Agree - very nice. My handwriting is getting sloppier and sloppier as time goes by as I rarely ever do anything but sign my name as I type or dictate just about everything these days.

I've got ~8 months of handwritten notes using primarily Goodnotes and Notability.

I'm using it for redesigning my house (creating lists of supplies, managing tasks, purchases to be made), planning out multiroom audio and smart home network, grocery lists, medical appointments, sudden phone notes, calendar reminders and lists of software.

My handwriting is pretty bad and it translates perfectly using the pencil to the iPad (garbage). But I can read the notes.

My handwriting with pen and paper is atrocious and the Apple Pencil doesn’t change anything. I think that’s one of the reasons why I prefer everything to be digital.

I've got a year's worth of German class notes in Nebo but I've converted them all from my block letter "handwriting" into typed text. Still, loving scratching out notes on my Pro during class and consolidating them all easier into topics than my classmates can with their paper notebooks!

Man I would have loved the iPad Pro when in college. I used a PowerBook (150?) with Writenow word processor and people looked at me like I was a freak for bringing a computer into class....

Back in 1991-92 I was allowed to bring a laptop into exams.

Hi Tom,
Awesome^^b
Sounds great and intuitive for your EDC experiences and it seems that you're so in it for notetaking in a wide variety of purpose.

It doesn't matter good or bad of your handwriting, just enjoy it.:)

;)It's all about the secret of how our brain works.
Handwriting emphasizes the deep memory workflow and gets it more complete.
