Important things to know when using the handwriting conversion feature:
- The handwriting conversion feature only converts handwritten notes in notebooks, not in PDFs or ebooks.
- You need to be connected to a Wi-Fi network and logged in to a reMarkable account (my.remarkable.com) in order to use the handwriting conversion feature.
- You can edit and share your converted notes via email (see below) but they will not be stored on the device.
- Writing at an angle or non-horizontally won’t work, nor do symbols (such as mathematical symbols and diagrams), but several forms of bullet points are recognized…and some smiley faces too.
