2) Zoom - You can now write on the page while zoomed in.
3) New toolbar
  • The best fix they made on this is the added "go to page" tool. This should have been there since the beginning in my opinion, but I'm glad it's now here.
  • The new toolbar is now either on the left-hand side of the page (by default). This can be moved to the right side of the page in settings or hidden if needed.
  • Tab list is now fixed onto the toolbar. A quick tap/press brings up all your tabs which can be helpful when you have more than 3 open.
  • Smoothening of handwriting seems to work much faster now too. It doesn't seem to take as long before smoothening (the pixelations on) whatever you write anymore.

These are the ones I've come across so far and have enjoyed.

On the downside, I've noticed that consecutive highlighting seems to be troublesome when using the pen button. It would end up inaccurately selecting a different text and bringing up the "highlight | search | google" option. For now, I'm bearing with it since I'm enjoying the other added features.
english or japanese version or both? thx

Detached stylus holder (not re-attachable)

[QUOTE=kaiser s;2922231][LIST][*]Be aware of what other things are in your suitcase/bag when carrying the device with the pen-clip attached. My clip got permanently dislodged after a day of carrying it inside a laptop bag with my laptop and a book inside. Some anchor attached to the clip got broken so it would not re-attach to the device anymore despite following the instructions in the manual.

Hi Kaiser s: I've had the exact same problem after carrying around the device in my bag on the first day of my actually using it

Since shipping back and forth to the US is an enormous hassle and there is no tech support in Europe for this device (am from the NL), I am curious as to how you fixed this? Could you just glue it back on?

Would appreciate any tips!

Two questions from me --

solved - provide not empty folder;
1. What is "Destination Folder" for BOX.COM DAV settings? How to fix that error?(1.3 firmware)


2. What is "Solution server" in Server settings?
What for? No info in recent manual.

Hi Glim,

How did you manage to import the Sony to the NL? We are somehow Neighbours as I live adjacent to you: in Germany. ;-)

I have recently recieved from ebay via Shipito 980+15+65= 1060 for me + 1 month of waiting .

1) You can ask your freind from USA

2) You can order debit card Payoneer(or virtual http://www.listsandyou.com/2013/03/1...-card-vcc.html), for example, and try to use it on sony.com store with Shipito address(they also have one without tax)

I managed to tear off my pen loop too and fixed it.

The loop is in two parts. One is the loop itself and the other is the plastic clip that attaches the loop to the frame. If the loop and clip stay together when it detaches, you're in pretty good shape. All you have to do is push it straight back in.

If your luck is as bad as mine, the clip is still attached to the frame and just the loop has come off. To fix, you'll need to pull the clip out, glue it back on the loop and put the whole thing back in.

If your luck is really bad, the clip itself is broken and you're pretty much stuck with ordering a replacement.

If you can see a plastic tab sticking out of the machine, it can be fixed. Besides the plastic tab you can see, the clip has a C-shaped section that attaches to a thin metal rod inside the frame. Basically it's a cylinder with a section missing down its length. I pulled the clip out by grasping one end of the tab with a needle-nosed plier and easing out one corner of the clip until the whole clip came out.

Once it is out, a little super glue reattaches the clip and loop. Push it straight into to socket in the frame, and you are done. In the troubleshooting section of the manual there is a picture showing how to insert the loop back into the frame.

I have my unit for about 2 weeks and going well enough, syncing with box.com is a bit clunky as I find I need to start notes from documents and the online folder rather than direct from notes. Otherwise it works ok, but I'd really prefer direct syncing with Evernote.

I've also found that if you send the notes onward some people can't see the annotations or writing on the notes, you may need to repair and flatten the odd before sending them onward which is a bit hit and miss. This may be a box.com issue though I'm not sure.

Has anyone sourced a better case for the unit? I find the sleeve quite flimsy and not suitable for such a costly device (especially getting one to Ireland!)
