Installing Templates

Please follow these steps to install additional templates on iPadOS:

Once you are on the iA.net website:

Delete The Template

If you ever would like to remove a Custom Template, go back to Settings/⚙️TemplatesCustom Templates then swipe to the right on the template you would like to delete.

Custom Templates

Users comfortable with code (CSS, HTML, and JS) can create custom templates tailored to their own tastes. For more on this please see our dedicated page: Custom Templates.

It is also possible to override some of the CSS for a selected template by adding an HTML style block in your document.

<style>
  @media print {
    body {
      font-size: 25pt;
    }
  }
</style>

This solution is great for users who aren’t comfortable with code or those who just want to add a few changes (font size or font color for example), without creating a template.
