Customizing VoodooPad


VoodooPad offers itself as a canvas to capture anything you want and can be changed to better suit your needs.  Check out some of the topics below for more information. 


Change the Default Font

To change the default font for new pages, open up VoodooPad's General Preferences.  Select whatever is written in the new page text box, in the example below it says "Write about Customization here."  Click where it says "use the Font Panel to change text style" in order to open up the font panel to change the text.

Customizing the Toolbar

The toolbar contains the most helpful features of VoodooPad at the touch of a button.

However, there are more options available than are set by default.  To customize your toolbar, choose View Customize Toolbar.  With the customize window open, you are now ready.  Drag icons in and out of the toolbar to get the buttons you want.  When you are done, hit the "Done" button.

VoodooPad automatically shows you an icon with text underneath.  If you want to save some real estate, try going into View Customize Toolbar and setting it to either Icon Only or Text Only.  



Change the Default Home Page

By default, VoodooPad names the default home page "Index".  If you are not happy with this you can open up the Info palette, click on 'Document', and choose a different page from the Home Page drop down menu.

New Page Templates

VoodooPad automatically creates all new pages to read "Describe <the name of the page> here".  You can change this either through New Page Preference or New Page Template.
