Simplified Screensaver – Non Author (Smart Typewriter)
When resting, your device will cycle through a collection of stylized famous author illustrations that currently consist of:
- Isaac Asimov
- Charles Dickens
- William Shakespeare
- Agatha Christie
- Edgar Allan Poe
- Jane Austen
- Alexandre Dumas
- Mary Shelley
If you would prefer a blank screen instead, it is easy to switch the rotating screensavers off.
Note: The Ernest Hemingway Freewrite Signature Edition does not display the above authors. Instead, it displays a portrait of Hemingway. However, this can be changed to the simplified screensaver, as well.
To turn the setting off on your device, please make sure you device has the most updated firmware. To update your device, please follow instructions detailed here: Firmware update procedure
