Do you love to use the Apple Pencil for taking notes on your iPad?
How about Notion? Do you think you can accomplish the same thing?
Or, do you want to draw something inside your Notion workspace?
Well, my friend. You can certainly do both of them.
In this blog post, I am going to share some ways to use your Apple Pencil to take notes or to draw right inside Notion.
So, let’s dive in.
Does Notion Support Apple Pencil?
Using Apple Pencil to take notes
I bet you’re wondering, does Notion really support Apple Pencils?
As a matter of fact, it does. And, you don’t have to install any 3rd party app/tool to do that.
Just make sure that your iPad OS is updated to 14 or more and you’re good to go.
So, what exactly can you do with the Apple Pencil?
Quite a few things.
You can write on the Notion interface and the text will be automatically added.
You can strike through a portion of text and that will be highlighted.
And of course, you can navigate your Notion workspace with your Apple Pencil. It’s a no-brainer, right?
What's even more fun is you can simply write down your notes with your Apple Pencil.
It’ll definitely help you level up your workflow and creativity.
Using Apple Pencil to draw
If you’re like me, you love to draw.
Now, you’re wondering how you can draw in Notion, right?
Well, for this to work, you’ll need to use a different tool.
But, don’t worry. You don’t have to install anything and they’re super easy to access.
Just type “/” and select
. Then, type
, press enter, and you’re all set up.
Now you can draw anything, change the color, undo/redo, clear the canvas, and even download the drawing as an SVG file.
This is the closest you can get to drawing in your Notion workspace.
Using other devices:
You might be thinking, what about other styluses? Like Samsung S Pen?
The sad thing is, you can only use them for navigation. You can’t use that to take notes as you can do with an Apple Pencil.
But, you can definitely draw in Notion using the www.notiondraw.com link.
The Apple Pencil is great for drawing or taking notes.
And, you can use it to write or even draw in Notion. But, it’s quite limited compared to what other tools can do.
Nevertheless, if you have an iPad and an Apple Pencil, there is nothing wrong with using them.
So, what do you think of it? How are you going to use your Apple Pencil in your Notion workspace?
