I’m playing with a note taking application for iPad called GoodNotes. It has a lot of potential to help replace notebooks for homework. It requires some customization because the default templates have a beige background. Beige is easier to look at on a bright computer screen, but it is impractical when printing. The built-in solution seems to be to export “notes only”. However, I have mixed feelings about printing handwritten notes from lined paper that has no lines.
Here are my customized templates, based on the built-in options, with the background color removed for better printing.
|Ruled (lined paper)||Landscape Ruled|
|Squared (graph paper)||Landscape Squared|
|Music (staff paper)||Landscape Music|
|Wide Ruled||Manuscript Ruled|
When installing these, set margins by 132pt per inch.
|Graph Paper – 1/4″ quad||Letter||Portrait||33pt|
|Graph Paper – 5 mm grid||Letter||Portrait||26pt|
|Graph Paper – 5 mm grid||Letter||Landscape||26pt|
|Graph Paper – 5 mm grid||A4||Portrait||26pt|
|Graph Paper – 5 mm grid||A4||Landscape||26pt|
|Isometric Graph – 1/4″||Letter||Portrait|
|Log-Log Graph – 11/3″||Letter||Portrait|
|Log-Log Graph – 33 mm||A4||Portrait|
|Semi-Log – 11/3″ x 1/4″||Letter||Portrait|
