Do you ever start making a note in the Notes app, only for it to grow bigger and more complex? Do you think, “I wish I’d just written this in Pages so I could print it out edited like a normal document?” Well, now you can. You can easily move a note from the Notes app straight into Pages. Just press the Share button in the top right-hand corner, and then press Open in Pages.

It’ll take Notes a moment or two to prepare your new file, and then Pages will open with all your content there, whether it’s linked or handwritten text or bullet points—everything is there just like you had it before. Now, of course, because you’re in Pages, you can edit it like a real document. You can add pages, adjust the layout, set margins, and do all those things. You can even use Presenter Mode if you want to.

This means you can take that note, expand on it, and develop it into a proper document as easily as that.
