Yoga Book C930: storage of notes

2018-10-07, 9:11 AM

dear all,

 

this new book is fantastic!!

 

but a question. Where does it store the e-ink notes? and how does the handwriting recognition work ? (there is a menu item for that)

Don't have a c930 myself but one trick I've used for this sort of problem is to click on "Save as" (doesn't matter if there's only a blank page to save) and make a note of where it will save it from the address bar - you can then look there to find things you already saved. You could make a shortcut to that location then if need be.

Don't know if it will work in this case but it might.

 

My guess otherwise would be that there's a folder amongst your user folders with a name like "e ink notes" - or perhaps just the Documents folder, or possibly Pictures if it's effectively a drawing (listed under This PC or Quick Access) but I imagine you would have looked there.

In Sketchpad it's the Pictures folder where files are saved.

 

For handwriting recognition I think you will need a paid version of Office and use One Note. Unless there's a Lenovo app already installed that does it or possibly something from Wacom - I had a quick look but nothing jumped out at me.

Stefan is most likely asking about the eInk part, which UI is not Windows-like. So such thinks like Save as-Dialogs and so.

 

The eInk "Power Off" images are stored here: C:\Program Files\Lenovo\EinkSDK\EinkSettings\Pic

So you could try to find the pages somewhere below C:\Program Files\Lenovo\EinkSDK\

At the momen, the whole eInk part looks heavily isolated. I was hoping for a much deeper integration into Windows.

I mentioned Sketchpad only because the publicity pictures seemed to show the E-Ink display with what looked like Skectchpad, or something built with the same components as Sketchpad is. The reality may well be different, but somewhere in the User folders would seem the most likely place for the program to default to.

yes, I agree. I don't think but I hope Lenovo will improve here. I had the rM with a well working note management. Currently I don't know that to use the eink panel for as I have to cpy all into whatever other software in order to manage the notes.

 

And, btw, PDF annotation on the eink is also not possible

Like I said I don't have a YB c930 myself so I can only guess.

 

Are the files in a place you've already looked but ignored them because they were given odd names - perhaps named with the date and/or time?

 

Are they going straight to your One Drive storage?

 

Seems very doubtful, but could they be going to your file transfers folder? - look under Settings>Shared Experiences and you should see the path to where that is.

 

Can you find a settings page in the app - may have a default location setting there which would tell you the path to it.

 

(I don't mean to be rude, but have you read the user guides - it might just be mentioned there.)

 

After that, I'm out. I'll leave it to anyone here who actually has one!
