reMarkable 3 Beta First Impressions
I’ve been using the reMarkable 3.0 Beta for the past week. Here are my initial impressions.
Being able to extend a page beyond A4 size is a huge improvement. Often I am forced to start a new page to continue a thought. Being able to have one page per ideas is very nice.
Being able to extend a page also opens up a better workflow to have one page per day. Previously, I couldn’t fit my notes for a given day on one page, so I didn’t attempt this. This works well now!
The ability to scroll pages is excellent, but I wish it remembered my scroll position when I leave the document and come back.
The new extendable pages now make using the reMarkable in landscape mode desirable. You can get a larger working space while still having as much height as you need. Excellent.
Landscape mode still doesn’t allow you to view the gallery in a landscape orientation. This makes landscape mode feel half-baked.
Being able to undo and redo actions via a two-finger tap is excellent. The only time I use the eraser now is when I need to erase something I wrote awhile ago.
The idea of typing in a reMarkable document makes a lot of sense once it’s hooked up for typing within the reMarkable app. It is not hooked up yet.
If you try to SSH into your reMarkable, and it closes the connection, you can fix this by remove the host from your known_hosts file.
I miss DDVK hacks, but I’m sure they will support 3.0 eventually.
