Hands on: MyScript Nebo is what Windows Ink should be

Mark Hachman | Aug. 11, 2016
From editable text to equations, Nebo offers it all. And for a short time, it's free.

Perhaps the most obscure thing about Nebo is how to take the inked, editable text and do something with it. For that, you need to access the ellipsis menu in the upper right. There, you’ll find options to either share that text in OneNote, view it as HTML in a web browser, or export it to Microsoft Word. You’re still going to have to do a bit of editing to take the individually inked lines and join them together, but it’s better than nothing.

Nebo’s not perfect; the Math function leaves room for improvement, and the blocks of space Nebo carves out for editing have to be adjusted with the mouse, not the pen. Nebo’s supporting documents imply that you can ink a web address and translate that into a link, but if the function’s live, it’s not immediately obvious how to initiate it. 

Otherwise, MyScript’s Nebo is leaps and bounds ahead of Microsoft’s Windows Ink. Windows Ink has potential, but for right now, Nebo is the more useful tool.
