  • # Heading 1
  • ## Heading 2
  • ### Heading 3
  • #### Heading 4
  • ##### Heading 5
  • ###### Heading 6
  • --- Horizontal rule
  • > Quote
  • ``` Code block ```

Export notes

Notes can be exported as markdown files. To do so, tap the more_vert icon in the bottom right corner and select "Save".

Add notes

A new instance of the notes widget can be added by tapping the more_vert in an existing notes widget and selecting "New note".

Dismiss notes

Notes can be dismissed by tapping the more_vert icon in the bottom right corner and selecting "Dismiss". If you dismiss a note, the widget will be removed, unless it is the last instance of a note widget. In this case the note widget's content will be cleared instead.
