In this article, you’ll find an overview of all the gestures you can use to navigate the files and folders and notebooks on your reMarkable paper tablet. Navigate within your documents, hop between menus, and quickly access the files you need by swiping.
Navigating in a document
When working in your notebooks, PDFs, or ebooks, you can use gestures to quickly browse between pages, turn them individually or add a new one, and zoom in and out.
Swipe down from the top of the screen to close your notes, PDFs, or ebooks. Simply drag your finger downwards from the top, towards the middle of the screen.
Swipe left and right
Swipe left to go to the next page, or to add a new page if you’re on the last page of your notebook.
Swipe right to go to the previous page. When browsing inside a folder, you can now swipe to the right to go back a step, or home to My files.
Pinch to zoom
Use two fingers to zoom in on the part of the page you want to see. Once you’ve zoomed in, you can easily move around the magnified area. Just hold two fingers on the display and move them together in the same direction to pan around the page after zooming in.
Swipe up from the bottom of any document to bring up the scrollbar. Use the scrollbar to quickly browse through page previews in a document. Drag the cursor left or right to scroll between pages, or tap the bar to jump to a specific page.
Navigating between documents
You can use swipe gestures to open, close, and easily navigate between documents on your reMarkable tablet.
