Use the Stylus (Inking)

Table of contents

The stylus functions as a pen you can use directly on the device screen to enter text in any applicable fields. You can also use the stylus to open or select options from pick lists and navigate through the interface.

Tip: The device recognizes most print or cursive handwriting, though cursive handwriting usually works better.

In fields containing pick lists, writing a letter brings up the first option in the list beginning with that letter. This feature is typically used in fields with long pick lists. If only one option begins with the letter you entered, it is automatically entered in the selected field.

To use the stylus
  1. Place the tip of the stylus in the field you want to write in. You must start writing within the field itself, but you can use the entire screen to write.

  2. Begin writing. When you are done, your handwriting is converted to text.

    • If you are writing in a field where you must enter a selection, a window appears if there is more than one match for the text you entered. Select the correct option in the window and tap OK. If there is only one match, the selection appears in the field.

    • If you are writing in a free-text field, word suggestions appear beneath your text in case your handwriting was converted incorrectly. If necessary, tap one of the correction buttons to correct your entry.

  3. If the field requires additional information, repeat steps 1-2 as necessary and ensure the text displays correctly.

Tip: If necessary, clear the field to start again. To clear a free-text field, tap the delete icon. To clear a selection field, tap the field, Clear, and then OK.
