How do you write on PowerPoint on the iPad?

PowerPoint is on your side. Using your Apple Pencil, write straight on a slide, then hit the Ink to Text button in the top right corner. Using the Lasso Select tool, select your scribble and the program will instantly transform it to legible letters (or suggest a few options for doing so). If you get stuck, the Scribble feature allows you to draw freely on the screen and use text boxes to type out your notes.

How do I write a spreadsheet on my iPad?

In a word-processing document, tap the Apple Pencil in the body of the document where you wish to write. In a word processing or page layout project, you may also touch onto a text box, shape, or table cell. Begin by selecting the Scribble tool from the toolbar at the bottom of the screen, and then begin writing. As you write, the iPad will detect what tool you are using and it will switch automatically to that tool. For example, if you lift the pencil off the screen, the tablet will recognize this as your choice of tool and it will switch immediately to handwriting recognition.

When you're done writing, press the Pencil back down on the screen to end the stroke. The iPad will now ask if you want to save your file. If you choose "Yes," the document is saved under the name you provided during creation. If you didn't provide a name, the file is simply saved under a temporary name until you save it again.

You can open and edit existing Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint files directly on your iPad. Most documents will open without any trouble, but some formatting may not be preserved when editing documents created with different versions of these programs. For example, older versions of Office required margins on pages, while newer ones don't; therefore, when opening an old file, you won't be able to see any margin space on the page.

The good news is that you can change all of this.
