Introducing the PenCentra 130 H/PC Pro
Chapter 2
Using the PenCentra 130
This chapter covers the fundamental concepts, basic system operation and use, and
system functions of your PenCentra 130. You should familiarize yourself with this
information before you attempt to operate the system.
Before Setting Up the PenCentra 130
2
Before you set up your PenCentra 130, there are two very important steps to perform:
• The display screen can be damaged with improper use. Be sure to install one of
the included screen protectors on your system. Reference the data sheet that
accompanies the screen protector for installation instructions.
• The system should be charged for a full 48 hours prior to first using it. The
48-hour period ensures that the main battery pack and the backup battery are
fully charged.
Setting Up the PenCentra 130
2
Turning the device off and on (suspending/resuming)
2
The suspend/resume button is used to stop and start the operation of your
PenCentra 130. Suspending system operation with this button does not shut the
system down, it simply “puts it to sleep” until you’re ready to use it.
To resume system operation, press the suspend/resume button on the top of the
system (see Figure 2-1). When you press the button, the system immediately “wakes
up” and resumes at the same point as when you suspended operation.

When you have finished working with your PenCentra, or when you will not be
using it for an extended period, you should suspend operation to conserve battery
power. There are two ways to suspend the system:
Note:
It is good practice to always save your active data before suspending the system.
Doing so ensures that no data is lost in the event of power interruption.
• Save your work, then press the suspend/resume button. The system operation
will immediately suspend. When you resume operation, the system will resume
at the point at which you suspended operation, or,
• Save your work, then click the Start icon on your desktop. Click on Suspend from
the Start menu. The system operation will immediately suspend. When you
resume operation, the system will resume at the point at which you suspended
operation.
Resetting the system
Note:
• Pressing the reset button while there is active data on your screen will result in
that data being lost.
• It is not necessary to use excessive pressure when depressing the reset button.
Excessive pressure could result in damage to the system.
In the event your system freezes up and does not respond to pen taps or keystrokes,
it may become necessary to reset the system. To reset the system, lightly press the
reset button (see Figure 2-1) using the tip of your PenCentra pen. When the reset
button is pressed, the system reboots.

Using the PenCentra 130
Using the Pen
2
You can use the PenCentra pen to generate and capture electronic “ink”, to select
items, and to navigate through programs on the pen tablet. The pen can be used like
a two button mouse when used in conjunction with the right-mouse button hotpad.
Programs that support handwriting recognition allow you to write characters
directly on the screen with the pen.
Caution
• Ensure that a screen protector is installed on the pen
tablet screen before you use the pen. The warranty does
not cover a screen that is scratched as a result of not using
a screen protector.
• Do not use a ballpoint pen or any sharp object on the pen
tablet. Doing so can mar or scratch the screen surface.
To toggle between using the pen for inking and using it as a mouse, click on the
small pen icon in the system tray at the bottom right of the screen.
Here are some hints on using the pen like a two-button mouse on a desktop system:
• To select an object, tap the mouse tip on the object once. This functions like a
mouse button click with the left mouse button.
• To “double-click” an object, tap twice on the object quickly.
• To “right-click”, tap the pen tip once on the right-mouse button hotpad, then tap
the desired object. (Hotpads are described in the section of this chapter entitled
“Using the Hotpads”). The right mouse function is only valid for a single tap.
• To move, or “drag”, an object on the screen, place the pen tip directly over the
object, then as you hold the pen tip against the screen, move the pen.
Calibrating the pen
2
You calibrate the pen to adjust the distance error between where the pen actually
touches the screen and where the system “thinks” the pen is touching. position on
the screen relative to the position of the pen tip. If the event you wish to invoke is not
displayed under the pen tip when you use the pen, you should calibrate the pen.
Using the Pen
2-3
Pen calibration may be required due to the following situations:
• The pen is being used for the first time.
• The previous user of the PenCentra 130 pen tablet writes with the opposite hand
or at a different pen angle.
• The system has been in use for some time and the pen has not been recalibrated.
To Calibrate the Pen
2
1. Open the Control Panel from the Start menu, and double-tap the Stylus icon.
Select the Calibration property sheet, then click on Recalibrate.
2. Position the PenCentra 130 pen tablet as you normally would during use. Be sure
to hold the pen at the angle that you regularly use. Touch the screen only with the
pen tip; if you inadvertently touch the screen with your finger or hand during the
calibration process, faulty calibration may result.
3. Perform the calibration steps according to the instructions on the screen. The
calibration utility displays a cross-hair symbol in the middle and corners of the
screen, one corner at a time. Hold the pen as you normally would while using the
system and, as accurately as possible, tap the center of each crosshair as it is
displayed.
A dialog box is displayed after you tap the last of the four cross-hair symbols. Tap
the screen within 30 seconds if you wish to save your new calibration settings. If
you don’t tap the screen within 30 seconds, the default calibration settings will be
used.
4. When the Stylus Properties window reappears, choose one of the following steps.
• If you are satisfied that you tapped the cross-hairs accurately, tap OK. The
taps that you performed in step 3 are then used to calibrate the screen.
• If you do not want to use the new calibration, tap the cancel box (X).
• If you want to enter a new calibration, tap Recalibrate. The calibration
instructions reappear.
If you have successfully performed the procedure above, the pen is now calibrated,
and you can use the system as you normally would.
2-4
Using the PenCentra 130
Replacing the Pen
2
With use, the pen tip may become worn or may pick up abrasive particles that can
scratch the screen. A damaged or warped tip may not move freely, causing
unpredictable results when using the pen. If your pen exhibits these problems,
replace the pen.
Inserting/Removing PC Cards
2
There are two PC Card slots in your PenCentra 130. With the system display facing
you, slot 1 is located on the left and slot 2 is on the right (see Figure 2-2). To install a
PC Card, insert it into the selected slot with the label facing towards the screen. The
shutter covering the slot folds into the system as you insert the card. Ensure that the
card is properly seated by firmly pushing it in until it stops. When the card is
properly seated, the ejector button rises to be flush with the system surface.
To remove a PC Card, first ensure that it is not running. Using the back end of your
PenCentra pen, press the ejector button for the card you are removing. When the
button is pressed, the PC Card is ejected from the slot. Gently pull the card from the
slot.

Charging the Battery Pack
2
There are two ways to charge your battery pack: while it is installed in the system or
with an optional battery charger (FPSI part number FMW51BC1). To use the optional
external battery charger, refer to the literature included with the unit.
Note:
An installed battery can be recharged while the system is running or suspended. If
the system is running, the amount of time required to charge the battery is
determined by the number and type of applications being used.
To recharge the battery pack while it is installed in the system, plug the AC adapter
into the DC input jack on the right side of the system. Insert the AC adapter’s
electrical plug into a wall socket. When DC power is connected to the system, the DC
Input LED on the front of the system is lit (reference the “Status Indicators” section of
Chapter 1 for more information).
Conserving Power / Optimizing Power Management
2
You can extend the charge life of your battery pack by conserving battery power. A
fully charged battery pack can run the system under normal use for approximately 8
hours. Your results may vary, depending upon the applications you use. Here are
some suggestions to help you conserve battery power:
Note:
Certain power optimization features may have been disabled by your reseller when
the pen tablet was customized.
• Open the Power Properties screen from the Control Panel. Click on the Power Off
tab, and set the length of idle time before you want the system to automatically
suspend. The shorter the period, the longer your battery will remain charged.
• Use an external power source such as the AC adapter to power the system
whenever possible.
• Reduce the backlight brightness using the backlight brightness hotpad (reference
the section of this chapter entitled “Using the Hotpads”).
• When you know you won’t be using the system for a long period of time,
manually suspend the pen tablet by pressing the suspend/resume button.
Using a Keyboard or Mouse with the PenCentra 130
2
Although the pen, on-screen keyboard, and handwriting recognition applications
allow you to enter any type of data into your PenCentra 130, there may be occasions
when you prefer to use a mouse or an optional PenCentra 130 keyboard.

Sending and Receiving E-mail
Using Microsoft CE Applications
Connecting to a mail server
3
You can send and receive messages by connecting directly to your mail server. Use a
modem to connect to your Internet service provider (ISP), or use a modem or
Ethernet card to connect to the local area network that your mail server is connected
to. In addition to creating a connection to your ISP or network, you must give Inbox
the information it needs to communicate with your mail server.
Note:
Inbox does not currently support connecting with proprietary mail protocols such
as AOL and MSN. However, you can still gain access to the Internet through
these services. There may be third-party programs available that would enable you
to send and receive mail through proprietary protocols. Try searching the Internet
on the keyword “Windows CE” to find third-party programs for your PenCentra
130.
Setting up Inbox for connecting to a mail server
3
1.
Get the following information from your ISP or network administrator: POP3
or IMAP4 server name, SMTP host name, user name, password, and domain
name (for network connections only).
2.
Select Start, Programs, Pocket Outlook, and then Inbox.
3.
Select Services and then Options.
4.
On the Services tab, select Add.
5.
Choose IMAP4 Mail or POP3 Mail, enter a name for the connection, and then
select OK.
6.
In the Mail Service Definition dialog box, enter the information from step 1. In
Connection, choose the remote connection you want to use. (If you are
receiving e-mail through a network connection, Select Network Connection.) If
you have not created a connection, select Create new connection, double-tap or
double-click the Make New Connection icon, and follow the instructions in the
wizard. When finished, select Inbox in the Taskbar and continue setting up
Inbox. For more information, see “Chapter 6: Getting Connected Remotely.”
7.
In the Mail General Preferences dialog box, select desired options.
8.
In the Mail Inbox Preferences dialog box, select desired options.
•
In When Getting Messages, choose how you want messages downloaded by
default. Choosing Get full copy of messages will take up more storage space
on your PenCentra 130. Choosing Only synchronize Inbox folder hierarchy
(IMAP4 only) will speed up the time it takes to download your messages.
Microsoft Pocket Outlook
3-21
•
In When Getting Full Copy, choose whether you want to download file
attachments and meeting requests when you get full copies of messages. This
setting applies whether you have chosen to download full copies of messages
by default, or if you selectively download full copies of messages by opening
the message and selecting the Get Full Copy button. In addition, if you want
to receive meeting requests, your Exchange Server administrator must enable
support for Rich Text Format for your account. Ask your administrator if this
feature is enabled for you.
Downloading messages
3
To send and receive e-mail, select the Services menu and make sure that the service
you want to use is selected (the selected service has a bullet next to it.) Then, select
the Connect button. When you connect to the mail server, the messages on your
PenCentra 130 and mail server are synchronized: new messages are downloaded to
the PenCentra 130 Inbox folder, messages in the Outbox folder are sent, and
messages that have been deleted on the server are removed from the Inbox. These
folders are stored under the service you created when setting up Inbox. Double-tap
or double-click a message in the message list to open it. If you read a message and
decide that you need the full copy, select the Get Full Copy button.
Disconnecting from the server
3
To disconnect Inbox from your mail server, select the Connect button again. You also
need to disconnect your dial-up connection by double-tapping or double-clicking the
icon in the status bar and selecting Disconnect.
Managing messages and folders
3
By default, messages are displayed in one of four folders in the service you created:
Inbox, Deleted (local), Outbox, and Sent. The Deleted (local) folder contains messages
that have been deleted on the PenCentra 130. If you are using IMAP4, you may see a
Deleted Items folder. This folder is for deleted messages on the server. The behavior
of the Deleted and Sent folders depends on the Inbox options you have chosen.
If you want to organize messages into additional folders, select File, Folder, and then
New Folder. Then, drag messages into the folder you created. The behavior of the
folders you create depends on whether you are using POP3 or IMAP4.
3-22
Using Microsoft CE Applications
Show Attachments Button
Select the Get Full Copy button to download
the rest of the message the next time you connect.
Double-tap or double-click an attachment to mark it
for downloading the next time you connect. If it has
already been downloaded, double-tap or doubleclick it to open it.
Figure 3-14
Downloading E-mail Messages
If you are using POP3, when you drag messages to a folder you created, the link is
broken between the messages and their copies on the mail server. The next time you
connect, the mail server will see that the messages are missing from the PenCentra
130 Inbox and delete them from the server. This prevents you from having duplicate
copies of a message, but it also means that you will no longer have access to the
messages you move to the folders you create from anywhere except your PenCentra
130.
If you are using IMAP4, the folders you create and the messages you move are
mirrored on the server. For example, if you move two messages from the Inbox
folder to a folder called Family, the server will create a copy of the Family folder and
copy the messages into that folder. Therefore, messages are available to you anytime
you connect to your mail server, whether it is from your PenCentra 130, laptop
Microsoft Pocket Outlook
3-23
computer, or desktop computer. This synchronization of folders occurs when you
create a new folder, move messages into a folder, exit the Inbox program, or select
Synchronize Folders on the Services menu. If you want to view the messages in a
folder while disconnected from your mail server, select the folder and then Offline
Folder on the Services menu.
ActiveSync: Synchronizing E-mail
3
Another way to access your e-mail is by synchronizing your PenCentra 130 and
desktop computer. Using Windows CE Services on your desktop computer, you can
send and receive e-mail messages by exchanging information between Inbox on your
PenCentra 130 and Inbox in either Outlook or Exchange on your desktop computer.
When you synchronize, any changes made on either computer are transferred to the
other. If you have received new messages in Inbox on your desktop computer, the
messages are copied to your PenCentra 130. If you delete a message on the
PenCentra 130, it is deleted from the desktop the next time you synchronize. If you
compose and send new e-mail messages on your PenCentra 130, the messages are
moved to the desktop computer and sent the next time you synchronize. In addition,
changes you’ve made to Calendar, Contacts, and Tasks are updated.
If you are receiving e-mail by synchronizing with your desktop computer, the
PenCentra 130 Inbox is set up by default. However, because e-mail messages are not
synchronized by default, you will need to set up Windows CE Services on your
desktop computer to include e-mail messages when synchronizing. To do so, select
your PenCentra 130 icon in the Mobile Devices folder on the desktop and then click
ActiveSync Options on the Tools menu. Click the Options button to set options such
as how much of a message to download and whether you want attachments
included. You will not be able to change these settings from your PenCentra 130. For
specific instructions on setting up and using synchronization, see “Chapter 7:
Microsoft Windows CE Services.”
Downloading messages
3
To send and receive e-mail, connect to your desktop computer and initiate
synchronization. The way you initiate synchronization depends on how you are
connected to your desktop computer and the settings you have chosen in Windows
CE Services. For more information, see “Chapter 7: Microsoft Windows CE Services.”
When you synchronize, the first 50 lines of new messages in Inbox on the desktop
computer are copied to the Inbox folder on your PenCentra 130, and messages in the
Outbox folder are sent. These folders are stored under the ActiveSync service in
Inbox. Double-tap or double-click a message in the message list to open it.
3-24
Using Microsoft CE Applications
Managing messages and folders
3
Messages are stored in one of four folders in the ActiveSync service: Inbox, Deleted
(local), Outbox, and Sent. The behavior of the Deleted and Sent folders depends on
the Inbox options you have chosen.
If you want to store messages in a folder other than Inbox, select File, Folder, and
then New Folder. Create the folder and then drag messages into it. Doing so breaks
the link between these messages and their copies on the desktop computer. When
you synchronize next, the messages in the folder you created will not be
synchronized. In addition, the desktop computer will see that the messages are
missing from the PenCentra 130 Inbox folder and delete them from the Inbox folder
on the desktop so that both Inbox folders match. This prevents you from getting
duplicate copies of a message, but it also means that you will no longer have access
to the messages you move out of Inbox except from your PenCentra 130.
Sending a message

To send a message:
3
1.
Select Compose and then New Message.
2.
Select the To field and enter the address of one or more recipients, or select
Address Book to select addresses from the Contacts list or an address service.

If you want to use your PenCentra 130 to connect to your desktop computer, a
network, or the Internet while away from your office, you must create a dial-up
connection. This is called remote networking. You have the following remote
networking options:
• Connect to your Internet service provider (ISP). Once connected, you can send
and receive e-mail messages and view Web pages. If this is the method you want
to use, see “Connecting to an ISP.”
• Connect to the network at your company or organization. Once connected, you
can send and receive e-mail messages, view intranet Web pages, and access files
on the network. If this is the method you want to use, see “Connecting to Your

Microsoft Windows CE Services
3
Microsoft Windows CE Services with ActiveSync enables you to synchronize the
information on your desktop computer with the information on your PenCentra 130.
Microsoft Windows CE Services
3-31
Synchronization is the process of comparing the data on your PenCentra 130 with
your desktop computer and updating both computers with the most recent
information. For example:
• Keep Pocket Outlook data up-to-date by synchronizing your PenCentra 130 with
your choice of Microsoft Outlook (Inbox synchronization with Outlook Express is
not currently supported), Microsoft Schedule+, or Microsoft Exchange on your
desktop computer.
• Synchronize Word and Excel documents, Access and other ODBC databases and
tables, and InkWriter documents between your PenCentra 130 and desktop
computer. Your files are automatically converted to the correct format.
• With Windows CE Services, you can also:
• Back up and restore your PenCentra 130 data.
• Add and remove programs on your PenCentra 130.
• Copy (rather than synchronize) files between your PenCentra 130 and your
desktop computer.
Installing Windows CE Services and Setting up a Partnership
1.
If you want to upgrade to Microsoft Outlook 98, install it first.
2.
Use a standard serial cable to connect your PenCentra 130 to your desktop
computer.
3.
Insert the Desktop Software for Microsoft Windows CE CD-ROM into your
CD-ROM drive.
4.
The Windows CE Services Setup Wizard should start automatically. If it doesn’t,
click the Start button, then select Run. In the Open box, type d:\setup, where d
is your CD-ROM drive. Click the OK button.
5.
Follow the directions on your screen.
Once installation is complete, a wizard will instruct you to connect your PenCentra
130 and desktop computer and guide you through setting up a partnership and
performing your first synchronization. Some items, such as messages, are not
synchronized by default. To change the type of items that get synchronized after
you’ve completed the wizard, select your device icon in the Mobile Devices folder
and then click ActiveSync Options on the Tools menu.
3-32
3
Using Microsoft CE Applications
If you are synchronizing with a computer running Windows 95/98, you can also use
an infrared connection to synchronize. For more information, see Windows CE
Services Help.
Note:
Regularly back up your PenCentra 130 data on your desktop computer using
Windows CE Services in case information on your PenCentra 130 is ever
corrupted or lost. Connect your PenCentra 130 and then click Backup/Restore on
the Tools menu in the Mobile Devices folder on your desktop computer. Your first
back up may take some time, depending on how much information you have on
your PenCentra 130. Subsequent backups will be faster if you select Incremental.
Synchronizing Files and File Conversion
3
One way to move documents to your PenCentra 130 is to simply connect your device
and desktop computer, open your device icon in the Mobile Devices folder, and drag
the files. Copies of the files will be placed on your PenCentra 130, and files will be
automatically converted to a format that the PenCentra 130 can read. However, if
you have documents that you update frequently on both your PenCentra 130 and
desktop computer, you may want to synchronize the copy on your desktop computer
with the one on your PenCentra 130 so that you always have an up-to-date copy on
both computers. To do so, store the files you want to synchronize in the
Synchronized Files folder on the PenCentra 130 and desktop computer. During
synchronization, files are updated in both locations.
Note:
On the PenCentra 130, the Synchronized Files folder is in the My Documents
folder. On the desktop computer, the Synchronized Files folder is called “device
Synchronized Files”, where “device” is the name of your PenCentra 130. If you are
using Windows 95/98, the folder is located in the My Documents folder (c:\My
Documents\device Synchronized Files). If you are using Windows NT, the folder
is located in the Personal folder (c:\Winnt\Profiles\your
username\Personal\device Synchronized Files).
When you transfer a file from your desktop computer to your PenCentra 130, the file
is converted to a format that the PenCentra 130 can read. During file conversion,
some of the file’s attributes may be changed or removed, and the file extension is
changed. For example, when you transfer a Microsoft Word file to your PenCentra
130, some of the file’s formatting may be removed or changed, and the file extension
is changed to.pwd (Pocket Word). When this file is transferred back to the desktop
computer, the file extension is converted back to .doc, but any changed or removed
formatting will still be lost. Therefore, if you are using the Synchronized Files folder
to transfer files and you want to preserve all formatting in the original document,
keep a copy of the original file in another folder. See Windows CE Services Help for
specific information on how file attributes are affected during conversion.

Chapter 4
Using the PenCentra 130 Productivity Package
This chapter contains information about the additional applications on your
PenCentra 130 -- collectively known as the Productivity Package. The Productivity
Package consists of applications that allow you to take notes, send faxes, perform
handwriting recognition, use an on-screen keyboard, search for files, and check your
spelling, along with several other system refinements. The Windows CE-based
programs that are loaded on your PenCentra 130 are discussed in Chapter 3.
CIC QuickNotes
4
CIC QuickNotes allows you to take notes on your PenCentra 130, while
automatically compressing the file and timestamping each note. Using QuickNotes
also allows you to search by text or stamp; you can add your own text or stamps for a
variety of data classifications.
Using QuickNotes

Working with Books
4
The pages of notes that you take are kept in books. There can be up to four books on
your PenCentra 130. To select the book you are working in go to the Tools menu and
select Options. From Options you can also delete a book, this will erase its contents,
or you can rename the book from the default name by just highlighting the name and
typing a new one.
Setting the Basic Options.
4
When working in QuickNotes there are some basic options that you can configure to
customize the look of your note taking interface.
Smoothing is a technique wherein the program will process the ink input so as to
make it appear smoother. This can be toggled on and off in the Options menu.
Having information Stamps displayed is a handy way to visually assess the contents
of a note page with a glance. Stamps can be turned on and off in the options menu.
At the bottom of every note page is the Status line telling you the time and date the
note was created, and which book it is in. The status line can be turned on or off in
the Options menu.
Ink Snap speed is the time period for which QuickNotes waits after you finish
writing and pick up your stylus. Once this time period is up QuickNotes will resize
the ink and put it in the correct position. Redraw Timing can also be changed here.
Grid lines will lay a square grid of lines on the screen as a reference when inking.
This can be very helpful when writing to keep ink objects uniform and aligned.
Text and Background Color can be set in the Options menu. You can choose one of
the predefined colors or create a custom color.
Putting Contact Information into Notes

Ink color can also be set from the Color Toolbar button.
4.
You can insert three different shapes: line, rectangle, and circle. These shapes
are completely scalable giving you the exact shape you desire. To access the
shapes dialog go to the Pen menu and select Draw.
Erasing Ink
4
Ink is easily removed from the note page by using the eraser. Select the eraser button
from the Toolbar. If you need to erase a larger area or be very precise with the ink
you are erasing, the eraser size can be altered in the Pen menu. The eraser will only
erase standard ink, it will not erase Ink Snap objects.
You can also use the Remove Last Stroke command from the Pen menu. This
command can be used multiple times to remove all strokes in reverse sequence.
Recording a Voice Note
4
QuickNotes will also allow you to record a Voice Note to go with a note page. To
record a voice note, go to the Tools menu and select Voice Note. Press the circle
button to begin recording, you will hear a tone signaling that recording has begun.

Using Find
4
You can use the Find command to search for text or stamps in your notes for quicker
access. Select Find from the Tools menu or use the Find button on the Toolbar and
either select the stamp to search for or enter the text you wish to find. Find searches
for text entered in InkSnap mode with the keyboard.
Using Ink Snap
4
QuickNotes has a powerful and innovative feature called Ink Snap. Ink Snap allows
you to write anywhere on the display and have the ink scaled down to a more usable
size and placed in uniform rows greatly saving display space.
To enable Ink Snap press the Ink Snap button on the Toolbar or select it from the
Tools menu. When Ink Snap has been enabled the Ink Snap toolbar will be displayed
at the top of the screen.
Ink Snap objects can be manipulated like any other QuickNotes object by using the
cut, copy, and paste controls. You can also make an object bold or underline it by
selecting it with your stylus and selecting the command from the InkSnap menu.
To select an InkSnap object place the pen tip on the object and hold until the object is
highlighted. The object can be dragged and dropped by lifting the pen then touching
and holding on the selected object while dragging to the new desired location.
Ink Snap speed can also be adjusted from the Options dialog in the File menu.
Editing and Manipulating Objects.
4
Ink objects can be manipulated in a number of different ways to facilitate their
organization and help make the content more readable.
To select ink, select Edit from the Tools menu or press the Select button on the
Toolbar, this puts you in select mode (note that the toolbar and menu changes in this
mode). Drag a selection box around the desired ink using your stylus. Once the ink is
selected it can be cut, copied or pasted on any page in any book or even in another
application.
A selected object can also be moved by dragging the selection box with your stylus. It
can also be scaled in the same manner by dragging the scaling box in the lower right
hand corner of the selection box.
You can alter the thickness of the ink object by first selecting it then from the Edit
menu select the Change Thickness item. You can also copy an object to bitmap for

QuickNotes gives devices with modems and bFAX software the ability to fax a note
directly from the application. To fax a page first make that page the current page and
from the file menu select send fax. Your fax software will then take over and
complete the task.
Sending an Email with QuickNotes
4
If you should desire to send your note page as an e-mail QuickNotes allows this by
simply going to the file menu and selecting send e-mail. If there are multiple e-mail
protocols installed on the device a dialog box will be displayed asking you to select
the e-mail system you wish to use. The page that is selected will be e-mailed when
the PenCentra 130 is next docked to a system with e-mail capabilities.
Browsing your Notes

Jot is a fast and easy to use handwriting recognition system for your PenCentra 130.
It is designed for maximum speed and accuracy while using a minimal amount of
memory. Jot has a patented user interface that allows convenient and natural
handwritten input on small devices.
You get fast, accurate recognition with Jot’s natural character set and unique user
interface.
You can write anywhere on the screen. Jot recognizes characters - uppercase letters,
lowercase letters, numbers, gestures and macros - according to where you write
them. The Mode Mark - pointers that appear on the side of your PenCentra 130's
display and form an imaginary line across the screen - act as your reference.
• Letters written below the Mode Mark are recognized as lower case.
• Letters that extend from the lower half of the screen to the upper half (across the
imaginary line) are recognized as upper case.
• Write numbers above the Mode Mark.
• Write most characters with a single stroke.
• Mode Mark is adjustable.
You can enter the same character shape to write an upper and a lower case letter,
depending on where you write on the screen.

CIC Handwriter
4
CIC Handwriter is a full context-sensitive word recognizer. Handwriter allows you
to write whole words or sentences before recognition. The recognizer includes almost
all types of character shapes.
Using the Online Help
4
Open the online help by tapping the ? button in Recognizer Properties (Recognizer
Properties can be opened from the Control Panel window or by double-tapping the
pen icon in the System Tray).
Getting to Know Handwriter
4
To use the pen for pointing instead of writing, tap the pen icon in the System Tray.
The pen icon changes depending on whether writing or mouse mode is active. When
the pen is active only for pointing, the pen icon changes to an arrow.
4
Clicking
You can “click” with the pen, just as you would with a mouse.
• Tapping the tip of the pen on the tablet is the same as clicking the left mouse
button.
• Double-tapping the pen’s tip is the same as double-clicking the left mouse button.
4
Writing
Before writing with the pen, first verify that the Pen icon on the Taskbar has been
selected. Then follow these steps:
4-8
Using the PenCentra 130 Productivity Package
1. Place the insertion point where you want the new text to appear.
2.
With the pen’s tip touching the surface, move the pen across the screen of the
device. What you write appears on-screen as ink, and after a moment the ink
changes to printed text.
4
Erasing
You can erase text by selecting the text, then tapping the Delete or Backspace key.
You can also use the erase gesture on the selected text.
4
Selecting
Select any amount of text by dragging the pen over it, with the pen tip touching the
tablet. Note that if the pen is active only for pointing (the pen icon in the System Tray
is an arrow), you can directly move the pen over the text area to select it. However, if
the pen is active for writing (a pen icon is present in the System Tray), you must first
hold down the pen for a moment before dragging it (holding down the pen changes
it to selecting mode from within writing mode).
Getting to Know the Recognizer
4
Following these suggestions helps Handwriter recognize the characters you write.
Handwriter is a discrete character recognizer, which means it easily accepts
unconnected letters.
However, since people often connect adjacent letters, even when they are printing,
Handwriter has built-in recognition for many commonly connected pairs.
Writing Case-identical Letters
4
Writing with Handwriter is the same as writing on a blank sheet of paper: there are
no lines to provide a frame of reference for the recognizer. For example:
• Without any other information, the recognizer cannot determine whether a “c” is
an upper- or lowercase letter.
• The only way to identify the case is to write the letter in context. For many letters,
size is the only difference between upper- and lowercase (Cc, Mm, Oo, Pp, Ss, Uu,
Vv, Ww, Xx, Yy, Zz). If you write one of these case-identical letters by itself,
Handwriter recognizes it as lowercase. For accuracy, write case-identical letters
next to at least one other letter, and make capital letters larger.
CIC Handwriter
4-9
Writing Punctuation Marks
4
When you write a character, you are aware — and can see on-screen — exactly what
you intended to write. Handwriter however, might interpret what you wrote
differently. This is especially likely with punctuation marks, if you write them alone.
For example, a comma by itself could look like a right parenthesis. Ensure correct
recognition of punctuation marks by writing them in the context of other characters.
Spacing Between Characters and Words
4
By default, Handwriter automatically inserts a space between words as they are
recognized.
To manually insert a space after words have been recognized, position the cursor
where you want the space, then write the space gesture (-).
Stop Handwriter from automatically inserting a space by turning off this feature in
the Advanced section in Recognizer Properties dialog box.
Tips for Using the Recognizer
4
Use the following tips to help ensure that Handwriter recognizes all of your
characters.
Be distinct: Some characters resemble one another. For example, a “5” can look like
an “S”, a “U” can look like a “V”, etc. When you write characters, pay special
attention to the order and direction of your strokes; this is one of the ways
Handwriter recognizes what you write.
Separate your characters: Handwriter recognizes upper- and lowercase printed
characters. Except for the connected pairs, write each character separately.
Distinguish uppercase from lowercase: When you write case-identical letters, make
uppercase letters twice as big as lowercase letters. Handwriter uses a dictionary that
favors lowercase letters. If you are using a string of characters with an unusual mix of
upper- and lowercase letters, you can improve recognition by turning off the spell
checker. For instructions, see “Customizing Recognition”.
When writing an uppercase “K”, draw the height of the right stroke even with or
higher than the left stroke.
4-10
Using the PenCentra 130 Productivity Package
Distinguish Letters from Numbers
4
Letters and numbers may look alike. For example, when writing the number “1055”,
differentiate your “5” from an “S” by either making the top corners of the “5”
sharper, or by writing a two-stroke “5”. A two-stroke “5” may look like an “S” on
paper, but Handwriter never confuses them because an “S” is written with only one
stroke:
Distinguish a “one” from a lowercase letter “l” by placing a tail on the number.
Distinguish “+” from “t” by making the crossbar considerably longer than the
vertical stroke.
Other Tips
4
• Make sure that loops are fully closed. An open “g” might be recognized as a “y”,
and an open “a” might be recognized as a “u”.
• Handwriter recognizes normal retraces, such as you might make when writing a
“B” with a single stroke. However excessively retraced characters might not be
recognized.
Customizing Handwriter Settings
4
By changing its settings, you can customize Handwriter’s appearance and operation.
To do this, select Recognizer Properties from the Control Panel icon. Recognizer
Properties dialog box appears with the General tab displayed. Alternately, you can
access Recognizer Properties by double-tapping the pen icon in the System Tray.
Choosing the Recognizer
4
In the General tab you have the option of selecting which recognizer to use.
You can select only the Recognizers that have been installed. If only Handwriter is
installed you can only select Full Character Set. If Jot is installed then you will also
have the choice of selecting either Natural Character Set or the Simplified Uppercase
Character Set. For Jot, see section 2.
Handwriter is a full context sensitive word recognizer. Jot is a character recognizer.
Jot begins recognition after each character is written. Handwriter will allow you to
write whole words or sentences before recognition.

Customizing Ink Settings
4
In the Appearance tab you can control ink width and color:
• To customize the width of the ink stroke, select a size, then tap OK.
• To customize the color of the ink, select Change Color, then select a color box, then
tap OK.
Select another tab, or tap OK to return to your document.
Timeout
4
From the Timeout tab there are two kinds of timeout you can control: Recognition
Timeout and Selection Timeout.
Recognition Timeout
4
Sometimes, particularly as a new user, when you write a multistroke character (a
character made up of more than one stroke, such as an “A”), Handwriter might
interpret each stroke as a separate character:
This occurs when the recognition timeout is set faster than you write. Handwriter
interpreted what you wrote before you finished all the strokes.
As you gain more experience with Handwriter, you can reset this feature to improve
the response time.
Selection Timeout
4
When you pen down Handwriter will try to take the ink and recognize it. If you need
to select something or drag and drop an item you must hold the pen down a certain
amount of time without moving so Handwriter knows you do not want recognition.
Move this slider until you select a time you feel comfortable with.
Customizing Recognition
Select the Advanced tab to customize character recognition and start the Macro
Editor and Trainer:
• To turn the spell checker on or off, select the box next to Enable Recognition
Dictionary.
• The spell checker uses a dictionary that favors the recognition of real words. For
example, if you write “fovr”, Handwriter recognizes it as “four”.
4-12
Using the PenCentra 130 Productivity Package
4
• To control spacing between words, tap the box next to Automatically insert a
Space after a pause (complete words only).
Note:
This feature only works with Spell Checking. Be sure to check the Enable
Recognition Dictionary box. However, if you pause after writing fewer than three
characters (such as “an...”), you will have to insert a space manually after the last
character.
Select another tab, or tap OK to return to your document.

Chapter 5
Care and Maintenance of the PenCentra 130
This chapter provides pointers on how to care for and maintain your PenCentra 130
pen tablet.
Protecting the Display Screen
5
The PenCentra 130 pen tablet is designed to provide you with years of service. Using
a screen protector will help ensure that the screen remains as clear as possible. When
installed, the screen protector becomes a durable, replaceable, antiglare writing
surface that protects the display screen from abrasion.
To obtain additional screen protectors use Fujitsu part number FMWSP6 (12-pack)
when ordering. Additional information about installation is included with the screen
protectors.
Caution
During normal use of the pen tablet, small particles from the
environment can become embedded in the pen tip and
scratch the screen. To prevent scratching the screen, ensure
that a screen protector is installed before using your pen
tablet. The warranty does not cover a screen that is scratched
as a result of not using a screen protector.
Installing a Screen Protector
5
To install a new screen protector on your pen tablet:
1. If a screen protector is already installed on the display screen, remove it before
installing the new screen protector. The screen protector is held onto the display
screen surface by a thin strip of adhesive around the edges. A notch in one corner
of the screen protector allows you to slide your fingernail under the screen
protector for easy removal.
2. Clean the adhesive residue from the screen surface by gently wiping the residue
using a soft cotton cloth dampened with denatured alcohol. Ensure that all film
has been removed from the screen before applying a new screen protector.
Protecting the Display Screen
5-1
Cautions
• Cleaning the screen surface with denatured alcohol may
result in streaking. If streaking occurs, buff the screen
surface lightly with a soft, dry cloth.
• The PenCentra 130 pen tablet is not waterproof. Do not
pour liquids on the system or wash it with a soaked cloth.
3. Remove the protective coating from the adhesive side of the new screen protector
first.
4. Apply the screen protector to the display screen surface. When doing so, orient
the screen protector with the adhesive side of the screen protector facing the
display screen and the notched corner of the screen protector toward the lower
left corner of the display screen.
5. Remove the protective plastic cover from the face of the screen protector.
6. Apply pressure to the screen protector with your finger using a continuous
wiping motion along the edges. The adhesive sets completely within 48 hours. To
ensure a good seal between the screen protector and the display, do not lift the
screen protector from the display once it has been applied.
7. Clean any residue left behind by the protective coating from the exposed surface
of the screen protector by wiping gently with a soft cotton cloth dampened with
denatured alcohol. Wipe the screen protector with a soft dry cloth to remove any
low-tack adhesive; this will help to prevent the pen tip from squeaking.
The screen protector is now installed.
Storing the PenCentra 130
5
Store the PenCentra 130 pen tablet in Suspended state with a fully charged battery
pack installed. The PenCentra 130 battery pack always provides power to some
system components, even when the system is in the Suspended state. If you plan to
store the system with the battery pack removed, be sure to save any active data prior
to storing; failure to do so could result in lost data.

Care and Maintenance of the PenCentra 130
Protecting the PenCentra 130 Pen Tablet in Harsh Environments 5
The PenCentra 130 pen tablet is designed for use in environments where there is no
direct exposure to rain, mist, sprays, dirt, or other abrasive particles. The optional
PenCentra 130 harsh environment case (FMWCC36) and the PenCentra 130 screen
protector (FMWSP6) provide some protection in these environments, as well as from
physical damage due to shock or vibration.
Note that the harsh environment case does not render the pen tablet waterproof,
dustproof, or submersible.
The pen tablet is easily used while installed in the harsh environment case. For
additional information on the PenCentra 130 harsh environment case as well as
additional carrying cases and holsters, contact your reseller.
Avoiding Overheating
5
Excessive heat can damage internal components of the pen tablet over a period of
time. To avoid overheating your PenCentra 130, do not charge the pen tablet while it
is in the harsh environment case unless the system is either suspended or off.
Cleaning the Display Screen
5
To clean the pen tablet display screen, wipe the screen surface gently using a soft
cotton cloth slightly dampened with water or denatured alcohol. Using denatured
alcohol may result in streaking. If this occurs, gently buff the surface with a soft, dry
cloth.
Caution
The PenCentra 130 pen tablet is not waterproof. Do not pour
liquids on the pen tablet or wash the pen tablet with a heavily
soaked cloth.

Troubleshooting the PenCentra 130
Solutions to some common problems are described in the following sections. If you
are experiencing a problem with your PenCentra 130 pen tablet that you cannot solve
by taking the actions described, contact your local help desk or your reseller for
further assistance. If you need troubleshooting information for Windows CE
Services, click Windows CE Services Help Topics on the Help menu in the Mobile
Devices folder.
System Will Not Resume Operation
6
If the system will not resume operation after system operation has been suspended,
the battery pack may either be discharged to a critically low level or there is the
much less likely possibility that the battery pack is defective. To correct this problem,
either connect an external power supply (such as the AC adapter), or install a
charged battery pack in the pen tablet.
Display Screen Is Blank or Difficult to Read
6
If the display screen on your PenCentra 130 pen tablet appears blank or is
unreadable, check the following:
• The backlight time-out may have expired. Tap on the display screen to reactivate
the display. Note that this is a normal, power-saving feature.
• The system brightness may be set too low, causing the screen to appear too dark.
Use the backlight brightness hotpad to adjust the screen brightness.
• Color Reflective systems only: The display contrast settings may be set to extreme
high or low level causing the screen to appear blank. Try adjusting the contrast
setting using the hotpads. Note that the ambient temperature will affect the
display contrast. You may need to adjust the contrast periodically to compensate
for changes in temperature.
• If the device doesn’t respond when you briefly press the suspend/resume button,
try holding the button down for a full second.
• Make sure your battery cover is locked.
6-1
Infrared Data Transfer Is Not Working
6
If you are experiencing problems transferring data between Windows CE-based
devices, note the following:
• Transfer only one file, or no more than 25 contact cards at a time. For more
information on contact cards, reference the section of Chapter 3 entitled
“Contacts: Tracking Friends and Colleagues”.
• Can the IrDA port on the pen tablet “see” the IrDA port on the other device? A
direct line-of-sight path must exist between the IrDA port on the pen tablet and
the IrDA port on the other device.
• The distance between the two devices must be less than 3 feet (1 meter), but more
than two inches.
• The viewing angle from the IrDA port on the pen tablet must not be more than 15
degrees from a center line between the IrDA port on the pen tablet and the IrDA
port on the other device.
• Adjust the room lighting. Some types of light interfere with infrared
communication (including direct sunlight). Try moving to a different location or
turning off some lights.
Pen Tablet Is Not Responding to the Pen
6
If your pen tablet is not responding to the pen, check the following:
Note:
A quick way to tell if the pen is responding is to try to adjust the volume hotpad.
This will help determine if the system is not responding or if the application is
locked up.
• Ensure that the pen tip is clean. Replace the pen if it is damaged.
• If available, connect a USB-style mouse to the system to see if it responds to click
commands. If the system doesn’t respond to the mouse, the application or system
may have crashed, and it may be necessary to reset the system.
Pen Tablet is Not Responding to the Keyboard
6
If the pen tablet is not responding to the keyboard, make sure that you suspend and
then resume the system before attempting to use the keyboard. It must be suspended
and resumed before the keyboard will be recognized.
6-2
Troubleshooting the PenCentra 130
Pen Not Calibrated
6
If the pen appears to be selecting an area of the screen other than the location at
which you tap, you should calibrate the pen. See “Calibrating the Pen” in Chapter 2
for details.
Audio Volume Too Low
6
If the audio volume on your pen tablet speaker or external headphones is too low,
check the following:
• Ensure that the volume level set with the Volume hotpads is set to an audible
level. There are four different levels at which the Volume hotpad can be set. Tap it
a few times to see if there is an increase in volume.
• Ensure that the volume level in the Control Panel/Volume and Sounds properties
window are set to the maximum levels.
Remote connection problems
6
This section covers situations you may encounter when trying to connect your
PenCentra to other sources of information. For problems with communicating with
your desktop, see Windows CE Services Help.
Can’t dial out with the device modem
6
• If using a PC Card modem, verify that the modem is firmly seated and connected
to your PenCentra and the telephone jack.
• Make sure the telephone line is analog. (Analog telephone lines transmit data in
analog instead of digital form. Your home telephone line is most likely analog,
while office telephone lines are often digital.)
• Make sure you’ve correctly set dialing properties for this connection.
• Make sure the modem is waiting for a dial tone. Select Start, Programs,
Communication, and then Remote Networking. Tap or click your connection
once to select it, and then select Properties on the File menu. In the Dial-Up
Connection dialog box, select the Configure button and then select the Call
Options tab. Select Wait for dial tone before dialing.
• For international calls, allow more time for the call to go through. On the Call
Options tab described in the previous bullet, clear the Cancel the call if not
connected within option or increase the number of seconds allowed.

combination of devices such that the total of the load numbers of all devices does not
exceed 100.
Caution
For safety, users should ensure that the electrical ground of the
power utility, the telephone lines, and the metallic water pipes are
connected together. Users should not attempt to make such
connections themselves but should contact the appropriate electric
inspection authority or electrician. This may be particularly
important in rural areas.
Avis Aux Utilisateurs Du Réseau Téléphonique Canadien
6
L’étiquette canadienne Industrie Canada identifie l’équipement certifié. Cette
certification signifie que l’équipement satisfait certaines normes de protection,
d’exploitation et de sécurité des réseaux de télécommunications. Le département ne
garantit pas le fonctionnement de l’équipement à la satisfaction de l’utilisateur.
Le PenCentra 130 possede un modem interne conforme aux normes de certification
d’Industrie Canada pour protéger les réseaux de télécommunications et satisfaire aux
normes de sécurité. Avant de connecter cet équipement à une ligne téléphonique,
l’utilisateur doit vérifier s’il est permis de connecter cet équipement aux installations
de télécommunications locales. L’utilisateur est averti que même la conformité aux
normes de certification ne peut dans certains cas empêcher la dégradation du service.
C-4
Appendix
Les réparations de l’équipement de télécommunications doivent être effectuées par
un service de maintenance agréé au Canada. Toute réparation ou modification, qui
n’est pas expressement approuvée par Fujitsu Personal Systems, Inc., ou toute
défaillance de l’équipement peut entrainer la compagnie de télécommunications à
exiger que l’utlilisateur déconnecte l‘équipement de la ligne téléphonique.
Le code d’arrangement de connexion de cet équipement est CA11A.
Le numéro de charge est 0.2.
Le numéro de charge assigné à chaque terminal téléphonique indique le pourcentage
de la charge totale pouvant être connecté à une boucle ou à un circuit téléphonique,
utilisé par ce périphérique afin de prévenir toute surcharge. La terminaison d’une
boucle peut être constituée de n’importe quelle combinaison de périphériques de
sorte que le total de numéros de charge de tous les périphériques n’excède pas 100.
Avertissement
Pour assurer la sécurité, les utilisateurs doivent vérifier que la
prise de terre du service d’électricité, les lignes
téléphoniques et les conduites d’eau métalliques sont
connectées ensemble. Les utilisateurs NE doivent PAS tenter
d’établir ces connexions eux-mêmes, mais doivent contacter
les services d’inspection d’installations électriques
appropriés ou un électricien. Ceci peut être particulièrement
important en régions rurales.
