Step 1:

First select 'settings' from the app's drop down menu (three vertical bars, on top right).

Step 2:

Under the Tools menu we are going to check the option for 'Quick Custom Pencil Settings'

This option will allow you to double tap custom pencils in the pencil toolbox, and make changes to each pencil individually.

Step 3:

Now open a new or existing notebook. In the notebook double tap the pencil icon to select 'Custom Pencil Settings'

In the custom pencil settings dialogue we can choose any of the pencils to modify. I have number 10 chosen here, which I have made into a highlighter.

Line width: sets the pencil width

Alpha: sets the transparency

Softness: sets the intensity

Use the color wheel to modify the color options.

Pencil is pressure sensitive: will choose width and intensity based on stylus pressure

Pencil is velocity sensitivewill alter the intensity based on speed of the stylus

Pencil does not leave round but flat end: when checked you will have flat ends, good for highlighting, when unchecked you will have round ends

Pencil does not draw in front but behind other color: While I don't have this option checked myself, this is very helpful for the highlighter custom pencil. This feature forces this pencil to draw underneath other drawn writing and objects, thereby not obscuring the item it is highlighting.

Pencil is eraser: negates all but the line width, and makes the pencil an eraser

If you have the pencil toolbox enabled you can double click a custom pencil and edit only it's settings the same way as the previous menu.

Hi Simon,

Unfortunately, I use this app on the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1. Although, I do have a similar issue with the menu bar, for which there are a few solutions.

Disable the back button:

Go to Settings > Display > System and Status Bar (bottom of page)

and check mark the "Disable back key" option.

On rooted devices only, hide the menu bar:

Go to Settings > Display > System and Status Bar (bottom of page)

and check mark the "Hide system bar"

Hope this helped!

Hi,

I have a problem using leacutenotes on sony z tablet.

When i use "zoom box" to input handwriting, i put my hand rist on the screen and it press the home/back buttons, that cause the app to be minimized.

Do you know any setting / option how to avoid this?

Best Simon
