How can we improve GoodNotes?

Convert Hand Written Notes to Text to the Same Page, additional feature to the export in converted to text.

Please please add a feature to convert hand written notes to the same page. You offer to export the converted hand written notes to text, but you should allow to change the notes in the fly to the same page you converted. Please! Your note application will supersede all others with this feature!

        Nebo will convert to text only within the Nebo Application. The text must then be exported to a Word document similar to what must be done currently in GoodNotes. I need to place cursor in the Word table and have handwriting converted to text as I write, expanding the table as text is added (not do extra conversion/export).
        If GoodNotes could import a Word document with tables, the cursor placed into each table cell and expanded with text converted from handwriting (with no two-step export process), that is what is needed.

        Nebo integration would be fine.
        The recognition of Nebo is by far the best there is at this moment

        Eagerly waiting for this update. If I can also convert flow charts like how nebo does then there’s no competition.

        Add my vote for Nebo integration. It would double the value of the app for me. The Mac text conversion is nice, but my goal is to travel only with an iPad Pro.

        Will this function be implemented in GoodNotes 4 or in a newer, "redesigned" Version of GoodNotes (Maybe GoodNotes 5?)?

        Nebo has this feature and works well! I suggest you add this feature to goodnotes. It will be perfect.

        Adding my vote to the mix, please please add this feature!

        So it’s now Jan 2018 and this function isn’t available?other apps are superior based on this function alone!

        I do audits by typing into Word forms with tables then submitting the Word doc to the client. I need to place cursor in the Word table and have handwriting converted to text as I write, expanding the table as text is added (not do extra conversion/export). I've been using GoodNotes for years and it's the best. I had to buy a MS Surface tablet recently to use during audits. Handwriting-to-text is native in Windows 10/Word but I would MUCH prefer to use my iPad/GoodNotes/Word. E-mail me and I'll send you all the samples of the audit forms you need.

        Please let me describe the use case.1. write note. 2. have note converted to replace handwriting.
        I have just bought goodnote and love what it can do but as far as I can see my basic use case takes a whole heap of steps. I mean yes I can do it but is it 7 or 8 steps, sorry I lost count.

        1. write stuff. 2 press button to convert written stuff to typed stuff. Repeat.

        Please. Thank you.

        I m shocked that this feature is not there. I m seriously thinking to return the app just because of this reason. How come guys can you pass this while putting handwriting support?

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Miss this, too. I can see that it works fine converting my handwriting, but I can‘t copy or use the converted text. I‘d love to convert handwritten notes to printed text.

        I will keep using and recommending Nebo until Goodnotes has this feature. There is zero reason to handwrite on a digital device without full round-trip handwriting conversion. Anything less is just a party trick.

      • Bart Wise commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        It has struck me as strange that converting written hand notes to text in the same page wasn't done before the exporting option. I concur strongly with this request.

      • Cameron Brown commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        When converting to text, it would be epic if converted writing appeared in the same location, similar font size and the same colours as handwriting.

        You should be able to convert text back to handwriting on the fly.

        I agree that this missing functionality was a concern when purchasing this app. An easier with to convert notes to text is needed. On the fly conversion would be nice.
