Handwriting

Jub Hurren Oct 12, 2016 11:06PM PDT

Hi guys,

New to the app - looks great except the fludidity of the handwriting function is substantially below the standard seen on other apps like notability or goodnotes. Being able to hand write notes that are synced with OneNote was the reason I bought the app... Are there any plans to address this?

Many thanks,
Jub

Hi Jub,

Thanks for reaching out!

And apparently we know about all the handwriting's weak spots.
We're currently analysing what we can do to improve it.

The improvements release is planned for this year.
If you want I can write back to you when there is the exact version for its release.
What do you think?

OUTLINE for windows, I can not make a good mirror between OneNote and your product, I am losing information all the time.

If Outline come up with a windows apps, definitely I will pay for that..has to be 100% compatible with the iPad version and easy sync...and don't depend on clouds to access our information.

Thank you for your time

Hi Daniel,

Thanks for reaching out!

We don't have any particular plans for Outline for Windows yet.
But I think we can apparently get to such version implementation.

Feel free to write to me if there are any other questions on Outline.
I'll be happy to help!

OUTLINE for iPad

The app is clean, simple and very helpful.

I'd like to have a better handwriting experience when using Apple Pencil. Although it's possible to use currently, the experience is slow and not precise. From my perspective, this is the only thing preventing me from going fully into electronic note taking.

Thanks.

Speaking for the iPad group: Currently OneNote is much better in Handwriting but far away from connectivity of outline. Improvement needed!

Adding my vote for upgrading handwriting using Apple Pencil. For me, this is far and away, the most important update / feature.

Also adding my vote for the Apple Pencil, being able to sketch and handwrite notes is very valuable for me feature-wise

Adding my vote as well for improving Apple Pencil use. It looks like the first communication in this thread was from Oct 2016. Any plans to implement this improvement in 2018?

Very disappointed in regards to handwriting /Apple Pencil writing quality. Why is this issue not being addressed? Looks like you are not taking your customers seriously with this being an issue for such a long time.

Hey Mike,
I'm sorry the issue disappoints you. We are planning to divert our closest attention to Outline this year and we'll see if we can add this fix to our updates. Thank you for your message, it means a lot.
