Recommended format to import handwritten notes from OneNote

Recommended Posts

I've been using OneNote for a few years to take handwritten notes using both Windows Ink and an Android Samsung tablet with a S-Pen. Onenote does a somewhat reasonable job of searching handwritten notes.

Thinking of migrating to EverNote, and want to have all of my notes in one spot. However, I want to still be able to search my handwritten text. What would be the recommended format to export my OneNote notes to in order to maintain this functionality. Or is that even an option?

The easiest way: export your OneNote-Notes as PDF.

Import the PDF into Evernote.

Evernote makes the PDF searchable, and this should work for handwriting within the PDFs.

The biggest problem is that there is no batch export option for Onenote.

Evernote has an OCR process for search purposes
For handwriting, the format must be an image file

Correction - Evernote's OCR processing is not enabled for handwriting within pdfs.
Image format is required
