How to add custom text to iPlanner

Hello lovelies and planner addicts out there. I have been using digital planner a.k.a iPlanner since last year on and off. I kept going back to paper planner because the stylus that I was using doesn't satisfied me like a regular pen. That's all changed after I upgrade to iPad Pro 9.7" and use Apple Pencil as my writing tool. Now I have the same satisfaction writing on iPlanner like a paper planner.

Things that I used 


In today tutorial, I am going to show you how to add a custom text to your planner. Goodnotes comes with limited fonts for text and you cannot add your own font.
