Drag&Drop olsa harika olurdu

Çok kullanışlı. Yazılanı çok doğru algılıyor. Karalayarak silme özelliği mükemmel. Fakat aynı dokümanın içerisinde farklı dilleri algılayamaması kötü. Bi de telefonda, aldığımız notları en azından görüntüleyebilsek. Böyle ilave bi uygulama gelebilir. Hatta klavyeyle düzenleme yapılabilir.

Why can't we just switch languages via double tap to apple pen? We don't need double tab for eraser. We can select multiple required languages and switch them easily.

Developer Response ,

We hear you – mixing English and a second language is already possible but we understand that some users sometimes need to use two or more languages that aren't English on the same page. This presents significant development challenges due to the complexity of handwriting recognition. We get asked for Nebo on iPhone a lot, and it's high on our priority list. Thanks - all your remarks have been noted. Mila
UPDATE: Download the new Nebo Viewer app to browse, search and share notes from your iPhone! Available free from the App Store on iPhone.

“ONH” yazmak imkansız

Kalemle ONH yazmak istediğimde, H harfini yanlış algılıyor.
Ne kadar uğraştıysam da hep yanlış algılıyor.

Bir de kalem çizgi kalınlığı seçtiğim renge göre önceden farklı ayarlanabilmeli. Örneğin, kırmızı rengi başlık olarak kullanıyorum. Kalın çizgi kullanmak istiyorum. Altında siyah renkle yazıyı yazarken de daha ince yazmak istiyorum.

Developer Response ,

Thanks for reaching out. Indeed, Nebo struggles with this word in Turkish because it's not a common word. If you have a paid version of the app, you can use the Dictionary feature for unusual words and terms. Hope this helps, Mila
