Hi, Can the processed text be downloaded into MS Word?

Asked by: Martin
From the Wacom FAQ page; Does the app have handwriting to text? Yes. You can search in your handwritten notes in the app and export them to plain text, making it easy to copy your notes into emails, presentations or any other text application. This is a premium Inkspace feature and you need to have a Wacom Cloud account to activate this feature as well as an internet connection to search and export.
