Which format should I use to save the notes?

Asked by Jeppe Bundsgaard

What a great idea to make an m210-application for linux!
I am trying to save the data from my pen - but which format (i.e. which extension) should I use to save the data? I have tried with jpg, png and tiff - nothing seems to be accepted by my image applications...
Best regards, and thanks again!

I'm glad to hear that you find it useful :-).

The latest release (0.3) saves notes *only* as a raw note stream into a single binary file (called raw file from now on). The file-extension does not matter, it's probably better to omit it completely. Raw file contains all notes in it.

Notes can be exported as svg-files with m210-export-notes command, run from the command line. For example:

m210-export-notes --input=filename_of_your_raw_file directory_name_where_svg_files_will_be_exported_to

I'm fully aware that this is no as usable as it could be, the next release will make it all simpler:

- svg-preview
- saving notes as a raw file or as a collection of svg-files
- ...
