Do you have to install the firmware as well as the update?

I haven't tested the pdf annotation feature yet, as right now I have no PDF lying around to try it out on. But, I was able to install only the update without any further errors or problems, and I am sure it was installed, since after completion the stand by picture I set was changed to a default one.

I downloaded the E-Ink update then I tried it on a PDF using the pen. You can underline, circle or write text notes. You can also change pen colors, but that will not show up on the eInk display. You can still take screenshots of the PDF which will be saved to the clipboard and can be pasted into other notes. This is a terrific addition. Thanks Lenovo.

What I have tested was to make sure annotations carried over to the PDF file, then open the file in windows.  They did.  I am very satisfied by this update.  they new file browser is a very nice touch.  The UI now blends well with the note taking UI.

Hi everybody,

I'm using the new functions for some weeks and it is very great. I had dreamed for it since the beginning! Many thanks to Lenovo!

I can have my kindle books on the e-ink (the EPUB reader as far as I have understood its functionality is far too poor). There is one more remaining issue with the necessity to have a mouse pointer set to size 7 to be able to have it on the e-ink screen. It's too cumbersome on the LCD screen especially and to be honest quite impracticable.

For me, the next BIG improvement would be to have a line feedback on the e-ink screen in graphic tablet mode that would allow a completely seamless feeling in manuscript writing! If only it could be then the input box of the manuscript input from windows: it would be “bingo”!

Thanks once again to the effort of the developing team…

Best regards.
