Step 4: Essential information for operating the Slate

Pen Detection 

With the Slate, you can write on a single sheet of paper or a notebook (up to 1.5 centimeters | ¾ inch thick).

When the pen is detected near your sheet of paper or notebook, the lower LED shines white. 

When you begin to draw, the upper LED shines purple. This indicates that your penstrokes are being recorded. 

Using a Notebook with the Slate 

If you are using a notebook, it's important that the paper sits flat on the Slate's surface. A notebook or drawing pad with a top-bound cover is ideal since it allows the paper to sit flat on the Slate. 

Choosing the Notebook Setting in Imagink

If you are using a notebook to draw with the Imagink app and did not select this option when you first connected the Slate to Imagink, you will need to select this option in the canvas by following these steps: 

1. Click the Layer icon.  

2. When the pop-up appears, click the Notebook tab.

3. Slide the switch so that the notebook icon goes from gray to white. Click in the app canvas to make the pop-up disappear after making your changes. 

If you are using a notebook, it's important that the paper sits flat on the Slate's surface. A notebook or drawing pad with a top-bound cover is ideal since it allows the paper to sit flat on the Slate. 

Placing Your Paper or Notebook on the Slate 

For an optimal experience, make sure that your paper or notebook does not contain metal parts (spiral binding, etc.).

When you start drawing with the Slate, place the sheet of paper or notebook you are using on the Slate between the area limit points.

Do not move the sheet of paper or notebook while using the Slate.

Using the Right Pen Angle

Tilt your pen at an angle greater than 10 degrees to the Slate’s surface while you are drawing.
