Got a great suggestion for activating the alternative TIP I've blogged about about earlier on. An annonymous comment suggested that the Ink Everywhere panel only should appear if the pen button was pressed when clicking in the field.
This will make it very easy to perform other tasks like copying, pasting and selecting existing text in the field. First I thought that one should have support for gesturing to perform those operations, but that could be a bit too complicated for ordinary users. Any thoughts?

And I know that it’ll probably be a bit long for you all to travel to Oslo (Norway) to see us. But I just wanted you all to know. You can read more about our band here, and visit our MySpace.com page here. We’re also releasing our new video and ep at the show.
Remember, this is the band I blogged about using my TabletPC when rehearsing :-)

Hope that he isn’t quitting because the Tablet PC market is becomming too small. I belive in the platform and think that a vibrant and good marketplace for third party software is important to ensure growth. So Josh, hope you find something usefull to do, and good luck with finding a new home for TEO.

(Note to self: Remember not to spend this long untill next time you post.)
If you’ve read my blog the last 6 months, you’ve seen that I have created a small tool for writing ink directly in text fields on the screen. One of the obstacles I’ve met when developing the tool has been to get a consistent way of tracking input fields for all programs in every scenario.
The other major issue I’m having is something I feel I need some help answering. How should an alternative Tablet PC Input Panel work? Jan-Kristian correctly pointed out (when commenting my posting) that there are a lot of considerations to take care of, like how to edit ink etc.
I’ve found out that covering all text fields with a semi-transparent inkable field might work if there are enough functionality for editing text already in the field, and for editing the text you’re currently writing. What I’d like you all to do now, is to comment on this post with your concerns and wishes.
Thanks for your feedback.
