Transport your ideas into the digital world

Putting pen to paper is just the start. When you’re ready, you can sync your notes and ideas to the Wacom Inkspace app and develop them digitally.

The app’s Ink to Text feature handily converts your handwritten notes to rich text or DOC formats, saving you the hassle of re-typing your work. And if you’re keen to share your creative process, Inkspace can record your work as MP4 video files that show your thought process coming together line by line.

On the web-based version of the app, our Ink Collaboration tool even allows you to work on a real-time canvas simultaneously with your friends of colleagues. So you can continually work together, no matter where you all are.
