Version 3.0 - November 6th, 2014

Echo Desktop for Windows, version 3.0, is the update to Livescribe Desktop, version 2.8.3. Because Livescribe now offers three distinct smartpen models, Livescribe renamed Livescribe Desktop to highlight its support for the Echo smartpen exclusively.

System Requirements:

  • Windows 7 or above.
  • Echo Desktop requires users to update their smartpens. Smartpens updated in Echo Desktop will not be supported by Livescribe Desktop.

Customers on older operating systems can continue to use their current version of Livescribe Desktop, however support for Livescribe Desktop will be phased out.

Echo Desktop brings three core improvements to its previous version:

  • Pencasts and notes are now shared through Echo Desktop’s native Share menu; we’ve removed the auxiliary sharing application, Connect.
  • With the closing of the Echo Community for pencast sharing, Echo Desktop dissociates the desktop software from the Livescribe website and MyLivescribe.
  • Echo Desktop incorporates the new export format, Livescribe PDF, which replaces previous pencast export formats.

Other Improvements:

  • Streamlined user experience.
  • Ability to export, email, open, and play Livescribe PDF documents.
  • Installing the new Echo Desktop will uninstall previous versions of both LD and Connect; this is not reversible. Users cannot have Livescribe Desktop and Echo Desktop both installed on his computer at the same time.
  • Echo Desktop will not display any part of Livescribe Online or MyLivescribe within the app; relevant navigation buttons and menus will launch the user’s default browser.
  • Many bug fixes and stability improvements.

Known Issues:

  • The Echo Desktop for Windows Sharing menu does not appear under File in the top menu bar. To share from Echo Desktop for Windows, select the notes you want to share, then right click to see the Share menu.
