Intro to the interface


1 — Sidebar

Think of the side bar as the main control panel for your workspace(s). You can switch workspaces from here, access search, see who’s online in a shared workspace, and see a list of where you’ve linked the board you’re in.

2 — Navigation bar

Use the back and forward arrows to move between the current board and boards you were in before.

When you’re down a rabbit hole of deeply nested boards, use the breadcrumbs to move up the hierarchy. You can also rename your boards by clicking or tapping on the name.

Access your Profile settings, share your current board, and toggle the zoom level.

On iPad, you can also open app settings and undo / redo actions from the navigation bar. Additionally, you can tap anywhere with two / three fingers to undo / redo.



3 — Toolbar

You can add text, boards, ink, and other media using the toolbar at the bottom (more on rich media cards). In the toolbar on iPad, you get an extra icon for pasting things.
