Changing file format and destination folder

  1. To change file format, destination, or backed up subjects, tap   in auto-backup. First, you may choose to create a folder called Notability in Google Drive .
  2. Then choose that folder to back up Notability to via auto-backup.  Auto-backup will retain your divider and subject organization in the back up to Google Drive.


    • Select a destination folder.
    • Choose file format. PDF will be viewable on any device.
    • Pick which subjects to backup. All non-password protected subjects will automatically backup unless changed. To backup a password protected subject, tap it and enter the passcode.
    • Tap  when finished.
