My university requires us to scan homework to PDF and send it via the website, and I have a problem using paper because my writing is messy. I saw some students using an iPad or a Chromebook to write directly on a PDF ,using the pen with the device, and it looks so clean and if there is a mistake they can always press Ctrl+Z. I'm using an Acer Laptop with Windows 10 Home without a touch screen, Is there a software that lets me write PDF files with a mouse that is close a real life pen effect ( I searched online for softwares and there is a lot of options and I can't test them all), other than getting a new device?

  • writing or drawing with the mouse is even worse. I don't have too bad handwriting but I always struggle with my mousewriting. You can use a handwriting font and type with the keyboard – phuclv Mar 23 '19 at 9:38
  • @phuclv I'm gonna be mostly writing math with it, calculus, linear algebra, and discrete math, for a year. My main problem is with tidying and not writing in a straight line.. – Mahmood Jazmawy Mar 23 '19 at 9:42
  • Maybe use LaTeX and one of its front-ends (no experience with front-ends). – albert Mar 23 '19 at 12:05
