The notebook is described as follows:

Using the Bluetooth technology of the Livescribe 3 Smartpen and dot paper, its content instantly appears in the app in real time.

The notebook features the iconic Moleskine design details, from the familiar rounded corners, ivory-coloured pages and ribbon bookmark to the elastic closure and “in case of loss…” label printed on the flyleaf. Its center-stitched binding ensures the notebook lies flat, for an enjoyable writing experience. The on-page commands which enable quick access to the app’s features, including voice recognition, have also been redesigned in the Moleskine style. Two bookmarks are stored in the back pocket with further commands for the Livescribe smartpen. Lastly, the debossed pattern on the cover subtly recalls the design of the smartpen, a perfect finish for this innovative tool that bridges analog and digital.*

How to Use Livescribe 3 Smartpen and Auto-Send to OneNote

Leave a comment

Livescribe icon OneNote 2.0 icon

With the latest update to Livescribe+ 1.3, you can set up the app to Auto-Send notes from any of the notebooks you write in to OneNote. The problem is, there were no directions on how to do this. After some trial and error, the solution was discovered. (Edit: There is now a post concerning this on Livescribe Blog page.)

[ To get 20$ off your Smartpen purchase from Livescribe, use my link. Enjoy! Please enter UBX15RAF93H2E at checkout (expires in 30 days). ]

Livescribe+ now has Auto-Send capabilities, which allows you to set up any Livescribe notebook with your Livescribe 3 smartpen to automatically send all your handwritten notes to a specific section in any of your OneNote notebooks.

LiveScribe and OneNote

First, set up a OneNote account and download the Microsoft OneNote App for Mac. (This explanation is for Macs. Presumably, the same thing would work with the iPad, iPhone and PC versions of the app.) Log into the OneNote App and create a new notebook like LiveScribe. Open the Notebook and name the first tab something like LS1. This named tab will be something you will be looking for when you go to send the notes to OneNote.

Second, download the latest update to Livescribe App and update your pen’s firmware.

Tap settings > Cloud Services > OneNote and enter your credentials. This will sign you into your OneNote account and authorize this app to access the OneNote notebooks. Give the app permission to do this when asked.

Now, write something in your LiveScribe Notebook and open the LiveScribe app to locate the page where you wrote the notes you want to send to OneNote.

At the bottom left, you will see the share icon. Tap it and choose OneNote. You will see a list of possible tabs in the various OneNote Notebooks you have. Thus, it is important to have tabs with different names so you will know which one you are trying to send the notes to. Tap on the name of the tab you want to send the notes to. The notes will sync.

Open your OneNote app. Go to the notebook and tabbed section where you sent the note. In the right column, you will see the page number of the notebook your notes are on. Tap that and the notes will be brought over into the OneNote page.

Your notes should now appear as a clipping in your notebook.

Presumably, a similar method exists for sending notes to Evernote.
