  1. Hi Claudia,

    It depends on the size of your iPad. I suggest you keep the height around 768px but play with the width. Create a 1 page PDF with a specific height and add it to GoodNotes. If you notice you still need to fill more space, go back to keynote and make the width a little bit bigger. Keep doing this until you are satisfied with the weight and height and then create the whole planner.

  3. when I create a digital planner which format must I choose, that the whole screen of my Ipad is filled out. I alway have a frame and Its not really filled out???

  4. Dear Jenniffer, thank you that makes sense! The flowers and leafs from your video are they purchased? Do you sell them?

  5. Hi Claudia,

    If the images are PNG they will have a transparent background. When you save them in OneDrive you will see a black background because the stickers have a transparent background and that’s the default color in OneDrive, but the stickers have a transparent background. If you save them in DropBox you will see a white background, but the stickers have a transparent background. No matter what cloud folder you use, the stickers will not lose the transparent background.

    When you add the PNG stickers to GoodNotes you will see the stickers with no background color/transparent.

    I hope that makes sense if not please let me know and I’ll explain it in another way 🙂
