The second look, transfering relevant notes from paper into a file/system/database, involves thinking, pondering, rethinking, development, catching additional ideas etc., so there should be no point in handling a slightly more sophisticated interface.
On the other hand, I have to admit that although I've spent a lot of money on software like DevonThink, Tinderbox and the like, I manage my thoughts, ideas and relevant notes from four decades still in binders and filing boxes, because until day, nothing beats paper for this purpose. At least for me. To use a computer is already "post-processing".
Doesn't that just mean your workflow is different to mine?
When transcribing a notebook I just want to get the stuff off the page and into the computer. Post-processing ("writing") comes later.
