Releasing the Power of Your Windows Mobile® Keyboard
Overview
KeyPro – Windows Mobile® Edition is a compatible Bluetooth® keyboard management
utility built on a Bluetooth® keyboard driver core. This design enables KeyPro to extend
the basic Bluetooth® keyboard driver functionality by adding a feature rich environment
allowing the user to fully control just about every aspect of their Windows Mobile® pda
or smart phone right from their Bluetooth® keyboard.
In order to fully utilize KeyPro’s capabilities, one need to understand the many features
and functionality of KeyPro and how they are used and what they are intended to be
used for. Several of KeyPro’s features can affect your ability to be productive when
using applications that require a high information input from keyboard such as message,
text editors, memo, etc.
To help with identifying the important features of KeyPro, the following conventions are
used throughout this manual that we think will help you better understand how to get
the most from the KeyPro keyboard management system.
Conventions
A number of different fonts, key words and characters are used to indicate different
types of information through out the manual. Here are some examples and what they
mean.
[Brackets]
are used to point out key steps, features, commands, etc.
Usage:
the key word “Usage” is especially important because it identifies what a
specific feature does and how it can be used.
Arrows are used to point focus to features on figures and images.
Note:
Notes are used through out the manual and are of high importance. Pay
special attention to these.
