Importing and Exporting Files into Study Sets

The Goodnotes 6 Study Sets offers a lot of flexibility when it comes to importing and exporting. Study Sets offer importing from a wide variety of file formats, and even supports importing study sets from other apps! 

Importing Study Sets into Goodnotes 6:

You can import the following file formats into Study Sets:

  • .Goodnotes 
  • .CSV 
  • .TSV 
  • .TXT

The .Goodnotes file format is standard export format for any Goodnotes 6 files; and .CSV / .TSV files are a common file type for a variety of other flashcard applications.

With Goodnotes 6 offering support for .TSV and .CSV conversion into Study Sets, you can easily export your study materials from other flashcard apps, and import them seamlessly into the app. For more information on how to export your Study Sets from other apps to Goodnotes Study Sets, see: Can I migrate my Study Sets from other flashcard apps into Goodnotes 6?

The process of importing files for Study Sets works the same as the rest of the app. You can either use the New... button in the Notebook View, and then navigate to your file and select it; you can drag and drop files from other apps (such as the Files App or a cloud storage app); or using the Open with Goodnotes option in the Share menu of any third party app. For more information on this, see: Importing files into Goodnotes.

One thing to note on importing Study Sets into Goodnotes 6 is that it’s currently not possible to import Study Sets that contain images or handwriting (in a .CSV / .TSV format), as any content aside from text will be lost.

Want to practice importing Study Sets into Goodnotes 6 before you do this with your own sets? We have a selection of sample Study Sets which you can access here!

Converting Flashcards into Study Sets:

If you use the Legacy Flashcards function from GoodNotes 5, you can also convert these into Study Sets. For a full breakdown on how to do this, see: Converting Flashcards into Study Sets


Exporting Study Sets:

Goodnotes 6 offers support for exporting your Study Sets into a .Goodnotes format. This means that you can easily share any Study Sets you've made with your other devices, or with friends or classmates!

To export Study Sets, select Share and Export within your Study Set View, and then select Export. Finally, when prompted, select a save location or destination for this file - which will create a copy of the Study Set outside of the app.
