LaTex text recognition
It would be awesome adding some LaTex text recognition so Engineering or science students could be able to take amazing notes. Also increase shape recognition capabilities like Bézier curves. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS APP!!!
I can only support this :D
I agree with this. This would help so many of us stem students
Converting handwrited text to LaTex would be awesome!!
Also I'd like to be able to make curly shapes.
Two difficult features, but really helpful!
At this time and as a teacher i use Goodnotes to create worksheets for my mathclasses. Problem: I cant transform handwrited formulars or squar Numbers into machinewriting.
I need a way to create worksheets with mathematical formulas in the standart form, not the workarround like 2^2 for 2 squared.
All the Best
I completely agree with everyone here. As a prospective user, I'm considering purchasing, but not until I find a way to use LaTeX throughout my notes.

Totally agree, a LaTeX equation creator is more than necessary. Specially in Science and Engineering. I can draw equations, but I usually waste time... It's way faster AND cleaner with LaTeX notation. Also... It would be nice to have the capacity to treat it like an object so that one could rotate, scale and copy/paste them.

The only app that currently has math recognition and conversion to LaTeX is Nebo. You use the MyScript ink engine, so I assume you have the capability as well. Nebo's implementation is poor, so you can leapfrog them. The name of the game is CONVENIENCE.
1. Nebo has a Math Box feature. Okay, better than nothing perhaps, but text and math are almost always interspersed. You need a way to include math inline, in the middle of a sentence, and/or a way of putting words inside a text box.
2. When converting to LaTeX, include the darn escape sequences (dollar signs), so the result can be pasted into a LaTeX document without the user having to add these. (Inexplicably, Nebo and MathPad don't do this.)
3. STEM students and researchers are ahead of the curve on technology adoption, so the demand may be larger than you estimate. I'm a mathematician. Every technical person I know has MASSIVE amounts of handwritten technical notes with equations interspersed, all disorganized and unsearchable. Nebo has a bullet point for this, but isn't a real answer. There currently is no real answer. Make Goodnotes a practical answer.
4. There are often numerous ways to render a given mathematical expression to LaTeX. You would jump a decade into the future if you offered customizable conversion, with user defined tables of preferred LaTeX output.
