Can you make the default input for writing a sticky note etc the apple pencil. At the moment every time you click on a stick the keyboard appears and you have to change mode for every sticky which can be infuriating. Miro is a great tool in part becaus of the pencil so if you can atune it to pencil use that would be great.

Hi @DannyB , this behavior should work on iPadOS 14 with the iPad Scribble feature. If you create a sticky note with your Pencil, then the keyboard won’t appear and you’ll be able to hand-write with Pencil on a sticky. Then handwritten text will be transformed into editable text.

We have some issues with this on iPadOS 14 Beta, and I can’t give the exact ETA to support it, but we are aware of it and working on it.

When reviewing the Tablet App help article, Miro notes:

You can use any type of pen tools on a tablet - Apple Pencil, Surface Pen, Samsung S Pen, etc. However, a special navigation mode for digital pens has not been implemented yet.

Hopefully they will include an option to set your default input method. Yep - this is definitely worth posting a Wish List Idea :relaxed:

Sounds good. Hopefully we get the choice as to whether to convert it. One of the joys of this tool is using the pen on sticky’s and keeping it handwritten.
