Creating and editing universes
We call each infinite canvas a "universe", and we advise to use one per project.
To create a new universe, open the side panel (⌘1) and click on "New Universe" or just press ⌘N.
To edit a universe, click on its name at the top of the canvas. You can change its name, description, background colour, and publish it (more on that later).
To link universes (inception), drag them from the side panel.
To import items, you can either press the + sign on the top right, drag them into the canvas from a folder, or use a shortcut:
Create text: press T
Create Web sticker: W
Create post it (sticky): S
Open photo picker: P
Open file picker: F

A new way to browse the web
You can search anything, keep multiple websites open side by side, and extract text and images.
Read and use PDF files
You can browse your PDF files right from the canvas, extract text and images, or even a page or two!
To extract text, just highlight it. For an image, click on the selection button at the top left, select what you want to extract and click extract.
To select multiple pages, open the thumbnail panel, press ⇧ to select two or more pages, then drag them out.
