Microsoft's new "Shape Writing" keyboard

Post by David Williams » Wed Oct 18, 2017 12:14 am

The SM Office apps only work with this keyboard when keys are used singly. If the mouse or finger is dragged around the keyboard to form words they are not entered. If the same is done with MS Notepad it works fine. Is it possible to correct this?

So you are working with a touch screen? Which Windows version is installed?
