Syncing from Livescribe+

Recommended Posts

Hi, as a newbie I'm hoping someone can help.


I've started using Evernote again after quite a few years of not touching it. The main reason is that I've just bought a Livescribe 3 pen and am loving it so far. However, when it syncs the contents from the Livescribe+ app, on several occasions it has created a duplicate notebook within Evernote. So I have my Notebook 1 with all my notes in it - I go to a meeting and take a few pages of notes. When I sync this with Evernote it has either created a new "Notebook 1[2]" and put all content in there, OR, today it created a new "Notebook1[2" with just the new notes from the meeting. I then have to move them all into the real notebook and delete the duplicate one. It doesn't always do this - sometimes it works just fine, adding the new notes to the existing notebook.


I'm hoping someone else has seen this behaviour and has found a way to prevent it.

Hi Jack

I have been using LS3 and EN for a couple of years now and must agree that it is a great tool. 

I read some time ago that this type of thing can occur if you have automatic sync set on multiple devices. 

Good luck and regards

Hmmn.  Still worth reporting to both Evernote and Livescribe when it happens - one or other may be able to prevent it altogether!

I believe the issue is the multiple device installation of Livescribe+. I had the same issue using my iPhone and iPad. I remove the software from the iPad and only use my iPhone. The issue never re-appeared.
