Creating Tips

Sketching

With ZeptoPad, you can smoothly expand or shrink entire worksheets or sections of worksheets as you draw.It might be a good idea to first minimize the worksheet so that you can sketch a quick outline. Then, expand particular areas as you see fit to create sections with higher levels of detail.

MindMapping

First, select the Object icon then make a figure.
Select the text icon and input free text.
You can freely change the text object in shape, moving with drag, expanding and shrinking by pinching, and even in colors and fonts.
It's convinient if you group the text and the figure together by Grouping
And connecting both of them by Connector By repeating this process, you can make a mindmap easily.

Think about Basketball strategy

By utilizing the various text features offered by ZeptoPad skillfully, you can turn this application into a very powerful tool.For example, let's imagine you are thinking about the strategy used in a basketball game.With capital letter Os representing the players, you can formulate tactics by moving these symbols around as if they were magnets on a whiteboard. And, to make the diagram even easier to understand, you can assign teams different colors and create a ball using a lower case o.

Build the Tower of Hanoi

The classic game "The Tower of Hanoi" can also be created utilizing ZeptoPad's text features.While there are surely more practical ways to use the application, this is to give you a glimpse of the many things ZeptoPad is capable of.

"The Tower of Hanoi" is a game where disks of varying sizes are stacked onto three towers.Thanks to ZeptoPad's movable text feature, strings of lower case 'o's connected together can be conveniently used for the game's disks.

The object of the game is to move all the disks from the far left tower over to the far right tower.In attempting to accomplish this, the player may not, however, place a larger disk on top of a smaller disk.This presents you with a challenging puzzle which should take a considerable amount of time to solve.

In this way, you can use ZeptoPad to create entertaining content. It's all up to you and your imagination.

How to copy and paste

Push EDIT icon and display the edit tool. Select or drag a drawn figure on the screen (at this point, you can rotate the figure with enlarging or reducing it with two finger, or move the figure by dragging it with one finger).
Push COPY icon and PASTE icon , then the figure is reproduced.
