Draw in Text Box

    I am wondering if there is a way to draw an image, or edit simple lines in a text box. The entire screen is a textView/ect and i would like to be able to write a sentence then draw an image and write again. By draw i think i would use the Canvas, so basically is there a way to include a canvas in a text view?

    Evernote does do this, but to edit an image/draw you need to open another app "Skitch", my goal is to try and do this without any extra apps.

    For example:


    (canvas/editable graphical items)

    No, but why not just put a canvas behind a text view?

    i could do that, if there a way to prevent the items on a canvas over lapping the text in the text view?

    if you place your textview on top of your canvas in your layout file, then it will always be on top, no matter what is rendered on the canvas.
