Microsoft this week released a new beta version of its Office app for iPad with support for Apple Pencil’s handwriting Scribble feature. This feature lets you insert and edit text in a Word document, PowerPoint presentation, or Excel spreadsheet using Apple Pencil, with handwriting automatically converted to typed text.


After enabling the Scribble feature in Settings → Apple Pencil, the feature can be used by tapping the Scribble Pen button under the Draw tab in Office app version 2.64. The feature can be tested now by members of the Office Insider program via TestFlight, and the update will likely be released on the App Store for all users in the coming weeks.

Scribble was added in iPadOS 14 for any iPad that supports the original or second-generation Apple Pencil, including any iPad Pro, third-generation and newer iPad Air, fifth-generation iPad mini, and newer, and the sixth-generation and newer iPad.
