Newpen allows us to use the entire PDA screen as a graffiti area instead of just the silkscreen. This is usable when you want to input text in the dark area and you can not see silkscreen, silkscreen is hide by active graffiti, no silkscreen device like Handspring Treo.
When newpen is enabled, Graffiti input on screen will start with following two methods:
- Tap Graffiti Shift Indicator
- Input shortcut + s
- On Treo, quick triple option key downs
Cute sound playbacks when Graffiti input on screen becomes enable/disable. When graffiti input is enabled, a rectangle frame is drawn around a Graffiti Shift Indicator. Tapping 0.5 or more seconds without moving pen passes penDown/penUp event as default behavior. With this feature, you can select a text field. Left side of screen is for alphabet and right side is for numeric input like silkscreen. Single tap is not recognized as a start of punctuation mark by default. This allows you to change text insertion point by single tap. A straight line from lower-right to upper left activates punctuation shift. If you want to write "dot", write this stroke twice.
