    Hi there...when you mean your friend "formats it" than sends it back to you, what do you mean? Why not use a Word Processing App, like Pages or so. Than you can format the document immediately and send it off once completed.

    Welcome to the iPadForum! This Forum offers so much information related to the iPad and its use. The IPF has many discussion topics related to: Acessories, Help, Apple News, Hacking, Gaming, Business/Education, Special Needs and Health.

    The iPadForum also includes a Regional Ipad Group for international users across the world. This is a wonderful area to "find" members from your own country.

    If you have not done so, please take a look at the iOS 5.0 and 5.1:

    What format do you want it to end up being in?

    So, is it a Word (.doc), text (.txt), or rich text (.rtf)? Or something else?

    Once you know that we can suggest a good app, or apps. You'll either be able to type the notes up directly, or use copy and paste from the Notes app if you prefer.
