And eh ... technology different enough from Wacom ... isn't the Onyx using Wacom tech?
No, the digitizer is from Hanvon. While it is the same kind of technology (Wacom's patents expired years ago) and is probably very similar in most regards, you cannot use a pen from Wacom on a Hanvon device and viceversa. As I told, however, the accuracy is quite good and I'm even trying to use the M92 as a USB digitizer — well, at least it is in my ToDo list

I do not think crosslinking several documents with notes is good idea for M92.

I do not say, I would not use it. I would like it, but we should stand on the earth.

There is already problem for general users to copy annotated file from one folder to another or to another M92. (Two files must be moved actual document and database that is in .onyx folder). And now imagine you have many crosslinked files and some of those files are crosslinked via another note document.

You move a single file and you get lost.... I do not say it could not be programmed in some way, but if it really should work, the whole system of adding, removing and moving of documents would have to be redesigned...

I am not sure if anything like that exists even for PC....

While creating notes, clippings and having crosslinks maintained by e-book seems to be solvable for Onyx. And brings quite a lot.

If one would like to process multiple documents with notes, he could join them to a single document first and then do the work.

Well, I was only piling on the skycastles of others before me;-)

But, seriously, it is no biggie if the links in the note document go stale when moving things around. What I imagine would really borrow the Pocketbook idea of storing snapshots of the marked content and an associated text/scribble along with a link to the original that degrades to file path and page number if the file is not found anymore. The link being active and serving as shortcut to opening the concerned document is added sugar on top. If you mess around with files, you loose the sugar coating, no big deal. It is still at least as useful as the paper variant of such notes. No need to solve this tangled problem of keeping links in sync. Just do the simple thing.

What would be exportet to the PC would be a PDF with the collected snippets and notes, with information about file / page / author / title / ... of the regarding documents. Having the links still working order would just be a bonus but only provided if you keep a fixed file system layout. On the other hand, if it's research articles: When the DOI is noted, you got your link to the resource right there.

Actual text passages in those snippets should be preserved as searchable text ... helping to keep track of where you got which idea from (this seems to be something German politicians have trouble with regarding their dissertations).

But anyhow, this was only a tangent to begin with. My concern is multitasking, which also shines through in your suggestion:

This would be a prime example of offering multiple simulatenous views into the same document. You sometimes need things side-by-side. Even in normal single documents, you might want to have that feature (an index of math symbols with their meaning along with a page full of formulae using them).

In fact, this is something in that eReaders have a hard time competing with printed paper: You can have tens of sheets of paper distributed on a desk, all viewable side-by-side. The expensive electronic gadget has only one screen (or perhaps two) ... this is a distinct disadvante that needs to be tackled with some genuine UI ideas. This is no impossibility, you just have to get on with it and do it _right_.

Well, I did not mean multitasking in joined documents into one. I meant that if one wants maintain the integrity of links for several documents, solution would be to join them into one. And at the end join this joined file with clippings and notes into one pdf file.

One would have all resources at hand with working interlinks between actual text and clippings.

My long desired feature is the export of pages or even better sections of pages with scriblings. One could make notes to text and at the end pdf "extract" would be created. It seems to me really cool and easy to implement. A big book might shrink into several pages of interest.

Well, I've seen the thread about multitasking being somewhat there now and decided to jump the bullet since the DR1000 is just too unusable because the battery is always flat. I hope Booxtor is not getting my money for nothing.

I must admit I'm a bit confused about current state of Open Source firmware (kernel was there for a moment, then gone?) and unsure this Android thing, but I hope the current (experimental) firmware will be workable. And when it crashes ... you better have my scribbles saved automatically!
