iPad Outline - Importing PDFs?

Randy Turner Oct 08, 2016 10:11PM PDT

How do I import pdf files into outline iPad?

There are some instructions in the support section relating to printout and importing PDFs. A copy paste of part of those instructions are below. I haven't got a clue where the INBOX is, and this is not explained.

"Insert PDF files as printouts to annotate them.
Please add an attachment to your INBOX first. Then simply drag&drop a PDF file onto Outline page.
A three-option-menu will appear. Choose Split Pages or On Single Page depending on your needs. "

I would like to import PDF files into Outline iPad and turn them into Outline files. Is there a way to do this or not?

Hi Randy,

Thanks for reaching out!

To send the PDF to Outline please open the PDF on iPad > tap the Share sign at the upper right corner > Import with Outline.
Outline will be opened automatically, the PDF will be visible in the Inbox window.
You will be able to paste it to any page you want.

Feel free to write to me at to get the screenshots of how to Import PDFs to Outline.
