Video review on YT shows epub annotations are possible on the Sage.



9:00 minute mark. sideloaded epub

he sideloaded an epub via dropbox and annotated the book but the annotation stayed on the device only, but with pdf the annotation gets transferred to the dropbox pdf as well

That is to be expected. The PDFs are actually being changed to store the annotations inside them. Which is a feature of the PDF format. But, it isn't for epub.

But, there was definite report of not being able to annotation ePubs with the stylus on the Sage. Now I wonder what was happening. It is possible the reviewer is using a different firmware version than what was used for the report. Whether it is a newer or older, I do not know.

Probably an older fw. He said it was a review unit that he used.

I have a question re Elipsa (and Sage) handwriting to text conversion.

Is the conversion accuracy affected by the language?

I mean for non-English languages that use English letters, is the accuracy affected?

example:

If i write "dito" in Filipino which is "here" in English, will it be converted to "ditto", sort of like auto-correct thingy?

Or if i write "sino" will it be converted to "sine"?

The stylus doesn't work to write on kepubs, but it works as a "slender finger", on the Elipsa or the sage, but not on my Libra H2O. As such, it is easier to move the disks to adjust a selection to look for a word in dictionaries, or to select a sequence of words to underscore - which has the at first surprising effect that underscoring with the stylus point (apparently) on a kepub looks better than with the stylus button on a PDF.

I hope it will, though:

Supported file types
You can use your Kobo Stylus to write notes on these files:

Kobo ePub (.kepub)
ePub (.epub)
PDF (.pdf)
Note :Your Kobo Stylus cannot write notes on DRM-Protected PDF files and PDF files that disables annotations and markups.

Re the note-taking function: does it have a loop/lassoo tool that allows you to select some inking and do stuff like move or delete?
I find that v useful but havent seen anyone doing it in videos.

I'm also now starting to compare:
- Supernote A5X
- Boox Note Air

My key criteria:
* 10 inch+ screen, which can show book covers
* 32 GB+ storage
* Good note-taking, ideally including lassoo
