Need an 10.1 Note App that Allows Handwritten PDF Sticky Notes to be exported to a Word or Text File
I'm new to the forum and this is my first post. I recently purchased a Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 in the hope that it would greatly simplify my work with reading PDFs and taking notes, but I've been stymied so far in my endeavors.
My main goal is to take a PDF, use the stylus to highlight various sections and passages, attached various handwritten sticky notes to the PDF in relation to those notes and THEN convert/export those handwritten notes into one typed Word or Txt Master document for further use in the writing of reports on a desktop. This seems like a fairly logical request as it simulates what a lot of students do with their textbooks to take notes, absorb books for classes., and write reports and research papers.
So far I've tried the qPDF notes app, and while it does an excellent job translating handwritten notes to text, it will not export that text into a separate Word or Text file. When I contacted Qoppa to ask if it could be done, they told me that no one had ever requested that function and acted as if I were crazy to want such a function.
I've also tried to keep a PDF open on one half of the screen and then use S Note in the other half to take notes, and while S Note also does an excellent job translating handwriting into text, it also does not transfer that text into other files, at least not that I have discovered so far.
Can anyone please tell me how I can accomplish my main goal of taking handwritten sticky notes that I've attached to a PDF, translating them into text, and then exporting those texts/notes into one master Word document or text file? This was my primarily reason for purchasing the Note 10.1 and I really need to accomplish this task for my work. Most everyone I talked to before I purchased the tablet assured me that there would be some way to accomplish this task, but so far, I've run up against a brick wall.
Any suggestions or help with this matter would be GREATLY appreciated.
