When hand writing notes in Apple Notes, it is very easy to cut off notes across pages when exporting the note. This is because dividers between pages aren't shown as they are in Notability or GoodNotes, making it easy to write over a page boundary and cut off the note when exporting the note.

Is there any way to export the note as a continuous PDF (a la OneNote) so that text doesn't get cut off, or show page dividers in the Notes app so that the user is aware of where the page divisions are?

  • Do you have a Mac computer? I know your quesion was referring to an iPad but there is an easy solution if you have a Mac computer.

  • A Mac-based solution is not completely ideal but it would definitely work Oct 10 '20 at 14:57
  • Funny thing is, I was going to say go with OneNote. Every time I tried looking at the native Notes app, I kept going back to OneNote because it just did everything better. It's also cross platform so....

  • OneNote is nice, but IIRC it exports as a massive sheet which isn't that nice for printing. I prefer Notability/GoodNotes since they have actual pages :P Oct 11 '20 at 16:52

If you have a Mac and an iPhone on same network the Notes on one device shows up on other. So your notes should show up on your Mac and handwritten notes will appear as well. There is an option in Notes on a Mac to export selected note as a PDF. When I tried this the Note apeared on 2 pages in the PDF and all the info was there.

  • Great idea! The quality seems to be very low though. Oct 12 '20 at 1:15
