I’ve tried taking notes on the iPad Pro using an Apple Pencil, but for me, it’s just not as efficient as old-fashioned pen and paper. I generally take notes on a Field Notes Steno Book, tear out the relevant sheets and use a paper cutter to trim off the ragged top edge, and file them away.
This thread has got me thinking about scanning my handwritten notes and filing them electronically. I doubt my handwriting is good enough to OCR, but it seems like good filenames and maybe a few tags should be enough to find what I’m looking for, even if the scanned file is just a picture of my handwritten notes.
Has anyone tried something like this? How has it worked for you?
