Hey there @huang - apologies for the delayed response.

I can understand how great would be to have an option for hand-writing on Paper so I've put your request on our list - thank you for this feedback!

Please let me know if you have any other feedback or questions. Thanks!

Hello @kishorw

Great question.

Even though currently you cannot create such notes in Paper, there are alternative ways to add your handwritten notes in your Paper docs. :wink:

  1. You could create your handmade note and screenshot it, If your screenshots are uploading to Dropbox, navigate directly in Paper after you take the screenshot and import it, clicking the Dropbox logo icon, on your Paper task bar. 
  2. Are you using Dropbox mobile? If you do, you are going to love this one. You can scan your handmade notes (Find steps here). Your scans will automatically be saved in your Dropbox and all you will need to do is click the import from Dropbox button again. 

I hope one of the alternatives, matches with your needs. 

We would love to have feedback for the workarounds provided, whenever you get the time to try them out. 

Thank you!

If you want to keep handwritten notes then you can scan but I freestyle write using stylus of my Samsung A tab, and it converts to text

Would be valuable iff one could handwrite (ink) notes on it. Otherwise, doesn't add anything to creating a Word document, as far as i can see.
