Can you please put a spine on the top? Us lefties have fun I write starting from the back of the notepad so that the spine is on the right. Thanks!
Physical Product Request
Top is not enough for lefties, at least if it's a spiral one. I have the same issue (lefty), and left or top spirals don't work.
@Olivier -- do you have any suggestions re: notebooks that work well for lefties? Thanks!
Spirals placed on the right side and the pages in reversed order would make them a left handed notebook.
Can I suggest you add a setting to the app, which simply reverse pages when scanning. That way we can continue to use the notebook in reverse, but upon scanning the documents are correctly ordered?
@Steven Chen, @Olivier Fontana, @Bryan McGrew: I think the issue isn't that of the spiral location, but that Frixion ink smudges. The only solution I've found is to write at a sharp-angle so my hand doesn't sweep over the fresh-ink.@Stephen S: I've seen folks write in reverse and it's a super-trippy amazing skill. Is that what you do? If so, props to you!
Better yet, eliminate the spiral altogether. As a lefty, I was immediately bothered, but I'd imagine that righties would be equally bothered on the even-numbered pages.For many years, I've used a simple paper notebook from office depot. The front, back, and spine are vinyl; the spine includes an inside pen holder, and the replaceable paper pad is held in a sleeve into which it slips in from the top. This both eliminates the spiral and offers a protected pen holder.
Please contact me when there is a "LEFTIE" Rocketbook available
Ink smudging is, unfortunately, a necessary evil. Top spiral is better for Lefty use because you can write end-to-end on the paper without ever running into a spine. Hopefully, you will come out with a lefty rocketbook soon because I will buy it.
I also use it backwards or turn the spiral to the top. As a lefty there has never been much choice. Top bound is my personal preference, but I can and have written backwards. I find that as a lefty, writing vertically from right to left avoids ink smudge. Like traditional Japanese.
+1 to the idea of fixing this in a SW way
+1+1+1 for Top-Bound+1 for Left-BoundI'm not leftie but see why left-side spiral notebook is a problem. I've used Top-Bound "Steno Pad" style paper pencil notepads for years but of course get tired of trying to figure out what to do with the stacks of archives. Just opened up my Rocketbook One (6x9) ... pretty cool, but am already thinking "If they just had a Top Bound ..."
Do not turn the spiral to the top. Turn it to the bottom. I use only the left side of the pages, scan the whole bunch, wipe them clean, turn the rocketbook upside down and then use THIS left pages.
I use top-bound notebooks. I write left-handed and the top bound is perfect. But my wife writes with her left in such a way that top bound does interfere. There will be no way to please everyone. I use the Rocketbook sideways placing the spiral on top so it would be nice if pages could be rotated in the app before sharing. However, top bound note books are everywhere and solve many problems for both right-handed and left-handed people. So I suggest both top-bound and rotating scans in the app.
Ok, yes, pretty please with cherry on top! Lefties like me will thank you!
Yes, please. Need, need, need left-handed version w/ spiral on top or bottom
Yes please!!! Spiral on the other side!!!
Yes, please offer a full size notebook with a top binding! As a lefty I have used top binding notebooks for years and they are great. i find little to no smudge issues using the Pilot Frixion fine point .7mm pens. Give some love to the 10%-ers!If you decide not to release a top binding option at least have the app recognize when the notebook is reversed and automatically flip the image so I don't have to.
Yes. Left handed version with spiral on top or bottom would be great
My boss is a Leftie. He merely flips the spiral to the other side. If you made the pages the same on the front and the back, people could use the Rbook any way they wished. And it would Double the number writing pages at the same time.
Ink smudge from pens and the binding are the 2 things that plague lefties. Please work on fixing this. If so, you will have hit a goldmine
Need a Composition style notebook version with no binding, I like to flip pages normally just can't stand spiral note books period, top bottom or in the center.
Isn't this the same suggestion as the steno style notebook? If the two combined we'd have well over 300 votes. I really want to see this, the spiral bump is a problem.
I would buy a leftie version. I was on fire to buy a Rocketbook until I read of the challenges I'd face as a leftie. Now, I'm in wait mode.
I think the spiral binding, although aesthetically beautiful, is the problem. I have found the best binding for right- and left-handed people is the "lay flat" binding used by Moo: https://gearpatrol.com/2018/03/23/the-perfect-notebook-for-left-handed-people/. Although I suspect this style of binding is more expensive than spiral binding, it would be of benefit to all of your customers, right- or left-handed. In fact, a great business partnership for you might be Moo: http://moo.com
@David GoldfarbYes! Eliminate the spine! But second to that would be spine on top or a legal pad format. PLEASE! :) #leftypower
I agree with Eliz., if the book is just flipped the other way and the scan options are on both the top and the bottom then it could be used either way. Add a checkbox or use the ## option so that the app knows the orientation and top of the page.
My wife surprised with an early Father's Day gift: the Everlast. I really like the idea of it. However, as a lefty, the spine is in my way. To solve this, my preference would be: 1) Move the spine to the top 2) Provide a "journal"-sized option. This helps reduce the "smudge" problem lefties have3) Provide college-ruled on one side of the page and dotted on the other. Or half the book be ruled and the other half dotted. This isn't a lefty problem, just sharing my preferences while I was at it
I'm a leftie and one of the things I love about my Everlast Mini is the top binding. I also like the bottom idea. I don't want any sort of book binding unless it allowed me to flip the book over and lay flat.
+1 for the lefty book (spiral on the right). As with traditional notebooks, I use my Rocketbook from back to front and in a portfolio. I don't mind using it this way, but a lefty Rocketbook would be terrific!
Would love a Steno-pad style notebook! I'm a leftie and it is very helpful for me to have the spiral across the top.
A notebook similar to the old fashioned steno notebooks would be ideal. That is what I use in regular notebooks to reduce smudging and not have my wrist over the spine.
I really want to buy this but at least the spiral is preventing me to run to the shop and get one. Already use the beacons for my whiteboard but now I really would like to have a more left-handed friendly executive A5 book preferably without any spiral at all
My husband and many of my friends are lefties, they have an issue with smudging the ink as they wright. Try working with pilot on making a faster drying pen?
I know this item is labeled done but I just got 3 notebooks and other than the flip the spiral is only on the left side I didn't see an option for lefties.
Lefties want a Rocketbook Fusion with Spine on Top or on Right!Or, maybe you could make it customizable, where people create their own Rocketbook, by choosing what type of pages and spine location they want. Kind of like building a pizza on an internet order.
The benefit to the spiral is I was able to take apart my new fusion and rearrange the pages to match my needs and put it back to gether again with ease. But if there is a way to make it easier for Lefties, that would be great. I noticed you all made a top spiral notebook, so my leftie son might like that.
Have you made a Fusion Notebook for lefties? When I bought mine in Dec, it wasn't available. Thank you!
