  • Create notes and add them to entries

Graffiti® 2 writing and the onscreen keyboard make it easy to enter information and capture your thoughts and ideas. You'll get the hang of writing pretty quickly, but a few tips and techniques can speed you along. Graffiti 2 writing is the system your handheld uses to translate your stylus strokes into letters, numbers, and punctuation marks. You can also type with the onscreen keyboard or buy an optional keyboard (see page 141).

Write on the whole screen

You don't have to limit yourself to the writing area

From the Home screen, select Prefs > Writing Area. Tap On and check Show pen strokes.
Open an application such as Memos and try writing anywhere on the screen.
Tap the small purple square in the lower-right corner to toggle the feature off and on.



The writing area

You write Graffiti 2 characters (see page 41) in the writing area–the space between the navigator and the screen. Write on the left side of the writing area for lowercase letters. Write in the middle for caps, and on the right side for numbers. Try the tip to the left to actually see your strokes as you make them.


Alternatives

Jot (www.cic.com) and TealWrite (www.tealpoint.com) are replacements for Graffiti 2 writing that use different characters.
