One Note handwriting to text conversion

by hairymon / June 16, 2006 11:02 PM PDT

My supervisor has a tablet PC. He currently uses Windows Journal. He wants
his secretary, who does not have a tablet PC, to be able to text-convert his

So he is considering using OneNote. But we discovered something that he
doesn't like. When he does text conversions in Journal, before it finishes
the conversion, it flags words that it thinks it doesn't understand and
easily gives you possible words it thinks it can be for you to change.

OneNote doesn't appear to let you do that, or at least, it doesn't seem
automatic. I couldn't figure it out when I showed him and his secretary the
software, and when I looked it up in Help, it appeared to be a "manual"
process (i.e. instead of initially flagging the possible words for you, you
have to click on what you think is a "wrong word" and click on a button to
get a list of suggested words), and if I'm reading Help right, you can't do
this from a non-tablet PC (the suggested words, etc., not the
handwriting-to-text conversion in and of itself).

Is this true? If not, what am I doing wrong? Please let me know, thanks.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
