I extensively use markdown to take notes and render it in Html or PDF (using Pandoc). I have a Wacom stylus. And I want to take hand-written notes (specifically, lecture notes).

I want to embed these in the markdown such that it can be rendered (at least in HTML, would be great if it does in PDF also). Also, I would like those files to be embedded in an editable format. Preferably I don't want to use binary formats. And, would like open formats.

It would be OK if the handwritten notes were just embedded as images, but I am hoping to have option to edit those notes. I'm using Ubuntu 18.4.

Any suggestion?

  • Could you please detail how you need to edit embedded notes? For instance can it let you draw on the images, or call an external image editor? – Nicolas Raoul Jan 21 at 1:42
  • I would like the handwritten notes to be edited in its native software, which supports tools for handwritten notes (like xournal). I would use the stylus to create and edit the notes. – Nikhil Jan 21 at 8:59
