Customizing the Templates

The templates are PNG files and are located in /usr/share/remarkable/templates/ you add new templates by simply copying additional files to this folder using SSH Access.

As of at least version, copying files is not sufficient to make your templates appear. You also have to edit the file templates.json with your favourite text editor to include meta data for your newly uploaded file. For each template file, there's a section like for example

  "name": "Weekplanner US",
  "filename": "P Week US",
  "iconCode": "\ue9db",
  "categories": [

These sections within curly brackets are separated with commas from each other. Just replace name with whatever caption you'd like to give your file. filename should be the file name of your PNG/SVG file without the extension. iconCode is something generic, (presumably) a Unicode character from a webfont installed on your reMarkable. categories can be used to create an own custom category. Just name it accordingly.

Alternatively you can use the free reMarkable Assistant or the eInkPads Template Installer with Drag n Drop functionality.


The templates are in the exact size of 1404×1872 pixels. The Menu Bar, if not closed, takes exactly 120 pixels on the top and on the left side.

Change default Template

There was a tip posted on Reddit about changing the default template that is used for new notebooks.

The template Blank.png is set to be used as the default template when creating a new notebook.

To have another template make a backup of the original Blank.png (eg. rename to Original-Blank.png) and just to be sure make a copy on your computer in case of an update overwrite.

Then rename(or copy) the template you want to use as the default to Blank.png and you have a new default template!
