What is the file format? Individual pages are stored as standard .svg files. The paper is stored by name in the title of the file, but the actual lines are not stored. A series of newlines demarcates the break between highlighter and pen. Jarnal can read its own .svg files and produces .svg files that should be readable by other applications. It probably cannot read .svg files produced by other applications. Following the idea in OpenOffice, the .jaj file used by Jarnal is a standard zip file containing the pages plus the plain text configuration file, plus image files, plus the background, if that is being stored in the file. The configuration file is identified by name, but the names of the pages do not matter, only their order. You can also access the svg text by copying individual pages to the clipboard. You may store additional files in the .jaj file using any zip program or the internal file manager; options are provided also for inserting addtional files using the command line or via metadata. These additional files will be preserved when the .jaj file is saved. Extra files should be named jarnal.conf, p<integer>.svg or start with background or image which are the names of files used by jarnal.

customization is possible. You should take account of the following:
