"Dual i.MX7 processor, 2GB RAM, newer version of Android and dual touch."

@fgdaS

Any source for that? No time to look that up at the moment, hints welcome. Just seems to me -you- said that somewhere up in the thread, not Booxtor.

And as far as I'm concerned: I'm not interested in dual touch in a device for reading and notetaking that comes with a stylus, thank you. Those devices (got an old entourage edge myself) are for work, not entertainment. Far better to develop good, precise and responsive functions for notetaking.

Weight? Really? I don't find the weight an issue with the device at all. Actually, I'm not so certain that I would want it any lighter than it already is unless it had some kind of metal casing. I would worry about it breaking when I put it in a bag or snapping in half while taking notes.

For note taking and drawing, a precise stylus is definitely the preferred way to go. However, the ability to pinch zoom for pictures and diagrams would be beneficial.

It would also be nice to be able to use the ereader if one lost one's stylus. I think it would be pretty difficult navigating the Max without a stylus, which is why I bought a replacement stylus at the same time I ordered my Max.

So having a device with dual capabilities would certainly be a plus.

Problems with PDF export on boox max

I'm having problems with export of PDF notes. I tried both Neo 2, and old Neo. Neo 2 gives bigger problems. It is basically unusable. Here is what it looks like on the screen:

and this is what it looks like exported:

(I'm sorry, it could be that the pics are from different tries, but you get the gist). The export is basically unreadable.

On old Neo, this is what it looks like on screen:

and this is what it looks like exported:


Here the export is readable, but it is much too fat. I can't send this - it looks bad.

The result of export should basically look like what you see on screen. Same line width.

True. And in line with that, another suggestion for the Max would be the ability to take a screenshot.

I'm sorry, I had a typo. I wanted to resize the images to 600, but mistyped and one got 699. good it wasn't 6999...

BTW: why not add the images requirements to the attachment area of the edit form? Where it says:
Quote:
Valid file extensions: avi azw azw2 azw3 bat bin bmp bz2 doc docx enews epub gif gz hsc imp ipk ixl jar jpe jpeg jpg kml lit lrf mobi opf pdb pdf pl pm png prc psd py rar recipe rtf sdl site sxl tar txt xml xpi zip?
I guess you're also worried about links to external images. But it would be good to have it somewhere on the form, on not just in the posting guidelines.

And, or course there is the additional possibility of specifying max width for the browser, supposedly by adding the following to the css:
Code:
img{
  height:auto;
  width:auto;
  max-width:600px;
  max-height:600px
}
Which, if it worked, might solve all these headaches....

attached images can be any size. Only inline images are restricted, since they can impede the display of data making the screen really long, particularly on mobile devices.

fgdas: you are actually right concerning some Max 2 specs assumptions. Max Carta (same specs as Max but equipped with new Carta screen with higher resolution will be available very soon (in 4-5 weeks).
Max 2 (detailed specs are confidential yet) will be also available later this year.
All I can say, Max 2 in comparisson with current competitors (GoodEreader /Netronix and Dasung monitor) would let all them look rather dreary.

My wife will be very pleased when the Max 2 comes out as she is greedily hoping to inherit my current Max when I make the change.
