After the most recent firmware update, the Max 3 has completely broken palm rejection and broken writing on e-books.
Resting the palm on the screen while writing on a PDF causes the device to recognise a "pinching" action and to randomly zoom the screen in and out. The palm also sometimes highlights words and causes the dictionary definition to come up. Even worse, the zoom function becomes laggy and sometimes stays zooming in and out for 30 seconds after I have lifted my palm off the screen.
It is clear from these problems that palm rejection is very broken in this firmware version and it makes writing on e-books almost unusable.
The second problem is that when writing on an e-book, if a finger or small section of palm moves back and forth from the right edge of the screen (assuming you a right-handed) it causes the ink to create stray lines or the ink to disappear. This completely frustrates the writing process and makes writing on e-books almost unusable.
The two problems combined create a very buggy experience when writing on e-books.
This problem occurs with a full-size e-book or split screen e-book and note. It sometimes also occurs in the note writing app.
These issues are occurring on firmware build number: 2020-04-09_18-53_2_3_7c5d74f.
