    Heyhoo,

    I got my new sp3 i3 and I'm really fine with it but I noticed, that in the reader application the pen resolution is much lower than in onenote..
    Anyone noticed it? It's pretty shit to make some notes in my scripts if it's not possible to write with precision in pictures or something else.

    The Reader app does this. It's not a very good app.

    Drawboard PDF works a bit better but it's quite buggy, unfortunately.

    My solution is to print my PDFs to OneNote and annotate there.

    The Reader App is very basic and the Ink implementation is very basic, I use Drawboard PDF and I do recommend it if you need native inking on a PDF. Some have had issues with it but I use daily without issues....

    Does your ink not randomly disappear an re-appear when you are writing?

    It did a couple of Revs back but it was fixed. Heck PDF Annotator used to crash and I would lose all of my annotations ...
