Microsoft OneNote, on the other hand, is a feature-rich application for taking notes and collecting research, but even though OneNote supports inking, it adopts a more text-centric usage model. This makes perfect sense for OneNote since the majority of OneNote users employ ordinary computers and laptops without inking capabilities.
Thus InkSeine is complementary to OneNote. InkSeine has a simple set of functionality with a pen-centric user interface. InkSeine lacks many features that OneNote users love, including tagging, organizing, and synchronizing notes, automatically saving all entries in a single hierarchically organized notebook, etc. Also, InkSeine does not support text entry at this time. What InkSeine really offers is a unique interface for working with ink.
A: The scroller simulates the wheel on your mouse, so the correct window
must have the input focus for the scroller to work. You need to tap on the
area of the screen you want to scroll, and then touch down inside the
scroller and start circling your pen.
If that still doesn't work, then the window you are trying to scroll may not
support the mouse wheel.
The scroller does not work with Excel (we cannot fix this). Also, we have several reports that it does not work in Firefox, although it has worked in Firefox for other people. We have not been able to track down the problem yet.
oSearch from context menu: This option lets you choose the default type of search that appears in the "green plus" menu.
- Personal Search searches your local hard disk(s).
- Web Search lets you search the Web by default instead.
- Tag for Search creates a search icon but does not immediately open a search. This allows you to return to the icon at a later time and either stroke to the right for Web Search, or down for Personal Search.
oEnd lasso on looking glass as shortcut for search: This option enables a special icon that appears at the start of all lasso selections. Make a complete loop with the lasso and lift over the search icon to Tag the selection for Search. Some people like this feature, but others find it error prone, so we have disabled this feature by default. Give it a try to see if it is for you or not. How to use this feature is illustrated in the selection tutorial for a pre-release version of InkSeine.
oRecognize handwriting to place InkSeine documents in Windows Search Index: By default, InkSeine automatically performs handwriting recognition on all the ink in your InkSeine notes every couple of minutes. This enables your Personal Searches to pick up results for InkSeine notes as well as other text documents on your system. However, the way InkSeine does its handwriting recognition is inefficient and this may bog down your tablet if you have a very dense note, or an older Tablet PC. This option enables you to decrease the frequency of the handwritging recognition, or even turn it off. But if you turn it off, you won't be able to use search to find InkSeine notes, unless the word you are searching for appears in the title of the note.
A: Yes. Use the InkSeine Options command from the options menu at the top of the screen to bring up the options panel, as pictured above. Then use the radio button to select Web Search as your default search type from InkSeine's context menus for selections with ink in them.
A: InkSeine uses Windows Desktop Search for Personal Search queries, but particularly under Windows XP, WDS
takes some time to start when you first turn on your tablet, or after a reboot.
Try the query again in a while and it should work. This is less of a problem for Windows Vista Search.
Windows XP also occasionally has problems with losing Outlook email results from its search index. To remedy this, right-click on the Desktop Search icon in the Windows task tray. Pick the Desktop Search Options command, and then choose "Rebuild Index" to force desktop search to pick up your email results. Again, this problem seems to have been resolved in Vista.
A: Select the lasso tool, and then tap to select exactly the stroke that you
want. You have to tap pretty close to it, and tap-select will select whichever
stroke is on top if there are several nearby.
HOW: Drag the page tabs left and right to rearrange them.
Tapping on the page icon creates a new page at the end of the note,
which you can then drag to a different spot in your note if you want.
Or drag a page to the trash can to delete it! Warning: No undo for page operations.
HOW: From the Internet Explorer window, drag from any link or image to the
task bar and hold your pen over InkSeine. The InkSeine window will come up,
and you can then slide back onto the note page to drop the link or image in
Images that are also links will only import as links, unfortunately, as the Windows Drag & Drop mechanism reports the link, but not the image, to InkSeine.
