I was anxious to try the ability to sketch, draw, etc in Notes - but it appears that's not working yet in Beta 2. Can anyone fill in details when that will be available?

Thx

Re: Notes (Beta 2)

I'm actually just waiting for Apple to put a universal note list back into Notes. I hate this whole thing of having all my notes separated by account. I want to see all my notes in one list, and I haven't found a way to do that in iOS 9.

Okay, they need to have that fixed by the time the Public Beta hits.

I agree, in the meantime I just found a workaround, you can move your notes to iCloud, thereby creating a singular list within iCloud.

I've had mine that way a long time. It also prevents you from losing notes. Sometimes an email account gets turned off in Settings. The Notes then vanish to the email Notes folder. Many don't know that and think they lost the Notes.

Unless I'm misunderstanding your post, the sketch feature works for me.

Did you enable anything?

It's not letting me????

No sir. I simply tapped on the new note option. There's a glitch to where when you do select to type a new note, the keyboard appears and block the tools at the bottom of the screen. Simply swipe down on the keyboard to reveal the sketching tool. Select it and begin sketching.

It could be because I'm on the public beta, but the keyboard won't swipe down for me.

While in the Notes app, select to create a new note. After that, place your finger in the center of the screen and then drag it down to the home button without pressing it. The keyboard should disappear from the screen, and within a second, you should see the sketch tool.

I'm such a dummy! I forgot I didn't upgrade Notes to the new version when I restarted after installing the beta. (I wanted to wait until I upgraded to the El Capitan beta first.) DOH! Thanks though. Got it working now.

I observed it only works in my iPhone if I select the upper left sign in the Notes App screen which will take me to the Folders. Then I select "ON MY IPHONE" and there I can work with the sketch. I can't see it in the original already created folder I was always using. Hope this helps.
