Frequently asked questions
Jot Script doesn't appear to be functioning at all, why?
Your Jot Script digital pen must be properly connected to Penultimate. Review this guide for tips on how to check your connection.
My Jot Script 2 indicator light is off. Is this normal?
Yes, the indicator light only turns on when the digital pen syncing, recharging, or when it detects that Penultimate has been launched. To conserve battery life, the stylus indicator turns off after a some time, but remains connected to Penultimate.
Is there a way to switch between writing with my Jot Script 2 stylus and writing with my finger?
Yes. Penultimate, by default, ignores anything else that touches the screen when it detects that you're using the Jot Script 2. This makes it easier for people who like to rest their hands on the screen while writing. To use your finger to write, simply tap the digital pen tool in the note toolbar and tap the stylus you'd like to disconnect.
Does the Jot Script 2 work with other apps?
Yes. The Jot Script 2 is compatible with a variety of other apps such as GoodNotes and NoteShelf.
How do I turn the stylus off?
You don't need to turn off the stylus. It automatically shuts itself off after two minutes of idle time. Because the stylus only turns on when it is being used, battery life is conserved.
