Draw your Conclusions - Agenda 8 brings Apple Pencil support. 🥳

You’ve might have already seen or even tried it, we’re thrilled to have launched Agenda 8.0 for iOS and iPadOS, introducing Apple Pencil support. Even before Agenda for iOS was released just over a year ago, we started getting requests to add support for Apple Pencil**. We are thrilled to let you know that you can now sketch out your ideas, write down your thoughts, and literally draw your conclusions using Apple Pencil, directly in Agenda.

This is just the first step; it is simply impossible to deliver everything you have asked for in one go, things like handwriting recognition, inline drawing, aren’t yet possible today. But rest assured, we plan to continue to deliver more possibilities in this area, gradually over time. Be sure to keep an eye on this post and invite you to leave your feedback there when it comes to what you think is missing or can be improved ***.

This release also brings a new premium feature: the ability to annotate images attached to your notes. Just tap-and-hold the image, and choose Annotate in the popover menu, in order to draw on top of the image. Add remarks, highlight important aspects — you can draw whatever you wish.

We hope you like the new Apple pencil support in Agenda as much as we do. After you’ve upgraded to iPadOS 13.1, make sure to give it a try! Note that if you don’t see the option to add a drawing under the plus menu in the bar above the keyboard, here are a few things to check…

**) Talking about popular requests, this topic was viewed more than 15k times, and has over 200 replies from more than 80 different users, wow, thank you for the many suggestions and so much great feedback!

***) For example, we have just submitted the 8.0.2 update for review, which will allow you to grow your drawing dynamically if you need more space, allowing you to scroll if needed

Introducing Apple Pencil support on iOS devices running iOS or iPadOS 13.1 or higher.

Update: If you haven’t done so make sure to update to Agenda for iOS 8.0.1 which improves compatibility with iOS13.1.


Very nice feature. I have created both annotated images and created a drawing. It took me a little time to figure out how to create the drawing. I did find the note here about the plus sign. It would be nice if this note had accompanied the newsletter. Even a very short screenshot or movie would help.

Thanks for the feedback, indeed updating the How to section is still on my to-do list for this week.

Excellent addition to Agenda!

Question: is it possible to crop Inline images? I’ve searched and cannot find the capability.

Glad you like it!

Question: is it possible to crop Inline images?

You mean as in edit the image? No, attachments are not editable yet I’m afraid, the workaround is to open the attachment in an external editor, make the edits, save it to say the desktop, and replace the attachment in your note with the edited copy. We hope to make this easier in a future update.

Thanks, I’m really liking the Apple Pencil support / feature thus far. It was pretty rough w/ the first release, but the 8.0.2 release smoothed things out a lot.

The infinite scrolling w/ two fingers is great. My only top requests would be (1) ability to select option to only draw w/ pencil, so you don’t accidentally do so with one finger, and (2) some option for lines/guidelines/graph whatever. Don’t need anything fancy, but just to help with handwriting.
