Noteshelf is getting really good these days, so be sure to check it out if you haven’t yet. When I opened it this morning I had a notice that there’s now support for handwriting recognition. I had a hell of a time figuring out how to work it, but it’ for searching only. And it seems to work well. This is likely a way better way to implement the tool, than converting handwriting to a typeface.
Update A couple of readers have pointed out that this also works to convert hand writing to text. I couldn’t figure it out, but I am told you select the hand written text with the cut tool then tap the tool again to get a dialog. Neat.
