Scribble changes how you use your iPad and Apple Pencil.

Although I have been using an Apple Pencil For some time, I recently discovered the Scribble feature that turns handwriting into written text. Scribble was introduced as part of iPadOS 14. While it may seem like a small feature, I find it really useful. It is worth checking if you have iPad and Apple Pencil.

Here’s how to use Scribble in iPadOS 14.

What is scribbling?

Scribble, included with iPadOS 14, primarily converts handwriting into written text. The best way to test this feature is to open an Notes Application then click pen He identified the pen marked with the letter “A”. Once you select the handwriting pen, write something and watch your handwriting transform into written text. In my case, I wrote “hello world” with the Apple Pencil and despite my poor handwriting, the iPad was able to recognize what I wrote and instantly convert it into written text.

Scribble feels fast enough to transform the handwriting on the go, which is something I really like about the feature. I’ve found Scribble helpful for taking quick notes or making a grocery list. But there’s more. If you circle and mark a word with the pencil, options like cut or copy appear. Meanwhile, erasing a word with Apple Pencil tip lets you delete that word. Interesting, scribble works across iOS. With the help of Scribble, it is possible to write a title using the Pencil in maps And search the site without having to type it in.

Scribble is an interesting feature, provided you have an iPad running iPadOS 14 and an Apple Pencil. If you don’t have an Apple Pencil, even a Logitech Crayon Pen will work. The good thing about Scribble is that it also works with the Apple Pages word processor, which I use a lot. Unfortunately, there is no support for Scribble for Google Documents and Microsoft Desk.
