What Are Rem?

Each bullet point in RemNote is called a Rem. Each Rem represents a unique piece of knowledge and can be used to generate a flashcard for spaced repetition practice. The hierarchical bullet-point editor (with unlimited nesting) makes it easy to organize knowledge.

  • Press Tab to indent a Rem.

  • Press Shift + Tab to outdent a Rem.

  • Press Enter to create a new Rem.
