Engineering Paper

I’ve recently started taking all my notes electronically using my iPad Pro and accompanying pencil. I was introduced to this idea by Brett Larsen from Stanford. At his suggestion, I’m using GoodNotes as my note-taking app, and it’s wonderful except for one thing… Although it has a couple dozen papers to choose from, none was exactly the same as the engineering note pages that I’ve been using for the past couple of decades. Somehow, I could get use to writing on an iPad, but I couldn’t get used to being without my engineering notepaper. Thankfully, you can give it any custom paper as a PDF file. First, I tried scanning a sheet of my engineering notepad, but this didn’t work at all. Ultimately, I recreated it in LaTeX. For anyone else who wants to do the same, here’s a single page from an engineering computation pad (minus the holes).
