- Apple didn’t mention the handy tool that helps you draw straight lines in the notes. Place the fingers on the screen, and a ruler will show. Rotate it anywhere you want to bring the straight lines. Also, the Apple Pencil also produces a straight line with a ruler.
- There are many third party scanner apps available in the app store. But they aren’t necessary at all as Apple permits you to scan the documents and then make the PDF right from the Notes App.
Once you have found the document, you wish to scan then open a new document from the Notes and press the plus sign. Then press the scanned document. With the markup tool or Apple pencil, you can even sign the document and save as PDF.
