What Will Happen When You Tap Twice on BOOX Neoreader?
It depends on what you’re tapping.
When introducing new features of the V2.3.1 firmware, we mentioned that hand-drawn shapes and underlines have different recognization patterns from hand-written texts.
In this article, we will explore the differences and show you how they will perform upon tapping.
After underlining the text with a stylus, you can tap twice on the line to change it into a straight line. The annotation toolbar will pop up upon recognition. You can change the annotating straight line into other styles, such as highlighters and dashed lines. However, if your hand-drawn underlines hit the text or are too curvy or tilted, the recognition may fail to change them into annotations.
If you want a printed consecutive straight line without the annotation toolbar showing up, you can deselect the “Underlined text is recognized as highlight first” in Neoreader’s settings.
Shapes will be recognized into different marks based on their positions.
If you circle a part of the text area, the circled text will be highlighted. And you can change the highlight style on the annotation toolbar.
If you draw a circle or any other common shapes, such as triangles and rectangles, on the spacing areas, these hand-drawn shapes will be transformed into regular printed shapes.
Random hand-drawn straight lines rather than underlining the texts will be changed into relatively thick straight lines.
As for hand-drawn curvy lines, the recognition will turn them into different printed lines or shapes based on their tracks.
Hand-Written Texts Combine with Hand-drawn Shapes
Hand-written texts merging with hand-drawn shapes can be recognized, but the transformation accuracy is higher when texts and shapes are put down separately
One More Hack
After you enable “hand-drawn symbols ✳ are identified as bookmarks” in the Neoreader settings, you can double tap your hand-drawn ✳ to see the change. You will find the page is bookmarked simultaneously as the symbol disappears.
