Did you know that Evernote can recognize your handwriting and make it searchable? It’s true. Today, we’ve got a great Partner Month way for you to get your handwriting into Evernote: the Wacom Bamboo Pen tablet. (Pssst. There’s a great giveaway at the bottom of the post.)
Wacom’s Bamboo Pen tablets make digital writing a completely natural and effortless process. The best part is that the tablet is a perfect complement to Evernote. From digital ink notes to annotated images, Evernote will make it all searchable and accessible from any computer or device you use.
How to use a Wacom tablet with Evernote
Creating ink notes
Evernote for Windows lets you create ink notes right inside Evernote. Click on the Ink Note option, then start scribbling with your Wacom tablet. Once you’re done, that Ink Note will sync to all other versions of Evernote that you use. On Mac, you can only view Ink Notes. We’re working through our ink-on-Mac strategy, so stay tuned.
On bother Windows and Mac, use the Wacom Bamboo Pen tablet to annotate images in your favorite image editor, then bring those annotated images into Evernote. We’ll process them and make the handwriting searchable. If you already have an image in Evernote, right click and open it with your image editor. When you’re done annotating, hit save, and the image will automatically update in Evernote thanks to our Live Update feature.
