2. all handwritten pages in a document to PDF,
3. or the whole document to a PDF.

We want to be able to copy our handwritten PDF's to another computer. We want a "save as" option so we can create a new file that we can save to a location on the Mimas of our choice. None of this is possible since the latest update.

I do not want to upload my PDF's to a 3rd party app like Evernote. The current "export to local" that you describe saves the file to html not PDF. That is useless to me.

Please examine the PDF Reader in Onyx Boox products for guidance on how to create a useful PDF annotator.
will feedback your requirment to boyue team, i think they change the save format from PDF to HTML may for some special purpose

While I'm also interested in an answer to your question, you've done exactly what you asked me not to do! It seems that the only way to get an answer to a question or provide feedback relating to any Boyue product is to grab the attention of the Boyue reps on the few occasions they appear on this forum. If there was an official Boyue support forum this wouldn't be necessary.

this is not a bug, they made it as intend, below is the reply from boyue team for your reference.

1. we change to export as HTML, the reason is because of we would like to give the user second time edit, they can edit it any format they want
2 new firmware we will support automaticallly save in the PDF file after you writing, means you can copy this whole book to PC already with handwriting anotation( now no this feature)
3. if you just want to save single page separately, you can export as HTML format---the reason is because some user need send time edit it in PC or somewhere
4. we are developing the export to Email feature to make it save to clould once the device is broken or lost
5. now we are working for the forum issue but not confirmed which solution is best for us, so moslty we ask user feedback it to likebook@boyue.com

What's Android without google play store as far as I know for 6 downwards you can only install it. I know you can sideload but that's a bit iffy.

now boyue are investing more developers to optimize their firmware and add some new feature. in my opinion, they are noticed the forum user's compliant and working for it, each brand have it's advatange and disadvantage, i hope boyue devices will get better and better, after all, we can not ask one device to meet all demand

I needed to use the tool to flash a new firmware for my Mars in order to have Google Play Store. That is not a problem for me. If Boyue is looking for people to test out the Android 8 firmware, I would be happy to do so on my Mars!

i used a lot devices like onyx, remakable, sony etc. for big size device, i more like boyue device for the price even somewhere firmware not so good. but at least the price looks more competitive and many features are good enough.

Likebook ALita will be delayed several times.

He'll have to wait for ALITA. its release is delayed.
Developers want to work harder on ALITA and tweak SW.
IMHO that same thing was just one big commercial move on future customers, -)

I don't really understand the delay.

Is the reason to make bigger difference with Mimas so the owners will be more likely to upgrade to Alita? I highly doubt anyone who owns Mimas will be wiling to shelf that kind of money for upgrade to Alita with or without updates. If anything they will be angry if only Alita gets the updated software and not Mimas.
As incentive for new buyers? The Goodereader review was positive even on current SW and they can always do the updates with already released device?
The HW gets out of date pretty fast and each month that already finished device don't get on the shelf the competition could come out in with devices with even more compelling specs.

So I've actually been talking with likebook for a while, and I've got a better understanding as to what they're doing.
The "update" that is making the Alita does not directly have to do with the Alita itself, but Likebook just wants to offer more features that make the device more appealing+fix some issues. In fact, the Mimas is planned on having the same update too.
Apparently, the Mimas and Alita won't be very different from one another- unless you really need the extra 4GB ram and flush screen, the extra 100 dollar price tag plus the smaller battery doesn't make it look too good. In fact, they even recommended me to buy the Mimas if I don't need to read huge pdfs or do multitasking.
The Mimas and Alita are BOTH being planned for Android 8.0 support since they are quad core.
They'll apparently be having a sale next week for their anniversary- it'll be a good time to buy the Mimas, which is what I'll probably be doing.
