New to the note and I see there is quite a learning curve. Can you recommend, if one exists, a detailed guide to using the spen. I'm especially interested in apps that will alllow me to handwrite, turn it to text and then print out. Any and all guidance appreciated.
I personally have been using OneNote on my Note 8. I find it great. I take notes with the SPen, they convert to text. The notes then are synced to my laptop and my phone. For some meetings I also have the notes synced to team members at work.
As for using the spen I would follow Golfdriver97's suggestion and look at YouTube, there are some pretty good videos on getting started with the spen and Note8.
I use S Note and it has some nice features. The handwriting to text works whenever keyboard input is available by selecting the option on the keyboard, it's more an issue of finding an app that you like. Any of the office-like apps (you probably have Polaris) work as well.
