Will I be able to use Apple Scribble (in iPadOS 14) instead of the electronic keyboard in Miro, especially to create sticky notes?

Hey @Gerhard du Plooy,

While we are waiting for other community members’ comments, can you please answer a couple of questions - do you want to create a sticky note, write text with a pencil on it and expect it to be automatically converted to normal text? 

Hi Marina.

First two - yes. Third one will be nice to have but not required.

Hi @Gerhard du Plooy

Thanks for the question! We have some issues with Apple Scribble on iPadOS 14 Beta, and we’re working to fix it. I can’t give you the specific date, but we’re aware of it.

Hi @Tolya Filippov  - after an “upgrade” to ios 14 I am having problems with both the app and web versions of miro and the pencil.  To be usable at all I had to turn off scribble and “only draw with the apple pencil”.   But now other things are strange - if I click on a frame then the menu that usually pops up which would allow me to delete will not appear reliably.  Also the menu that is usually on the left of the screen which allows me to pick the pencil or load apps etc disappears.  Reloading the page will sometimes fix it and sometimes not.   I am using miro to teach my class remotely this semester but it seems not trustworthy at the moment.

Hi @rhaynes, sorry to hear that!

after an “upgrade” to ios 14 I am having problems with both the app and web versions of miro and the pencil.  To be usable at all I had to turn off scribble and “only draw with the apple pencil”.

Could you please elaborate on which problem is solved by turning off scribble feature?

Yes, unfortunately, we have this problem and it occurs when the board becomes too big, so RAM is not enough for it. It’s because iPads have less RAM than PCs.
Could you please tell me your iPad model?

Hi - it is a ipad pro 12.9 inch.
