Hide the Sidebar and Note List

If you want to focus on editing your notes, you can hide the Sidebar and/or the Note List.


Selecting ViewShow Editor Only or Show Notes and Editor . To return to the initial state click on Show Tags, Notes and Editor. It is also possible to change the visualization mode by clicking on the icon in the bottom right of the Bear window.


When using Bear in landscape on iPad, you can hide the Sidebar while browsing notes by swiping to the left anywhere on Bear. But once you tap a note to start editing, both the Sidebar and Note List will hide to give you room to work.

In portrait on iPad, Bear’s sidebar will automatically hide as soon as you tap a note in the Note List to view it. If you tap the note to start editing, the Note List will hide as well.
