Once one or more note listings have been selected, tap on the Move To option and

select which folder you want to move the notes to.

At this point, the notes are removed from their current folder and moved into the

newly selected folder. Instead of tapping on the Move To option, to delete the

selected notes, tap on the Delete option.


Using the checklist tool built in to the Notes app, it’s easy to add and format interactive

checklists into a note. To do this, place the cursor where you want to insert

the list and tap on the Checklist icon. The first empty check mark circle is displayed.

To the right of this icon, type your first list item and then tap the Return key. Now,

add a second, third, and fourth item, and keep going until your list is complete

(refer to Figure 13.16).

Later, when you tap on one of the check mark circles, a check mark is added to

it, indicating that the item has been completed. In a note, add as many separate

checklists as you want, and each list can have any number of items. The various

lists can be surrounded by other types of content.


One of the newly added sets of features built in to the iOS 9 edition of the Notes

app is the capability to handwrite, draw, or sketch on your iPhone or iPad’s screen

and store that content in the Notes app.

To do this, tap on the Draw icon displayed in the top-right corner of the virtual

keyboard. The Drawing screen is displayed. At the bottom of this screen are three

virtual writing/drawing tools, including a pen, highlighter, and pencil.

Tap on the Ruler icon to make a virtual ruler appear on the screen (shown in

Figure 13.21), which you can then drag around, reposition, or rotate.


To drag the ruler, place and hold one finger on the ruler and move

it around on the screen. To rotate the ruler, place two fingers (separated) on the

ruler and rotate your fingers clockwise or counterclockwise.
