Apologies if this has been asked before; I searched these forums using several combinations of "pencil", "apple pencil", and writing and I couldn't find a definitive answer.

My question is this: Can you use the Apple Pencil to write in the main Scrivener interface or is it typing-only? I'm not asking if the writing would be turned into typed text (aka OCR), I just want to know if writing in the interface is possible.

I am hoping for this feature also, or else speech to text.

AFAIK, Scrivener doesn't support Apple Pencil.
So you know where I'm coming from:
  • I'm a user, not an L&L employee.
  • Mac Scrivener 3.1.2, MacBook Air 11, MacOS 10.14.4 (Mojave)
  • IOS Scrivener 1.1.5; iPhone 8 Plus, iPad 6th gen, iOS 12.2

Not that I can see, either. I have taken a few notes with the Apple Pencil and copy pasted the output into Scrivener, but not directly.
