Tablet Input Panel and all Handwriting Recognition not present - Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying to use my Wacom Bamboo Fun tablet to write text in various programs. I used to have Windows Vista and a Trust tablet and the TIP installed with the driver software, no problem. New PC, new tablet and now there are no options anywhere in the control panel, programs or search bar to do with handwriting.

    I've tried reinstalling/updating my tablet driver and various other things, but nothing has worked so far and I can't find anywhere to manually download/install the TIP.

    I have Office 2010 and in OneNote the option to recognise ink as writing is greyed out and cannot be selected. The convert to text function can be selected but does not change anything in the document.

  • This is a driver compatibility issue. You need to download Windows 7 driver from the following website.

    I tried it again anyway and it still doesn't work.
