And also, mind - a single line of text is not “one size fits it all”. During planning or brainstorming, post-it note might be a better option. And in another, you might want to consider using long notes instead.

Long notes

Long notes are great for content with lots of text. Notes are edited separately in the sidebar, which means you can keep working on the whiteboard and edit notes at the same time. You can also add different previews for notes on the whiteboard that behave as links.

  1. Select Text tool
  2. Choose Long note tool and choose the settings you wish to have. You can immediately choose what type of preview you wish to add on your whiteboard and also choose a note template to get started faster.
  3. Click anywhere on the canvas to add the note.
  4. Alternatively you can add note from the right sidebar - open the sidebar with your notes.
