    Digital pens combine affordances of paper and digital world. Documents with similar content could be combined into a single document called digital notebook. Our idea was to include the functionality of integrating different types of documents into a text editor, which enables users to edit the main document in one place. The application was developed for Livescribe and LaTeX because both tools are currently implemented among university teachers. Tagging helps to organize and search for documents in digital notebooks. This thesis suggests more efficient tagging by focusing on the tags and simple way of handling documents. The method used was design and creation complemented with interaction design. The work was evaluated with usability testing of the developed application. The results of the evaluation show that both solutions, embedding digital pen's documents into LaTeX and different approach to tagging of documents are useful in the research area.
