I've exported as RTF notes that had insane mixtures of text, ink text,
shapes, and sketches - also class notes. They exported just fine, and
all the drawings showed up in the right place relative to the text. I
thought they hadn't at first, because I checked them on - SimpleText
maybe? - which can do formatted text but doesn't support RTF images.
(I'm used to it being all or nothing - unformatted text and no images,
or formatted text and images.) Then I tried it on a word processor with
full support for RTF images, ClarisWorks I think. AppleWorks, MS Word on
both Mac and Windows, and OpenOffice on Linux showed the images just
fine as well.
The only gotcha I found was that my Newt had a limit to how many notes
it could export at once - I'm betting it's a heap limitation. For me, it
worked out to a 1MB RTF file as output. Rather than select everything
and then look for where it got cut off, I exported one week's worth of
notes for one class at a time, which was under 1MB.
