How to move pages from one file to another
To separate files from their current file and to add new pages to files simply drag and drop.
Here, we can see that multiplication and addition worksheets are together in one file. To separate, we drag the addition worksheets into the box called Drag and Drop pages. To merge files together, it's the same process of dragging and dropping pages into the same row.
To rearrange the order of your pages, drag and drop them to create your preferred ordering. When you export your content to Kami, the Kami document will appear in the order that you arranged.
How to rotate pages
Use the circular arrows to rotate the page 90 degrees on each click. This will change the way the pages look when you open the file in Kami again.
