Writing Letters With Graffiti
Most people find they can enter text quickly and accurately with only
minutes of practice. Graffiti includes any character you can type on a
standard keyboard. The Graffiti strokes closely resemble those of the
regular alphabet which makes it quick and easy to learn. For example,
the following Graffiti strokes are portions of the regular alphabet
equivalents.

Basic Handbook for the Palm III Organizer
There are four basic concepts for success with Graffiti:
■
If you draw the character shape exactly as shown in the tables later
in this chapter (like the shapes shown in the following diagram),
you achieve 100% accuracy.
■
The heavy dot on each shape shows where to begin the stroke.
Certain characters have similar shapes, but different beginning
and end points. Always begin the stroke at the heavy dot.
■
Most characters require only a single stroke. When you lift the
stylus from the Graffiti writing area, your Palm III organizer
recognizes and displays the text character immediately.
■
The Graffiti writing area is divided into two parts: one for writing
the letters of the alphabet and one for writing numbers. The small
marks at the top and bottom of the Graffiti writing area indicate
the two areas.
Write letters here
Write numbers here
Division marks
To write letters of the alphabet with Graffiti:
1. Tap the screen where you want your text to go.
2. Use the table on the next page to find the stroke shape for the letter
you want to create. For example, the stroke shown below creates
the letter “n.”
Note:
Chapter 2
There are two different stroke shapes available for some
letters. For these letters, choose the one that’s easiest for
you.
Page 19
Lift stylus
here
Start stroke
at heavy dot
As you’ll see later, you use these shapes to create both upper- and
lowercase letters.
3. Position the stylus in the left-hand side of the Graffiti writing area.
4. Start your stroke at the heavy dot, and draw the stroke shape as it
appears in the table.
Note:
Don’t try to draw the dot shape itself. The heavy dot is
there to show the starting point of the stroke.
5. Lift the stylus from the screen at the end of the stroke shape.
That’s all there is to it! When you lift the stylus from the screen, your
Palm III organizer recognizes your stroke immediately and prints the
letter at the insertion point on the screen.
As soon as you lift the stylus from the screen, you can begin the stroke
for the next character you want to write.
Important: You must begin the character strokes in the Graffiti
writing area. If you do not make Graffiti strokes in the
Graffiti writing area, your Palm III organizer does not
recognize them as text characters.
Graffiti Tips
When writing with Graffiti, keep these tips in mind:
■
Accuracy improves when you write large characters. You should
draw strokes that nearly fill the Graffiti writing area.
■
To delete characters, simply set the insertion point to the right of
the character you want to delete and make the backspace stroke
(a line from right to left) in the Graffiti writing area.
■
Write at natural speed. Writing too slowly can generate
recognition errors.
■
Do not write on a slant. Vertical strokes should be parallel to the
sides of the Graffiti writing area.

Writing Capital Letters With Graffiti
You make capital letters with the same stroke shapes as the basic
alphabet characters. To make capital letters, you must first “shift” to
caps — just as you press the Shift key on a keyboard — and then write
the character strokes.
Note: Graffiti includes a Smart Shifting feature which automatically
capitalizes the first letter when you create a new entry (by
tapping a New button or a blank line).
To draw the first letter of a word as a capital letter:
■
Use the Caps Shift stroke:
Caps
Shift
Tip:
When Caps Shift is active, an “up arrow” symbol appears in
the lower-right corner of the Palm III organizer screen.
To enter only capital letters (Caps Lock):
■
Use the Caps Lock stroke:
Caps
Lock
Tip:
When Caps Lock is active, an underlined “up arrow” symbol
appears in the lower-right corner of the Palm III organizer
screen. To return to lowercase, make the Caps Shift stroke.
Writing Numbers With Graffiti
Writing numbers with Graffiti is similar to writing letters of the
alphabet, except that you make the character strokes on the right-hand
side (numbers side) of the Graffiti writing area.

Writing Punctuation Marks With Graffiti
Graffiti can create any punctuation symbol that you can enter from a
standard keyboard. All punctuation marks begin with a single tap on
the Graffiti writing area. When you make this tap, you activate
Punctuation Shift and a dot appears to show it is active. The next
stroke you make with the stylus creates a punctuation mark.

Writing Accented Characters
To create accented characters, draw the stroke normally used to create
the letter, followed by an accent stroke. Graffiti then adds the accent
to the letter.
For example, the following diagram shows the strokes required to
draw an accented “e.”
=e
Accent Strokes

Additional Non-English Characters
You can write the following characters in the lowercase alphabet
mode without any special punctuation or shifting:

Navigation Strokes
In addition to character symbols, Graffiti includes special strokes that
you can use to navigate within text or fields in your Palm III organizer
applications.

Graffiti ShortCuts
Graffiti’s ShortCuts make entering commonly used words or phrases
quick and easy. ShortCuts are similar to the Glossary or Autotext
features of some word processors.
Graffiti comes with several predefined ShortCuts, and you can also
create your own. Each ShortCut can represent up to 45 characters. For
example, you might create a ShortCut for your name, or for the header
of a memo. See “ShortCuts Preferences” in the Applications Handbook
for the Palm III Organizer to learn about creating your own ShortCuts.
To use a ShortCut, draw the ShortCut stroke followed by the ShortCut

Button. Tap a button to perform a command.
Buttons appear with different text depending on
their function. In most cases, tapping a button
opens or closes a dialog. A dialog is a screen that
appears on your Palm III organizer, prompting you
to enter information or make settings. A dialog
always contains an OK, Cancel or Done button, so
you can close the dialog when you are through with
it. The on-screen keyboard is an example of a
dialog.
Scroll bar. Drag the slider to scroll the display one
line at a time. To scroll to the previous page, tap the
arrow at the top of the scroll bar. To scroll to the
next page, tap the arrow at the bottom of the scroll
bar.
Using Menus
Menus are a special set of commands that are available in most of your
Palm III organizer applications (Memo Pad, Date Book, etc.). The exact
commands that appear in the menus depend on the application that is
currently running on your Palm III organizer.
Some menu commands are common to all Palm III organizer
applications. The common menu commands are described in this
section; other menu commands are described in the chapters about
each Palm III organizer application in the Applications Handbook for the
Palm III Organizer.
To activate the menus:
1. Open a Palm III organizer application (such as the Memo Pad, as
described earlier in this chapter).
2. Tap the
icon to open the menus for the application at the top of
the screen.
Page 28
Basic Handbook for the Palm III Organizer
Tap the Menus icon
In this example, three menus are available: Record, Edit and Options.
The Record menu is selected and contains the “New Memo,” “Delete
Memo” and “Beam Memo” commands.
Choosing a Menu
After you activate the menus for an application, tap the menu that
contains the command you want to use.
The menus and menu commands that are available depend on the
application that is currently running on your Palm III organizer. Also,
the menus and menu selections vary depending on which part of the
application is currently on the screen. Using the Memo Pad
application as an example, the menus are different for the Memo List
screen and the Memo screen.
Graffiti Menu Commands
Most menu commands have Graffiti “Command stroke” equivalents
— similar to keyboard commands on computers. The command
letters appear on the right side of the menu commands.
Menu commands

Chapter 2
Page 29
To use the Graffiti menu commands, draw the Command stroke
followed by the corresponding command letter. When you draw the
Command stroke, the Command symbol appears just above the
Graffiti writing area to indicate that you are in Command mode.
Command
For example, to activate the Select All command in the previous
diagram, draw the Command stroke, followed by the letter “s.”
Note: You do not have to tap the
icon or access the menus when
you use the Graffiti menu commands. However, since the
Command mode is active for approximately two seconds, you
must write the letter character immediately to activate the
menu command.
Edit Menu Commands
The Edit menu is available with any screen where you enter or edit
text. In general, the Edit Menu commands available in the Edit menu
apply to text that you select in an application.
To select text in an application:
1. Tap the beginning of the text that you want to select.
2. Drag the stylus over the text to highlight it (in black).

Undo
Reverses the action of the last edit command. For
example, if you used the Cut command to
remove text, the Undo command replaces the
text you removed.
Cut
Removes the selected text and stores it
temporarily in the memory of your Palm III
organizer. You can paste the text you cut into
another area of the Palm III organizer
application or into a different Palm III organizer
application.

Using Categories
Categories can help you group Address entries, To Do items or
Memos for easy review. You cannot, however, assign categories to
Date Book events.
When you first create an entry, it is “Unfiled,” which means it does not
belong to any particular category. You can leave an entry as Unfiled
or assign it to a category at any time. Either way, the entry is always
available until you delete it. The category you choose is used only for
sorting and reviewing records. The category you select does not affect
the actual contents of the record.
Note: The use of categories is optional. You do not need to assign
categories to use Palm III organizer applications.
To assign a category to an entry:
1. Tap a To Do item or Memo, or tap an Address Book entry then tap
the Edit button in the Address View screen (refer to the
descriptions in the Applications Handbook for the Palm III Organizer
for details).
2. Tap the Details button to open the Details dialog.
3. Tap the Category pick list to display a list of available categories.

formerly in the Personal category appear in the Business
category.
Page 36
Basic Handbook for the Palm III Organizer
Attaching Notes
Palm III organizer applications (except the Memo Pad) enable you to
attach a note to an entry. A note is anything that you want to write,

can use to “beam” information from one 3Com® connected organizer
to another. The IR port is located at the top of the Palm III organizer
behind the small dark shield.
Note: If you are using a device other than a Palm III organizer,
please confirm that your device includes the required infrared
hardware before you use this feature.
You can beam the following information between 3Com connected
organizers:
■
The current Address Book, Date Book, To Do List or Memo Pad
entry
■
All the Address Book, To Do List or Memo Pad entries in the
current category
■
A special Address Book entry which you designate as your
“business card” (see “Beaming Address Entries to Other 3Com

Finding Information With Your
Palm III™ Organizer
This chapter explains how to locate information on
your Palm III™ connected organizer with the Find
command and the Phone Lookup command.
Using the Find Command
The Find command locates any text that you specify and is available
in any Palm III organizer application. You can search for whole words
or the beginning letters of a word. The Find command automatically
searches all the data on your Palm III organizer and lists which
applications contain the text.
For example, suppose you want to find a particular name, but aren’t
sure where you stored it. The Find command immediately lists all
instances of that name and enables you to jump directly to the name.
To use the Find command:
1. Tap the
icon from any Palm III organizer application to open
the Find dialog.
Tip:
If you select text in a Palm III organizer application before
you tap the Find button, the selected text automatically
appears in the Find dialog.
2. Enter the text that you want to find in your Palm III organizer.
Note:
The Find command is not case-sensitive. In other words,
searching for the name “davidson” also finds
“Davidson.” The Find command also searches the
contents of notes.
3. Tap the OK button to display a list of all instances of the text that
you specified.
Chapter 3
Page 41
Note:
As your Palm III organizer searches for the text, you can
tap the Stop button at any time. You may want to do this
if the entry you want appears before your Palm III
organizer finishes the search. To continue the search after
you tap Stop, tap the Find More button.
4. Tap the text that you want to review to display the selected entry
and its corresponding Palm III organizer application on the screen.
Using Phone Lookup
In addition to using the Find feature to locate text, you can search for
and display phone numbers with the Phone Lookup menu command.
After you find a phone number, you can paste it directly into a Palm
III organizer application.
For example, if you want to include a phone number in a memo, you
could use the Phone Lookup feature to find the phone number and
transfer it directly into the memo.
To use the Phone Lookup command:
1. Display the entry where you want to insert a phone number. This
can be an event in the Date Book, a To Do List Item or a memo in
the Memo Pad application.
Note:
2. Tap the
The Phone Lookup feature is not available in the Address
Book and Expense applications.
icon to open the menus for your application.
3. Tap Phone Lookup from the Options menu to display the Phone
Number Lookup screen.
Page 42
Basic Handbook for the Palm III Organizer
4. Tap the phone number you want to use.
Note:
To find a phone number more quickly, you can enter the
first letter of the name you want to find in the Look Up
line at the bottom of the screen. The list automatically
scrolls to the first name that starts with that letter. You can
continue to add letters to narrow your search.
5. Tap the Add button to close the Phone Number Lookup screen and
paste the name and phone number you selected into the entry you
selected in step 1.
Phone Lookup Tips
You can also use the Graffiti® Command stroke “/L” to activate the
Phone Lookup feature.
■
You can use Phone Lookup while entering text. For example, to
insert the full name and phone number for someone with the last
name “Williams,” you would write the Graffiti characters for “Wi”
and then the Phone Lookup Command stroke “/L.”
Assuming you have only one Address Book entry that begins with
“Wi,” your Palm III organizer inserts the full name “Williams”
(and the corresponding phone number). If you have more than
one name that begins with “Wi,” the Phone Lookup screen
appears.
■
The Phone Lookup feature also works for selected text. Drag to
highlight the text, and then write the Phone Lookup Command
stroke “/L.” Your Palm III organizer replaces the selected text and
adds the phone number to the name that it finds.

Troubleshooting
If you encounter a problem with your Palm III organizer, look in this
section for the description that most closely matches the symptoms
you observe and try the suggestions listed.
Important: For troubleshooting tips not included in this handbook,
refer to either the README.TXT file or the HelpNotes file
located in the Palm Desktop directory. These files are also
on the installation CD-ROM (and diskettes).
Installation Troubleshooting
Do not place your Palm III organizer in the cradle while installing the
Palm Desktop software. If the Palm III organizer is in the cradle, the
installation program may incorrectly detect that a modem is attached
to one of your available serial ports.
HotSync® Troubleshooting
A Local HotSync operation does not complete successfully:
■
Make sure HotSync Manager is running. If HotSync Manager is
running, exit and restart it.
■
Make sure you selected Local from the HotSync Manager menu or
the Palm Desktop menu.
■
Check the cable connection between the Palm III organizer cradle
and the serial port on your computer.
■
Make sure you selected the correct serial port on the Local tab in
the Setup dialog. It should be set to the port where you connected
the Palm III organizer cradle.
■
Try a lower baud rate setting on the Local tab in the Setup dialog.
■
Make sure you are not running another program — such as
America Online, CompuServe or WinFax — that uses the serial
port you selected in the Setup dialog box.
■
Read the HotSync Log for the user account for which you are
performing a HotSync operation.
A Modem HotSync operation does not complete successfully:
Check the following on your computer:
■
Make sure your computer is turned on, and that it does not shut
down automatically as part of an energy-saving feature.
Page 52
Basic Handbook for the Palm III Organizer
■
Make sure the modem connected to your computer is turned on
and is connected to the outgoing phone line.
■
Confirm that your modem doesn't have an auto-off feature
enabled.
■
Make sure the modem is connected properly to a serial port on
your computer and is connected to the incoming phone line.
■
Confirm that the Setup String in the Setup dialog box configures
your modem correctly. You may need to select a different Modem
Type or enter a custom Setup String. Most modems have a Setup
String that causes them to send initial connection sounds to a
speaker. You can use these sounds to check the modem
connection.
■
Confirm that the Speed setting in the Setup dialog box is
appropriate for your modem.
■
If you have problems using the As Fast As Possible option or a
specific speed, try using a slower speed.
■
Make sure you selected Modem from the HotSync Manager menu.
■
Make sure you are not running another program — such as
America Online, CompuServe or WinFax — that uses the serial
port you selected in the Setup dialog box.
■
Make sure your modem resets before you try again. (Turn off your
modem, wait a minute, then turn it back on.)
Check the following on your Palm III organizer:
■
Make sure you are using the Palm modem cable to connect to your
modem.
Important: Do not attempt to use other cables to connect a Palm III
organizer to a modem.
■
Check the modem cable connection between your Palm III
organizer and your modem.
■
Confirm that your modem is turned on.
■
Make sure the modem you are using with your Palm III organizer
has an on-off switch. Your Palm III organizer cannot “wake up” a
modem that has an auto-off feature.
■
Make sure the dialing instruction dials the correct phone number.
■
If you need to dial an outside line prefix, make sure you selected
the Dial Prefix option on your Palm III organizer and entered the
correct code.
Chapter 5
Page 53
■
If the telephone line you are using has Call Waiting, make sure
you selected the Disable call waiting option under Modem Sync
Phone Setup on your Palm III organizer and entered the correct
code.
■
Make sure the telephone line you are using is not noisy, which can
interrupt communications.
■
Make sure your modem resets before you try again. (Turn off your
modem, wait a minute, then turn it back on.)
General Troubleshooting
Palm III organizer does not turn on:
■
Adjust the contrast control.
■
Make sure batteries are installed properly.
■
Replace the batteries. If your Palm III organizer still does not
operate, try a soft reset; see “Resetting Your Palm III™ Organizer.”
Low battery warning after replacing the batteries:
■
The battery warning message may appear immediately after
replacing the batteries. In addition, if you check the battery gauge
in the Applications Launcher immediately after replacing the
batteries, the gauge may start at “empty” and slowly rise to “full.”
This is normal. It takes a few minutes for the battery gauge to
accurately show the condition of the batteries.
No sound:
■
Check the System Sound option in the General Preferences screen.
If the option is set to off, there will be no sound. See “General
Preferences” in the Applications Handbook for the Palm III Organizer
for more information.
Palm III organizer turns itself off:
■
Your Palm III organizer is designed to turn itself off after a period
of inactivity. This period can be set at one minute, two minutes or
three minutes. Check the “Auto-off after” setting in the General
Preferences screen, and change the setting if you need a longer
delay before the automatic shutoff feature activates. See “General
Preferences” in the Applications Handbook for the Palm III Organizer
for more information.
Page 54
Basic Handbook for the Palm III Organizer
Palm III organizer doesn’t recognize my handwriting:
■
For your Palm III organizer to recognize handwriting input with
the stylus, you need to use the Graffiti® character strokes. See
“Writing With the Stylus” for information about how to write
Graffiti character strokes.
■
Make the Graffiti character strokes in the Graffiti writing area —
not on the display part of the screen.
■
Make sure you are writing the strokes for letters in the left-hand
side, and the strokes for numbers in the right-hand side of the
Graffiti writing area.
■
Make sure that Graffiti is not shifted into extended or punctuation
modes. See “Writing With the Stylus” for information about
shifting into and out of punctuation modes.
Tapping the screen buttons or icons does not activate the corresponding feature:
■
Recalibrate the digitizer. Choose Digitizer from the Preferences
application pick list and follow the directions on the screen.
When I tap the
■
icon, nothing happens:
Not all applications or screens have menus. Try changing to a
different application.
A message appears stating that your Palm III organizer memory is full:
■
Delete unused memos and records. If necessary, you can save
these records on your computer using the Save Backup Copy
option that appears in the Delete dialogs.
■
Purge the Date Book and To Do List applications. This deletes
complete To Do items and past Date Book events from the
memory of your Palm III organizer. Note that you may need to
perform a HotSync operation to recover the memory.
■
If you have installed additional applications on your Palm III
organizer, remove them to recover memory.
Beamed data does not transmit:
■
Confirm that the 3Com connected organizers are between five
centimeters (approximately 2") and one meter (approximately 40")
apart, and that the path between the two devices is clear of
obstacles.
Chapter 5
Page 55
When receiving beamed data an out of memory message appears:
■
Your Palm III organizer requires at least twice amount of memory
available as the data you are receiving. For example, if you are

I forgot the password, and my Palm III organizer is not locked:
■
You can use the Security application to delete the password. If you
do this, your Palm III organizer deletes all entries marked as
Private. However, you can perform a HotSync operation before you
delete the password: the HotSync process backs up all entries,
whether or not they are marked private. In this case, the following
procedure restores your private entries and lets you access them:
1. Use the Palm Desktop software and the Palm III organizer
cradle to synchronize your data.
2. Tap the Forgotten Password button in the Security application
to remove the password and delete all Private entries.
3. Perform a HotSync operation to synchronize your data and
restore the private entries by transferring them from your
computer to your Palm III organizer.
I forgot the password and my Palm III organizer is locked:
■
If you assign a password and lock your Palm III organizer, you
must perform a hard reset to continue using your Palm III
organizer. See “Resetting Your Palm III™ Organizer” for details.
Applications Troubleshooting
The following troubleshooting tips are specific to the various Palm III
organizer applications.
Tapping the Today button doesn’t display the current date:
■
Your Palm III organizer is not set to the current date. Make sure
the Set Date box in the General Preferences screen displays the
current date. See “General Preferences” in the Applications
Handbook for the Palm III Organizer for more information.
Entries seem to be missing in various applications:
■
Check the Categories pick list (upper-right corner of the screen).
Choose All to display all of the records for the application.
■
Check the Security application and make sure that the Private
Records setting is set to Show private records.
Page 56
Basic Handbook for the Palm III Organizer
Memo Pad application:
■
If you cannot manually arrange the order of the memos in the List
screen, check the Memo Preferences setting. Make sure that Sort
by is set to Manual.
■
If you choose to view your memos alphabetically on Palm
Desktop and then perform a HotSync operation, the memos on
your Palm III organizer still appear in the order defined in the
Memo Preferences setting. In other words, the sort settings that
you use with Palm Desktop are not transferred to your Palm III
organizer.
Date Book application:
■
In the Week View, you cannot select overlapping events that have
the same start time. If you have two or more events with the same
start time, choose the Day View for the particular day to see the
overlapping events.

Chapter 6
Maintaining Your
Palm III™ Organizer
This chapter provides information to help you take
proper care of your Palm III™ connected organizer
and prolong battery life. It also discusses how to
reset your Palm III organizer.
Caring for Your Palm III Organizer
Your Palm III organizer is designed to be rugged and reliable and to
provide years of trouble-free service. However, you should observe
the following general tips when using your Palm III organizer:
■
Take care not to scratch the screen of your Palm III organizer.
When working with your Palm III organizer, use the supplied
stylus or plastic-tipped pens intended for use with a touchsensitive screen. Never use an actual pen or pencil or other sharp
object on the surface of the Palm III organizer screen.
■
Your Palm III organizer is not waterproof and should not be
exposed to rain or moisture. Under extreme conditions, water may
enter the circuitry through the front panel buttons. In general, treat
your Palm III organizer as you would a pocket calculator or other
small electronic instrument.
■
The touch-sensitive screen of your Palm III organizer contains a
glass element. Take care not to drop your Palm III organizer or
subject it to any strong impact. Do not carry your Palm III
organizer in your back pocket: if you sit on it, the glass may break.
■
Protect your Palm III organizer from temperature extremes. Do
not leave your Palm III organizer on the dashboard of a car on a
hot day, and keep it away from heaters and other heat sources.
■
Do not store or use your Palm III organizer in any location that is
extremely dusty, damp or wet.
■
Use a soft, damp cloth to clean your Palm III organizer. If the
surface of the Palm III organizer screen becomes soiled, clean it
with a soft cloth moistened with a diluted window-cleaning
solution.
Chapter 6
Page 61
Battery Considerations
Please note the following considerations when replacing the batteries
in your Palm III organizer:
■
Under normal conditions, your Palm III organizer batteries should
provide several months of use. You can conserve battery life by
minimizing the use of the backlight feature, and changing the
“Auto-off after” setting that automatically turns the Palm III
organizer off after a period of inactivity (see “General Preferences”
in the Applications Handbook for the Palm III Organizer).
■
If the batteries become low in the course of normal use, an alert
appears on the Palm III organizer screen describing the low
battery condition. If this alert appears, perform a HotSync®
synchronization to back up your data before you replace the
batteries. This helps prevent accidental data loss.
■
When replacing the batteries, begin by turning your Palm III
organizer off (so there is no screen display). Never remove the
batteries while your Palm III organizer is turned on.
■
When replacing the batteries, always use good quality batteries of
the same type. Use only alkaline batteries with your Palm III
organizer.
■
When you remove the batteries, the built-in backup power of your
Palm III organizer maintains memory data for a period of up to
one minute. Whenever you remove the batteries, replace them
immediately. If you encounter any difficulties in the course of
battery replacement, reinstall the original batteries and wait a few
minutes for the backup power to recharge.
■
If the batteries drain to the point where your Palm III organizer
does not operate, it stores your data safely for about a month. In
this case, there is enough residual energy in the batteries to store
the data, but not enough to turn on your Palm III organizer. If your
Palm III organizer does not turn on when you press the green
power button, you should replace the batteries immediately.
■
If you leave drained batteries in your Palm III organizer for an
extended period of time, you can lose all of the stored data. If this
happens, replace the batteries and use the reset button to reset
your Palm III organizer. (See “Resetting Your Palm III™
Organizer” later in this chapter for details.) After you reset your
Palm III organizer, perform a HotSync operation to restore the
data from your computer.
Page 62
Basic Handbook for the Palm III Organizer
Resetting Your Palm III Organizer
Under normal circumstances, you will never have to use the reset
button. However, on rare occasions your Palm III organizer may
“hang” (no longer respond to buttons or the screen). In this case, you
need to perform a reset to get your Palm III organizer running again.
Performing a Soft Reset
A soft reset tells your Palm III organizer to stop what it’s doing and
start over again. All records and entries stored in your Palm III
organizer are retained with a soft reset. After a soft reset, the Welcome
to Palm III organizer screen appears followed by the General
Preferences screen (to set time and date).
To perform a soft reset:
■
Use the tip of an unfolded paper clip (or similar object without a
sharp tip) to gently press the reset button inside the hole on the
back panel of your Palm III organizer.
Reset button
Performing a Hard Reset
A hard reset also tells your Palm III organizer to start over again. With
a hard reset all records and entries stored in your Palm III organizer
are erased. Therefore, never perform a hard reset unless a soft reset does not
solve your problem.
Note: You can restore any data previously synchronized with your
computer during the next HotSync operation.
Chapter 6
Page 63
To perform a hard reset:
1. Hold down the green power button on the front panel of the Palm
III organizer.
2. While holding down the power button, use the tip of an unfolded
paper clip (or similar object without a sharp tip) to gently press the
reset button.
3. When a message appears on the Palm III organizer screen warning
that you are about to erase all the data stored on your Palm III
organizer, do one of the following:
■
Press the upper half of the scroll button on the front panel of the
Palm III organizer to complete the hard reset and display the
Digitizer screen.
■
Press any other button to perform a soft reset.
Note: With a hard reset, the current date and time are retained.
Formats Preferences and other settings are restored to their
factory default settings.
