Apple Pencil

Diarly supports using the Apple Pencil on iPad for writing and for drawing.

Writing with Apple Pencil

On supported iPad models, you can use Apple Pencil with Scribble to enter text. Open Diarly and start writing with Apple Pencil, and your handwriting will be automatically converted to text. Scribble converts your handwriting to text directly on your iPad, so your writing stays private.

Drawing with Apple Pencil

Apple Pencil can also be used to insert sketches and drawings. To add a drawing, start editing the text and then tap the brush icon above the keyboard. After you have finished and closed the drawing editor, you can later reopen and modify it again.

Sketches on Diarly

To resize or remove an existing sketch, first tap on it to display the image editing options.

  • Drag the resize handles on the left and right of the drawing to resize.
  • Tap on the menu icon on the top right corner to access features like editing and removing the image.

Scrolling with Apple Pencil

Because Scribble is enabled by default, scrolling can be done by either scrolling with Apple Pencil on the empty space on either side of the editor area, or by using a finger instead of Apple Pencil.
