Dot Paper

Livescribe dot paper uses standard paper printed with a unique pattern of dots that allows your smartpen to capture the exact location of everything it writes or draws. Livescribe smartpens only work with Livescribe dot paper.

  • How do the Livescribe 3 Paper Controls work?

    The Livescribe 3 smartpen reads the controls that are printed on Livescribe dot paper notebooks. Your smartpen recognizes the controls using the unique pattern of dots that accompanies the printed controls and relays the relevant information to Livescribe+.

  • What are the star, flag and label icons that are on my Livescribe notebook pages?

    The icons are pre-printed controls that allow you to tag your handwritten content. Just tap the relevant icon on the paper and start writing. Once it is synced to your device, Livescribe+ will organize that content into easily viewed groups that can be accessed under Collections in the Left Panel Menu. You can also add tags to snippets from within the Livescribe+ app.

    Livescribe+ for Android does not yet support tagging. Stay turned to our blog for updates.

  • What types of paper does my Livescribe 3 smartpen use?

    Your Livescribe 3 smartpen is compatible with all Livescribe notebooks. Livescribe dot paper is available at competitive prices in a variety of paper types, bindings, and sizes: blank, lined, or grid paper in spiral-bound notebooks, hard-bound journals, notepads, and even sticky notes.

    Although many Livescribe dot paper products contain controls that are not relevant to the Livescribe 3 smartpen, your smartpen will still work with these notebooks.
    Note: Sound Stickers will not work with Livescribe 3 smartpens.
