Settings

The settings view can be reached by clicking on the "Show settings menu" item in the toolbar.

  • Transparent input: If on, then the handwriting input window is transparent. Note, that transparent windows are very slow on some devices.
  • Undo/redo: if on, undo/redo functionality is provided. For optimal resource usage, this function should be deactivated.
  • Number of undos: the number of supported undo/redo operations (must be greater than 1). This value should be as low as possible due to mobile device's resource constraints. If "Undo/redo" is switched off, this value will have no effect.
  • Alphanumeric input: If enabled, keyboard-based textinput is possible.
  • Confirm input: If this value is greater than "0" then handwriting text is automatically added after the given time (in miliseconds). A value of "0" means that this function is deactivated.
  • Image size: When images are imported they have to be resized internally due to very limited resources on mobile devices. The lower this value, the lower the image quality. A value of 200 is recommended.
