What is a digital planner?

It’s a planner for your iPad or tablet! A digital planner is just like a paper planner but instead of paper, it is a PDF file (which stands for portable document format).

In other words? A digital planner is simply a more portable version of a paper planner. They are coded with these things called hyperlinks, which allow you to tap the tabs, buttons, text, etc., to jump between the pages of the planner.

The planners can then be imported into apps that allow you to ‘mark up’ PDF files. You’re probably already familiar with Adobe Reader (like on your computer), but you can import PDFs into apps like GoodNotes, Notability, Noteshelf, and others.

What do I need to get started?

In addition to your iPad/tablet, it is very beneficial to have an Apple Pencil/stylus (possibly a keyboard, if you prefer to type) and basic knowledge of your preferred note-taking app (whether it is GoodNotes, Notability, etc).

How do I use the hyperlinks in my planner?

Most apps have a reading mode that you must enter to click the links. Alternatively, you can long-press and click "Open Link" in GoodNotes. Here's how to use reading mode in an app like GoodNotes.

Which iPad is required for digital planning?

iPad models that are still receiving software updates from Apple are recommended. For a list of devices currently being supported by the latest software, please visit this list.

What apps are compatible with a digital planner?

​All digital planners from KDigitalStudio are PDF files, and thus, will work in any note-taking app that accepts the use of hyperlinked PDF files, such as GoodNotes, Notability, ZoomNotes, Noteshelf, CollaNote, Zinnia, and many others.

Can I use an Android tablet for digital planning?

Yes. While an iPad is recommended for the best digital planning experience, digital planners can be used in compatible apps on Android as well.

All KDigitalStudio digital stickers come as individual PNGs as well, so any device is able to use them.

Will my digital planner sync to automated calendar apps?

What you do in your digital planner will not sync to any calendar app. This includes using digital planners that have Apple Calendar/Reminders integrations, as they're simply shortcuts to open those app(s). Instead, split-screen your calendar and note-taking app with your planner and then drag & drop your deadlines.

Will what I write on a daily/weekly/monthly page autopopulate on another page?

No. Digital planners are PDF files and are meant to emulate paper planners. What you write on a daily page in a paper planner will not automatically appear on the weekly of that paper planner. The same is true for digital planners.

To make use of such a feature, you'd need to just use a digital calendar (Google Calendar, Apple Calendar, Fantastical), which are not digital planners.

Can I use these planners in Microsoft OneNote?

KDigitalStudio digital planners are not compatible with Microsoft OneNote.

My hyperlinks are not working. What do I do?

First, make sure you are in reading mode or alternatively, long-press and click "Open Link" to navigate your digital planner if using GoodNotes. Here's step-by-step instructions from GoodNotes on switching to reading mode. If you are in reading mode, digital planner hyperlinks will break if you delete pages.

Thus, it is recommended to never delete pages. You will need to recover the pages from the trash bin or redownload & import a fresh copy of the planner.

Please make certain that your app is updated as well.

I'm getting an 'unsupported file type' error

Please be sure that you are only importing compatible file types for the app you are using. In general, zip files are incompatible with note-taking apps and will need to be unzipped prior to importing your files.

I'm getting a 'POSIX' error when downloading my files

A POSIX error is generated by Apple when there is not a strong enough Internet connection to unzip files. Please use a stronger Internet connection or mobile hotspot to unzip your files.

I'm experiencing lags, glitches, bugs, and more

Unfortunately, this is due to bugs or glitches related to the app you are using. Digital planners are simply documents, so they won't experience glitches, non-loading pages, etc.

You can view a full list of confirmed issues with GoodNotes here.

It is recommended to reach out to the app developers directly with these issues, and as unfortunately, KDigitalStudio is not affiliated with these companies and cannot provide app support.

My stickers appear glitched, and I'm using GoodNotes 6

​Unfortunately, this is due to the GoodNotes 6 update. We are working tirelessly to update any stickers affected by the GoodNotes 6 since unfortunately, we are still waiting for an update on this fix from the GoodNotes team themselves. Once an update is available that fixes the glitching stickers due to the GoodNotes 6 update, you'll receive an email with the updated files.
