Markdown Support with Handwriting Recognition (OCR)
Markdown would be a great way to markup hand-written documents that could be transformed into actual formatting when the handwriting recognition is applied. Perhaps not everything, but a subset like bold, italic, line breaks, paragraphs, and lists. Check-out https://commonmark.org/help/ for more info.
Under consideration App Feature Suggested by: Eric Schultz • Upvoted: yesterday • Comments: 15
The app feature is cool, but need tweeking on the spacing after it is transcribed. Everything is on the left of the page and does not follow the actual outline that is put down on the paper. Basically transcribe in the exact or close to the same way it is written. Also integration with Microsoft word and excel.

While the symbols on the bottom of a page are a great shortcut for destinations there are not enough for my usage of RocketBook and likely no matter how many you add there will not be enough for someone.
It would be nice to be able to set the destination via a tag on the page, such as "@@name" where via the app you could then map that name to a destination. For backward compatibility, the scanning app could look for this notation n the same areas as the icons exist today. If an icon is selected things work as they currently do; if some write "@@name" over the icon space that is used.

Smart Titles are great, give us more options to help us format text on the page. These could be used to insert paragraph brakes too and make text much more readable

Yes, I love using my RB for taking notes and writing out processes. BUT I have to do tons of reformatting later on.
An outline mode would be awesome
The OCR in Rocketbook is available in English.
I write in Dutch and would love to convert Dutch handwritten tekst into typed tekst too.

This is essential for anyone wanting to run OCR over their notes. At the moment there is far too much post processing required for it to be truly efficient
I use RB for work. I would love to see the ability to use OCR in outline form (otherwise RB is generally useless for my notetaking style). My notes come back jarbled and I spend too much time reformatting.
The ability for OCR to recognize markdown would be a breakthrough feature.
Also the ability to not only specify the title, but also write out save location within a destination, such as creating a new folder name via file path taxonomy would be really helpful.
I definitely support the idea of allowing written tags or labels, similar to how Google keep allows you to use a pound symbol to add a label to a note.
I am already writing my notes in markdown so I really hope we can get the support for it.
At the very least, recognize bulleted or numbered lists. Full markdown options would be fabulous.
+1, markdown would be awesome
I definitely need a tag so that we can have the system put a space (extra line) between notes when it transcribes. Currently I keep some form of separation between my daily notes by numbering each of them. But the ability to put a space between them would make it so much easier easy to review the notes at a glance and keep things neat. You already have the double hashtags for titles, why not integrate a combination like #@ to tell the system to put an extra line in there
I would love to be able to use Markdown formatting in my Rocketbook notes. It seems like a natural extension of the Smart Titles and Smart Lists features, so hopefully it won't be a huge project.
Support for Smart Tags in OCR is also a great idea, and seems closely related to the Smart Titles and Smart Lists features as well. I was actually surprised when I learned that Smart Tags had to be added via the app – I was expecting them to be handwritten like Smart Titles.
I like the idea of setting destinations via handwritten tags, but care would be needed not to complicate the existing icon system. I use a Fusion for work and a Panda for personal planning, and send most scans to OneNote. I'm fairly new to Rocketbook, and I'm still refining my system, but I do find the icon system a bit limiting when I'm keeping work and personal destinations separate. I will put more comments about this in a separate feature suggestion.
