The Lasso Tool is one of the most flexible and powerful tools in GoodNotes. It allows you to do all sorts of actions:
- copy, cut, paste
- taking screenshots
- changing color of text subsequently
- dragging and dropping
Start by selecting something
With the Lasso Tool, you can select or "lasso" objects on a page by circling them. This works for handwriting, highlighting, text boxes, and images. The selection will be indicated by a blue, dashed line. The selection can now be moved by dragging it across the page.
