Write foreign words

Good news, you can write foreign words, providing your foreign language uses the same alphabet as your input language (the language you chose for your notebook).

Nebo will interpret them as being proper nouns or invented words. Therefore you will need to make an extra effort when writing them:

  1. Draw your characters as best as possible and don't mix cursive and print scripts.
  2. If the word suggested by Nebo isn't correct, tap it to open a list of suggestions. Your foreign word should be there.
  3. If your foreign word isn't in the list, rewrite it by adding a space after each character. As you go, freeze each character's typeset format by tapping it in the conversion preview or in the list of suggestions.
  4. When each character is correct in the conversion preview, remove all spaces with a join gesture.
