How to prevent TIP icon from appearing in Windows Journal?

Discussion in 'Tablet PC' started by Kevin Perrott, Apr 11, 2005.

  1. I upgraded to SP2 and now the floating TIP icon shows up in Windows
    Journal when there isn't a text box open. It gets in the way of my
    writing and I'd like to turn the 'automatic' appearance of it off.

    Is this possible?

    Just starting writing, Kevin. There's direct input in Windows Journal, and
    if the TIP icon does show up, it'll go away. Mine I guess knows well enough
    to go away when I start writing on the screen. At least it is not appearing
    while I'm writing. Thinking . . . Maybe it is because I changed the
    setting in Journal's Tools/Options/Other to "Enable handwriting

  3. It's definitely not going away while I'm writing.. my handwriting
    recognition option was on.. I've perused other options both for the
    input pad and in Windows Journal and I can't see anything appropriate.
    I thought it was supposed to disappear.. thanks for confirming that.

    If you have any ideas I'd appreciate it.. it's driving me nuts.
    Whenever I get the pen close to the screen it shows up and doesn't go
    away when I start writing.

  4. Hmm..

    I inserted a text box and then deleted it and the icon doesn't appear
    any more.. go figure..
