Automatic Handwriting Recognition in the Character Pad
By default, your handwriting is not recognized as text in the character pad until you move your tablet pen away from the screen or move it to a different space. If you want Input Panel to recognize characters before you move your tablet pen, you can set it to automatically convert each character that you write to text before you move your pen. You can also control the length of time before the character is recognized as text. You can adjust these settings on the Character Pad tab in the Options dialog box.
