Chapter 9. Collaborating with a Tablet P... > Office and Windows XP Tablet PC Edit...

Office and Windows XP Tablet PC Edition

Office 2003 was built with the Tablet PC in mind, so it not only recognizes that it’s running under the Windows XP Tablet PC Edition, but it also adjusts the Office features and interface to take advantage of the Tablet PC. Some of these adjustments are relatively trivial—such as displaying the Task pane at the bottom of the screen instead of the right side—but others are more profound, as you’ll see in this chapter.

Understanding Ink Integration

One of the biggest changes you get with Office 2003 running on the Windows XP Tablet PC Edition implements ink integration. This means that a new object type called Digital Ink or, simply, Ink becomes part of the Office system, like the AutoShape and Text Box object types, for instance. In fact, Ink objects are part of the Office drawing layer that holds AutoShapes, text boxes, WordArt, pictures, and so on, and you can format ink like other drawing layer objects by changing, for example, the text color and line weight.
