Q: How do I write on the Tablet PC using Microsoft Windows Journal?A: Windows Journal is a new note-taking utility that is only available in Microsoft® Windows® XP Tablet PC Edition. Windows Journal lets you write notes in you own handwriting in the same way that you write notes with pen and paper. However, because the ink is an actual data object and not just a picture or image file, you can convert you handwriting to text and can enter text into notes. you can also draw and include graphical files in notes. Furthermore, because Windows Journal performs background handwriting recognition on ink, you can quickly and easily search through the handwritten ink files stored on a Tablet PC hard drive.
Features of Windows Journal include erasing, highlighting, formatting text, inserting space, dragging and dropping ink, recognizing and converting shapes, and formatting lists.
When using Windows Journal, you can take notes on multiple pages just as you would in Microsoft Word, and then save those pages as a note file. The notes can be printed, copied, and deleted, just like any file in Windows.
At the top of the first page of each Windows Journal note file is a space to write a title. The file is saved as a Windows file, and its default Windows file system name is the recognized text of what is written in the title area.
As you take notes, Windows Journal also performs handwriting recognition in the background, enabling you to search across all of you note files in real time. Because the recognized text is stored in the background, you can accurately search for specific text in you handwritten notes, either within a note, across all notes within a folder, or across all notes stored on your Tablet PC hard drive.
