How to Move Among Notes on Your iPad - dummies

By Dwight Spivey

You can move among notes in the Notes app on your iPad. Suppose you have created a grocery list and then remember that you jotted down information about the school’s bake sale in another note. You easily can look up the date and the number of cupcakes needed on one note and add your baking supplies to your grocery list on another note. Follow these steps:

  1. Tap the Notes app icon on the Home screen to open Notes.
  2. With the Notes list displayed (see the previous task), tap a note to open it.
  3. To move among notes, tap the Notes button in the top-left corner and then tap another note in the list to open it. Of course, if you have a lot of notes, simply swipe up and down your screen to browse the list.

Notes names your note, using the first line of text. If you want to rename a note, first display the note, tap at the start of the first line of text, enter a new title, and press Return on the keyboard; the new first line is now reflected as the name of your note in the Notes list.

Because Notes lets you enter multiple notes with the same title — which can cause confusion — name your notes uniquely!
