This article includes everything you need to know about using the pen tool.
If you select the Pen tool from the toolbar, you can write on the page with a stylus or your finger just as you would do with a pen on paper.
Choosing a pen style
The Pen tool has three different pen styles, which can be set in the Pen tool settings. Double tap on the Pen tool icon in the toolbar to open the settings.
- Fountain pen - for your everyday notes and sketches (pressure sensitive with Bluetooth-styluses)
- Ball pen - for your everyday notes and sketches (non-pressure sensitive)
- Brush pen - for more artistic sketches, drawings, and lettering (highly pressure sensitive)
Changing color and thickness
The pen, the highlighter, and the shape tools each have an own set of shortcuts for colors and thicknesses in the contextual menu. Tap on the icon to change the color or the thickness.
Select more colors and thicknesses by tapping on the shortcut twice.
