How to use digital stickers in Goodnotes

If you are using Goodnotes, there is a handy built in tool that makes using digital stickers even easier! The Elements Tool on Goodnotes, which allows you to save and reinsert images, handwriting and basically anything all across your notes, makes it a perfect tool to manage your stickers. 

Here’s how to use your stickers with the Elements Tool

When you download digital stickers they’ll typically come in one of the following formats:

1. If your stickers are individually saved as PDF or PNGs…

You can bulk import them from your camera roll or directly from the Files app (which connects to Google Drive, Dropbox, and iCloud). Simply create a new digital sticker collection from the Elements picker and then tap “Add Photos” or “Import from…”

2. If your stickers are laid out as one page in a JPEG or PNG…

Add the image into a blank notebook with the Image Tool. Then, using the Image Tool, crop the specific digital sticker you want. Then tap again with the Image Tool to add it as an Element, so you can access it at any time!

3. If your stickers are in .goodnotes format…

Import the .goodnotes file into a new notebook. Then, using the Lasso Tool or Image Tool, add each sticker as an Element.

Now that your digital stickers are stored in the Elements Tool, you can access them at any time in any of your notes from the Elements picker in the toolbar!
