In all the years prior to getting a laptop, or hell before adapting fancier than vim methods of typing notes—I wonder how the – to + thing never occurred to me.
Generally speaking, if I tended to take more free form transient notes, I’d probably adapt the rest of that method to my notes. Typically my work notes revolve around pen driven swipe typing, and my home notes on handwriting to text conversion. Getting just quick unconverted handwriting usually means that I’m stuck in a meeting or footing it between server racks.
