Common problems with Tablet PC Input Panel and their solutions

Here are solutions to some common problems with Tablet PC Input Panel.

Input Panel doesn’t correctly recognize what I write.

  • Use handwriting recognition personalization to teach the handwriting recognizer how you write.

For more information, see Handwriting personalization on a Tablet PC.

  • If you’re writing in Chinese (Simplified), Chinese (Traditional), Japanese, or Korean, Input Panel might not recognize proper names or names of streets and parks unless you turn on handwriting recognition for rarely used Chinese, kanji, or hanja characters. One of these input languages must be installed before you can change this setting.

    1. Tap to open Tablet PC Input Panel.
    2. Tap Tools, and then tap Options.
    3. Tap the Ink to text conversion tab, select the Recognize rarely used Chinese, kanji, or hanja characters when converting handwriting to typed text check box, and then tap OK.
