GMAT - erasable notecards

Anyone recently take the GMAT and have any experience using the erasable notecards they give you for scratch paper? I looked over, and I couldn't find any details.

Any info as to how large they are/did they affect your test-taking at all. I'm assuming it will be a non-issue, but just wanted your opinions.

I found it to be a significant annoyance when taking the exam. My erasable pen did not write well and I had to hold it straight up and down in order to write. Needless to say I wasn't used to do math this way. In the end, it probably doesn't affect your score, but you'll take a few minutes to adjust which can be a pain if you are tight for time.
