Chapter 8. Using the Tablet PC Input Panel > Using the Input Panel Writing Pad

Using the Input Panel Writing Pad

Using the Input Panel in Writing Pad mode, you can use handwriting and gestures to speed up your data entry and to help you avoid using a keyboard—no matter what application you’re working in. This section shows you how to effectively use the Input Panel writing pad, and how to get the most from your pen. As mentioned earlier, you can enable the writing pad by opening the Input Panel and tapping on the Writing Pad tab in the bottom-right corner.

Note

Because the writing pad is geared mostly for words and not individual characters, it is usually more effective to use the keyboard for just a few letters or symbols. You may also want to use the keyboard when entering passwords for Web sites and the like, so that the password is not displayed in the writing pad.
