Sync & search
Once you have connected your Evernote account to Penultimate, the app automatically syncs any changes in your Penultimate notes in Evernote.
By syncing Penultimate to your Evernote account, you can save your notes and view them everywhere you have Evernote installed. Syncing allows the Evernote service to run powerful text recognition on your Penultimate Notebooks, which makes them searchable for handwritten text both inside Penultimate and within Evernote.
Note: For immediate changes to reflect in Evernote, manually sync Penultimate by tapping the account info button at the top of the screen, then tapping the sync button (two arrows forming a circle) located near the 'Last synced' notification.
Search notebooks and handwritten notes
To search for any handwritten text in a Penultimate note or notebook, do the following:
- Tap the search button (magnifying glass) in the top-right corner of any screen in Penultimate.
- Enter the words you want to search for when prompted. Penultimate displays any notebooks that match your search, as well as any notes inside notebooks that contain your search terms. Any matching text found is highlighted in yellow.
- Tap any of the note thumbnails that came up in the search results to view and edit them.
