I definitely want and need a handwriting feature for many reasons. A basic one already mentioned by @irasanchez is the possibility for free flow brainstorm style writing that includes words, drawings, and doodles.
Is there a plugin that enables some basic handwriting?
I’m not here to argue if it is possible to do it somewhere else and import it into Obsidian. Of course that is possible and I am using an iPadPro with Apple Pencil to write notes in Noteshelf, Apple Notes, Craft, OneNote, and MarginNote. Each has their strengths where and when they shine and so I use them accordingly. I’m not looking to replace the other apps but I want to be able to effortlessly create handwritten notes as the situation arises within Obsidian without having to leave it and continue my work somewhere else only to then having to export it and import it to Obsidian. That would be fine if the notes are complete and won’t change but having to repeat the process every time I make a change to my handwritten notes just wears me down too much.
It is very clear to me that the little frictions in workflows often determine the longevity of an practice I try to keep up. So even though I can move anything into Obsidian, I can see that unless I can create it directly in it or if I can pull in the data in an automated way, I end up not moving it over as much.
As a tool striving to be my second brain, I’d expect it to have a path towards handwritten note creation at least in some basic form.
