Handwritten notes not searchable

Recommended Posts

What am I doing wrong? I have an iPad pro and an apple pen. I handwrite notes in Evernote and also in penultimate and neither of these notes are searchable.

If I write on a piece of paper and take a pic the info is searchable

Same for me. The documents are searchable in the MacOS app but neither on the iPhone nor in the iPad version.

Any feedback or updates on this? ...otherwise I'd like to get my money back for my premium account 😕

Which format does the handwritten stuff have ?

EN will only OCR certain picture formats. It is JPG, PNG and GIF. Text in PDFs will not be OCRed.

I take my handwritten notes with GoodNotes 5. It does its own OCR of handwriting. When exporting to EN as PDF, the search index can be exported with the notes. In this case they are searchable.

this works for me both, using EN built-in sketches as well as auto-synced notes with Noteshelf App.

Maybe it takes some time until the servers have OCRd the images.
