Explanations and instructions of all things Writing.Com.
NotePad is a convenient way to keep track of your personal notes. Think of it as an electronic sticky note, useful for jotting down ideas or testing a bit of WritingML code. You can access your NotePad by clicking on the icon located above the CREATE | REVIEW links or from within the My Account link in the navigation under the logo. Upgraded+ Members will also find a NotePad link in their Extended IM Console.
When you open your NotePad, you will see a list of available pages that you may title and save for later use. In addition, all members have use of the Scratch Pad, which is handy for quick testing, but will not save. The number of pages that you can store varies by membership level. Paid memberships are allotted multiple pages within the NotePad:
Free Membership: 1 NotePad page
Basic Membership: 2 NotePad pages
Upgraded Membership: 5 NotePad pages
Premium Membership: 25 NotePad pages
Premium Plus Membership: 50 NotePad pages
To add a new page to your NotePad, click the New Page link at the top of the screen below Notepad Navigation. Then type in a page name, enter your notes into the text area provided, choose a background for your "paper" and click on the Submit/Store button to save your note. It's just that easy! This is a very handy tool for the organization of your thoughts and ideas.
You can format each page in your NotePad to have a unique look by personalizing the following options:
Number of rows displayed
Stationary Color and Design
The Revert to Orig button undoes all changes since the page was last saved. After storing, pages can always be edited or deleted. To delete a page, click the page title to view it on the NotePad, scroll down to the bottom of the screen, check the box and click the Delete button. 1
