Frequently asked questions

  • Can I share a stack?

    Notebook stacks are only visible to you. In addition, the individual notebooks (and the notes within them) that make up a stack can be shared, but the stack itself cannot be shared.

  • Can I delete a stack?

    Yes. Simply remove all of the notebooks from the stack. When there are no notebooks in a stack, the stack disappears. The notes and notebooks within a stack do not get deleted when you remove them from the stack.
