I suggest you ...

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!

        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?

        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.

        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.

        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.

        I just bought a copy of GoodNotes to work with ios11 and my ipad pro/pencil. I want an app to take notes and an occasional sketch. The handwriting recognition works great - but like others have commented - there's no way to put it back (easily) into my notes. Ideally, I would like to select my text and do a "convert to text box" without having to export to the clipboard, create a new text box and then paste.

        My search for a note taking app continues. I wish Apple/developers had a trial mode without having to buy the app first. In this case a 10 minute trial would have told me what I needed to know. If it had worked, I would have bought the Mac version too and used the syncing.

        Yes like Nebo, but keeping both the handwritten formatting as well as the converted text. Ideally I think you should be able to switch between handwritten mode (input) and converted mode (viewing only). When exporting you could get both a handwritten page with all the niceties that follow with that, as well as a properly formatted page with converted text.

        Yes! Like Nebo. This is the only reason I'm still looking for another app. I've tried them all. If you had this feature I'd have no need to look elsewhere. I jot down notes during lectures but then I have to type them up properly when I get home, this feature would save me so much time during editing,
