The H/PC 2000 systems include two handwriting recognizers from Communication
Intelligence Corporation: Jot and Handwriter for HPC 2000. Jot offers single character
recognition, providing immediate user feedback. Handwriter provides full context
natural character recognition with complete macro and gesture support. The
following list describes some of the features of the program:
• Data input is more natural. No special symbols or characters to memorize. Jot
allows users to input text by using standard upper and lower case printed letters that
offer ready-to-go recognition of printed characters without requiring any training.
• Full-Screen Support. Jot enables users to input text on the full screen or in the
input panel area. Jot supports writing in place so that you can write one letter on
top of another and never run out of screen space.
12
Introducing the PenCentra 200 H/PC Pro
• Simple User-Interface. Jot uses mode marks to divide the input area into different
regions so where you write determines if the character will be read as upper case,
lower case, numeric or a symbol. Jot enables you to use the center area of the
screen to get capital letters.
• See Your Writing in Ink. Jot helps users improve their recognition accuracy by
enabling characters to be viewed in ink as they are written.
• International Character Support. Jot supports recognition of Roman-based
Western European languages and accent marks.
• Tutorial. Jot provides an extensive tutorial demonstrating how to write letters and
symbols.

Introducing the PenCentra 200 H/PC Pro
Chapter 2
Using the PenCentra 200
This chapter covers the fundamental concepts, basic system operation and use, and
system functions of your PenCentra 200. You should familiarize yourself with this
information before you attempt to operate the system.
Before Setting Up the PenCentra 200
2
Before you set up your PenCentra 200, 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 installation
instructions that accompany the screen protector.
• 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 200
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 200. 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.

Figure 2-1
Location of Suspend/Resume Button
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 200
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.
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.
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 200 pen tablet writes with the opposite hand
or at a different pen angle.
Using the Pen
17
• The system has been in use for some time and the pen has not been recalibrated.
• The system has not been used for a long time and all stored information is lost
due to loss of battery power.
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 200 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.
Replacing the Pen
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 200 to support Type I or Type II PC
Cards. Ensure that the card is PC Card 2.1-compliant and that the proper CE drivers
are available to support the card.
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 with an arrowhead 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.

Using the PenCentra 200
To install a new or recharged battery pack, slide it into the battery tray and firmly
push it in until the latch clicks into place.
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 (FPC 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.
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 200
2
Although the pen, on-screen keyboard, and handwriting recognition applications
allow you to enter any type of data into your PenCentra 200, there may be occasions
when you prefer to use a mouse or an optional PenCentra 200 keyboard.
Powering the PenCentra 200

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
200.
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 200. Choosing Only synchronize Inbox folder hierarchy
(IMAP4 only) will speed up the time it takes to download your messages.
Microsoft Pocket Outlook
45
•
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 200 and mail server are synchronized: new messages are downloaded to
the PenCentra 200 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 200. 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.
46
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
200 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
200.
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 200, laptop
Microsoft Pocket Outlook
47
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 Off-line
Folder on the Services menu.
ActiveSync: Synchronizing E-mail
3
Another way to access your e-mail is by synchronizing your PenCentra 200 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 200 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 200. If you delete a message on the
PenCentra 200, it is deleted from the desktop the next time you synchronize. If you
compose and send new e-mail messages on your PenCentra 200, 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 200 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 200 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 200. 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 200, 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.
48
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 200 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 200.
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

7.
Enter the access phone number and select Finish.
3
Once you have created the dial-up connection, you simply double-tap or
double-click the connection, enter your user name, password, and domain, and
select Connect any time you want to connect. Once connected, you can use Pocket
Internet Explorer to visit intranet Web pages and Inbox to send and receive
e-mail. Before you can use Inbox, you need to provide the information it needs to
communicate with the mail server. For specific instructions, see “Inbox: Sending
and Receiving E-mail Messages” earlier in this chapter.
To create a network (Ethernet) connection:
You do not need to create a new connection in Remote Networking on your
PenCentra 200 for a network connection. Instead, you must install and configure an
52
Using Microsoft CE Applications

Ethernet card. You must have an NE2000-compatible Ethernet card. The drivers for
the card already exist on your PenCentra 200.
1.
Insert the Ethernet card into your PenCentra 200 and connect it to your network
cable.
2.
You may see a message warning about battery power. If you have an A/C
Adapter, plug it into your PenCentra 200.
3.
Perform one of the following steps, depending upon whether the Settings
dialog box opens automatically.
• If the Settings dialog box is displayed automatically, enter the information
for your server. See your network administrator if you need assistance. You
should not have to change these settings.
• If the Settings dialog box is not displayed automatically, go to Start,

instructions, see “Inbox: Sending and Receiving E-mail Messages” in Chapter 5.
Connecting to Your Desktop to Synchronize Remotely
3
To synchronize remotely, the following conditions must be met:
• You must first establish a partnership between your PenCentra 200 and desktop
computer while at your desktop computer.
• The desktop computer must be turned on and you must be logged in. Schedule+,
Exchange, or Outlook must be running with your user profile.
• In the lower-right corner of the Mobile Devices window, the connection status
must show Waiting for mobile device to connect.
• In the ActiveSync Options dialog box in Windows CE Services, synchronization
must be enabled. (Or you can select Automatically synchronize if data is
out-of-date.)
Getting Connected Remotely
53
• If you are communicating through a modem connected to the desktop computer,
the modem must be turned on. Also, the Auto Connect should be set to At all
times in Windows CE Services. Otherwise, a Mobile Devices window must be
open.
• If you are communicating with the desktop computer through a dial-up or
network connection, you must be logged on to the network on the desktop
computer. Before you leave, select Enable a network connection in the Windows
CE Services Properties dialog box.
If your computer must be turned off while you are away from your office, you
cannot synchronize remotely. However, you can dial in directly to your network to
receive your e-mail. For more information, see “Connecting to Your Network.”
If the above conditions are met, you can synchronize with your desktop computer
while away from the office in one of three ways:
• Create a dial-up connection using a RAS account. Before you can create this
dial-up connection, your network administrator will need to set up a RAS account
for you. Once connected to the network, your PenCentra 200 will find your
desktop computer and initiate synchronization. If this is the method you want to
use, see “To create a dial-up connection to a network.” Once the connection has
been created and you are connected, select Start, Programs, Communications,
and then ActiveSync on your PenCentra 200. In the ActiveSync dialog box, select
the dial-up connection you created as the method to connect and the name of the
computer you want to connect to.

Getting Connected Remotely
55
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 200.
Synchronization is the process of comparing the data on your PenCentra 200 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 200 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 200 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 200 data.
• Add and remove programs on your PenCentra 200.
• Copy (rather than synchronize) files between your PenCentra 200 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 200 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
200 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
56
3
Using Microsoft CE Applications
you’ve completed the wizard, select your device icon in the Mobile Devices folder
and then click ActiveSync Options on the Tools menu.
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 200 data on your desktop computer using
Windows CE Services in case information on your PenCentra 200 is ever
corrupted or lost. Connect your PenCentra 200 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 200. Subsequent backups will be faster if you select Incremental.
Synchronizing Files and File Conversion
3
One way to move documents to your PenCentra 200 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 200, and files will be
automatically converted to a format that the PenCentra 200 can read. However, if
you have documents that you update frequently on both your PenCentra 200 and
desktop computer, you may want to synchronize the copy on your desktop computer
with the one on your PenCentra 200 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 200 and desktop computer. During
synchronization, files are updated in both locations.
Note:
On the PenCentra 200, 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 200. 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 200, the file
is converted to a format that the PenCentra 200 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
200, 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,
Microsoft Windows CE Services
57
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.
Note:
If you have password protection on an Excel or Word file on your PenCentra 200,
you must first turn off the password protection before the file is synchronized with
the desktop computer. To do so, open the file, select File, select Password, and
clear the Password field
Remote Synchronization
Note:
3
Be sure to log out of CE Services prior to removing the serial cable. If you do not
log out, CE Services will continue to look for a connection when the cable is not
installed.
You can synchronize with your desktop computer while away from the office by
connecting to your network or directly to your computer via a modem attached to
your computer. For more information, see “Connecting to Your Desktop Computer
to Synchronize Remotely” earlier in this chapter.

Chapter 4
Using the Handwriting Recognition Utilities
This chapter contains information about the handwriting utilities on your PenCentra
200.
• CalliGrapher® handwriting recognition utilities are included with PenCentra 200
pen tablets that have Windows CE 2.11 installed.
• Systems with Microsoft H/PC 2000 installed use Handwriter for HPC 2000 -including Jot -- as a handwriting recognition utility.
The Windows CE-based programs that are loaded on your PenCentra 200 are
discussed in Chapter 3.
What is CalliGrapher?
4
CalliGrapher version 5.3 from ParaGraph adds natural handwriting recognition
capability to your PenCentra 200 for all handwriting styles -- cursive, print or mixed.
CalliGrapher analyzes pen strokes written in any application window, converts the
pen strokes into text and sends the recognized text to a target application. Employing
advanced fuzzy logic and neural net techniques, CalliGrapher recognizes arbitrary
alphanumeric strings as well as words from its integrated dictionary.
CalliGrapher also offers a comprehensive spell checker for all Windows® CE 2.11
applications.
CalliGrapher for Windows CE gives you the freedom to enter information quickly
and efficiently into your PenCentra 200.

What is CalliGrapher?
59
Getting started
4
Do you see a pen image on the taskbar? It would look like one of these pictures:
The pen image indicates that CalliGrapher is already running. Note that switching
your system on and off does not close CalliGrapher. CalliGrapher will produce an
error message indicating that it cannot load a DLL if you didn’t reset the system
when you were asked to do so by the installation program.
Start CalliGrapher (if it is not already running). To do this, find the CalliGrapher icon
on your PenCentra 200 desktop. It looks like this:
Double-tap on it (or tap once and then press "Enter").
After CalliGrapher starts, you’ll see the pen and the marker images in the taskbar
tray (in the bottom right corner of the screen).
Press your pen tip on either of those images and keep it pressed for a while (until
you hear a "click") to activate the CalliGrapher menu.
Note:
60
In CalliGrapher, the operations done by tapping on something and by pressing the
pen and waiting for a "click" are often different.
Using the Handwriting Recognition Utilities
A check mark appears next to the "Pen" menu item. This confirms that now you can
write on the screen:
If you tap on "Pen", the ability to use the pen will be turned off, and your stylus will
operate as if CalliGrapher is not running.
When the pen is turned off, the pen image in the taskbar tray looks like this:
To turn the pen back on, just tap on the pen image.
The Two Icons Explained
4
By default, CalliGrapher displays only one icon on the taskbar - the pen icon. If you
ever select the drawing mode, the second one - the marker icon - will be added. You
can do it by selecting "ScreenDraw" in the CalliGrapher menu.
Any of those may be highlighted, or none at all, like this:
Pen highlighted
(Recognition mode)
Marker highlighted
(ScreenDraw mode)
No highlight
(CalliGrapher off)
In the Recognition mode, CalliGrapher translates your handwriting into text and
pastes in into the active window. This is the mode we’ll be discussing here.
Getting started
61
In the ScreenDraw mode, you can just draw sketches on top of the screen. This mode
will be explained later.
In any mode you still can use the pen for its regular tasks. For example,
double-tapping on the desktop icons or tapping on the dialog box buttons will work
as usual.
You can switch between modes either by tapping on the appropriate taskbar icon or
by selecting the corresponding menu item from the CalliGrapher menu.
Tapping on the icon of the currently selected mode turns CalliGrapher off. Tap on
any CalliGrapher taskbar icon to turn it back to the desired mode.
You can select "Options..." from menu to set what icons are shown on a taskbar (tap
on the "Icons" tab in the "Options" dialog box).
In all of the following examples we assume that the pen is turned on.
Now start an application such as Pocket Word. Your screen should look like this:
Now you are ready to use CalliGrapher’s recognition and spell-checking features.
62
Using the Handwriting Recognition Utilities
Basic writing and corrections
4
CalliGrapher recognizes whole words and phrases. Here is the whole phrase "The
quick brown fox" written while running Microsoft’s Pocket Word:
After a short pause, the writing is recognized. Suppose CalliGrapher produces the
following:
Basic writing and corrections
63
It should be "brown", not "frown". Use the correction gesture to change the text:
Note that the direction of the gesture is significant.
The gesture should be written from left to right, and the right part should be at least
twice as long as the left one, like this:
Now the Correction Window appears:
64
Using the Handwriting Recognition Utilities
Tap on the word "frown" in the Correction Window. The caret appears under the
letter you tapped on. It indicates the place where the changes will be made:
Tap on the caret (or double-tap on the word "frown"). The pop-up menu appears:
Basic writing and corrections
65
In the top portion of the menu, CalliGrapher gives suggestions for this word, and the
word "brown" is among them. When you tap on it "frown" is replaced with "brown"
in the Correction Window:
All you have to do now is to tap on the "OK" button in the upper right corner of the
Correction Window. The text in Pocket Word changes automatically:
66
Using the Handwriting Recognition Utilities
If the right word didn’t appear in the menu, simply write the desired letter above the
wrong one to correct it:
What is displayed in the Correction Window?
4
How does CalliGrapher know what do you want to correct when you make a
correction gesture?
First, if you made a correction gesture just after writing something, and didn’t select
any text after that, CalliGrapher assumes you want to correct your last written phrase
and displays it in the Correction Window.
If you have selected any text in your current application (i.e. Pocket Word), that text
would be displayed in the Correction Window.
Finally, if you make the correction gesture and don’t lift the pen tip until the
correction window is displayed, the whole text in your current application would be
selected and displayed in the Correction Window. This is just a shortcut for two
actions: selecting all text and then making the correction gesture.
Gestures and spell checking
4
Spell checking works for all text, whether or not it was originally entered with a pen.
Let’s take the phrase from our previous recognition example, "The quick brown fox"
and turn it into the complete sentence by adding "jumps over a lazy dog". Change the
Gestures and spell checking
67
CalliGrapher spell checker for the word "broun" (whereas the earlier correction
example used recognition alternatives). Note that the word "brown" is one of them.
Now select the correct word from the menu, and it replaces the wrong one in the
Correction Window:
Gestures and spell checking
69
Press the "OK" button.The text in Pocket Word is correct again:
To erase a word, first cross it out with a single horizontal line (from left to right):
70
Using the Handwriting Recognition Utilities
It will become selected:
Now just draw the erase gesture (horizontal line from right to left):
Here is the result:
Gestures and spell checking
71
To capitalize a letter with a single gesture, start at the base of the letter you want to
change and write a vertical line upwards:
The result:
Close the Correction Window without accepting the edits by tapping the button with
an "X" on it in the upper right of the window. It is to the right of the "OK" button.
Text Editing Using CalliGrapher
4
Up to this point, you have been editing through the correction window. You can also
edit text directly within your document.
You can quickly erase text using the Erase gesture, which is one single horizontal line
drawn from right to left. This gesture’s effect is similar to that of the Back Space key.
72
Using the Handwriting Recognition Utilities
If no text is selected in the window, the symbol or space immediately to the left of the
cursor will be erased and the cursor will reposition itself one space to the left. In the
following example several words are selected, and will be erased with the gesture.
The selected text has been erased:
Text Editing Using CalliGrapher
73
To insert a carriage return at the cursor position use the Carriage Return gesture,
which resembles a reversed upper case "L". Be sure to extend the length of the base
horizontal portion of the stroke to at least twice the down stroke portion.
Note that the cursor has moved to the line below the text:
Now use the Erase gesture (horizontal line from right to left) to erase the carriage
return and bring the cursor back to the end of the phrase.
Tap on the word "brown" between the "r" and the "o". The cursor will move between
the letters. Use the Insert Space gesture to insert a blank space at the cursor position:
74
Using the Handwriting Recognition Utilities
The space is inserted:
Use the Erase gesture again to remove the unneeded space. As you have learned
earlier you can change the case of letters in the Correction Window by using the Case
Changing gesture. It is simply an upward vertical stroke while the letter is selected.
The same gesture can be used to similarly edit text in any window. First select the
characters (individual letters, whole words or groups of words). Use the Case
Changing gesture to change the case of the selection:
Text Editing Using CalliGrapher
75
And the word "quick" becomes "QUICK":
To reverse the action just completed use the Undo gesture to return the text to lower
case (this is identical to pressing the Alt and Z keys on the keyboard). Note that the
two ’legs’ of the gesture have the same length:
76
Using the Handwriting Recognition Utilities
The text reverts to lower case:
You may use your stylus to change letters and words. For example, to change the
first letter in the word "brown" to "c", select the letter you wish to change, then
simply write the substitute letter:
Text Editing Using CalliGrapher
77
The recognized letter "c" replaces the selected "b":
78
Using the Handwriting Recognition Utilities
You can select and overwrite an entire word. For example, the word "quick" can be
changed to "red":
Here is the resulting word substitution:
You can see these and other gestures in the CalliGrapher Help:
Text Editing Using CalliGrapher
79
How to Select Text Using Pen (Stylus)
4
You can select text with your pen just as you would in the standard mode by
pressing on your system display with the stylus and waiting for a "click" sound. With
the stylus still pressed to the screen, drag it across the text you wish to select. Lifting
the stylus ends the selection, leaving the text highlighted and ready for editing.
If you proceed with dragging the stylus before the "click" occurs, you can prevent
CalliGrapher from interpreting this as a gesture or handwritten entry by maintaining
the stylus position against the screen (do not lift up). Eventually CalliGrapher will
"click" and select the text along the line you have drawn.
There is another method of selection. You can use it when all you need is to select a
single word, or a few words on a single line. Just draw a horizontal line from left to
right covering the words you wish to select. It works the same way as in the
appropriate correction window example.
Screen Drawing
In CalliGrapher, you can not only write on the screen your text notes, but you can
just draw on the screen, too. And your drawings can be saved for future use.
You may use this feature, for example, to show someone how one can get to your
office:
80
Using the Handwriting Recognition Utilities
4
Or you may wish to jot down some ideas that came to your mind during lunch (so as
not to forget them afterwards):
To use this feature, switch CalliGrapher to the ScreenDraw mode. This may be done
either by selecting "ScreenDraw mode" from the CalliGrapher menu or by tapping on
the marker icon on a taskbar so that it becomes highlighted, like this:
Now you can draw on top of everything that is on the screen.
Open CalliGrapher menu (as usual, by letting the pen tip rest for a while on any of
the CalliGrapher icons in the tray). As you see, it is somewhat different from the
Recognition mode menu:
Screen Drawing
81
The new menu items are more or less self-explanatory - you can clear everything
you’ve drawn, save or load your drawing, or force CalliGrapher to recognize your
drawing as a handwritten text.
You can delete separate strokes in your drawing as well. Just cross the unwanted
strokes with a new one and don’t lift the pen until the "click" sounds - the crossed out
strokes will be deleted.
Screen Orientation
4
With CalliGrapher, you can choose the orientation of the handwritten text. This way
you can turn your PenCentra 200 upside down or sideways.
To change the orientation, you need to have the "Orientation" icon in the tray. Open
the CalliGrapher menu. Select "Options...". Press on the "Icons" tab in the
"CalliGrapher Options" dialog box. Make sure the "Orientation" option is checked,
like this:
If it is not checked, tap on the check box below the arrow.
Press "OK" to close the "CalliGrapher Options" dialog box.
Now you should see the "Orientation" icon on a taskbar. It looks like an arrow
pointing to the "up" direction for writing:
To change the writing orientation, tap on this arrow.
You may set orientation to 45 and 90 degrees directions. Tap on the arrow a few
times to see what is available.
Calculator
CalliGrapher’s RiteCalc feature makes it easy to perform simple mathematical
operations just by writing a formula, such as 23*7.5= or 3.23+2.57=.
82
Using the Handwriting Recognition Utilities
4
Calculations are performed on numbers with up to two digits after the decimal point
and seven digits before it. The result is limited to the same range. Allowed operations
symbols are +, -, ×, *, ÷, :, /, %.
The command to perform a calculation is the equal sign (=) at the end of the formula.
A formula (including the final "=") must be written as one sentence.
Configuration Tips
4
This section contains some additional things you may do with CalliGrapher using its
various configuration settings.
To see and/or set the CalliGrapher configuration settings, open the CalliGrapher
menu and choose "Options..." in it.
The options dialog will show up:
Now you are ready to follow the discussions in this part of Quick Start Guide.
Multiple User Dictionaries
4
When you add words to dictionary (using the local menu in the correction window),
they go to your current User Dictionary.
You may have more than one user dictionary. For example, you could produce one
user dictionary for special terms of your profession - to write technical notes, another
one - for chess or bridge terms - to make notes during play, etc.
You may set the current user dictionary (or disable any) in the "Configure" tab in the
options dialog.
Taskbar Customization
4
You may speed up some actions in CalliGrapher by putting the buttons for them on a
Windows CE taskbar.
For example, if writing the correction gesture creates some difficulties for you, you
may use the taskbar button for this purpose.
Configuration Tips
83
Conversely, if you always use CalliGrapher in one and the same mode and feel
confident using gestures for editing, you may wish to unclutter the taskbar. In this
case, remove the unwanted buttons/icons from it.
You may use the "Icons" tab in the options dialog to do the job.
More Pleasant vs. More Detailed Inking
4
The "Ink" tab in the options dialog allows you to set the width and the color of the
ink. The ink trajectory looks most pleasing to eyes when it’s width is set to 2 or 3
pixels. This is why 3 pixels is used as a default width.
You may wish, however, to see the fine details in the ink. In this case, set the ink
width to 1.
Conversely, for the big display with fine resolution you may choose to increase ink
visibility by increasing it’s width.
If You Aren’t a Cursive Writer...
4
If you never actually write cursive, you may prevent CalliGrapher from trying to
interpret your letters as cursively written words. This should increase both
recognition accuracy and the speed.
The appropriate control may be found in the "Recognizer" tab in the options dialog. It
is called "Separate Letters Mode".
Quick Note Taking
4
With the CalliGrapher screen drawing, you can actually use your PenCentra 200 as a
substitute of those small yellow sticky pieces of paper that get lost so easily.
You may configure the "Icons" and "Notes" options so that you’d be able to save your
note (a.k.a. screen drawing) and clear the screen for the next one simply by a click of
a button.
First, in "Icons" tab of the options dialog, make sure the "Save ScreenDraw Ink" action
is checked:
84
Using the Handwriting Recognition Utilities
Second, check the option "Save without prompt" in the "Notes" tab in the options
dialog box:
A button looking like a small diskette appears on the taskbar:
In the Screen Draw mode, write the note (like "Jim’s phone - 111-22-33"). Tap on the
diskette button, and your note will be saved and the screen cleaned for the next one!
The note will be saved as a file in the "Default folder"; the file name will be "File
Prefix for Auto Naming" plus the time stamp (both are the options in the "Notes" tab
in the options dialog box (shown above).
Fine-tuning the Handwriting Features
4
Look at this word:
Can you tell whether the first letter is the capital "F" or the small "f"?
The problem is, some people write both letters like this and differentiate them only
by their size (and in our example, the size is ambiguous). Other people write only the
capital "F" this way, and for them this example should read "F", not "f", regardless of
the actual letter size.
You may instruct CalliGrapher about what is your way of writing. If, for example,
you only write the capital "F" like this, it wouldn’t be recognized as "f".
Fine-tuning the Handwriting Features
85
To do this, open the CalliGrapher menu and select "Letter Shape Selector". You will
see then something like this:
Here CalliGrapher shows you many common ways of writing characters. And you
may tell it which of those you never use, or use rarely.
Tap on various parts of this display to see the effect. Don’t worry: if you occasionally
mess up the settings, you may always select "File / Use Original Settings" from the
menu in the top left corner of the application window.
Tap on the currently selected letter shape (the one surrounded by the rounded
rectangle). You will see the dynamics of that character writing.
The last note: there are two sets of letter shapes’ settings, called Master and Guest.
You may, for example, customize the "Master" set for yourself, the "Guest" set for
someone who borrows your PenCentra 200 for a while. The currently used set is
selected from the menu in the top left corner of the application window.

Using Handwriter for HPC 2000
4
The H/PC 2000 systems include two handwriting recognizers from CIC: Jot and
Handwriter for HPC 2000. Jot offers single character recognition, providing
immediate user feedback. Handwriter provides full context natural character
recognition with complete macro and gesture support.
The Handwriter for HPC 2000 application provides tutorials for learning each of the
utilities. Going through the tutorial exercises is strongly recommended in order to
become comfortable with Handwriter for HPC 2000.
To access Handwriter, click on the Start button, then select Setting > Control Panel.
Double-click on the Recognizer icon. The Recognizer Properties window consists of
five tabs:
General tab
4
The General tab allows you to select the type of character set you would like the
system to recognize. Select one of the three radio buttons:
• Jot - Character set that uses natural character shapes.
• Jot - Simplified uppercase characters
• Handwriter - Full character set
If you have selected either of the Jot buttons, the Tutorial button is available on the
General tabs screen. Click on the Tutorial button to learn more about Jot and for an
animated demo of the characters.
Appearance tab
4
The Appearance tab lets you customize the appearance of the on-screen “ink” created
by choosing a line width and color.
You can also change the position and orientation of the mode mark in this window.
The mode mark is a triangular shape that appears on the top or right edge of the
screen when the recognizer software is active. When you write to the left (or bottom)
of the mode mark, the characters appear as lowercase. When you write to the right
(or top) of the mode mark, the characters appear as numbers. When you write in the
center of the screen, straddling the mode mark, the characters appear as capitalized
letters.
Using Handwriter for HPC 2000
87
On the Appearance tab window, you can change the size and orientation of the mode
mark, and determine whether you want it to be visible.
Note that when Handwriter is selected, the mode mark options are not available.
This is because Handwriter recognizes all characters as written. For example, if a
lowercase “e” is written, a lower-case “e” will appear. If an upper-case “E” is written,
an upper-case “E” will appear. To “train” Handwriter to recognize your writing
style, click on the HRS Advanced tab, and select the Trainer.
Time-Outs tab
4
When one of the Jot buttons is selected, the Time-outs tab allows you to determine
two speeds:
• How long you must hold down the pen to switch from inking to text selection or
drag-and-drop.
• How long you have to write the next stroke of a multi-stroke character.
If Handwriter is selected, the following two choices are available:
• How long you wish to allow before recognition occurs after you finish writing.
• How long before the pen switches from ink to text selection or drag-and-drop.
Advanced tab
4
The Advanced tab provides you with three buttons:
• Macro Editor: The Macro Editor lets you create shortcuts for phrases and actions.
• Trainer: If “Jot - Character set that uses natural character shapes” is selected in the
General window, the Trainer allows you to customize the Natural Character Set
by enabling or disabling character shapes. If “Jot - Simplified uppercase
characters” is selected, the Trainer is disabled. If Handwriter is selected, the
Trainer allows you to customize the full character set.
• Reset: The Rest button returns the settings of the Appearance and Time-out tabs
to their default settings.
The Advanced tab for Handwriter additionally allows you to enable or disable the
Recognition Dictionary, and to automatically insert a space after a pause when
writing complete words.
About tab
4
The About tab provides version, copyright and patent information about Handwriter
for HPC 2000.

Chapter 5
Care and Maintenance of the PenCentra 200
This chapter provides pointers on how to care for and maintain your PenCentra 200
pen tablet.
Protecting the Display Screen
5
The PenCentra 200 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
89
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 200 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 200
5
Store the PenCentra 200 pen tablet in Suspended state with a fully charged battery
pack installed. The PenCentra 200 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.
90
Care and Maintenance of the PenCentra 200
Protecting the PenCentra 200 Pen Tablet in Harsh Environments 5
The PenCentra 200 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 200 harsh environment case (FMWCC36) and the PenCentra 200 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 200 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 200, 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 200 pen tablet is not waterproof. Do not pour
liquids on the pen tablet or wash the pen tablet with a heavily
soaked cloth.

Chapter 6
Troubleshooting the PenCentra 200
Solutions to some common problems are described in the following sections. If you
are experiencing a problem with your PenCentra 200 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 200 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.
• 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.
93
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.
You will hear a beep if it is working properly. 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, check the following:

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.

Digitizer Technology Notice
Additional Display Information
6
The display for your pen tablet incorporates a breakthrough digitizer technology that
dramatically improves outdoor viewability. Compared to traditional outdoor
displays, the new display excels in providing superior visibility in full sunlight, and a
clear, bright picture indoors, in low light conditions, or at night.
This new technology involves the use of a liquid between the digitizer layers to
minimize light refraction and reduce glare. As a result of this technology, users may
notice the appearance of tiny air bubbles which are caused by changes in pressure
(such as that experienced in an airplane). These tiny bubbles are temporary and do
not affect system performance or usability. The digitizer functions normally when
the air bubbles are present.
The air bubbles are formed when the liquid vaporizes due to pressure change. When
the pen tablet is returned to normal use conditions, the tiny air bubbles are absorbed
back into the liquid after a short amount of time.
If these air bubbles are visually distracting, or if they form a larger bubble, gently rub
the screen with a soft cotton cloth in a circular motion, similar to cleaning the screen
of fingerprint oil.
