digital planner or digital notebook already has the extra covers inside the document you don’t need to import anything.

    Just turn the setting ‘has cover’ on like we did before for the document you are using as your Digital Planner and then rearrange the pages to have your preferred cover in the first position of the document.

    This will then automatically set the cover.
