Great program for annotating PDFs or just taking notes. Works great with Wacom tablets and makes using handwriting on digital documents a breeze.

Saved my online class days. Stylus support, PDF annotation, care free save options. Even supports linux made me safe in every environment. Quick bars that can be customizable are easy to use.

This is a lightweight, FOSS solution to writing with a stylus on any desktop platform. You are probably going to be able to set this up to work the way you want it to. Wish it had better geometry tools, and wish the (unreleased) iOS app wasn't persistently neglected.
