How to create PDF snippets in Notability

There is a diagram/chart in a PDF textbook that you want in your notes, but you don’t want to waste time drawing it.

Here’s how you can extract sections of your PDFs in Notability. 

1. Using the lasso tool (the free hand one is better), select the section you want to extract. 

2. Once selected, long press until you see that section ‘lifting out of the page’ 

3. Now simply drag and drop it into your notes. That’s it! 

This works on your scanned documents and sections of your notes too!
