How do I print my own notepads/notebooks using Livescribe Desktop?
To print your own notepads/notebooks using Echo Desktop, for best results we recommend you use a color, LaserJet printer with an Adobe PostScript driver that can print at 600 DPI. The Paper Size should be set to "Letter (8 ½ x 11 in)". Try printing a test page to ensure your printer will work.
To print a notepad:
- Open Echo Desktop.
- Windows users - From the top Menu select "Tools > Printable Notepads". Mac users - From the top Menu select "Tools > Print Your Own Notebook…" This will open a page in your default browser. NOTE: Works best with Chrome (Win and Mac) or Internet Explorer (Win). Firefox and Safari can take much longer to load the page and may cause printing errors. If you experience a problem, try copying the URL and pasting it into Chrome.
- Click the Print button to open the print options. NOTE: The page(s) will need to completely load before the icon bar appears with the Print button. Mouse over the bottom areas of the window to see the button bar.
- Before printing, be sure the Size Option is set to "Actual Size" or the equivalent such as "Page Scaling: None" (not "Scale to fit", "Fit", or "% of actual size").
- Select the LaserJet printer and click "Print".
Some browser plug-ins emulate Reader but do not print with the same quality as Adobe Reader. If after printing, the smartpen does not react to the dot paper, try downloading the PDF to your local machine by mousing over the notebook link, right-clicking (Win) / control-clicking (Mac), and selecting "Save link as…" Once the notebook is downloaded, print it using Adobe Reader with "Page Scaling:" set to "Fit to Printable Area". Also make sure you are printing in color, not black and white.
