Type in Nebo (Keyboard)

You can now easily switch between your Pencil and your keyboard, and take your notes even faster. You will be able to:

  • Add text without using your Pencil.
  • Edit existing text with the keyboard, whether it is handwritten or converted.
  • Select and copy/paste text in Nebo or to any other app.

Q) What is the keyboard?

You can easily switch between your pencil and keyboard.
You can also modify and add text in Nebo without a pencil.

Q) How do I activate the keyboard?

You can select the icon "Keyboard" on the menu, and Nebo will pop up the soft-keyboard.

If you have an external Keyboard or Bluetooth keyboard, you can start typing after you select the "Keyboard" icon. 

Q) Can I use the keyboard on all platforms?

The keyboard feature is available on iOS, Windows 10, Android, and Chromebook.

Q) Can I add typed text in a Math, Diagram, or Sketch object?

The keyboard can be enabled in text blocks or empty lines only.

Q) Can I mix handwritten and typed text?

With two taps in a text block, you can introduce the cursor and start typing. Handwritten and typed text are treated the same way, and the two will sit side by side quite naturally. All interactive ink gestures can be applied to your typed text. You can also continue to highlight, title, subtitle, or color any of your text.
