Onyx Boox Max 13.3" How to trigger screenshots
#1  eng10110 04-22-2017, 09:46 AM
Hello Onyx Boox Support;

I accidentally managed to trigger a screen shot (thought it was not possible) on the Onyx Boox Max 13.3" running 1.8.2 firmware.

What is the proper procedure to trigger the screenshot and where are they kept?

press page up + page down simultaneously

I'm trying to do this on my Max 2 Pro, under firmware 2.3.1. Doesn't appear to work. The screen refreshes when I press the two buttons simultaneously, but no folder "Screenshots' in storage so if there are images I'm not sure where they have gone.

Feel free to say RTFM, but I'm puzzled why this button press sequence no longer seems to function...?

Hm, okay they've changed it to a screen tap combo, I suppose because most Boox products no longer have page turn buttons...

Touch two corners simultaneously to trigger screenshot, brings up a dialog with options to save or share. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vdI1aGojOiU

Yep, got it now, thanks.

Pity they didn't keep the button combo too, but the screen corners works well.

Hadn't known about the screen corners option. Very useful.

Another option is to use the screenshot function on the floating navigation ball. Up until now, that has been my method, but I might just change it.
