Ah interesting, can you maybe shed some light on the eraser workflow?

Did they really just deleted the feature to delete with the pin of the pen?

Actually it works just fine on my side in the most current pre-release 1.9.0. Press the side button and the tip of the pin works as eraser. Additionally for fine and more agile erasing you can use the white colored pen (change color)

Ah i must add, I use the reMarkable pen because in combination with a matt screenprotector, it increases the feeling of writing significantly.

So do I read it correctly that your mentioned workflow does not work with the reMarkable pen?

Extended version sounds exactly like what we need for the actual main release.

Yes, release prepared for Note and Max2. I didn't test OTA from cloud yet, since we are working with downloadable files. Our extended version should be available next week

Booxtor,

No OTA as yet - I'm in NYC.

Any links to where I can download this?

I'm also in the USA. The international version isn't available yet. You can either wait for Booxtor's extended version, which you will be able to download from here when it's ready, or you can check the Onyx International site, here, to download the standard version when it is available. If you go there, be sure to click "English", then "support", then "downloads". Whatever is available will appear there.

Ah, When Booxstor said, "July 2" I assumed this was the date to attempt the update.

I'm new to Boox so please forgive me. Your links are very helpful, though obscure - no way I could have found those on my own,

I'm new to Boox and not yet familiar with the ins and outs.

Thanks, again.

I thought so, too, at first. But he also said that his update would be ready next week.

That said, I have enough experience with Boox updates to know that we should never hold our breath when given a date. Delays are not unusual!

I,m afraid... Booxtor seems to be missing in action...
Worst of all, he has lost the promised firmware with him...
