                              THE PULSE PEN

Description

The Smart Pen is a 8GB digital pen that works with special dot paper and your computer.
It records as you write and links it to audio so that you don’t miss what is being said in
lectures or meetings. To hear what you recorded on paper just tap on what you wrote.
You can transfer your notes and recordings to your computer to play them back by
downloading the software to your desktop. The ‘desktop’ software gives you a page
viewer to search, view and replay notes. You can also become a part of the online
community which allows you 50MB of online storage space for posting and sharing
content. Other features are: a printed calculator for scientific, financial, and statistical
equations, and a simple calculator that can be launched and used on any dot paper.

HOW DO BINAURAL RECORDINGS WORK?

Binaural recording is a special type of stereo recording that uses two microphones, one
placed in each ear. This type of recording provides the most accurate spatial sound
quality because the microphones effectively mimic your ears - when you play a binaural
recording back, it sounds like you are actually in the location where you recorded.

Once you record audio, you can play back the binaural effect using stereo earphones. You
can also play back the binaural effect as a regular stereo recording over any type of
headphones or speakers.

COPYING CONTENT FROM PULSE PEN

When you dock your Pulse™ smartpen to your computer, by default, Livescribe™

Desktop automatically launches and begins transferring content from your smartpen to

your computer. When transferring content to Livescribe Desktop, the original content

remains on your smartpen. In this sense, transferring content actually means copying the

content from your smartpen to Livescribe Desktop.

Important: Once you have docked your Pulse smartpen, do not remove it from the cradle

until the content transfer is complete. Livescribe Desktop will display a message

confirming the transfer was successful and it is safe to undock your smartpen. Also, make

sure to use the USB Mobile charging cradle that came in the box with your product.

Smartpen models that have a power symbol printed on the power button are only

compatible with USB mobile charging cradles that have SKU: AAA-00012 printed

underneath. These cradles are compatible with all Pulse smartpens.

If you are connected to the internet, Livescribe™ Desktop will also automatically check

the Livescribe web site to see if your version of Livescribe Desktop is current and if the

software and firmware on your Pulse™ smartpen are up to date. If your system needs

updates, Livescribe Desktop will ask if you want to update now or be reminded later. See

Installing Updates.

         How do I delete sessions using my Pulse smartpen?

     NOTE: Once you delete a session from your Pulse™ smartpen, your paper notes will no
     longer play back the Paper Replay audio that was associated with that ink. This deletion
     is permanent. Unless you have transferred the session to your Livescribe Desktop the
     session will be lost.

1.     After turning on your smartpen, double-tap the center of a Nav Plus and your smartpen
     should display Main Menu (see your Pulse™ Smartpen User Manual for descriptions of
     Nav Plus ).

     paper replay files have been removed from your smartpen.


         After taking some notes and docking my smartpen, the notes that transferred to
          Livescribe Desktop look like I scribbled them, as if my smartpen ink cartridge
          was not taken off of the page.


     If the notes that you transferred to Livescribe Desktop look like they are all linked
     together (as if your smartpen never left the page while you were writing), this can occur
     if the smartpen infrared light is staying on even when the ink cartridge is not pressing
     against the paper.

     To resolve this please try the following:

     Remove the ink cartridge and replace it with another one, or place the original back in the
     smartpen.

     For instructions on removing your ink cartridge please reference the "Replacing the Ink
     Cartridge" section of the "Pulse Smartpen User Guide". You can access the guide by
     opening Livescribe Desktop and selecting the top menu "Help" option.

     Hard reset the smartpen by pressing and holding the power button for 10+ seconds. Your
     pen will restart in a recording session and will turn off again. It will then restart with the
     message “livescribe… Starting… Checking filesystem”.

     Now try writing several words in your notebook and lifting your smartpen off the paper
     between words. Then dock your smartpen to transfer your notes to Livescribe Desktop.

     If the new transferred writing shows all of the separate words are connected by ink,
     please let us know.
