Create and Edit Text Files

You can create new text files, or open existing text files by browsing through the File Directory, which is the default Home Screen for JotterPad.

All available text files will appear in your File Directory as thumbnails.


Create New Text Files

Android:

When you create a new text file under “Local”, it will be stored Locally on your device under the “JotterPadX” folder by default. On the other hand, creating a new text file under your Cloud Account (i.e. Dropbox, Google Drive, Microsoft OneDrive), it will be stored in your Cloud by default.

Third party apps can modify and delete text files in both Local and Cloud Storage.

Please note that it is your responsibility to ensure that you files are stored properly in the local storage.
