Join Nick Brazzi for an in-depth discussion in this video The handwriting panel, part of Learning the Microsoft Surface Book and Other 2-in-1 Laptops.
- We talked about the onscreen keyboard…in another movie, but we skipped over…the handwriting feature, so I wanna spend…some time with that now.…For this movie, it makes more sense…to work with the tablet section all by itself.…I wanna start with an application…where I would typically write some text.…I already have a document open here in WordPad.…It's a blank document.…We can start from there.…I just wanna make sure that I tap…on the body of the document so my cursor…is there in the document.…Then I'll bring up the onscreen keyboard.…The handwriting tool is just one of the options…in the onscreen keyboard.…
I'm gonna hit the button down in the…bottom right to bring up my options.…Then I'll choose the handwriting tool.…Now I have this line down at the bottom…where I can start writing.…This will work just fine with your finger,…or if you're using the Surface Book,…you also have the option of using the pen stylus.…For now, I'll start with my finger, and then…we'll use the pen in a minute.…We'll take this a little slow at first.…
