Livescribe Pulse Smartpen
Overview:
With this Pen, using special “dot” paper (notebook / notepad supplied with
Pen) you can record a lecture while taking notes. While recording, the pen
is linking everything you hear to everything you write. When you tap
anywhere in your written notes with the Pen, it locates the position where
you’re tapping, and starts to play back the audio at that point in the
recording.
Using the “Myscript” application, your handwritten notes in “Livescribe for
Desktop” can be converted to text format, edited and saved on your
computer.

Getting Started:
1. Firstly, the Livescribe Desktop software must be downloaded to your
computer before connecting your Smartpen. Be sure the Livescribe
Desktop software is installed on to the computer where you want your
notes and audio to be stored. Ensure that the Smartpen is registered
on-line to avail of ongoing up-dates.
Also, if supplied with your smartpen, download and install the “Myscript
for Livescribe” .
(For more detailed instructions on downloading and installing Livescribe
software, see the livescribe user manual at www.livescribe.com/install)
2. Charging the Battery of your Smartpen:
Important: Do not attempt to charge your smartpen via any means
other than the USB mobile charging cradle provided in the box with your
smartpen.
Plug your mobile charging cradle into the USB port on your
computer and wait a few moments for your computer to recognise it.
Place the Smartpen in the mobile charging cradle. A battery and
lightening bolt symbol will be displayed on the Pen when it is
charging.
A full charge can take up to 2.5 hours. Note: the Pen will require
charging each time after 3-4 hrs of use.
Check the battery level regularly by tapping your pen on the “battery”
icon, in the “status” area on the inside cover of your Livescribe
Notebook.
3. Setting the Date and Time:
Press the Power button to turn on your Smartpen. As the Smartpen
2
starts up, the display shows the words Livescribe and then Starting.
After start-up is complete, the display shows the time. Before using
your Smartpen, you must set the Date.
Set the Date by tapping the pen on the relevant printed buttons in the
“Settings” area on the inside cover of your Livescribe Notebook.
It is critical that the correct date and time is set because audio files
you create are named using the time & date they were created. Also,
the Smartpen presents the date format as mm/dd/yy by default.
If you make a mistake in setting the time, simply tap on the “Set
Time” button again and start over.
4. Renaming your Smartpen:
Open Livescribe Desktop
Dock the Smartpen
Choose Tools > Smartpen > Rename
At the prompt, type the new name you have chosen and click OK.
When finished, press the Power Button to turn it off.
5. Writing and Recording:
Power on your Pulse™ smartpen by pressing the power button.
If needed, remove the protective plastic coating from your ink
cartridge tip. All new ink cartridges have this coating to prevent the
ink from drying up.
To begin recording audio while you write, tap the tip of the Smartpen
on the record button
on the bottom of your notebook. While
the Pen is recording, an incrementing timer is on display.
Begin writing on your Livescribe™ dot paper notebook. As long as
the smartpen is on, it will capture any handwritten notes and
drawings.
To pause recording at any time, tap the tip of the Smartpen on the
“pause” button, and tap the “record button” to restart.

Helpful Notes:
You must turn on the smartpen when you want it to capture your written
notes or record audio. Your smartpen will not record audio unless you tap
the Record button on a notebook.
When asked to dock your smartpen, make sure to use the USB Mobile
charging cradle.
Livescribe notebooks provide printed buttons you can use to view and
change settings. It is best to tap in the centre of these buttons
You can configure your smartpen display for either left- or right-handed
use. Tap the appropriate button to configure your display orientation.
Renaming your audio files
It is advisable to rename the files on your computer.
It is also advisable to add to the existing name (i.e. date/time), date of
lectures may be very relevant when searching through audio files later.
Viewing Storage available:
Tap the storage button once to see amount of remaining storage and tap a
second time to see the remaining recording time. (based on current
settings)
If you see a circled exclamation mark indicator on the right side of the
display, check available memory as it is almost full.
It is advisable to carry a spare ink cartridge. The Smartpen does not
warn you before the cartridge is suddenly empty!
Replacing the Ink Cartridge:
You can use the USB mobile charging cradle to remove and replace ink
cartridges and styluses.
Insert the smartpen ink tip into the ink cartridge removal ring.
Tilt the smartpen so that it firmly rests against the removal ring and lift
the smartpen away from the ring.
Lifting the smartpen away from the cradle will safely separate the ink
cartridge from the magnet inside the smartpen that holds it in place.
Place your new ink cartridge in the smartpen.
Before using the smartpen, be sure to remove the protective plastic
5
coating from your ink cartridge tip. (all new cartridges have this coating
in place to prevent the ink from drying up.)
Calculator:
The calculator located on the inside covers of your notebook performs
basic math functions, as well as many useful scientific functions. To use
the calculator, tap on the printed keys with the tip of the Smartpen.
It is advisable to download from the internet Livescribe Pulse Smartpen
updates from time to time.
For filing / easy access
If you wish, you may use one notebook at a time and remove pages
relating to a specific lecture. Afterwards, you may wish to file these pages
with other material on that topic,
If, for any reason, you’re unable to write complete lecture notes in your “dot
paper” notebook, just write the slide number on the “dot paper” each time
the lecturer presents a new slide. In this way, you will be able to select to
listen to the audio relating to any specific slide.
Troubleshooting:
If you notes don’t appear on the screen when the smartpen has been
connected to the computer, remove your pen from the cradle and write
any text in the relevant notebook, on the last pages which appears on the
screen, tap “record” and tap “stop” buttons. When you reconnect the
smartpen to the cradle, this problem should be resolved.
