Create Your Own Papers

In addition to the Papers available in the Paper Shop, you can also create unique Penultimate papers from any image to fit your note-taking needs. Here’s how it’s done:

  1. First, take a photo or scan an image of a blank document you’d like to use as the background of your paper. Then, save it to the Camera Roll on your iPad.
  2. Inside any Penultimate Notebook, tap the Papers icon on the top right corner of your screen. Hit the (+) sign, then Continue to add a new Paper.
  3. Select the image you’d like to create your Paper from, and name the Paper whatever you would like.
  4. Click on your custom Paper to start writing or drawing, just as you normally would. It will now be the default Paper when you create new pages in your current notebook. If you switch Papers or Notebooks and then want to return to the last selection, you can find it in My Papers.

Bonus: To add this paper to Penultimate on your iPad, open the link to this shared note, then tap and hold the .ppr file and tap “Open in Penultimate.”

Any form, diagram, or template that you frequently reference is now synced to all your devices and searchable at a moment’s notice. Custom Papers are a just another way that Penultimate and the rest of Evernote’s apps make getting organized around your projects easy and fun, no matter what information you need to keep track of in your work or daily life.

    What dimensions are used to create the papers? I would like to create a few of my own but can’t get the size quite right.

    Great App, what kind of pen works with it?

    Handwriting is really smooth, but the app really needs a wrist-rest for longer periods of use. A zoom function would also be helpful. Any plans to add those two features?

    Penultimate Paper Shop is – erm, well… cool – I suppose but, you know what, the coolest thing you could possibly do is incorporate a ‘zoom’ feature like the other awesomely cool handwriting apps. That odd zoom thing you did with the latest version – naaa – it’s weird… Big hug “W” weird. Unnatural. Odd.

    Sorry guys but as cool as having nice paper is, you have ‘hit the post’ with the new oddball zoom thingy!

    Are there any plans to create “Diary Paper” i.e. Each Day of the week split across two pages..the full notebook providing a year. Perhaps even showing information from your calendar on that day – Would be really useful for writing down meeting actions and allocating space in the week to get them done. – Would save flicking back and forwards between calendar and penultimate in meetings too when asked to commit to dates or timeframes.
